Episode 96: Screaming Hillary

Tina and Hillary cover Tailhook scandal and the murder of Gus Boulis.

Tina’s Story
For years, Navy and Marine aviation officers let loose at the annual Tailhook convention. BUT when rape allegations surface, the careers of several
aviators go down in flames.

Hillary’s Story
Gus Boulis made it big with restaurant chains in the US and Canada and then really hit the jackpot with his “cruise to nowhere” gambling boats, which he sold for millions. BUT, when Boulis doesn’t get the money promised to him, things take a dark turn.
