Episode 5 – The Cleveland Torso Murders

I think we started drinking a little early on this one. It took us about 16 minutes to start talking about the case as a few of our guests needed to voice their displeasure on the cocktail. We talk about a little of everything in this one, so I hope you enjoy it. Fair warning, this is more explicit than previous episodes language-wise.
