Episode 3: Scare at Middletown High School North, Freehold Bomb Arrest, Village 35, Maggots at WaWa and More!

By | Podcast | No Comments

A scary week in Monmouth County. We delve into the big story breaking at Middletown North High School – as a student posts a snapchat showcasing 38 bullets – suggesting that 38 students will be on the receiving end of them. Police have since investigated and searched the student’s house and have deemed the threat not credible. The student in the meantime has been charged with making terroristic threats and has been suspended.

Hasbrouck Heights superintendent forced to resign after New Jersey finds out that she transferred her daughter – also a district employee to a different office. In a bizarre turn of events, the superintendent covered the security cameras at the new location so no one would see her daughter working at the new location. ┬áNot sure if she thought this was a temporary solution or if the cameras were going to covered indefinitely? Very strange.

New Jersey man claims to have found maggots inside his hoagie at Wawa! Check out the video footage on YouTube and decide for yourself. My guess is the maggots were living in the orange sauce, considering the meats would be too hot for the maggots to live and thrive. Pretty gross and I’m sure there will be a nice lawsuit to follow.

Freehold New Jersey biker found with pipes, bomb making materials and books on how to build bombs after housemate informs police of his findings. Man will be held without bail awaiting trial and has been charged with possession of explosives, firearm silencers and body-piercing ammunition.

In lighter news, the folks at Stop Village 35 will be somewhat relieved that the Village 35 project has been put on the shelf until 2018 – so we at Route 36 Podcast will be keeping our eyes open for new developments and will be sure to bring you the latest.


Episode 2: Hazlet & Middletown Day, Porn bust in Monmouth County and Middletown NJ’s new trash deal is garbage!

By | Podcast | No Comments

In this episode we discuss some fun options around town for the weekend as well as some of the major news occurring around town. We check out JUS – an organic fruit bowl and smoothie shop as well as Atlantic Highlands’ Hudson Cafe – voted best pancakes in Monmouth County! We also spend some time in Union Beach getting some ice cream and having some fun at the Fireman’s playground.

In the news we discuss the gigantic child porn bust in Monmouth County – as police haul away 13 pedos, getting them off the street for P2P file sharing of naughty images. Two kids shoot paintballs at Holmdel police and two cars are stolen straight off of someone’s driveway!

In lighter news, Middletown day is Saturday, September 23rd at Croydon Hall from 11:30AM to 5PM – hope to see you there!

Finally, we get into the dirty trash deal that Middletown has signed without giving residents any notice! Many residents are upset that they will now be paying for services they may or may not need. Naturally, the township has a different view – and we discuss both in this transmission.
