Show Notes Episode 333: It Looks Like A Big Deady Tylenol Spooktacular 2021

This week Host Dave Bledsoe reaches for something to edge off this hangover only to find something little, yellow, different...the same glass of whiskey he took to bed with him the night before. (Again) This week we kick off Spooktacular 2021 with a little random mass murder in Chicago, with the Tylenol Murders of 1982! 

Along the way we discover how Dave’s Mom foolishly trusted him not to do something incredibly stupid when he was a kid. (Same goes for today) Then we dive right into the mysterious deaths of seven people in the Chicagoland area September 1982. We go through the gruesome deaths of each in turn before turning to the frantic search for what killed them. (Shockingly, it wasn’t corporate malfeasance!) Then we follow the investigation into what happened and into who was doing it!  

Our Sponsor this week is the Poison Pill Investment Strategy, who want to say “COME ON GUYS!” We open the show with news coverage of the panic after the poisonings and close with some seasonal music by Deathlock!
