Have Giants Ever Existed? – The Kandahar Giant – S02E08



This episode, the Dicks solve a gigantic goodie.

A Mammoth Mystery!

Are there giants?

Apparently the US killed one in the mountains of Afghanistan in the early 2000s.
We solve this pretty easily and learn about all sorts of stuff.

Giants from across the world, gigantism, the Bible story giants and Gilgamesh.

And officer Virgil is here to help us with another mystery.

Where the fuck is Abigail?

All we needed to solve this case was to look and study the following websites:

The Axeman of New Orleans – The Vendetta – S02E03



Today, Darron Wood, executive producer of the hit podcast Defense Diaries, hires US to solve a case for HIM.

As a New Orleans guy, this one has been haunting him his whole life, who was the Axeman of New Orleans.

The Dicks take the case and, spoiler alert, we figured it out.

All the way we learned about how the Axeman didn’t like a very specific group of people, Italian Culture and how the Axeman brought an entire city to the dance floor for one night under threat of death if they did not.
