Good episode? Give it some love!
*Disclaimer- this episode is a heavy one, and involves the abuse and murder of a child by adults and other children, so feel free to skip it if you have an intact moral compass.*Join us as we discuss the Caretaker of the Year back in 1965: Gertrude Baniszewski. She is most famous for the abuse, torture, and murder of 16 year old Sylvia Likens, but that’s not all there is to fangirl over about this terrible woman. Ms. Baniszewski was quite the catch romantically speaking, with her pill-popping zombie-eyed stare and smoker’s cough. Did I mention that she started a profitable business down in her basement by simply persuading impressionable youths into torturing a classmate yet? I didn’t? Well, you’ll just have to listen if you want to find out more and then cry a little while questioning if there even are any redeeming qualities in the whole damn human race.Be sure to subscribe/rate/review and why not go ahead and satisfy your curiosity and check out our Patreon page at https://www.patreon.com/terriblepeopledoingterribl….
