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.

Sarah goes over the last 24 hours of a death row inmate, discusses some quippy last words, and details a few choice last meals. What would you pick?

Welcome back! Episode 40 means that it’s time for another theme. This week, we chose nurses who kill and it is a doozy.

Caity brings us the story of Jolly Jane Toppan, a nurse who really hated old people. Sandy tells a tale from right here in San Antonio. Genene Jones was a nurse who preyed on the young and killed or injured at least 47 children. Sandy will be taking a small break from the pod, so tune in next week to hear Sarah tell a story!
