October 16, 2018

Crime Cozy continues this week with a story about a home invasion (is that even a thing?) and some strict foreign laws we're never going to test!

Also, did YOU know about luffas?!

And don't forget to listen to the end!

Season 3, Episode 15 - Crime Cozy 2; In which we’re still safe

October 8, 2018

You're sitting in your favorite chair, wrapped in a cozy quilt, sipping hot cocoa when you suddenly realize something is off with your drink. And you smell smoke. 

Have you been poisoned? Did someone set fire to your house?

Don't worry. That's extremely unlikely!

*Starting this week!* Stay until the end for some awesome bloopers!

Season 3, Episode 14 - In which Crime Crazy goes Crime Cozy!

October 1, 2018

Welcome to October! It's the time of year for fall leaves, pumpkin spice everything (if you're into that...ICK!) and seriously gory, scary true crime podcasts.

But, you know what, every true crime podcast goes that route. So, we've decided to mix things up a little this year. For the month of October, instead of going creepy, we're going cozy! Seriously scary crime stories with super cozy statistics about safety.

In our first story, we learn some new vocabulary and what people taste like. Then Diana turns the episode serious with a seriously unhappy ending (but really comforting numbers!)

This week, we also want to support some great causes!

 

Jacob Wetterling Foundation has a proven history of helping kids and families.

Season 3, Episode 13 - In which there are smart(ish) thieves and a (really) dumb murderer

September 24, 2018

Remember that episode where we decided we *might* be ok with killing someone who steals your AC?* 

Well, we may have found ONE other thing worth killing over!*

And we have NO idea why this guy thought he'd ever get away with his crimes!

*Not really guys! DO NOT end up on next week's episode!

Season 3, Episode 12 - In which we define Crime Crazy

September 17, 2018

Close your eyes and picture the craziest crime story?

Do you picture the "Crime for Dummies" version? Everything cliche and sterotypical? Like someone sat down and asked themselves "what would a criminal do" and then did just that? (no one would do that. That's Crazy).

Or is it more like a crime story that might have been made up by a couple of high-as-balls 12-year-olds asked to write a crime story for their creative writing class?

Because, either way, we've got you covered this week!

Season 3, Episode 11 – In which the colors shrieked

September 10, 2018

Eryn can’t set fires, but this guy sure can!

At least Diana’s criminal was more respectful of property. Even if ladders eluded him.

Season 3, Episode 10 - In which all you need is a typewriter and plenty of time

September 3, 2018

When you're in prison, there's not much to do. Some people read; some learn a trade; and one guy made tens of thousands of dollars!

Then, we revisit the Cecil and a case we mentioned previously. It's tragic, and it's unsolved. But it's also full of fascinating details!

Bonus: Diana *might* end up on next week's episode, and we chat about the cutest animal you've never heard of!

Season 3, Episode 9 - In which there’s a Rat

August 27, 2018

So many domestic issues this week leave us wondering if certain people should avoid marriage altogether. From jealous new wives to jealous lovers, no one is safe!

00:0000:00

Season 3, Episode 8 - In which we prove that it really IS a bad idea to stay somewhere for only $14 a night!

August 20, 2018

Know how we've started saying "Call your people" a whole lot? Well, we have some good reasons why this week. From a personal story to some old ones, 'keep in touch' proves to be really important!

This week we travel to a crime-ridden hotel, traverse the world following a priest who is definitely up to no good, and make a strange request about feet.

Season 3, Episode 7 - In which marriages don’t work out for anyone

August 13, 2018

A wife goes missing - for decades. Who is the most obvious suspect? Could it be the man who never really reported her missing? (CALL. YOUR. PEOPLE!)

A husband is murdered, and his body desecrated in a terribly upsetting way. Who should be questioned first?
