P.I.D. Radio 3/9/24: State of the Octopus


A NEW DOCUSERIES on Netflix had us thinking that somebody had been listening to 15-year-old episodes of P.I.D. Radio.

That’s not the case, of course. The Octopus Murders, a four-part series, is well researched and connected some dots that we hadn’t put together back in 2009. However, it was a bit surreal seeing people whose names we’d become very familiar with, like Danny Casolaro, Michael Riconosciuto, John Philip Nichols, Robert Booth Nichols, Cheri Seymour, and others, on screen. 

If you’re not familiar with “the Octopus,” we refer you to our episode from October 4, 2009, where we summarized the investigation and highly suspicious death of investigative journalist Danny Casolaro in 1991. Casolaro was found dead in a hotel room in Martinsburg, West Virginia with his wrists deeply slashed 10 to 12 times. It was ruled a suicide, despite the impossibility of slashing the second wrist when the tendons of the opposite hand have been severed.

We also discuss this week’s State of the Union address, undoubtedly the angriest SOTU message we’ve ever seen. For a president who claims to be optimistic, Joe Biden sure seems ticked.

Also: If Israel isn’t the “real Israel,” why is the god of Islam and his followers obsessed with destroying it? 

SOLIDARITY MISSION TO ISRAEL! We’re considering another a one-week trip to Israel in November, 2024 to bear witness to what’s happened there since the war with Hamas began. We plan to visit Hostage Square in Tel Aviv, Sderot, the site of the Nova Music Festival, and more. For details, go to GilbertHouse.org/travel.
