Episode 44: Killer nurse Charlie Cullen, 16 years, nine hospitals, hundreds of deaths

From 1987 to 2003 nurse Charlie Cullen worked at nine hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He wasn’t particularly smart or sneaky, he wasn’t a master criminal. But he killed and killed and killed. And every time a hospital became suspicious and let him go, he’d go down the road to another one, get a  job and kill some more.

Estimates are he may have killed as many as 400 people before he was finally stopped.

Join us in our discussion of the man who may be the most  prolific serial killer in the U.S.

Episode 34: Son of Sam, the terror of New York City

In the summer of 1977, New York City was terrorized by a killer who shot his victims at close range, eventually killing six people and wounding seven. He was eventually called the Son of Sam.

While not history’s most prolific killer — or even 1977’s — his brazen attacks, which police determined began in July 1976, made national deadlines.

David Berkowitz’s arrest in August 1977 in many ways raised more questions than they answered.

Join us for Episode 34, where we discuss Son of Sam, 1977 TV and even have a pop-up recipe.
