    183. Homicidal Tantrum - The ESL Mass Shooting

    In 1984, Richard Farley met new co-worker Laura Black at the Sunnyvale, California office of their employer ESL. He was instantly attracted to Laura and asked her out on numerous occasions but she politely refused his advances. Unwilling to take no for an answer, Farley proceeded to stalk Laura relentlessly.


    After four years of Farley's constant harassment, Laura saw no option but to take out a temporary restraining order against him. A court date was set for February 17th, 1988 to make the order permanent. On February 16th, Richard Farley went on a shooting spree at ESL, murdering seven people and wounding four others.

    177. The Dead Wives of a Lubricant Tycoon

    After 34 year old beauty therapist and mother of two, Novy Chardon went missing from her Gold Coast home in February 2013, her husband John wasn't even slightly concerned. He made sexual advances to her friends who came looking for her and didn't bother reporting his fifth wife's disappearance to the police. The day she vanished, Novy's divorce lawyer had sent John an email saying she wanted half his assets in the settlement. Interestingly enough, this is almost exactly what had happened before Chardon's first wife Maureen died of a suspicious overdose 17 years earlier.

Turns out one can find true crime AND dark humor all in one place! This duo liberally sprinkles comically timed lady-swears and deep dive research throughout the story.

Distracting

Hosts are somewhat likable but the profanity and crudeness are so frequent, I can’t focus on the subject. Tone it down.
