Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! We are back to our regular format this week with two stories. Mack starts us off with an old but still very tragic slew of arsenic murders all committed by the one and only Bertha Giffords, dubbed America's first female serial killer. Liv brings us something light-hearted and discusses the origins of Ursula Shipton, aka Mother Shipton, her notorious prophecies and possible proof of her existence. This episode contains foul language, discussions about murder (including child murder), witches and some lore.
