130. Sunny and Claus von Bülow | Background, Courtship, and Warnings

We begin a deeper investigation into the scandal that rocked high society in the 1980s, the twice attempted murder of Sunny von Bulow and the subsequent trials of her second husband Claus von Bulow for those crimes.

In this first episode, we introduce and get to know the main characters in this story, Martha “Sunny” Sharp Crawford and Claus von Bulow. What happens in their lives before and up to their marriage in 1966?

There are so many sticky spiderwebs that might surprise you in this one, including Coco Chanel, Truman Capote, Ann Woodward, and the very first case of murder by insulin poisoning – it really does all come together.
