Historical True Crime Podcast: The Infamous Women of History

    Lover, Stalker, Killer | A Deadly Love Triangle

    Lover, Stalker, Killer | A Deadly Love Triangle

    Hello, and welcome to A Murderess Affair. My name is Gabrielle and this is the podcast where I talk about women in history known for mayhem and murder. This week I was inspired by the Netflix documentary Lover, Stalker, Killer and immediately fell down the rabbit hole of this case. If you know this story, then you know who our woman of the week is, but for those of you guys who don’t-the best way I can retell this is following a similar format along what they did with Lover Stalker Killer because the reality of this actually happening is actually stranger than fiction

    Manuela Sáenz | The Liberator of Liberators

    Manuela Sáenz | The Liberator of Liberators

    Today we're talking about Manuela Sáenz, a political activist who helped to lead Simón Bolivar's vision of a Gran Columbia. She was notable for stopping multiple assassination attempts against him, becoming a spymaster of information, and also carrying a mustache around of her dead enemy?

    Gypsy Rose Blanchard

    Gypsy Rose Blanchard

    Alright everyone, we're talking about Gypsy Rose Blanchard today. I know, she's been dominating news cycles since she was released, but I couldn't not talk about her! Also I'm sorry about the terrible audio quality in the beginning, literally took me forever to get it to be semi-worth listening. If it's too much skip to like around 3 mins and it should get better from there!

    EDIT: 2/6/24 OH MY GOD THE STUPID AUDIO FILE DIDN'T UPLOAD i am screaming. here is the audio. i apologize everyone.

    Chandler House of Horrors: April McLaughlin Animal Hoarding

    This past Friday was also National Haunted House day, which worked out perfectly as it also inspired our latest episode. Now, this is one that is actually local to where I am in Arizona, and I heard about it from a friend and knew immediately that this is something I needed to talk about. So, guys, gals, and nonbinary pals, let’s talk about the Chandler, AZ House of Horrors, aka April McLaughlin

    LIVE from Scaredycon! Women in Horror and the Real Life Stories Behind Them!

    The first! Ever! Live! Episode! 
    Thank you so much to everyone who came out and made Scaredycon so much fun to be at, a million thanks to Taproom-120 for hosting, ScaredyCast and everyone else for putting this together. I had a great time being part of it and 100000% can't wait for the next one. 
    In this episode we talk about women from horror movies who's stories were inspired by real life events. First off is the movie The Orphan, and her real life counterpart Barbara Skrlova  (have you guys heard about this one? A lot of people know it’s based on a real story but don’t know the story itself so I thought this would be an interesting one to do.)
    Then, leaning into the more spooky things, we’ve got Veronica a 2017 supernatural horror film loosely based on the 1991 Vallecas case when Estafania Gutierrez Lazaro mysteriously died after using a ouija board. 
    Let's get spooky.

😊

I love this show. Do you take murderess recommendations? If so, I’d like to see Giulia Tofana, La Voisin, Queen Anula of Anuradhapura, and Mariam Soulakiotis. Thanks for making an engaging, fascinating, fun show!

Well Done

This podcast is great! The episodes aren’t long. The host delivers interesting facts without drawing out mundane details. My only complaint is the intro music. I don’t know why but it drives me crazy. However, that doesn’t take away from the overall quality of the podcast and I give it five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
