Hi everyone,

Just heard about this case for the very first time on a Podcast a few days ago. I can't believe I've never heard of it since I was born and raised in CA almost my whole life.
Searched for more info and found this site.
I have seen the film on YouTube and understand the person who produced it is not held to a very high regard on here. I've been trying to get up to speed on the board archives.

Welcome to the site and forum. If I may ask, do you recall which podcast mentioned the case? Link, if possible?

Thx- dmac

Hi Dmac,

Thanks for activating my account. The podcast was done by "Thinking Sideways." They discuss various unsolved murders, mysteries, phenomena etc.
After reading alot of the information made available on this site, it appears to me their episode/take on the murders was minimaly researched and sloppy at best.
Here is the link (I hope)
http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3 ... urders.mp3
If I screwed up the link their website is http://thinkingsidewayspodcast.com. The Keddie murders episode is listed second post from the top and can be downloaded there.

What a hideous podcast! Their work is beneath contempt, and their inept deductions make their piss-poor assumptions appear brilliant by comparison. It seems they skimmed over photos, read beginnings of a few threads (not the ends of threads when, after sometimes years of discussion and new evidence, the topic often evolves into something both current and potent), and jotted down a few things to later misquote and misinterpret. One thing they said stands out as the hallmark of their research ethic: "The[ keddie28] site has TOO MUCH information!"

Despite this 'major problem' of keddie28.com going overboard on details in order to be both transparent and open for interpretation/discourse, 'sideways' still failed to read or understand basic concepts of the case. They also got ages wrong, claimed Sue was on the couch, completely missed Bo and his mob connections, ignored LE corruption, misinterpreted why each suspect IS a suspect, gave naff descriptions of staging, etc. etc. If you're familiar with any of the plethora of Keddie Case recaps on blogs/forums or in news articles, where the 'research' is lazy to nonexistent and the summary is BS, imagine three radio-host-wannabes jabbering on aimlessly for 75 minutes, treating murder as if they are Hollywood gossip columnists, guffawing at all the wrong places. A true disservice to the case, and to intelligent thought.

They try to come off like smarmy morning shock-jocks, and they succeed. Mostly, they suck. Loads of mangled misinformation in a soggy breakfast bowl of hackneyed 90s morning-show cliches.

I so agree with you dmac. I listened to that podcast shortly after i heard of the keddie murders, and before i found your site. i assumed it would be interesting/informative. NOT. I came away feeling offended on behalf of the victims, because they did not deserve to be discussed/dismissed like that...."oh, they all got killed, and it was really bloody and horrible". <inane giggling> Murder is an insult to the living and the dead. The first evening I read over your site, I came away very sad and depressed (you may find that odd, over people i have never met, and who have been dead for 30 years)...but they were so young, even Sue. Yes, they all had problems and issues and emotional baggage. But as long as they were alive, they had a chance to overcome those things, get past them, outgrow them, work through them. I wonder what those kids would have done in their lives, if they had been allowed to live them. What would Sue have done? She was taking business classes, and was a good student, so she must have wanted to improve herself and her life. Somebody took that chance away from them...for no good reason at all...and got away with it. I am so glad that the people here are trying to fix that. Even if the killers are dead...it needs to be finished.

This podcast was infuriating to listen to-their attempts at humor were insensitive and in poor taste, considering the subject matter.
