    Ep 28 - Florida's Infamous Murderess; Aileen Wuornos part II

    In this weeks episode, Charlie and Shelby close the book on Aileen Wuornos while discussing the murders for which she was arrested and charged. After a slew of slayings, Wuornos finally got nabbed by investigators and would incessantly change her story, often backtracking when slipping up in an effort to retell the story to better fit the false narrative she was creating. After being demolished during her trial, Wuornos would be handed a sentence that few people before her had ever received.

    Ep 24 - Murderous French FuqBoi; Gilles De Rais

    Ep 24 - Murderous French FuqBoi; Gilles De Rais

    In this weeks episode, Charlie and Shelby take a trip to medieval France with the story of a grisly murderer by the name of Gilles de Rais. Gilles gained an admirable amount of accolades in his life and even fought alongside Joan of Arc, yes, THE Joan of Arc. He'd accumulate a good amount of wealth which he would use in various ways, eventually squandering it. Then the grisly details come into play because it would be found out the Gilles was responsible for the deaths of an estimated hundreds of children, which we would be tried and sentenced to death for. This episode, while interesting, is not for everyone. Listen at your own risk.
