When the X-Files debuted in 1993 no one could have predicted it would become one of the defining TV shows of the decade. 

The show about a couple of FBI agents investigating aliens and other supernatural creatures was nothing like the other one-hour TV shows that were on the air at the time. 

But within a couple of years the show became a phenomenon that kick started internet fandom and influenced the TV landscape for years to come. 

On this episode of History of the 90s host Kathy Kenzora is looking back at the creation and growth of The X-Files and the legacy that continues to this day.

What a Creep: Joey Buttafuoco & John Wayne Bobbitt (90s Creeps)
What a Creep: Joey Buttafuoco & John Wayne Bobbitt Season 10, Episode 1 90s Tabloid Creeps Joey Buttafuoco The name alone became a punchline—Buttafuoco! In the summer of 1992, America was obsessed with this trashy tale from Long Island about a murderous teenager and her dumb, muscle pants-wearing lover. This scandal had everything, sex, escort services, autobody shops, a Howard Stern interview, and secret videotapes which the tabloid media covered breathlessly for over a year. Trigger Warnings: Sexual assault, grooming and gun violence Sources: Wikipedia Joey Buttafuoco Wikipedia Mary Jo Buttafuoco Wikipedia Amy Fisher Eftimiades, Maria (1992). Lethal Lolita: A True Story of Sex, Scandal and Deadly Obsession. St. Martin's Press. ISBN 0-312-95062-4. REELZ: "Scandal Made Me Famous" Rolling Stone John Wayne Bobbitt In 1993, the John Wayne and Lorena Bobbitt scandal was a tabloid dream come true. After suffering years of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, Lorena cut off John’s penis. It was a sensational story, but what we missed in all the coverage was the fact that John Wayne Bobbitt was an abusive prick.

Clicker Training: Will it Work for Every Dog?
Visit us at shapedbydog.com How do you decide when to use a clicker and what to use it for in dog training? That’s a question recently asked on my Instagram and what we’re covering in this episode. Is a clicker a good choice for your dog, or you as a trainer, or for the behavior you want to train? In the episode you'll hear: • About using clickers, markers and what conditioned reinforcers are. • The four things you can do when using reinforcement in your training. • The verbal markers I like to use and why I changed from “yes” to a short “good”. • Why we use a clicker and how it can reduce stress. • About the clicker's precision and how a precise tool helps our training. • Why a clicker is like a laser for training to isolate exact moments for your dog. • About knowing what your dog thinks you clicked, not what you think you clicked. • What I learned about getting what I click in the nineties when training a go out. • When I use a clicker. • The reasons to use reward throwing or food chucking in dog training. • What to do if you are luring to fade the lure as soon as you can. • How I inadvertently trained by dog Buzz to stop at the first weave pole. • The difference between gross behaviors, behaviors of motion, and precise moments in time. • Easy games to help improve your timing and skills with a clicker.
