    E37: The First Cassisus Clay, Scandalous Politician and Abolitionist - Part 2

    The Scandal Sheets ladies finish the story of Cassius Marcellus Clay, a 19th century Kentucky politician turned firebrand abolitionist. There are plenty more shenanigans including political brawls, inappropriate marriages, and even...gasp...a possibly love child. Along the way, Clay rebuilds the family manse, transforming it into something a little hard to explain. ===============================================================

    E36: The First Cassius Clay, Scandalous Politician and Abolitionist

    E36: The First Cassius Clay, Scandalous Politician and Abolitionist

    Most everyone knows the name Cassius Clay--it was the birth name of the late, great Muhammad Ali. But he was named after Cassius Marcellus Clay, a 19th century Kentucky politician turned firebrand abolitionist. Born on a wealthy plantation, Clay was inspired by his time at Princeton, where he saw William Lloyd Garrison speak, he would agitate for abolition beginning in the 1830s. But he was a bit of a hellraiser in his personal life, fighting many duels, inciting brawls, and even taking a bullet. Oh and having a mysterious affair with a Russian ballet dancer....and marrying a woman 60 years younger than himself. Join Caroline and Adrienne for all the fun as they explore the many scandals of Cassius Marcellus Clay. ===============================================================

    E35: The Scandalous Doctor to the Dead: Carl Tanzler von Casel

    E35: The Scandalous Doctor to the Dead: Carl Tanzler von Casel

    Carl Tanzler was a German born man of mystery who little is known about except for two things: he had a spectacular imagination and a VERY obsessive nature. In the early 1930s he took a shine to a beautiful, but terminally ill patient at the Marine Hospital in Key West, Florida. It could have been like a Nicholas Sparks book with pledges of love and hasty marriages, but it ended up more like an episode of "Tales from the Crypt". Join Caroline and Adrienne as they dive into the deep and murky waters of an obsession that went well beyond the grave. Spoiler alert: you will not want to eat your Thanksgiving turkey while listening.

    E34: Scandal in Death, The Story of the Reclusive Heiress Hugette Clark

    After detailing her origins, we're finishing the life of Hugette Clark, the reclusive heiress who died with $300 million in the bank. That's a lot of dough. Despite a scandalous short lived marriage, Hugette managed to stay out of the limelight for over 80 years. It wasn't until her death at 105 that the world came to know her name and the contents of her scandalous will.
