Wandering through such disarming settings as the cozy tearoom of an Italian housewife, or a laid-back roadside barbecue stand, Jack and J. J. take on cannibal cooks!
In this episode we explore two kinds of cannibal cookery: non-consensual (read: serial killers), and consensual. In the killer corner we talk about Leonarda Cianciulli, Joe Metheny, Katherine Knight, and Klara Mauerova. Then, in examining consensual cannibalism, we cover the cases of Mao Sugiyama, an exgender individual who cooked his genitals for dinner party guests, and the famous Armin Meiwes.
