    The Nudie Run

    The Nudie Run

    In episode 48 of World's Dumbest Criminals you'll be hearing a corker of a police interview with a drunk Aussie larrikin who got done for a streaking, as well as the case of a vain criminal walnut on the run in England, who didn't like his mugshot, so he sent the media better pictures of himself to use instead.

    Sad Song of an Incel

    INTRODUCING: Live, Laugh, Larceny: A True Petty Crime Podcast

    INTRODUCING: Live, Laugh, Larceny: A True Petty Crime Podcast

    Hey, this is not an episode of World's Dumbest Criminals. It is however a story about dumb criminals, and I know you dig that kind of ridiculous action as much as I do - so I thought I'd share.
    I recently made friends with Trevin and Amanda, who produce a great show called Live, Laugh, Larceny: A True Petty Crime Podcast. It's a genre-bending comedy podcast that takes a deep dive into shallow crimes.
    Trevin and Amanda are also obsessed with dumb criminal stories, which they tell with their own creative twist.
    They take news articles about petty criminals and turn them into short stories that play out like an atmospheric audio drama. Each story is presented over their own original music along with cheesy reenactment effects. It's like an Investigation Discovery audio documentary, but about small trivial crimes like a serial cellphone snatcher in coffee shops.
    Each week, the two release an episode with weekly dreadful dilemmas, killer facts and two full length stories, covered with great detail, humour and imagination.
    If you listen through all of their episodes, you may even come across some of the same cases I've covered, but they interpret them so differently it's quite fascinating to hear.
    The story you're about to listen to is from their 86th episode: Fuelled By Trash Pizza. It's told from the perspective of a Florida Detective, so you know it's going to be a wild ride full or marina sauce and tears.
    Please enjoy this story from Live, Laugh, Larceny: and then subscribe to their show!

    Lake Worth Cookie Monster

    Lake Worth Cookie Monster

    Episode 46 of World's Dumbest Criminals is about the many trials and few tribulations of a young woman the media nicknamed Cookie Monster. She became infamous in her teens when she and a mate robbed a 9 year old Girl Scout outside a Winn-Dixie supermarket in Lake Worth, Florida. Cookie Monster went on to commit a lot more dumb crimes and claimed any punishment she received was unfair, even though it was always laughably light.

    How Not to Pick Up Women, Ladder Man

    How Not to Pick Up Women, Ladder Man

    Episode 45 of World's Dumbest Criminals is about a Hong Kong man who teaches a course on how to dominate women but preyed on the men who signed up for the course, blackmailing them into paying him more money, the legendary Aussie Ladder Man - who was arrested for stealing a ladder and went on to give one of the most ridiculous and tangential police interviewers ever recorded.

Irreverent & well told

Listen to Tara take down the misfit crims with humour & wit but
“Don’t commit a crime that sees you end up on this podcast.”

Bertie undies ,

Disgusting

I am a criminal lawyer, represent many people who find themselves in situations, such as those on your show. How dare you laugh at them and make this funny.

has mental illness ever crossed your mind?

The People you mock on your show No Doubt suffer from such things

Beck.Mc ,

Highly recommended

Tara’s dulcet Aussie twang, lady swears & irreverent humour never fails to entertain & amuse. Give it a listen- you’ll be back for more!
