Season 1

Trojan Hearse


Alphabet Boys
Season 1

Alphabet Boys reveals the secret investigations of the FBI, CIA, DEA, ATF, and other alphabet agencies.

Hosted by journalist Trevor Aaronson, this podcast exposes secret undercover recordings that the government never wanted you to hear, along with the entrapment schemes federal agents set up to target unsuspecting Americans. We explore cases that are both dangerous and absurd while asking this question: Are America’s top cops catching criminals — or creating them?

Season one is “Trojan Hearse.” 

During the rage-filled summer of 2020, a mysterious, cigar-smoking antifa warrior rolls into town. He wears military fatigues, speaks with a raspy voice, and drives a hearse filled with guns. He also keeps a very big secret. 

Alphabet Boys is a production of Western Sound and iHeartPodcasts.

Trojan Hearse Trailer

In the summer of 2020, there were rumors that government agents had infiltrated the racial justice movement. And you know what? They were right. Listen on February 7.

1. Summer of Rage

Denver sees some of the most intense protests. Amid the clashes, a new guy rolls into town. He’s got a cigar dangling from his lips and he’s driving a silver hearse filled with guns.

2. All the Way Uptown

Activist Zebb Hall is enthralled with Mickey’s message — that the fight against racism needs to escalate. “If that’s what you want,” Mickey tells Zebb, “I can make it happen.”

3.Black Identity Extremism

Today, the FBI has more than 15,000 registered informants, and in the summer of 2020, Mickey is one of them. His official motivation? “To fight terrorists.” The FBI thinks the same way.

4. The Punisher

Mickey is obsessed with The Punisher, the Marvel Comics antihero who delivers his own brand of arbitrary, violent justice. In this episode, we talk to Casandra Windecker, Mickey’s ex-wife.

5. Give ‘Em Hell

Alongside a couple of activists, Mickey infiltrates the Denver protest scene and he also starts spreading rumors that a leader of the demonstrations is a snitch.

6. Dumpster Fire

Mickey now has two targets: Zebb Hall and Bryce Shelby. Mickey takes them to lunch and tells them both that he’s got a guy who can help them do something big.

7. They Call Me Juice

Mickey’s so-called “outlaw biker buddy.” Red takes activist Bryce Shelby for a drive to scope out the home of Colorado’s attorney general as part of a budding assassination plot.

8. The Springs

The FBI’s investigation into activists spreads beyond Denver. In Colorado Springs, a provocatively dressed woman with pink hair shows up to volunteer at a left-wing nonprofit organization.
