Oregon's Child Health Ranking

Liza Rodman didn't get a lot of time with her mother during those long-ago summers on Cape Cod. So quality time with an adult was welcome, and Liza's handyman/babysitter provided just that. Liza looked back fondly on their time together... until years later, when she discovered the guy was a serial killer, and there were actual body parts buried in the nearby garden.

What do you do with information like that? In Liza's case, she researched it exhaustively, then teamed up with writer JenniferJordan for the book The BabySitter: My Summers with a Serial Killer.

Both authors join us for a discussion of a charming yet dangerous psychopath.
