S15 Bonus – The Worst Monsters: Features of True Crime

Happy Halloween everyone! We’ve been talking monsters and fantastical creatures for the entire month of October, progressively getting darker and scarier. Hosts Ley and Leigh were in agreement, though, that the worst of all monsters are humans. For centuries, stories have included men and women who have committed far more attrocities than any mindless undead creature.

We start the episode by diving into the mythological human creatures, such as werewolves, then explore the dark world of serial killers. Listen to hear some unusual cases as well as a brief exploration of what science knows of serial killer psychology.

First aired October 31, 2020.

A special thank you goes to Leigh’s sister, Brianna Joy for her contributions to this episode. An interest in true crime must run in the family.
