Episode 21 – Wrongful Convictions

 

Sometimes the courts get things wrong and sometimes they get it absolutely horribly wrong.

Spending 11 years in prison would be awful but even more awful if you were wrongfully convicted of a crime that did not even occur.

Bicycle, Bicycle, Bicycle! I wish I hadn’t ridden my bicycle bicycle, bicycle!

It’s not often that both parties involved in a true crime case are victims but that is what we are talking about today so it’s twice as sad. What a Debbie Downer I am. *Sad Trumpet Sound*.

Beer pairing for this story is Strathcona Beer Co Beach Radler.

Episode 12 – Dismemberment Part 1

 

On episode 12 we get into the dark and dirty subject of Dismemberment.

Tamara Samsonova

Baba Yaga is a famous witch of the East, well-known in Russia.  She has spooked and scared little children across Eastern Europe for many centuries.  The name of Baba Yaga is composed of two elements.  Baba means “grandmother” or “old woman” in most Slavic languages.  The other names she received was Granny Ripper and my personal favorite nickname “Grannyball Lecter”.  The killer of this story is Russia’s Tamara Samsonova.

This story was paired with Strange Fellows Brewing’s Boris Russian Imperial Stout.
