    Karen Conti represented John Wayne Gacy, one of the most notorious American serial killers, on death row and is one of Chicago’s most prominent lawyers and legal analysts. Thirty years after Gacy’s execution, Conti looks back through the eyes of a seasoned professional on the legal and media circus that ensued—and her countless hours of detailed conversation with the killer clown. We hear for the first time about Gacy’s gruesome “Body Book.” Were there more victims? Conspirators involved in the murders? What secrets were buried with him?

Awesome

Love this show great guests, authentic chats and interesting topics - I am addicted to your podcast at the moment 🙌

Normal people talking about death...which should be normal.

This is the conversation humanity needs right now.
Sure, death is a discussion taking place on other podcasts, maybe even on a more esoteric/academic level or debating belief systems like religion vs atheists and even from the 1st person perspectives of someone dying.
But this podcast is about how we as normal humans experience death second hand through watching someone close to you dying, and how we process and deal with all the emotions and everything else that inevitably confronts during those moments.
And although we are all different and will approach this issue differently...there are more similarities in understanding our mortality than not...and it manifests itself in acceptance and love.
