Delphine LaLaurie: The Belle From Hell

Ashley & Sarah journey back to early nineteenth-century New Orleans to explore the life and crimes of serial killer Delphine LaLaurie. From her very early marriage to the infamous 1833 fire that destroyed her mansion and reputation to her exile and death in Paris. We go beyond the gratuitous Southern gothic stylings to ask what does it take to make a monster? Is it, perhaps, a monstrous time?

Ash also does a swamp impression.
