"From nine o'clock and glad to welcome on Harold. Check tractor with us this morning and Harold is penned a book called Maniac, which Let me just tell you. I wish this were a work of fiction, Harold, but it is not. You're taking us to 1927 for some chilling history, so welcome to the program. What is the premise behind maniac? Well, first. Thank you for having me on. Uh, some maniac is a nonfiction true crime book about a crime that I have come to believe. Was the worst American crime of the 20th century, even though most of the country has forgotten about it in a small town in Michigan called Bath, the small forming community in May 1927, a respected member of the community, and then name Andrew Ki ho. Who was actually a school board member began to unravels psychologically and descend into paranoia on developed this hatred of his fellow townspeople then because he had because he was a school board member. He had a key to the school and access to the school, and he spent weeks Has night rigging the basement of the school. This was modern knew what they called Consolidated School in the town, which taught Children from elementary through high school. Uh s O Ki Ho spent weeks rigging the basement of the school with World War one surplus dynamite and he had a mechanical Banti made these timers. And set them to go off on the last day of school on guard at around nine o'clock in the morning, when all the kids had assembled The the dynamite went off. Well, unfortunately, much of it did not go off. There was some faulty wiring, apparently, but he did manage to destroy one entire wing of the school. And killed 38 Children and several teachers now and then. Yeah. And then a zoo, The frantic parents and other towns, people, uh Gathered around the rubble and try to save this many kisses they could keyhole loaded his Ford pickup with more dynamite and trap. No And drove it down to the scene of the explosion and called over few of what we would now call first responders and blew himself and movies. Other people up So the bath school disaster was The worst school massacre in U. S history. It was the worst act of Dona was the worst act of domestic terrorism. Um, before Timothy McVeigh blew up that building in Oklahoma City, and it was the first and as far as I know the on Lee suicide car bombing in our history. Well, Harold, this is this is just blows my mind. Harold Schechter is with us today. And Harold is an American true crime writer specializing in serial killers. You you have followed some pretty amazing And might I say, And I don't mean this in a critical wait. Disgusting stories in your career. Uh, what has attracted you to this particular genre? Uh um, Well, that's complicated Story. Um, I actually first became interested in it many years ago. I think I've been doing this for about 30 years now, um, when I was actually researching Completely different kind of book about the movies. And I discovered that to my favorite Har movies. My two favorite our movie Psycho. And Texas Chainsaw Massacre had actually both been inspired by a real crime. Um, this, uh Midwestern Wisconsin, former name Edward gained living in a small town called Plainfield, who Was a serial killer and Anyway, I don't want to go into the alley. Disturbing details. Yeah, but But in any case, you know that that was very fascinating to me that those two movies were actually based on a real crime. Um, so I began to explore that and wrote a book about that and You know, One thing led to another. And then I became a true crime writer. I'm curious, Harold in looking at all of this shit, You must be fascinated also by the study of the human condition and human tendencies in human nature, which could be on one hand, extremely gracious and benevolent and on the other hand as you put it out extremely grizzly. What do you What do you take away from studying these people? I'm sorry. What do I think of what? Studying the people? What do you What impression? Do your life What do you learn from studying these people cause this interesting study and the Inhumans Well, you know, you're totally right. You know, A lot of people are not aware of this about me. But I was a literature professor for 42. Years on my field was literature and psychology, So I got my PhD Doing studies applying certain kinds of psychological concepts, toe literature, and I have always been interested in what you might say the dark side of Human psychology on different kinds of aberrations. Um, you know, I think that one of the things you learn is Aziz. You are saying You know, we're very complex creatures. Human beings. Um, you know, there's a part of our of us better, very moral. Capable of amazing altruism and generosity and obviously tenderness and love. But you know, there is what one psychologist called the shadow side to all of us. I think it's one of the reasons people are interested in reading about true crime. Are watching all these cable TV shows about true crime. You know, it's a way of kind of safely indulging in our satisfying some of those darker impulses. Obviously the great difference and it's a major difference. Um, you know, between people like Andrew Ki ho and the rest of us is, you know they actually act out these terrible impulses. So Yeah, That's Yeah, That's my feeling about that. Well, the book is maniac and the events that took place in bath in 1927 with Andrew Keogh. Why did why did we not hear more about this? It was. I'm sure a big deal at the time, but as you point out in the book, it was overshadowed pretty quickly. Yeah. I mean, it happened. You know, when it first happened, it was front page news all across the country and even internationally, but just a couple of days after it happened. Charles Lindbergh made his ethical and really world changing flight s solo flight across the Atlantic from New York to Paris. On that immediately displaced every other story, including the bath school disaster. Uh, you know, if you the day after the bath school disaster, The New York Times, for example, it was the lead story on the front page of the times two days later. The time is devoted its 1st 16 pages Toe Lindbergh's flight. I mean, it was all that you know the media talk about. So that was one of the main reasons I think that it Immediately got relegated to security. Talk about your news cycle. We talk about how quickly something fades in our 24 hour news cycle, But I guess things really haven't changed all that much in that regard. Where can we find the book maniac? How do we get it, Harold? Well, I don't know how many bookstores air open in these pandemic times, but certainly on Amazon available starting today, actually excellent maniac, his name of the book. It's coming out. Today. We've been speaking with his author Harold Schechter, who has been with us this morning herald. Thanks for spending time with us and Grizzly is it is It's a piece of our history and we need to be aware of it. So thank you for bringing that forward as well. Thank you so much. Take care where it ate 49 in north Georgia's news. Talk Wdun. Good to have you along with us. I'm not sure that I'm not sure that Harold and I would have a very good breakfast conversation. Especially strong about serial killers. Mitch, this is just chilling stuff. If you look through this book, this guy was just so deranged. It's just frightening. Yeah, I don't I don't know a lot about that incident, but I know a little bit. And so I think I'm interested in reading that book. Well, I have a copy of it on my desk and you're more than welcome to it because I've flipped through it. And this guy creeps me out. So I love the bookstore and Bill Maynes office..

We hope you enjoy this podcast and welcome john. Thank you very much. Could be your author and i'm glad that you took time to join us. We're interested in listening to some stories about the day of days which is a historical fiction and tell tell us just a summary of what dapple gifts and the reason that i was drawn to this. Not many people know though. I think here in michigan is better known than other parts of the country. This historical fiction. is based on the real incident. That occurred in town of bath which is about ten miles north east of lansing in may of nineteen twenty seven terrible incident. Where on the day before graduation. The the town's relatively new a local farmer named andrew p keo had Spent weeks of quite possibly months wiring the entire building. This large brick building with hundreds of pounds of explosives and setting it up with timers and so forth so that the morning of may eighteenth. He detonated fortunately not the entire building but a good portion of the building the number of people who are maimed in wounded. I don't think has ever been clearly determined. But they were before seriously injured on. Carry those injuries for longtime if not for the rest of their lives so the story revolves around the town of bath leading up to this incident. denison description of that particular day in in considerable detail and then it follows the main characters of the story who are fictional most part into the rest of their lives Trying to describe what the ramifications of this may have been for them how influenced the way they viewed life and how. They live the rest of their days. The book is in jonrowe historical fiction. If that isn't john raymond. I believe so. I'm a little. I'm a little wary of pigeonholing anybody's books particularly might say this is historical fiction. But there's no denying that this is based on real historical. It's sometimes it seems to me that when people say all historical fiction. It's it's almost like they're trying to put it away in a corner like that. Somehow diminishes is relevance to today when my hope is that even though this book describes a an occurrence that the kim about nearly a decade ago nineteen twenty seven. There are parallels. I don't go. i don't think. I go overboard in trying to draw those parallels. But i would hope that a contemporary reader would see that there are certainly connections between what happened then in what the sorts of things that we have seen in recent we could draw some parallels but you would prefer the reader draw their own. Yeah sure you know i. I try not to use my books as as a bully. Pulpit if you will. I mean i have my say but my hope is if i described the environment in this case a small rural a farm town in the early stages of twentieth century and how the people lived Before this incident and then described the incident and then you know how they came out of it the other side. My hope is that I mean readers are going to take away a very different feelings and thoughts from it I would imagine So i i think you know once you finished writing a novel you of have to let it go. I've had people contact me right me or talk to me. And they told me what they thought about one of my books. And sometimes i'm not in my head in saying yes that makes perfect sense to me but there have been times when people said things. I'm going really..
