Episode 051 – After a long stint of playing at home in Canada, this week we take you to Plainfield, Wisconsin where in the late 1950’s the entire town was shocked to find there was a depraved monster in their midst. Small in stature, shy, but somewhat odd, Ed Gein was the last person townsfolk would peg as a murderer, grave robber and necrophile. Gein’s horrific crimes went on to inspire writers to create some of the most memorable Hollywood villians of all time, namely Norman Bates in Psycho, Leatherface of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs and more.
