    EP 91 - Girl has no Chill

    Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! We are back to our regular format this week with two stories. Mack starts us off with an old but still very tragic slew of arsenic murders all committed by the one and only Bertha Giffords, dubbed America's first female serial killer. Liv brings us something light-hearted and discusses the origins of Ursula Shipton, aka Mother Shipton, her notorious prophecies and possible proof of her existence.
    This episode contains foul language, discussions about murder (including child murder), witches and some lore. We’ll do our best to stay on track, but the bottles are popped!

    Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! Hope you guys are ready to buckle up because Mack has brought a detailed dive into the Happy Face killer, aka Keith Hunter Jesperson. She briefly covers his childhood and then gives us an incredibly detailed story surrounding his crimes as a serial killer. Major content warning up front for this one, it’s pretty gruesome, but don’t worry she gives you enough time to skip if you choose.

    This episode contains foul language, animal abuse, rape, murder, torture, and really graphic descriptions of body mutilation. We’ll do our best to stay on track, but the bottles are popped!

    Victims of Injustice: Black Lives Matter

    As podcasters, we have a platform and duty to speak up and call out injustice. In light of the murder of George Floyd, we have come together in solidarity to use our platform to speak up against racial injustice and amplify the voices of black podcasters that deserve more recognition. Racism is prevalent in all industries; from the media who under-report on black victims to the justice system which routinely fails black victims. In this collaborative episode, we document black history and current events with the voices of those who have lived through it.
