Ep. 60 - The Kenyon Laing Special: The Murder of Carol Thompson & The Murder of Jacoba 'Bubbles' Schroeder -feat. Kenyon from Wine & Crime

Description

Oh hey there! This week we’re off on a special trip to MINNESOTA and SOUTH AFRICA as we have a very special guest from Wine and Crime - Kenyon Laing! Kate kicks us off in Kenyons home state of Minnesota with the bumbling hired hit on Carol Swoboda Thompson and the many face-palm moments that followed. Georgie then takes us to South Africa to delve into the ‘Murder of Jacoba ‘Bubbles’ Schroeder’ and the infuriating assumptions made about her. Join us this week for Fargo-esque f**k-ups, Kenyons stories of drunken times past and questionable accents all around. Nice pop!
