Scared Monkeys Radio




For over a decade, Dana Pretzer has been doing his own brand of unique, entertaining, informed and refreshing style of talk radio. Talk radio where he allows the guest to talk, answer questions and inform the listeners on the important news stories of the day. Dana refers to it as "Main Street Media." We like to refer to it as a welcome and appreciated change.

Dana Pretzer brings his energetic yet relaxed demeanor and his well prepared yet spontaneous style of interviews to Scared Monkeys. Along with some of the biggest and most high-profile guests in the news today. Dana also brings a background in satellite radio and over 20 years in law enforcement. That, coupled with his relaxed yet professional and focused demeanor, makes him a natural behind the SMR microphone.

Dana and Scared Monkeys Radio focuses on Missing Persons, Unsolved Mysteries, Victims Rights, Politics, Crime & Punishment, Exploited Children, Entertainment, Technology and whatever the breaking and relevant stories are of the day. The stories that people want to talk about and hear.

Would you kill for love? True-crime master Ron Franscell tells the grisly story of Alice and Gerald Uden, a loving couple who murdered at least four people, and live happily ever after–while cops try for decades to piece together a petrifying tale of murder and secrets. The appalling details are made even more vivid by the author’s familiarity with the Wyoming times and places that formed the backdrop of his national bestseller The Darkest Night.

  • Author and Clinical Psychologist  Dr Gary Brucato discussing his book, ‘The New Evil’

Revisiting Dr. Michael Stone’s groundbreaking 22-level Gradations of Evil Scale, a hierarchy of evil behavior first introduced in the book The Anatomy of Evil, Stone and Dr. Gary Brucato, a fellow violence and serious psychopathology expert, here provide even more detail, using dozens of cases to exemplify the categories along the continuum. The New Evil also presents compelling evidence that, since a cultural tipping-point in the 1960s, certain types of violent crime have emerged that in earlier decades never or very rarely occurred.

Tonight’s guest:

Jason B. Jones New Podcaster Investigates the Unsolved Murder of his Own Grandmother.

Knock Knock: The Unsolved Murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler is the haunting, captivating and very personal story of the host, Jason B. Jones.

Jones said he was introduced to evil at 10 years old when his grandmother, Betty Jones, was gruesomely murdered in a case that would get national attention. Nearly 30 years later, with no active leads, he is opening his own look into the so-called “Labor Day Murders.”

The in-depth podcast launches September 3rd. Listeners will hear interviews with the current lead investigator, family members, journalists and people close to Betty Jones. Jason B. Jones even sits down with the current owner of the house she was murdered in. “Growing up, it was a taboo topic that we didn’t talk about because of the pain and the questions that came along with it. As I became an adult, and grew more curious about my past, who I was and how this traumatic event affected my childhood; I quickly realized there weren’t many answers,” said Jones.

Like other true crime podcasts like Serial and Up and Vanished, Jones hopes he can find real answers for the small town in Mississippi, his family, and himself, “I’m learning not just how she died, but more importantly how she lived.”

Jason B. Jones works in the music industry as Creative Director at Integrity Music based in Nashville, Tennessee and is also creator of the podcast ‘Knock Knock: The Unsolved Murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler.’

Jason grew up with a love for music that eventually led him to a career in the music industry where he now supports musicians, amplifying their music and message. Over the last 15 years, he has worked closely with countless directors, photographers, writers, etc to create inspiring multi-media marketing from videos, imaging, digital design, branding, etc. Jason has worked alongside artists such as TobyMac, Amy Grant, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith and Kari Jobe, to name a few.

Knock Knock Podcast focuses on the violent unsolved murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler. On Monday, September 3rd 1990, they were gruesomely raped and killed in Starkville, Mississippi in an unsolved case known as the “Labor Day Murders”. Their story received national attention on America’s Most Wanted, artist renderings of the suspect have been made and updated, DNA tests have been run and rerun. But still, the killer has never been found. 27 years later, this case remains cold and unsolved. Throughout this podcast we will dig into the details of this crime, make strides toward uncovering answers, and seek justice for the lives of these victims.

Final Exam

Full Bio
Diane Dimond is one of the few journalists to have mastered the art of her craft across all platforms – radio, television, books and as a syndicated columnist. As such she defies a single category.

Dimond’s greatest talent may be her ability to communicate complicated stories in an understandable, common-sense way. Her reputation as a fearless investigative reporter has won admiration from her peers but she never lost the ethical and moral lessons learned growing up as an only child in a middle class home in the Southwest.

Tonight’s Guests:

A pervasive and destructive problem is afflicting our current justice system, eroding community confidence in law enforcement. “Shadow vigilantism” is a vicious cycle in which ordinary people, as well as criminal justice officials, are so fed up with the system’s failures that they distort and subvert the system to force it to do the justice that it seems reluctant to do on its own. The effects of this lack of trust are pervasive and pernicious: citizens refuse to report a crime or help investigators; jurors refuse to indict or convict; and officials manipulate a system that is perceived to be unreliable. This downward spiral eventually undermines the moral authority of law enforcement and creates widening rifts in the community.
