You already know, we are the Mayors of struggle city so just because we made it to this milestone of episode 10 ain’t mean sh*t’s changed.
With that said, it seems for our first episode in the double digits we decided to go all out and no topic is off the table.
If you are easily offended by topics including (but not limited to):
vaccinated people, as well as celebrity outta timin tweets about vaccination
violence against indigenous women
techniques of pussession (new term, just coined it literally means use of p*ssy to possess someone)
references to Bill Cosby
naughty nuns and rape in the catholic church
THIS IS NOT THE EPISODE FOR YOU!!!!! Think of this as the ominous sign at the top of the dark trail warning you to turn back. No hard feelings. Just skip this one.
First up, Shaunelle takes us through the horrific murder of young, pregnant, indigenous woman Loretta Saunders. Despite the swift action taken by authorities (due largely in part to Loretta being misidentified) they were not able to save Loretta. In the end, her murderer’s revealed that her death came down to a frivolous dare. That’s right, one life for one dare (yes, we can’t believe it either).
Then, Susana (who was apparently was in the mood to stir sh*t) comes to us with a case of rape in the Catholic Church. Surprisingly, the perpetrators were the most unexpected part. To paraphrase Susana “nobody suspects the nuns so they continue to get away with it”.
This episode is honest, intense and probably more than you bargained for.
We are the first to tell you that we are NOT reliable resources for any information that could impact your life in any way so we should not need to tell you all that our views on mental health and any suggestions made in that regard do NOT stem from any sort of professional authority. What we lack in knowledge, we more than make up for with our willingness to learn and understand.
To be fair though, we call ourselves clueless for a reason so I wouldn’t hold out for us to get it perfect …..ever.
Susana is up first this week with a story of a young man failed by (our contender for jackass of the year) “the system”. He slipped so far through the cracks, despite his father’s attempts to get him help, that his unstable mental state and affinity for violence were both essentially weaponized resulting in murder. A murder which could’ve been prevented.
Then Shaunelle covers the horrifying case of a young man named Kevin Bacon (no known relation to Hollywood’s Kevin Bacon) and how this man was lured to his death by a homicidal cannibal. The question we’re left with is whether or not the murderers mental health played a part in the crime.
There’s a lot going on in today’s episode …more than usual. If the beginning is any indicator then you know you’re in for a rough ride. Not only are we dropping an episode with, not 1 but 2, cases of opportunistic pervs, but we are also dealing with Susana shaking ice like a pair of maracas and alarms going off.
First up, Shaunelle covers a case she cleverly (according to her) entitled “An Officer and A Pervert” (extra points if you got the movie reference). When women were falling victim to home invasions seemingly plucked from the mind of the infamous Jerry Brudos himself, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) tried to catch him before he escalated. Unfortunately, it was too late and what started as home invasions soon lead to the murder of 2 young women. The OPP needed to catch the culprit before he struck again. They just didn’t realize the fully decorated culprit was hiding in plain sight.
Then Susana takes us on a walk down memory lane, with the infamous Mary Kay Letourneau case in which “love” (and by love we mean abuse) contributed to the derailment of a young man’s life. We’ve amended that ole rhyme just for this so it reads: First comes abuse, then comes prison ….because that’s exactly what she got (and deserved).
Ultimately, this is an episode of two entitled people from relatively privileged backgrounds abusing their power and ruining lives …buckle up
*The two topics in this episode got us both pretty heated and without realizing it I ( humble blogger Shaunelle) started speaking a little too fast.
The first story is enough to take you back to those turbulent tween (are these still a thing?) / teen days. With misunderstood intentions and lots of jealousy it’s enough to make you wonder whether or not you’re reading an entry in that diary we all know you had. Unfortunately, the frenemies of this story don’t just drift apart and go on to cyber stalk each other on Instagram …… this frenemy story ends in murder.
For our next story we strongly recommend a drink, or 10 because only complete inebriation can help you process the absolute dumpster fire of a human that is Rachel’s Jackass ex-man. His unforgiveable betrayal and a woman’s quest for justice are all unpacked at the link above or wherever you get your podcast fix.
