Movies & characters based on Ed Gein
Starting a new series for the quarantine in which I examine famous killers I’ve covered & how they’ve entered mainstream culture.
The first episode looks at the many movies & characters which were based on Ed Gein including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho and The Silence of the Lambs.
Episode 58: HAROLD SHIPMAN - DR. DEATH
Shipman is one of the most prolific killers in history with an estimated 250 deaths, all of which, were his patients. Harold would see an elderly patient, inject them with a fatal dose of morphine, then fake the medical records to make it seem like the patient had died of a natural cause. Shipman is a fascinating story as his background, murder methods, and motivation seem widely different than any other serial killer covered in the past.
Episode 57: BOBBY JOE LONG - THE CLASSIFIED AD RAPIST
As his name suggested, Bobby used ads in local papers to find vulnerable victims. Long would scan the classifieds to find furniture or appliances for sale, then go to the homes to check out the goods.
He figured that the person selling the item would likely be a wife home who was home alone or a single woman. Sadly, he was often correct and would easily gain access to a victim who was by herself.

Fascinating and well researched
I’ve been binge listening to this podcast since coming across it about a month ago. Its well researched and indepth giving a fascinating insight into serial killers’ crimes, their history and possible motivations. It’s a very informative and interesting podcast that I enjoy listening to during night shifts and while travelling. Thanks for the illuminating podcasts 👍
Episode on Varg
Factually wrong and presented terribly, can tell no effort went into this episode & it’s wrong to paint people as what you want them to be instead of what they are.
Good podcast poor sound quality
Well researched but let down a bit by sound quality
