Podcast explores Duquesne missing persons cases

Duquesne graduate student Dakota James disappeared this past winter under mysterious circumstances, and after a six-week city-wide search, his body was found in the Ohio River.

Two years earlier, Duquesne nursing student Paul Kochu went missing under mysterious circumstances, and after an extensive search, Kochu’s body was discovered in Wheeling, W.Va.

The striking similarities in the characteristics of the two men and the circumstances of their disappearance are the subject of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s first-ever serialized podcast produced in conjunction with the Center for Media Innovation (CMI.)

Michael A. Fuoco, an enterprise reporter for the Post-Gazette, had been working on a long-form story about the similarities in the cases when an editor’s podcast recommendation induced an idea.

Is American Horror Story Cult About the Smiley Face Murders?

There are a lot of things that make American Horror Story: Cult scary. We’ve got an ever increasing amount of clowns and the manifestation of another truly disturbing phobia. And, like, people are dying every episode. All of these different variables inevitably snowball together: after all, the cult-like clowns are the ones exploiting the phobias of victims and killing them.
