About the host


Hey there Rainbow Warriors, it's C.J.!  Thanks for dropping by to visit! I identify as a lesbian if I have to label my orientation. I've been a fan of true crime stories for a long time, but have only discovered True Crime Podcasts within the last two years thanks to my friend and Creative Consultant Allison McKimmy-Trestor who by the way is heterosexual but very supportive of the LGBTQI community.  I have a beautiful 21 year old daughter and an array of fur babies.  I worked with children for over half my life and loved it but gratefully retired early to start a new journey in life, which has included podcasting.  Beyond podcasting my interests include crafting, cooking, music, Netflix, hiking, walking my dog, bike riding, playing sports and board games. This is starting to sound like an ad for a dating site....I like long walks on the beach, sunsets and dancing in the rain! Ha!

I'm now on the GetVokl app! GetVokl is a free app where every Thursday you can watch one of your favorite true crime podcasts! Beyond the Rainbow airs every Thursday at 6pm pacific time, 8pm central and 9 pm eastern. You can pop in and watch, listen and even interact with me by grabbing an empty space. Did the first one Thursday, May 7th and there were only 5 of us, which was fine because I had some technical difficulties on my end. But with the few of us that were there it was fun to talk with a few of the listeners, find out where they were from and just shoot the shit! I'm hoping we can build the amount of viewers each week however. If you are reading this, please stop in and chat! That's Thursdays on GetVokl!

Hey C.J.!

What's your favorite childhood memory?

I had an excellent childhood with many great memories. I would have to say one of my favorite memories would be going outside on our front lawn at night with my mom, dad, brother and sister. My mom would lay out a big blanket and have a bag of various candy bars and we all got to choose one. Then we'd lay on the blanket and look up at the stars while enjoying our candy.  I also had a little banty chicken named Aper.  She was so tame, she would ride around in the basket of my bike. She is who inspired my love of chickens!
