Erik Rivenes, host of the Most Notorious and Minnesota's Most Notorious podcasts, has spent over twenty years compiling a file of historical true crime stories from his native state of Minnesota. These stories are presented here, in titillating, tragic, often gruesome and occasionally bizarre detail.
"Most Notorious! could quite possibly be just an excuse for host Erik Rivenes to interview his favorite writers – but even if that were the impetus, the result is excellent. Each week Rivenes, a historical detective novelist, posts lengthy interviews he's conducted with people who literally wrote the book on a murder or other gruesome event – from Joseph Conforti on Lizzie Borden's 1892 parricide, to Michael Fedo on the 1920 lynching of three young African American men in Duluth, Minnesota. Rivenes, who was a professional 19th-century reenactor and led Saint Paul Gangster Tours before settling into a career as a teacher and writer, also has produced audio tours of Minneapolis. Though the production quality isn't particularly spectacular, the podcast is impressive because of Rivenes' insatiable curiosity and pointed questions, which make even the most seasoned experts reconsider the stories they know so well." - Rolling Stone
