Jodi Arias (Pt. 2) & Clarence Elkins

Episode 201,  Feb 09, 12:30 PM

If you haven’t listened to last week’s episode, then sashay away. If you have listened to part one of Brandi’s Jodi Arias coverage, then Shante, you stay. 

This week, Brandi tells us about the epic trial of Jodi Arias. Brace yourself for a dramatic make-under, a homemade t-shirt, and several plot twists. Our advice? BUCKLE UP.

Then Kristin covers the legal battles of Clarence Elkins. Stay buckled, because this one includes an appearance on the Maury Povich show, drunken chore completion, and a prosecutor who can’t keep his grubby mitts off the evidence.

And now for a note about our process. For each episode, Kristin reads a bunch of articles, then spits them back out in her very limited vocabulary. Brandi copies and pastes from the best sources on the web. And sometimes Wikipedia. (No shade, Wikipedia. We love you.) We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.

In this episode, Kristin pulled from:
“Melissa Elkins” episode of I Solved A Murder
“The Murder of Judith Johnson” episode of American Justice
“Killer Instinct” by Sara James
“Shadow of a Doubt: The Clarence Elkins Story” by Katherine Ramsland for Crime Library
