True Crime

Aside from being a domestic terrorist and anarchist, Ted Kaczynski was also a math prodigy and college professor at one point in his life. As time went on, Kaczynski decided to leave his life in the academic world for one of solitude away from other people and technology. In 1978, he began his long reign of terror that would plague people with fear and puzzle the FBI for years until he was arrested in April 1996. Over the span of 17 years, he killed 3 people and injured 23 others by sending 16 untraceable homemade bombs that he built himself to random targets in an attempt to start “a revolution against the industrial system.” --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/serialbanter/message
