E048: The Weeping Killer

October 9, 2018

This week we read and interrupt a 1921 Tale of crime, "The Weeping Killer"! It's from Black Mask Magazine and covers the criminally under-discussed question of modern times: How many times can a mobster cry before people start to talk? The answer may surprise you! Plus Rob and Alan induct a new member into the IT Book Club: Luke of the fantastic Ink to Film Podcast. How do you join the IT Book Club? Simply rate us on iTunes/Apple Podcasts and DM us your details on Twitter and you'll get an exclusive membership card, postcards with original art, stickers, pins of Jelly the Gelatinous Cube, and more!

We also feature a promo for our friends at the Novel Predictions podcast. A great premise well executed: Two friends, one reads a book, one tries to guess the ending based on limited information and her wits. Also: It's hilarious. Find it on your favorite podcast app and at Apple Podcasts right over here.
