Poison Boy interrupts the Super Bowl hijinks to throw down some tox knowledge, covering one of the most infamous poisonings in history – the Teikoku Ginko bank murders. Then in the Venomous Media Review we discuss one of the most important books of the year – Physician Suicide Letters Answered by Pamela Wible.
