We speak to Kenneth Williams, a 30-year veteran of the FBI who was a central figure in the 9/11 investigation. He wrote the “Phoenix Memo” which warned FBI headquarters a full two months prior to the 9/11 attacks that Muslim extremists tied to Osama Bin Laden had enrolled in flight schools in Arizona. No action was taken as a result of the memo, which is cited as one of the key intelligence failures leading up to the 9/11 attack. Williams provides a fascinating analysis of the Las Vegas Shooting. He goes out of his way in an attempt to discredit conspiracy theories, and gives very little credence to ISIS’s claim of responsibility despite the terror group’s track record.
Doug Poppa, a 20-year Las Vegas strip security director shares insight about Mandalay Bay failures which ultimately led to the horrific shooting. As the author of 60 articles on the shooting, he also chastises the Las Vegas Police for mishandling the investigation and for its refusal to release basic information, most importantly “lock interrogation reports” which could definitively prove whether there were additional shooters.
Renowned terror expert Veryan Khan shares her insight into ISIS and its likely role in the Las Vegas shooting. Khan is the Editorial Director of the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium (TRAC) and has served as a terror expert for CNN and Fox News. She describes the process by which ISIS analyzes and takes credit for terror activities around the world. She states conclusively that, contrary to common perception, ISIS does not take responsibility for activity without concrete evidence of a connection. ISIS claimed responsibility for the Las Vegas shooting within hours of the attack.
We examine 25 audio clips taken from over 60 hours of police scanner audio from the night of the shooting. Police are called to the Bellagio, New York New York, Tropicana, and Hard Rock hotels to address active shooter reports. The Las Vegas Police acknowledge these reports, but to this day have yet to issue any report regarding what they encountered at these locations. How is this possible?! We investigate it with someone who has archived everything ever written or recorded about the shooting, including many items which have since been taken down from the internet.
We go to Las Vegas and meet with two Las Vegas Review Reporters, Rachel Crosby and Mike Shoro who reported from the site of the shooting that night and have been covering the investigation ever since. Then we play and comment on the rarely heard, entire interview given by brother Eric Paddock two days after the shooting. Brother Bruce told us he wanted to “kill” Eric over this interview. What is it that Eric said that so upset Bruce? We break down the fascinating interview to find out.
We follow up the interview with the shooter’s brother Bruce Paddock with a deeper look inside the mental issues in the family. Dr. James Fallon is a famous neuroscientist who wrote an incredible book about the brain of a psychopath and the nature and nurture combination that can create one. He provides a haunting look into the mind of Stephen Paddock and gives an eerily compelling explanation for why he did what he did. We also talk to former FBI Special Agent Chris Quick, who led the Dylann Roof white supremacist shooting in Charleston, SC investigation, who provides expert analysis on the status of the FBI investigation, now six months old but with still yet up to another six months to go.
On the six month anniversary of the Shooting, we recognize the victims of the shooting. We interview a couple who barely made it out alive. Harry Romero, there enjoying a great weekend with his wife Claudia, was shot in both legs. They finally made it to a hospital, but that is just the beginning of the story. Then it is Part II of our exclusive interview with the shooter's brother, Bruce Paddock, in his first ever sit down interview about the shooting. He talks about his brother's obsession with guns and money, ISIS, and more about what he believes to be the real motive: REVENGE.
In an incredible, extensive, in studio, Hidden Truth Show interview, we talk to Bruce Paddock, the third of four brothers. He currently faces felony charges for possession of child pornography here in Los Angeles. He agreed to sit down with us and tell his story for the first time. Also, we talk to Catherine Lombardo, attorney for victims suing the Mandalay Bay and MGM, about the highly edited video released this week by MGM of surveillance footage showing Stephen Paddock’s activities leading up to the shooting.

This week Hidden Truth Show interviews Don Bishoff, a longtime columnist for the Eugene Register-Guard who knew and reported on the shooter's father, Benjamin Paddock. In Oregon, the elder Paddock went by the name Bruce Erickson, aka “Bingo Bruce” because of his bingo hall which masqueraded as a charity. He was a conman who would have made Leonardo DiCaprio’s character in Catch Me if You Can proud. His escape from prison landed him on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List. Apparently, he abandoned his four boys and never looked back. One of them would go on to kill 58 people. Jeffery Simon, author of Lone Wolf Terrorism: Understanding the Threat analyzes the shooting and reports that if the shooter truly was a lone wolf it would be the first one he has seen where the killer did not leave behind any indication as to why he did it.

On episode #3 of Hidden Truth: Las Vegas Shooting podcast, Laura Loomer, author of the upcoming book about the shooting, What Happens in Vegas, was in Vegas during the aftermath of the Las Vegas Shooting covering the initial investigation. She reports that a very cozy relationship exists between the police, media, and casinos which she believes resulted in changing timelines and a lack of critical media coverage. She reveals evidence of gun running by the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock. She also explains why ISIS’s claim of responsibility should be taken seriously and is the most likely explanation as to what really happened. Crowd Source the Truth reporter Joe Napoli was at the concert and within feet of many who were shot. He tells a harrowing story of miraculously escaping the venue without being shot. But once outside the venue he saw other shooting victims, and shell casings! Napoli provides compelling evidence of a potential second shooter.
On episode #2 of Hidden Truth: Las Vegas Shooting podcast, Tim Bedwell just announced he is running against the current Sheriff in charge of the shooting investigation. He spent 20 years in the Marine Corp and another 22 years in law enforcement. He calls out the Sheriff for botching the timeline of the Las Vegas Shooting and first implying that it was the police who killed the shooter. He also states that poor police tactics the night of the shooting could have resulted in far more casualties. And, he points out two obvious things the Mandalay Bay should have done that could have prevented the shooting.
On episode #1 of Hidden Truth: Las Vegas Shooting podcast, we go through the police report and timeline of the Las Vegas Shooting and raise the many still unanswered questions to the largest mass shooting in American history. How could we still not know why he did it? Is there any truth to the many alternative theories floating around? We have a stunning interview with an attorney who represents over 40 victims who also happened to be at the concert. He is convinced that Paddock was not the only shooter!
