Rank #1: Lizzie Borden: Anatomy of a Sociopath

Podcast cover
Read more

On August 4, 1892, the town of Fall River, MA became witness to one of the more horrifying, yet fascinating crimes in modern history, the gruesome axe murders of Andrew and Abby Borden, which remain unsolved to this day. At the time, however, strong suspicion was cast upon Andrew’s daughter, Lizzie, who not only held contempt and disdain for Abby, but supposedly had her eye on her father’s money as well. Despite significant circumstantial evidence, Lizzie’s day in court saw her walk free and claim her inheritance. But the mystery remains. Did Lizzie Borden commit cold-blooded murder? And, if so, what really drove such a seemingly docile woman over the edge? Join host Ryan Kraus for a psychological exploration of the sociopath, from its conception by nature, through the act of murder, and beyond the stars into a distant future.
