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!

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!
