S10E8: My Favorite Things | The Mysterious Death of Thelma Todd & Warren G. Harding, Our Most Appropriately Named President

As we get our TDHQ2 studio dialed in, we’re bringing you a few of our favorite things! First up, Alicia has the true crime tale of “The Ice Cream Blonde” and “Hot Toddy,” actress and businesswoman Thelma Todd. Her mysterious 1935 death put a harsh light on some of Hollywood’s mobsters and shakers.

Then Stacie has a political sex scandal so amazing that it took almost a century for the full contours to be revealed. Warren G. Harding wasn’t just America’s 29th president; he was also an inveterate skirt chaser and, thankfully, a prolific and wide open letter writer. He may also have had a goofy name for his manly appendage.
