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.

Tonight’s Guests:

  • Journalist Diane Dimond will be discussing the O.J Simpson parole hearing.
  • Author Diane Fanning will be discussing her new book, ‘Bitter Remains’

     On July 13, 2011, Laura Jean Ackerson of Kinston, North Carolina, went to pick up her two toddler sons. It would be the last time she was seen alive…

    Two weeks later, detectives searching for the missing mother made a gruesome discovery on the shores of Oyster Creek near Richmond, Texas—the dismembered body parts of a young woman whom they were able to identify as Laura Ackerson.

    Laura’s ex, Grant Hayes—the father of her two sons—and his wife, Amanda, the mother of his newborn daughter, both pointed the finger at each other as the one guilty of murdering Laura, cutting up her body, and then transporting and disposing of the remains.

    This is the hauntingly true story of a devoted mother, a disturbed couple, and how these horrific events came to pass…

Tonight’s Guest:

A stunning personal account of Janet Merlo’s twenty years of service in the RCMP, with an introduction by Linden MacIntyre. In 2012, Janet Merlo was among the first female RCMP officers to publicly allege she had experienced sexual harassment and gender discrimination while serving in Canada`s national police force. The women kept silent for so long, she says, because there was no one to tell. In this courageous memoir, Janet recalls how her love of policing was soured by covert and overt sexism within the ranks and by an institutional culture that valued toughness and silence over ethics and accountability. Tracing her twenty years in uniform, Merlo’s story details the highs and lows of her career in the RCMP – while her mental health and personal life disintegrated. Eventually, the cost of keeping quiet was simply too high, and her story emerges as a lone, brave voice seeking change.

    • I had the honor of getting to know Cst. Derek Pineo in 2007 at RCMP Depot in 2007. Tragically, Derek lost his life on duty on July 20, 2012 when his police cruiser collided with a moose near Wilkie, SK. Derek was 38 years old. In 2016, I rode the 1st annual Saskatchewan Ride to Remember law enforcement cycling event from Saskatoon Police HQ to the Regina Parliament grounds approx 320km to honor fallen officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. At the end of the ride, we took part in the Saskatchewan Police & Peace Officer’s Memorial situated at the Saskatchewan Parliament grounds. The focus of my ride in 2016 was to honor Derek. This year in 2017, upon speaking with Derek’s wife Natasha, we would like to invite and bring Derek’s son, Kayleb to ride alongside the Ride to Remember to honor his dad.
