    New York: Robert Shulman

    This week we talk about how Robert Shulman killed and dismembered multiple sex workers in his filthy hoarder bedroom, then scattered their body parts throughout the city. Detectives initially put little effort into solving these murders, until the victim’s family members & other sex workers started putting pressure on the police.

Love these women

I love how insightful the girls are. As a psychologist in training I love how they analyse the behaviours of the criminals

Bee_Miss ,

Refreshing

I really rate this podcast. I used to listen to another, similar podcast that shall remain nameless and was put off by the lack of care given to the story. These women cannot be accused of this. So well researched and the stories are delivered in a way that is my jam. Note to those looking for a podcast, if you think true crime and comedy don’t belong together, pass this podcast by. You’ll get mad. No one wants that.

Sokeripie ,

Wanted to like this podcast...

...but I just can't listen to it. The chatter and jokes make it so hard to follow the actual story.
