Friday Nov 15, 2019

This episode was absolute chaos to upload. But, technical difficulties aside, it's probably one of my favorite episodes to date. Let's talk about Freddie and Truus Oversteegen, sisters who were the youngest members of the underground Haarlem Council of Resistance during World War II. Their missions? Seduce and murder Nazi commanders, sabotage railways, and free Jewish people from concentration camps. All while they were 14 and 16 years old.

 This week we’re going in to the realm of demonology, and talking about the creature known as a succubus. Our murderess of the day is Gucci. Alright, that’s a bad joke, but her name is Patrizia Reggiani, and she’s also known as Lady Gucci, because the man she had murdered was her husband who was the heir to the Gucci fashion label! 
Yeah, this is going to be a good one.

Today we have two very  interesting ladies who I’ve been wanting to cover for a while now. Our murderess of the day is known as the Female Dracula, none other than the Countess Elizabeth Bathory. Our mythology is a woman who’s considered to be just as bloody, the legend of Bloody Mary. Yes, I did pair them up for the sake of that pun. Let me have my fun!

This episode’s theme is brought to us by the tale of Baba Yaga. And, imagine my surprise, when I found out that there is actually a Russian serial killer who is nicknamed Baba Yaga! And she was 68 years old when she was arrested in 2015, which makes her close to 72 now. Also known as The Granny Killer, her real name is Tamara Samsonova, and her story is one that is also full of mysteries. For example, did she really cannibalize parts of her victims?

This time, we’re making our way up north, to Canada, where the name Evelyn Dick has quickly fallen into local legend. A trial that resulted in a conviction, an appeal, and then a verdict of not guilty that took the entire world by storm. Let's talk about it.

This week we are covering the story of Catalina de Erauso, also known as the Lieutenant Nun, and how her magical virginity saved her from being prosecuted for two decades of murder. That’s right, you heard me. And for this episode, we get to hear the story from Catalina herself, via her memoir.

Julie d’Aubigny, also known as La Maupin and Mdsll Maupin, was a 17th century celebrity. She was bisexual, and a whirlwind of fencing, seduction, and arsony. I want a movie about her LIFE immediately. There are a few in French, but most of America doesn’t seem to know about her and that is ridiculous to me. So we’re changing that, as of right now.
