The Ladies of Strange
Episode 50: Not Long Island Iced Tea
Hello, Lovelies! Have you heard about the Craigslist Ripper? The Giglo Beach Serial Killer? What about the Long Island Serial Killer? These might be three different people, or one crazy, sadistic person. Either way, Tiffany is telling us all about it this week. When Shannon Gilbert goes missing in 2010 after an erratic episode, the search for her opens a can of worms no one was expecting. As bodies of sex workers were being found along various roads and marshes in Long Island, New York knew they had an issue on their hands. As more is uncovered, not only are there multiple suspects but there are multiple victims that span almost the length of 20 years. Join us this week as Tiffany tells us about this wild tale as Ashley and Rebecca pay rapt attention to the craziness.
As a special surprise this week, Tiffany has asked her friend Leah to tell us about what we can do to help this group of people who are statistically more likely to come in harms way. (like, 18% more likely. We discuss this during the episode.) More can be found about the organization Leah works with in this week's blog post on our website.
This week's drink break is brought to you by An Hour of our Time Podcast! This podcast chooses a new topic each episode. Topics range from sociopolitical, to scientific, to historical, trying to maintain variety. The hosts (Joe Wallace, Dave Buker, and Mark Cracraft) then each perform an hour of research followed by a marginally focused one hour discussion. An Hour Of Our Time is fun for anyone who enjoys funny but sometimes frustrating tangents of referential conversation. Check out this week's blog post to find links to listen to them and find Tiffany's show notes: https://wp.me/paqGnY-cJ
