At the Mystery on the Rocks bar you’ll find a retired sleuth, the bartender trying to settle his tab, and the down-on-her-luck lounge singer, solving mysteries and drinking cocktails. Each week a new guest enters the bar and attempts to solve an unsolved mystery alongside the regulars. Hosted by Masud Milas, Chris Stokes, and Sooz Kempner. Whilst this comedy and true crime podcast is set in a fictional crime-solving bar, the mysteries and the cocktails are very real. From true crime and bizarre occurrences to X-Files and the paranormal, all with a whodunnit or WTF happened question hanging over them. Masud makes the drinks, Chris tells the mystery and Sooz sings and plays live piano – and everyone chats and chimes in with their theories. So come in, pull up a chair, and let's crack this case.

    Jarred Christmas and Gef the Talking Mongoose

    Jarred Christmas and Gef the Talking Mongoose

    Sauntering into the bar this week is the effortlessly funny and absolutely top drawer Jarred Christmas who brightens up the bar with tales of his time on (and borderline sabotaging of) TV shows such as Celebrity Total Wipeout and Big Brother's Big Mouth and gets stuck into a particularly strange case...


    On the Isle of Man in the 1930s one family were visited by - and very soon befriended - a disembodied voice in their walls claiming to be the ghostly manifestation of a talking mongoose, named Gef. The story spread far and wide, led to worldwide media coverage, in-depth supernatural investigations and even a landmark court case...

It’s a high concept comedy and true crime podcast, set in a fictional crime-solving bar (with real cocktails!). The focus of the show is to attempt to crack a real, unsolved mystery from history – true crime and bizarre occurrences, all with a whodunnit or WTF happened question hanging over them. Masud makes the drinks, Chris tells the mystery and Sooz sings and plays live piano – and everyone chats and chimes in with their theories.

Henry has cropped up in all manner of film and TV, including The Wolf of Wall Street, Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell, Heroes Reborn, Inside Amy Schumer, but is probably best known for hosting smash hit The Last Podcast on the Left.


    When we're not getting sidetracked by having so much fun, we discuss the Murder in Setagaya case which saw an entire family brutally slain by an unknown murderer, unknown despite leaving bucketloads of DNA at the crime scene...

    Hollywood Case Files, The Story So Far...

    Hollywood Case Files, The Story So Far...

    Ahead of next week's Hollywood Case Files finale, we take a brisk walk down memory lane as we recount all the cases we've covered so far in our Hollywood series. Initially meant to be a miniseries, our Hollywood series kinda got out of hand, expanding to thirty episodes so far. As a result, our memories proved super hazy on some of the cases so join us as we try to remember the early ones and each give our own personal Top 3 from the series...


    And can you guess what the Hollywood season finale will be next time?

    Hollywood Case File #30 - Who On Earth is Tommy Wiseau?

    Hollywood Case File #30 - Who On Earth is Tommy Wiseau?

    When 'The Room' was released in 2003 it very quickly became widely recognised as the worst film ever made but a mystery which endures to this day surrounds its bizarre writer/director/star, the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau. His origins remain shrouded in mystery, thanks mainly to the man himself who refuses to say where he is from, his age or how he managed to raise the $6million dollars he spent making 'The Room'.


    His strange friendship with actor Greg Sestero combined with the cult status 'The Room' attained spawned the book and film 'The Disaster Artist' yet still the mystery of Tommy Wiseau persists. So who is he? Join us as we attempt to uncover the truth, with a few surprises along the way and maybe solve another long-standing mystery in the process...
