16: THE LEGEND OF LIZZIE BORDEN with Gwynedd Stuart

Don’t believe the jump rope jingle! Lizzie Borden didn’t actually give mother forty whacks. Also, it really undersells the amount of lesbian tension in this story. Yes, Sam is talking 1975’s The Legend of Lizzie Borden, which puts two sitcom greats — Elizabeth Montgomery and Katherine Helmond — into corsets to tell a true(ish) account of one of the most famous murder stories in American history. Gwynedd Stuart joins the show to share her thoughts and plan out her own murders in a surefire attempt at Lizzie Borden-esque infamy.
