Too Macabre Ladies
Episode 8: Slack-Jawed Yokels
It’s hard to muster up reverence for the court and its officers when they’re slack-jawed yokels, like Kansas’ Thomas-Jefferson-loving Dennis Hawver. And the consequences of a broken criminal justice system weigh heavily in the case of Kalief Browder, a juvenile imprisoned for three years (several in solitary confinement) without trial for a minor property crime that he didn’t commit. Theme: Incompetent Judges, Juries, and Lawyers.
Episode 7: Mercury Retrograde
Is Mercury retrograding responsible for life’s silly little misunderstandings? Conjecture abounds as Porscha and Lisa discuss their favorite ways of imbibing wine and these stories: a gunfight in London, a school field trip gone awry, a racquetball blood shower, something we’re calling “The Lansing Hand Job,” and the fate of the engine-less Gimli Glider. Hold on to your butts! Theme: Silly Misunderstandings.
Episode 6: Limb from Limb
Theatrics abound—for better or worse—as Lisa dissects the ransom letter from the JonBenet Ramsey murder scene. Porscha’s soapbox on the horrific kidnapping of Colleen Stan (The Girl in the Box) probes the patriarchy, the stigma of abuse, and BDSM dynamics. Theme: Ripped from the Headlines.
Episode 5: Grim Mess & Chess
Porscha and Lisa keep slaying (…not bodies) but get serially serious. Profiling the Los Angeles-based Grim Sleeper (and his controversial capture using a familial DNA dragnet) and Russia’s Chessboard Killer. At lighter moments, Porscha discusses her fascination with Doris Payne, and Lisa reveals the childhood catalyst of her macabre interests. Theme: Serial (and Possible Serial) Crimes.
Episode 4: Pseudocide
Has DNA earned its place as the gold standard of forensic evidence? How does a chimera-physician-rapist’s predatory behavior influence the discussion of lethal injection drug cocktails? Lisa ponders Dr. John Schneeberger after her own cocktails, while Porscha is unsympathetic to Joe Gliniewicz’s (crooked cop extraordinaire!) dereliction of duties and boldly staged suicide. Theme: Creative Ways to Disguise Your Suicide.
Episode 3: Boo's Clues
Lisa gets some colorful, ill-advised ink... kinda, "Forensic Files" comes through as always, Florida is still Florida, Porscha's got a thing for Judd Nelson, and (surprise!) men turn out to be a lot less skilled than they think. Featuring the stories of Katie Froeschle and the Billionaire Boys' Club. Theme: Dumb Evidence Left Behind Website: toomacabreladies.com Facebook / Instagram: @toomacabreladies
Episode 2: Tripodcast
Lisa meanders through some unusual feelings about airplanes; Porscha explores a bootlegger's triumphs and woes; and the pair schemes to catch Keith Morrison's attention. (You know, the usual.) Featuring true crime stories of the Belgian parachute murder and Prohibition kingpin George Remus. Theme: Love Triangles.
Episode 1: Mo' Money, Mo' Roblems
Porscha and Lisa dig into the insurance fraud mystery surrounding Franklin "Frankie" Pullian, go 12 Angry Men on the Christopher Porco bloodbath, and discuss a little light disembowelment. You will not learn why Lisa's sister has a machete or the legal progression of the Pullian case, but you will learn the meanings of fishbowel and cat jail and how Porscha and Lisa plan on avoiding matricide in their futures. Theme: They Did It For The Money.
