50. Granny, Kennedy, and Almost Cold Cases

June 27, 2019

Things we learned in episode 50:

  • Amanda Bynes never cared about you.
  • If you’re going to cheat, be smart… or be a Kennedy.
  • None of us actually remember the Fresh Prince theme song.
  • Lonely hearts columns were the only way to find love and/or magicians before Tinder.

This week we celebrate 50 episodes with stories that relate to 50. Sarah kicks it off with the story of Ted Kennedy and the Chappaquiddick incident. Sandy returns to us with the recently solved murder of Jane Britton. Caity ends our episode with Nannie Doss, the giggling granny who loved Lonely Hearts columns almost as much as she loved murder.

Everyone needs a good skincare routine but please don’t take advice from the woman in Sarah’s story. The blood of children is not a good moisturizer. Though we are curious about how Elizabeth Bathory’s skin felt at the end of her life. Sarah also tells us about a weird troll movie and if Caity had to hear about it, so do you. Caity continues this “Crimes that Inspired Movies” themed episode with the events that inspired The Changeling: the disappearance of Walter Collins and the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders.
