Ep. 187 – Christopher & Eric’s True Crime TV Club Serves Up “The Real ‘Natural Born Killer’, Charles Starkweather” (Born To Kill)

July 8, 2023

Midwest Mayhem departs the big and dirty city and heads to the bleak countryside for its second true crime pairing, the disturbing story of Charles Starkweather and Carol Fugate, two young killers whose gruesome crimes shocked a nation and inspired numerous film versions in the years that followed. In THE REAL ‘NATURAL BORN KILLER’, CHARLES STARKWEATHER (BORN TO KILL), available to stream on the Our Life You Tube Channel, we’re given a by the numbers retelling of a horrifying killing spree that crossed the great plains of the Midwest. But Eric hears a story the producers aren’t telling, the tale of a young woman who used as her weapon of choice, not just a gun, but a man desperate for her love and approval to exact her adolescent fantasies of revenge. We will complete our true crime pairing on our next episode when your hosts serve up a 1970’s art house director’s dramatic interpretation of these very crimes — Terence Malick’s BADLANDS.
