Episode 061: Donald Gaskins, Part 8

on April 20, 2012 in Podcast Episodes, Serial Killers by

Let me start with what is becoming a habit: an apology for how long it’s been since the last episode.

Last time, well, last time we had the interview with Scott Bonn, but in the last Pee Wee Gaskins episode, Pee Wee murdered a number of so called friends and business associates.

This episode, being acquainted with Pee Wee continues to be a dangerous prospect.

Also, I’ll warn you that in the Odds and Ends section, there is considerable non-US news. I don’t have to tell you what that means for proper pronunciation.

You can also download the episode directly.

    I really appreciate you getting this podcast out to us Brian. I enjoyed it, as usual. What a monster he was! I certainly would not have been comfortable being associated with him in even the most remote of ways.

    Hi Brian. I’m a new subscriber and have been really enjoying your podcast. I’ve never heard of Donald Gaskins before, and judging from your retellings, he definitely is the meanest man in America, I’m pretty astounded that I’ve never heard of him before.
    I really enjoy the current serial killer events bit at the end of each podcast – sometimes I wonder how there could possibly be anyone left alive in the world with all these people killing each other.
    Keep up the good work!

    • Brian Combs says:

      You’re both welcome! I’ll try to get the next episode out soon.

      • Nicole says:

        I realize the podcast was made years ago but can you please fix the links so others can listen to your older serial killer episodes. I think they will be interesting just reading the notes and discussions. Have a few other people wanting to listen but arent able to. Can you help? Really would appreciate it!

      • Sarah says:

        Repeat message but I hope this reaches you…

        Hi Brian

        Are you able to make the episodes available for download again – I have been dying to re-listen to the series and share it with my boyfriend but can’t get a hold of them anywhere any more!

        Miss having new episodes to listen to but still holding out hope for the return of the old ones.

  • Bruce says:

    Mr. Brian, this is really beyond the pale; you enraptured us with this vivid and riveting PeeWee recounting and now you have become the beast, starving us for months. How can you do this to us,your faithful congregation who has sat beneath your pulpit ofterror for so long? Do you enjoy doing this? Do you want us to beg? Please please PeeeWee Combs, bring out the next episode!!!

    • Brian Combs says:

      Heh. I wasn’t trying for an object lesson in torture, but it does seem appropriate.

      The bad news is that Mrs. SK Podcast’s work schedule has been so crazy that between client work and Baby SK Podcast, I’ve not gotten any writing done in a few weeks. The good news is that by the middle of next week, her schedule gets much easier, some I should get some writing done.

  • Spud says:

    Brian, I need another episode! Please continue them!

  • Conor says:

    Brian – I just found SKPodcast 2 weeks ago and listened to the lot in one blast. Would love to hear more, even just to hear the last of Pee Wee. PS iTunes dosent show me this episode.

  • Lasse P says:

    Hi Brian,

    I have been a fan of the podcast since 2011, and have enjoyed the hours of great entertainment, however I have been a bit sad that the tantalizing story about PeeWee isn’t fully told. I really hope all of your fans, myself included, Will get the opportunity to catch the last bit of the story soon.

    Are you planning to discontinue the podcast?

    I really hope not…

    Best regards and all the best to you, Mrs. SKPodcast and baby SKPodcast!
    Greetings from Denmark, Europe

    Hello Brian!
    Thank you for a great podcast.
    I have listened to all the episodes during this week. I’m worried you have discontinued the podcast. Please say it is not so.
    Best regards
    Max

  • Frank says:

    Found your pod casts and found them quite good. Wish there were more!

  • Larry Altman says:

    Hi Brian-
    Not sure if my last post got thru to you.
    I saved all of your previous podcasts about PEE Wee Gaskins with the intent of reading all. Finally found the time recently to return to them, only to find them no longer available.

    I did get into parts 1 and 2, and found them spell binding.

    Is there anyway that I can purchase copies of them all?

    Also, do you plan to re-establish the podcast?

    Please let me know about the copies.

    Regards,

    Bian- When you resolve your hosting issue, will you make an announcement here?

  • Larry Altman says:

    Your public anxiously awaits…

  • Smitty says:
