Did you know that John Wayne Gacy was a painter? Or that MANY other serial killers dabbled in the arts? This week we are visiting the artwork of the darkest minds on Earth.
DISCLAIMER: We do not in any way want to celebrate these people or what they did. This episode is meant to be explorative of the darkness behind their art and WHY they created as they did. There was a great unease between us speaking about such disturbing content that triggered nervous laughter and odd responses. We do not wish to make light of their crimes. NSFW, Potential Trigger warning (abuse, violence).

This one is NSFW! What is the line between tasteful nude art and pornography? Is there a line? This week we are discussing nudity in art and film as well as *ahem* the sexy stuff. Possible trigger warning.
