Alright lads, this week we're diving into notorious tales of criminal activity and spooky paranormal stuff.
In our second conversation with Andi we talk about her fascination with True Crime and why as a genre it attracts so much attention. Digging deeper into the topic, we take a look at the infamous Heaven’s Gate cult. In particular, the groups leaders Ti and Do, their fate and the niche 90s website for Heaven’s Gate. We also cast a lens over cults in general. The attraction and the psychology associated with them.
We also open up the case file on notorious killer Ed Gein and pry into his mommy issues. Reveal some creepy personal anecdotes. Take a trip to Skinwalker Ranch. Contemplate paranormal activity as a whole and draw parallels between alien behaviour and David Blaine.
Yes, that David Blaine.

DIMED OUT PODCAST – EPISODE 14: MINDFULNESS, MEDITATION AND THE MANY LEVELS OF TIK TOK
In the first of two conversations we tackle a number of personal and interpersonal issues such as stockpiling problems, internal pressure valves and doomscrolling. We also look at mindfulness as a whole. Specific mindfulness exercises and how positive affirmations along with asking for help can be great for your mental health.
Outside of self love and healing, we take a pretty deep dive into the most topical social media platform out there right now, Tik Tok. Digging a little deeper I discover it’s not just dance routines, but a multi-layered looking glass. One that displays the good, the bad and the ugly side of internet consumption and digital creation.
