TQP 30: Chewing the Fat with the Cannibal Cop

Gil Valle has been called a lot of things: cop, husband, pervert, monster, cannibal, exonerated. Now, he can add author to this list of handles, some true, some not. In this episode, Gil signs up for a stay in the Quiet Place to talk about the trial of his life, why the other two men charged in his case are still incarcerated, what it was like going from policeman to convict in a day and making the transition to horror author. Maddux turns him onto Edward Lee’s work. Also joining this episode is book reviewer Ben Arzate as a part time co-host.

A new segment debuts in the opening monologue called The Bipolar Book Report, wherein Jeremy runs down his favorite reads of the moment. Expect this to become a regular feature. Books covered this episode include Buds by James Longmore and The Mermaid’s Revenge by Amy Cross
