010 Double Trouble

Have you ever heard the Bauhaus song Terror Couple Kills Colonel? I recently spent the three days earwormed with it after Netflix bingeing a British television series called "Killer Couples". This got me thinking: True Crime media is pretty obsessed with "Partners in crime" but what factors create these infamous poisonous pairs? This episode discusses a relevant turning point in social science and a specific flavor of the "Partner in Crime".  Thank Yous and Announcements I’d like to thank my most recent Patreon patrons: Mike at The Pleasing Terrors Podcast, one of my favorite podcasts, AND one of my favorite Cheerleaders of the Podcast world Albert, who chose not to have a link but has ALSO helped me with A LOT of the artwork for the podcast. I have added a brand spanking new pledge level on Patreon which gets you stickers! I’d also like to thank my newest five star Itunes reviewer: GoodPony and the lovely people of Podcasts We Listen To on Facebook for helping to get the word out there New Project!
