It happens every few episodes. Just when Christopher and Eric announce that their True Crime TV Club has served up the most disturbing crime imaginable, they somehow manage to top it, this time with the breathtakingly diabolical deeds of British serial killer couple Fred and Rosemary West. (MURDERERS AND THEIR MOTHERS. Season 1, Ep. 2) There’s evil, and then there’s Fred and Rosemary West evil. How much are their parents to blame for their diabolical deeds? More importantly, how much of their story can Christopher and Eric get through without screaming into their mics or putting their fingers in their ears and humming a happy tune? This edition of Christopher & Eric’s True Crime TV Club really puts your jaded mystery writing, true crime solving hosts to the test. Thankfully, they survive, and so will you.
(If this episode sounds different from our others, that’s because it was recorded remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to be back in our usual studio space as soon as public health advisories allow.)
