Show Notes

JANE TOPPAN was a Victorian-Era Nurse with a dark secret: She was a sexual psychopath and serial killer. In part 2, we take a long, hard look into the abyss. Nurse Toppan’s sadism and cruelty reaches new heights (or depths) of depravity. Jane’s increasingly erratic behavior and inability to control her homicidal impulses ultimately dooms her to a fate worse than death. Michael and Stephanie debate the roots of evil. Was Jane born bad or molded into a monster by a callous and indifferent society? Are we all capable of evil under certain circumstances? Part 2 of 2.
