Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! This week we bring you part two of our series covering America's Most Wanted, Ira Einhorn. We start off with a milestone in Ira’s guru life; Philadelphia’s Earth Day and follow him into the early 70’s. We then change course and dive into the life of Holly Maddux prior to her unfortunate chance encounter of meeting Ira. We end the episode pretty early into their tumultuous relationship, so much more to come on that later.
This episode contains foul language, discussions about misogyny, violence towards women, and a lot about the 60’s and 70’s. We’ll do our best to stay on track, but the bottles are popped!
