Old Timey Crimey #41: Gilles de Rais - “The Tommy Wiseau of Evil”

December 27, 2019

This week, we delve into what may be history's first recorded serial killer, Gilles de Rais. This man fights alongside Joan of Arc and also murders many, many children--maybe? He definitely takes his financial advice from sorcerers, as we all should. 

Plus! A demon familiar/Nigerian prince, choreographed executions, and our favorite witch hunter returns!

Old Timey Crimey #39: The Sea and Poison - “No, no, no, no, no”

December 13, 2019

This week, Scott tells Kristy about some war crimes we never learn about in school--a B29 Super Fortress takes off from Guam just a few months before the end of World War II, and horrors ensue. 

It gets pretty intense, Slothy gets an angry hug, and can we just talk about Kristy's party-loving ghost instead maybe?
