    102 Making Crime Sexy, With Arielle Souma

    102 Making Crime Sexy, With Arielle Souma

    The gang are back with another historical case to solve, and helping everyone achieve that goal is comedian, writer & MC, Arielle Souma!
    Arielle not only brings some handy historical knowledge to proceedings, but also, single-handedly, makes true crime sexy ... FINALLY!
    We start by hearing about the time our guest was left in a tight spot on holiday, which resulted in a confusing turn of events and a thrilling car ride, before then moving on to hear about a case which is not only a fascinating lesson in royal history, but also one in how inept some potential perpetrators can be.
    We then hear from cherished Australian listener Vanessa who was framed by someone in her own family for something she didn't do and it looks like detective Souma gets to the bottom of that one too.

    101 Synchronising With Viv Groskop

    101 Synchronising With Viv Groskop

    In this week's episode, the Drunk Women welcome a guest who has ALL the smarts to be a top detective; it's writer, comedian and podcaster, Viv Groskop!
    Although Viv doesn't hail from the big city, she grew up having to keep her wits about her on the mean streets of Somerset in order to provide key statements to the local police - as you will hear.
    These foundation skills enable Viv to ask all the right questions and get to the nub of it all... whilst the others do what they do best... basically most of the stuff that Viv does but with about 6 drinks inside of them. All together though, they make quite a team and do a pretty thorough job in solving a case which had dire consequences for thousands of people on one fateful day.
    We then hear from a listener who needs a mystery solving which only brings home to the rest of us how stingy our Aunties actually are.

    100 One Hundredth Episode with Ricki Lake

    100 One Hundredth Episode with Ricki Lake

    Yes, that's right, Taylor, Catie and Hannah have gotten drunk at least ONE HUNDRED times (there were a few practice runs), all in the name of solving crime.... well, mostly in the name of solving crime.
    The gang have had some exemplary company along the way and this week their 100th guest-sleuth is none other than film star, talk show host & documentary maker - Ricki Lake!
    Ricki shows dedication to the force by indulging in some day-time drinking on account of appearing from a different time zone (as if by magic) and sharing the story of the time she ended up behind bars - who knew?!
    The team then get down to solving a case about a perp talented at creating some pretty cool pseudonyms, and discover that detective Lake is more than an asset to the force - they don't call her 'One-Take-Lake' for nothing - as you'll find out.
    So pop a cork and join in with this centenary episode, thanks SO much for being with us for the last one hundred shows, here's to the next one hundred! X

    99 Esther Manito & Game of Stones

    99 Esther Manito & Game of Stones

    Hooray, the Drunk Women continue to entertain themselves AND us through these socially distant times by welcoming a guest to help solve a crime, whilst getting responsibly sozzled!
    In today's episode, the gang are joined by comedian Esther Manito, whose suspicion of children on the crime scene could have been a direct result of her younger years... although we're not sure Oliver Twist would have walked backwards into the cinema...
    She proves invaluable however in today's main case which seems to play-up to the stereotype of students being big stoners, but probably not in the way YOU'RE thinking.
    There's also a royal connection and an unearthed mystery which could well reveal itself at the next coronation.
    Plus: a listener crime which proves a vacuum can be a deadly weapon.


    Heads-up: Get ready to pop the prosecco with the Drunk Women & VERY special guest next week for their ONE HUNDREDTH episode!

    98 Christine Robertson & The Lobotomobile

    98 Christine Robertson & The Lobotomobile

    In this week's episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, the gang dissect (!) the story of someone who wasn't actually breaking any laws at the time, but whose practices would certainly raise a few eyebrows if attempted today .. in more ways than one.
    It's a gripping tale, but probably not the best accompaniment to a plate of spaghetti - unless you happen to be this week's guest, comedy writer, Christine Robertson - who relished in her role as amature sleuth. 
    Christine starts proceedings by sharing with us an occasion where she and her whole school class were victim to the same crime, and it may (or may not) confirm a stereotype of the perpetrators of a certain act... or maybe it's just a cry for help? 
    To get the FULL DWSC experience this week, why not try Christine's own cocktail recipe of alternating between Aperol Spritz & yesterday's prosecco ... don't knock it till you've tried it!

    97 Dr Nidhi Gupta & The Unfit Husband

    97 Dr Nidhi Gupta & The Unfit Husband

    We all know that crime busting and the medical profession go hand-in-hand, after-all where would Holmes be without his Dr Watson?
    The cop in Diagnosis Murder wouldn't solve ANYTHING without his dad, Dr Dick Van-Dyke and don't get me STARTED on Quincy!
    Well, this week's episode of DWSC sees our sloshed sleuths welcome their very own Watson in the form of (non-drunken) Doctor Nidhi Gupta to the force.
    Nidhi is a film maker and writer and took the unexpected step of returning to front line medicine to work on the Covid 19 wards - contracting the virus herself whilst saving the lives of others. It was during this time that she became victim of perhaps the most cowardly crime EVER committed, as you'll hear for yourself.
    Our doctor / detective team then go-on to solve a crime which ends-up implicating those at the very top of society...it's a scenario which wouldn't look too out of place today.


    Talking about history repeating itself, Nidhi also talks about her amazing crowd fund project to make a film about how we can learn from past catastrophes, look here for more info:-

Never fails to brighten my day

This is simply one of my favourite podcast out there, cannot wait for the next 100 episodes!

Also, if you need a listener crime: I went to a club with friends one night when I was in college and put my coat and small bag in the coat room. At the end of the night we went to pick up our stuff only for the attendant to tell me that my bag was not there, this was despite there being a number system. I stayed there for half an hour while they looked but found nothing. I went back in the morning but nothing had showed up and nothing was returned to them or the police. Thankfully I had my wallet on me so I didn’t lose my cards, driving licence etc, just some random things women keep in their bags. A few years later a woman called my parents place telling them she had found a bag with my name and home phone number inside. She had found it in her sons bedroom in a town an hours drive away. She came by the next time she was in my hometown and my mum instantly recognised the bag. The lady told my mum that her son had told her that he had found it a short while earlier (the bag that was lost years ago) and didn’t know what to do with it. A note on her son: he is a year younger than me and we went to the same college at the same time. What happened to my bag? Did he take it years earlier and for some strange reason keep it? Why was it so prominently displayed that his mum noticed it years later? Was it hidden and his mum was looking for something else? Why did his mum automatically suspect that there was something weird about the bag given that she called my parents place before talking to him? Please solve this crime for me!!!
