Episode 36 - True Crime Ha-Ha-Holidays

December 20, 2020

Because it’s the holidays, and we brought you a really heavy case last weekend, we figured we would be a little nicer this weekend and do something light.

So, today’s episode is all about bizarre and/or funny crimes that took place around the holidays.

We have lots of naked people, some drugs, and lots of Frosty massacres.

Happy Holidays!

Don't forget about our giveaway - you can find out all about it beginning Monday, 12/21/20 at instagram.com/blackbirdadvocacy

Episode 35 - Daisy and Melinda Coleman Part II

Episode 35 - Daisy and Melinda Coleman Part II

December 13, 2020

Daisy was able to find some light within the darkness, though. She and her older brother, Charlie, became sexual assault survivor advocates and HuffPost named Daisy one of their “13 Most Fearless Teens of 2013.” Netflix even caught wind of Daisy’s incredible story and the lack of justice she received and produced the documentary Audrie & Daisy in 2016. Audrie Pott was another sexual assault survivor documented in the film who took her own life in 2012 due to the trauma and persistent bullying – the same ordeal Daisy had gone through. But soon, tragedy would strike the Coleman family again.

We send so much love and light to Daisy’s surviving brothers, Melinda’s sons, Logan and Charlie, and the rest of the Coleman family as well as everyone at SafeBAE. This episode is in Daisy and Melinda’s honor.

Episode 34 - Daisy and Melinda Coleman Part I

Episode 34 - Daisy and Melinda Coleman Part I

December 12, 2020

Catherine Daisy Coleman was born March 30, 1997 in Albany, Missouri to Melinda Moeller, a veterinarian, and Michael Coleman, a physician. Her family gravitated towards calling her by her middle name, Daisy, and rarely used her first name. She was a bright little girl, so it was only appropriate that the name Daisy stuck.

14-year-old Daisy was a varsity cheerleader and competitive dancer. She was a popular girl who loved to entertain and be a social butterfly. However, that all changed on the night of January 8, 2012.

If you or someone you know needs help, please reach out to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network – RAINN – at 1-800-656-HOPE or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or you can text HOME to 741741 to text with a volunteer from the Crisis Text Line. No one should suffer in silence. We are here to help. You may also reach out to us here at Blackbird for resources, information, as well as support.

December 8, 2020

Daisy Coleman was sexually assaulted at the age of 14 and the aftermath documented what rape culture is like in a small town.

Years later, Daisy would grow up to co-found a non-profit organization called Safe BAE to raise awareness of sexual violence among youth.

Unfortunately, the trauma of Daisy's past could not cease, and she took her own life.

Then, just four months later, her mother, Melinda, also died by suicide.

This Sunday we discuss Daisy and Melinda's story and why it is so important to open the discussion about trauma, mental health, and suicide. Sunday, Dec 13, only on Blackbird.

Episode 33 LIVE from Pod vCon: The Holiday One - The Murder of Sylvia Pardo

December 6, 2020

On December 24, 2008, a frantic 911 call came in to Covina, California dispatch. The caller begged for emergency services stating “he’s still shooting out there. He’s shooting my whole family. My mom’s house is on fire!” Just before the attack, neighbors saw a man dressed as Santa Claus approach the house on Knollcrest Drive carrying what looked like gifts.
