    Introducing Allison's New Podcast: Vintage Villains -- Episode 1 Belle Gunness

    Introducing Allison's New Podcast: Vintage Villains -- Episode 1 Belle Gunness

    That's right, Ding Dongs. The Queen is starting a SECOND podcast. It's specifically geared toward historical true crime (cases prior to 1980, and going back as far as human history itself).

    After a brief introduction, Allison will plunge you right into 1908 and the world of infamous Midwest female serial killer, Belle Gunness, who was reeling in and extinguishing scores of lonely hearts on her Indiana farm for a good few years before the whole operation went up in flames. Literally.

    44: It's Time to Talk About 'Gone Girl'

    The topic of Gone Girl was an inevitable for this show. The 2012 bestselling phenomenon by Gillian Flynn blew millions of readers away with its stunning plot twist, but it also caused one of the biggest plot twists in Allison's own life.

    This episode, featuring Jayson Blair of the Silver Linings Handbook, explores the dark and faceted marriage of Nick and Amy Dunne, and they discuss the way so many of its themes resonate in real human psychology and relationships.

    Listen to Jayson Blair's show, The Silver Linings Handbook Podcast:
