S2 E27: The Serpent

In this episode Beth and Wendy get into the weeds on Charles Sobhraj, AKA The Serpent.  One of the most notorious serial killers ever, he is said to have killed anywhere between 12 to 24 people in south-east Asia in the 70s. Most of them were young backpackers from western countries travelling the ‘Asian Hippie Trail’.

As usual we close out the show with some shout outs, crime news and of course, some tips on how not to get shmurdered aka murdered.

Shout Outs

United Shades of America on CNN is back. It is hosted by comedian and podcaster W. Kamau Bell.  Episodes: “Not all white people” and “HMONG AMERICANS AND THE SECRET WAR”   

The podcast American Scandal, particularly the episodes on Payola, which touches on racism in the music industry, and The Hare Krishna Murders, which has some correlations to this story, if only because of Westerner’s fascination with Eastern Mysticism.
