Serial Killer month continues as Eric and Marie welcome Dr. Scott Bonn to the program this week discussing his research of notorious serial killers and his book "Why we love Serial Killers."
Dr. Scott Bonn (“Doc Bonn”) is Professor of Criminology, media expert and analyst, public speaker and author. He is an expert on criminal behavior and the motivations of criminals. He offers insights into various types of crime, including white-collar, state crime, bullying, domestic violence, sexual assault and serial homicide. His expert commentary frequently appears in the popular news media.
Doc Bonn is the author of “Mass Deception: Moral Panic and the U.S. War on Iraq,” a critically acclaimed book on war crime and terrorism from Rutgers University Press (2010). His latest book is on the public's fascination with serial killers in which he offers insights into the minds of infamous predators and explains how and why serial killers are often transformed into ghoulish popular culture celebrities by the media. Titled "Why We Love Serial Killers" the book is published by Skyhorse Press and released in October, 2014.
Professor Bonn is not your average academic. He combines the knowledge and skills of an academic scholar with more than twenty years of senior-level corporate experience in advertising and news and entertainment media. As such, he has unique insights into the public’s attitudes and beliefs, how they are shaped, and the agenda-setting powers of political leaders and the news media.
Doc Bonn has developed a unique, integrated, and interdisciplinary theory called “critical communication” to explain how state officials and the news media actually shape public opinion on complex issues such as homicide, capital punishment, drugs, abortion and terrorism.
Doc Bonn received a doctorate in sociology (criminology) at the University of Miami, FL, and a masters degree in criminal justice administration at San Jose State University. He teaches courses in criminology, sociology of deviance, media and crime, and criminal justice. His primary research interests include white-collar crime, state crime, domestic violence, serial homicide and how the media influence society.
Prior to his academic career, Bonn held high-ranking corporate positions such as Vice President at NBC Television Network, and Executive Vice President at SonicNet, a leading music website, now a part of MTV Networks. He resides in Manhattan, New York.

June 03, 2015 12:51 PM PDT
June is another topic theme month as we look into the minds and motives of some of America's most notorious serial killers. We start off the month by welcoming back Author Jeff Mudgett, great great grandson to America's first serial killer H.H. Holmes. We'll talk to Jeff about his startling discovery of his heritage to Holmes and his book written on the life and brutal murders of H.H. Holmes.
Jeff Mudgett was living a normal life as a practicing attorney when at age 40 he was thrust into the most harrowing chapter of his life.
Learning the facts about his ancestry plunged Mudgett into a full investigation about the forefather from which he unexpectedly learned he was descended, the infamous serial killer, H. H. Holmes.
His book, Bloodstains, takes readers through history, perhaps learning more than they wished to know about the terror and horror Holmes (his great-great-grandfather, Herman Webster Mudgett) reigned down upon innocent victims during the late 19th century. Using the Holmes’ diaries, as depicted in the story, Jeff Mudgett gives us a glimpse into mysteries yet unsolved.
For those who are not familiar with H. H. Holmes and his “Murder Castle” built during the construction of the World's Columbain Exposition in Chicago in 1893, Mudgett’s book, BLOODSTAINS, tells the story from a completely new angle, a personal history combined with methodical research into an ancestor no one would willingly claim. Herman Webster Mudgett was a swinder, a con man, a womanizer and, at his worst, H. H. Holmes, the most atrocious serial killer of all time.
The success of BLOODSTAINS has been a phenomena for a self-published, first time author. Turning down offers from publishers, Mudgett decided to keep control of the book and the way the story was told – his acquaintance with the subject matter couldn’t be turned over to editors and publishers to change.
BLOODSTAINS is Jeff Mudgett’s story and Jeff Mudgett’s book.5/31/2015 Actress, Comedian, Author, Producer Brett Butler
May 26, 2015 12:35 PM PDT
This week will be one of our most exciting episodes of BTE Radio as we welcome our most noted and recognizable guest yet!
Then at 8:30 pm Eric and Marie are honored to welcome Comedian, Actress, N.Y. Times Best Selling Author and Producer, Brett Butler.
It's truly an honor to welcome Brett to the show this week as she shares details about her gifts and talents in the Psychic realm and we talk all things Paranormal this week.
She is Brett Butler – You know her. You love her. HEY, just play along…
From the Hills of Georgia to the Hills of Hollywood she’s driven mighty far just to be here. Born in Montgomery and growing up outside Atlanta’s metropolis -- Brett has lived it, she’s seen it and you can bet she’s heard it too. How else could she hit almost 30 years in the business? Being the eldest of five sisters (we counted twice just to make sure) should have given her plenty of insight into a standup routine. It took a bit more than just five sisters and being raised in the south though. The world got their first taste of the comedic southerner on The Tonight Show in 1987 – The same year a breakthrough came on television as a writer for Country Music Superstar Dolly Parton. Keeping a heavy beat on the New York stand up circuit Brett was unbeknownst on her way to prime time.
In 1992 Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner caught Brett's act and approached her about a role in an upcoming sitcom they were working on. Grace Under Fire was born and Grace Kelly met the world in 1993 premiering on ABC. Brett starred as Grace Kelly, the funny yet witty divorced mother of 3 children with ties to her abusive ex-husband. The show became a prime time hit in its first season. During this time Brett won a Peoples Choice Award for Favorite Female Performer in a New TV Series as well as a Q Award for Best Actress in a Quality Comedy Series. Brett was also nominated for two Golden Globe Awards and three Q Awards (Viewers for Quality Television Awards).Grace Under Fire aired for 5 seasons.
About Me After the 112th episode in 1998 the show came to an end and shortly after, Brett retreated home.
Back in Georgia, she set up shop on a beautiful farm with fifteen animals and the stillness of serenity. Wanting to rediscover life outside of Hollywood, Brett was able to do just that on her north Georgia farm. Animals have long been a part of Brett's life -- now with the passion she's always put forth and being on a farm with plenty of room and time she was able to accommodate her desire to work with them. Dogs, cats, horses and livestock of all kinds -- there were plenty of animals to call her own. Brett's work with local humane societies and animal rescue orginizations consumed the majority of her time back on the farm. While rehabilitating animals, she also found the time to keep writing, touring her standup act and most of all acting. During this time she was cast in roles far and wide including: "Mrs. Harris" (Movie), "My Name is Earl" (TV Series), "Archer" (TV Series) and "The Young and the Restless" (TV Series).
Most recently, Brett has traded in the rolling hills of the Georgia farm for the big city lights of Hollywood California. This time she's been keeping busy filming a recurring role on Charlie Sheen's hit FX sitcom "Anger Management" and her recurring role on the CBS Soap "The Young and the Restless." Keeping her stand up comedy up to par and with more projects in the works -- who knows where you could see the Southern Belle of Comedy next.

This week Eric and Marie look to the heavens as we take a look at the UFO Phenomenon with Robert Davis Phd and author of The UFO Phenomenon. Are you a believver in extra-terrestrial live and UFO's? Maybe after Sunday night you will believe!
Robert Davis, Ph.D is an internationally recognized scientist in his field, and served as a professor at the State University of New York for over 30 years. He graduated with a B.A. and M.A. from the City University of New York and with a Ph.D in Hearing Science and Audiology from The Ohio State University. Dr. Davis has published over 40 articles in scholarly journals and several book chapters on various topics in clinical audiology, the effects of noise on hearing, and auditory neuroscience. He has also lectured on these topics at national and international conferences and was awarded several major grants to fund research in the hearing sciences. His research and investigation into the UFO phenomenon convinced him that the phenomenon remains unresolved, is a source of considerable debate among millions worldwide, and is a very important concern unfortunately ignored by the general scientific community. He advocates for the need to advance our understanding of the phenomenon through the development of a governance structure to provide the necessary leadership, direction, and related resource support, both human and fiscal, for a multidisciplinary team of leading scholars to study the phenomenon.
Dr. Davis has written a book on the UFO phenomenon, entitled The UFO Phenomenon: Should I Believe?
