Show Notes

Hey, friend,

Thank you for joining me for Running Scared with Coach Christine.

If you are a runner and a true crime enthusiast, you have found your corner of the internet!

This true crime express run-cast is a solid base-building conversation-paced workout while we learn about La Bestia/The Beast from Dr. Oriquedea from one of my favorite podcasts, Monstras.

Dr. Orquidea is the co-creator and co-host of Monstras Podcast. Dr. O and her co-host Brenda Salguero created Monstras to fill a void in the English-speaking podcast community. Using their expertise and experiences, they explore the world of Latin American and Latinx folklore, horror, death, and of course, monsters.

Dr. O and Brenda recently explored the case you will be hearing today during their summer series, Verano Peligroso. You can hear the full story or explore some of their other incredible episodes here.

You can find them on social media everywhere at MonstrasPodcast and on Patreon here.

Make sure to sign up to get advanced notice of their super hot merch that will drop soon!

Alright, friends, Trigger warning out the wazoo - Dr. O kept it super light during this conversation. Still, in discussing The Beast, Luis Garavito, it is almost impossible not to discuss that he targeted, abducted, tortured, raped, and killed children/young boys.

If this is not for you, we get it, please check out one of my lighter workouts like The Thwarted Kidnapping of Princess Anne or The Blade Runner
