    Episode #14: The Co-Ed Killer, Ed Kemper Part 2; The Devil's Playground

    Episode #14: The Co-Ed Killer, Ed Kemper Part 2; The Devil's Playground

    Trigger Warnings this episode: Necrophilia at 9:50, Description of Injury and Necrophilia at 27:32, and Cannibalism at 45:38.



    Alana wasn't messing around when we said High Profile! Meet Ed Kemper, one of the first cases of criminal psychology! Ed Kemper was a monster through and through, claiming 10 lives, including members of his own family. On top of the high kill count, Kemper committed unspeakable acts upon his victims, all while hiding in plain sight. It's a rough one, but an important one, if anything just to make fun of Big Ed... In this episode we cover Kemper's final 4 victims, his arrest, and the legacy his crimes left behind. A bittersweet end to a terrible tale.

Sweetvegan ,

Highly Recommend!

A fun and well thought out podcast. The Bermuda Triangle episode was both chilling and intriguing. And the Tailypo episode was super fun. Highly recommend this podcast to listen while you drink your favorite tea or morning coffee.

My Favorite Spooky Podcast!

I love Spookery. It’s fun to get a different topic every week. Getting to explore cases I wouldn’t have ever thought to look up myself is so great!
