So I was a little suspicious about the conspiracies coming out of the RFK Tapes Podcast (an offshoot from the team from CrimeTown - hosted by Zac Stuart-Pontier). SPOILERS AHEAD! BTW.
But when I started listening, I got sucked into co-host Bill Klaber's calm but intense insistence that something's up. Bill has been following this for years, and a high profile politico, p Congressman Allard Lowenstein, had been presenting credible theories as well. (Sadly, he met his own untimely death similar to Kennedy.)
Then as an aside - so casually - a bonus episode, featuring a woman, Geneva White, who (SPOILERS!!) overheard a conversation about the plot to kill JFK on a near deathbed confession - really gives one pause. Are these guys really on to something? I found something interesting online about another deathbed confession about the assassination that will lead you right down a deep, dark rabbit hole. (Keep looking - here, and here.) Who knows?
With RFK, there seems to be more openness about it - so many witnesses, after all - yet because there was no social media or widespread instant communication, the LAPD were easily able to sweep a key aspects of the case under the rug. The most stunning example of this is the latest episode, The Girl In the Polka Dot Dress. There is a witness at the shooting who LITERALLY SAW A WOMAN IN A POLKA DOT DRESS RUN PAST HER AND SAY "WE SHOT HIM" who also SPOKE ABOUT THIS ON THE NEWS, but the police brainwash her into recanting. The tapes are compelling and I'm now about convinced Sirhan Sirhan didn't act alone.
Will this be the first podcast to crack open a national conspiracy? Or will we keep ruminating on all things Kennedy conspiracies for infinity with no resolution? Till we find out, it's entertaining listening, that's for sure.
