The Setup by Pete Crooks
The pitch went like this: Chris Butler, a retired cop, ran a private investigator firm in Concord, California. His business had a fascinating angleâ€”his firm was staffed entirely by soccer moms.In fact, Butler employed PI Super Moms: attractive, organized, smart, and trained in investigative techniques, self-defense, and weaponry. This American Life host Ira Glass described them as â€œMILF: Charlieâ€™s Angels.â€When this story came across Pete Crooksâ€™s desk when he was working at Diablo magazine in 2010, he was instantly hooked. Heâ€™d heard a little bit about Butler and his super moms in the news; theyâ€™d been featured in People magazine and on Dr. Phil. What Butlerâ€™s publicist was offering was too tantalizing to pass up: an opportunity to ride along with Butler and a few of his sexy PIs as they prepared to start filming a reality TV show.Â He soon found himself deep in the underbelly of fake sting operations, wannabe celebrities, police corruption, drug-dealing, reality television, double-crossing employees, and more twists and turns than a dozen crime thrillers.Thanks to James of From A to Geekz podcast for voicing the disclaimer and Rutherford/Carl Marino!!Additional sources were Diablo Magazine's April 2011 article "The Setup", Carl Marino's IMDB bio, and This American Life ep 447!Music:Jet Fueled VixenMusic from https://filmmusic.io:"Jet Fueled Vixen" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)Licence: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)In two weeks we cover Jack Olsen's Charmer.Tweet at me: @TCbyTBEmail: TCbyTB@gmail.comÂ Support this podcast at â€” https://redcircle.com/true-crime-by-the-book/exclusive-content
