What a Creep Season 5, Episode 6: Chris Matthews

Sonia talks about Chris Matthews. Known for his news show “Hardball” and in-depth knowledge of politics and loud, interrupting interview style, Chris Matthews quit his show in March after a series of inappropriate comments about Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and inappropriate comments to female guests on his show. He’s a real creep.

Then Margo talks about a news anchor who is NOT a Creep.

What a Creep Season 5, Episode 5: Rev. Jim Jones and the Jonestown Massacre

Margo leads the discussion this week talking about a cult Creep–the Reverend Jim Jones who caused the deaths of over 900 people in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978. Jim began his career as a pastor from Indiana who believed in social justice. He eventually morphed into a despot who caused the ruin of countless lives and is the origin story for the expression “drank the Kool-Aid.” 

Then Sonia talks about a person related to the Jonestown event who is NOT a Creep.

What a Creep Season 5, Episode 4: The Houston Astros

Here’s the pitch: In the 2017 season, the Houston Astros used TV cameras to steal signs from opposing team’s catchers, and communicate the signs to their hitters in real-time by banging on a trash can. It sounds kinda stupid, but it’s a big deal. The Houston Astros won the World Series in 2017, due in no small part to their cheating.

What a Creep Season 4, Episode 9: Gary Glitter

If you don’t know the name Gary Glitter, you’ve definitely heard his songs. His most popular songs are “Rock and Roll (Parts 1 and 2),” and they are used at sporting events and featured in movies all the time. It was most recently featured in the staircase dancing scene in “Joker.”

He was a glam rock singer (think glittery, sequined suits, make-up, platform boots like David Bowie, Roxy Music, New York Dolls), and has sold more than 20 million records, had 26 hit singles; 12 reaching the Top 10, with three #1 hits. 

He’s also been arrested multiple times for child pornography and child sexual abuse. He’s a serious creep.

This week’s Creep has the distinction of running the most expensive Ponzi scheme of all time. His name is Bernie Madoff and he ripped off thousands of people to the tune of over $65 billion and has shown little remorse. Margo tells the story this week and then Sonia talks about a billion who is (most likely) not a Creep. Enjoy!

What a Creep Season 4, Episode 7: Max Landis

If Max Landis’s name sounds familiar it’s because his father is John Landis, and he is best known for directing films like “Animal House,” “An American Werewolf in London,” “Blues Brothers,” and “Coming to America.”

Max Landis is known for writing a bunch of movies you’ve probably never seen like “Chronicle,” “American Ultra,” and “Bright.” But that’s not why Max Landis is a creep. On top of being the son of a famous director and a middling talent himself, Max Landis is also known as a rapist, gaslighter, body shamer, and a physical and psychological abuser.
