Dr. Vronsky continues with his ‘Big History’ of serial murder, examining war crimes committed by G.I.s against their allies and enemies alike, the profound trauma experienced by returning American soldiers, and the popular sexualization of war themes in detective and boys’ adventure magazines. Could this explain the unprecedented spike in serial killing from 1970-1990?

Proposing our primitive ancestors were genocidal rapists and cannibals, Dr. Vronsky draws parallels with the story of Cain and Abel, and discusses the surge in serial killings from 1450-1650 related to institutional witchhunts and werewolf trials. We end with a look at the 19th-century trend of murdering multiple servant girls and prostitutes in Europe and the USA.

#40. Four Nazis and a Child Killer w/ Carla Olson (Dive Bar)
01:39:35

In 1946, four German prisoners of war were executed alongside Donald Sherman Staley - one of Canada's first known serial killers. Were the POWs right to be outraged over being scheduled to hang alongside a pedophilic child killer? Or were they simply deluded as to the harm their own actions had inflicted on the world? Recorded in April, Lee sat down with filmmaker Carla Olson to talk about her documentary, 'The Last Hangman', which focuses on this fascinating story. 

Carla Olson is a producer, writer and director. Her film ‘The Last Hangman’ is being released in fall 2018. Check out the movie trailer here: https://vimeo.com/277368160
