    This is the part of the documentary that I have a hard time reconciling. My wife and I watched it and we agreed that (in our very non expert opinion) it doesn't matter whether or not we all believe he visited her and then just left. The important thing is that she believes it happened, and it's given her some small sense of comfort to believe he's somewhere out there, living quietly and hopefully well. Not exactly closure, but like an acceptable resolution for her.

    I don't know...I just feel nothing but bad for her. It's a parent's worst nightmare, and I can't imagine living it like she has.

    Thanks, Charter.

    (The Jew) seemed pertinent to the description of that clip.

    See now your working towards that CIA link. There has long been speculation that there is a "good side" and "bad side" in the CIA. Just think that someone like Anthony Wierner wasn't creepy enough and got kicked out of the club..... I probably spend to much time chasing the damn rabbits...

    One Omaha sex worker claims to have seen VP George Bush as a few of the parties, saw Bush giving money to someone and leaving with a young boy.

    Not a rabbit hole but a whole lot of BS right there.

    Yeah, VP Bush didn't need to go to the parties himself, he just had the kids delivered to DC.

    Then there is the theory that this all comes back to Jerry Sandusky and top White House officials including former President George HW Bush. There are tons of stuff on the interwebs that links this all together. Investigate it on your own. It's a sad but fascinating subject.

    Here's a quick wiki on many of the large child sex abuse claims from that era that were proven to be bogus. Lots of satanism, lots of mysterious men, etc...

    I don't want any sex abuse claims on children to be true but I know that is unrealistic. But I think there are more than a few good people in jail based on interrogations of 2 year olds conducted by well-meaning investigators.

    No that wasn't directed at you. I meant to say that in the original post, sorry!

    For those that think these things don't go high up (White House, etc.) it is far easier to believe when you see headlines like this.
    Keep in mind, this is not some blog, this was from the Washington Post.

    I wonder if he even wanted to stay when he met his mother in 1997? After living that life for so long how could you?

    As others have mentioned it is a terrible thing. Hard to imagine that type of brutality. Some of the Bonacci stuff is really hard to read/watch.

    That being said it's facinating. Can't get away from the similarities between Jeff Gannon and Johnny. Gannon was the last name of the editor of the DM register at the time? Is this right? And obviously the same initials.

    Lots of conspiracies out there.

    I don't even want to imagine what the pop-up ads on your computers must be like with all of this sort of Googling. :eek:

    Thanks for this Charter. Really good interview. I wasn't familiar with this story. Definitely going home to watch the Netflix doc too.

    Off topic but, I typically listen to podcasts at 1.5x speed. Noreen actually sounded fairly normal. Charter's voice was flying. Kind of funny listening to it.

    Thanks for the interview Charter, great work. My wife and I had just watched the documentary a few weeks ago so it was still fresh in my mind. There were a few items she mentioned that weren't in the documentary so it was nice to see it a slightly different way.

    I am super intrigued by this story, and all the conspiracy theories. I just can't imagine being in her place and being "ok" with knowing he is out there but not needing to find him. I understand it when she explains it but if that was my kid, and I still had reason to believe he was out there, it would be hard for me to be ok with it, id try everything to find him.

    I jumped down the rabbit hole. Jesus Christ. Interesting stuff about Hunter S. Thompson. I knew he was kinda F'd up, but he was apparently REALLY F'd up. (Allegedly)

    Fascinating interview. I'm not from Central Iowa so I knew very little about the details of the case.

    Sad deal all around. :(

    Thanks for doing this. :)

    Good interview. Chilling. And bizarre how she was stone-walled by certain individuals.
