    RE-RELEASE: Nish Kumar & The Curious Tale of Clairvius Narcisse

    RE-RELEASE: Nish Kumar & The Curious Tale of Clairvius Narcisse

    Unable to record an episode this week due to sudden diarrhea, we dig into the archives and dust off one of our earliest episodes.
    Bookended by some new chat from Chris and Sooz, we take a relisten to when fantastic comedian Nish Kumar joined us for the crazy tale of Clairvius Narcisse, who somehow LEGIT RETURNED FROM THE DEAD.

    The Assassination of Piotr Jaroszewicz

    The Assassination of Piotr Jaroszewicz

    It's 1992 and former (and unpopular) Polish Prime Minister lives in an almost paranoid level of security - his house is fortified by an 11 foot barbed-wire-topped wall and patrolled by a vicious Rottweiler, a dog which Jaroszewicz would walk while armed with a handgun.
    Nevertheless, he and his second wife Alicja are found tortured and murdered in their home, the motivation for the crime unclear. The perpetrators equally unclear.
    Until almost 30 years later...
    Also in this episode Sooz makes the decision to pivot into directing porn. Hear her plans!

    The Cursed Bread of Pont-St-Esprit

    The Cursed Bread of Pont-St-Esprit

    The final (fingers crossed) in our trilogy (still keep em crossed) of duo episodes as Chris and Sooz tackle a mass poisoning of a French village in 1951, which led to 250 cases and 7 deaths, including a man who thought he was a plane and jumped from a second storey window.
    And want to hear about the government's policies on the distribution of flour in post-war France? Sooz didn't, so decided to counter each bread fact with a fact about dressage.
    Will that be enough to convert Chris to the sport?

    The Murder of Kyllikkii Saari

    The Murder of Kyllikkii Saari

    Needs must means the second in a trilogy of only 2 of us at the recording. This week, it's Chris and Masud who go over one of Finland's most notorious murder cases, the 17 year old Kyllikkii Saari in 1953...
    On her way back from a prayer meeting, Kyllikkii vanishes. Six months later, her remains are found in a bog. Three suspects quickly fall into the frame but which one did it? And what really happened?
    KGB spies, another well-known murder case and quite possibly the best name this podcast has ever heard all seem to be connected...

    The Lady with the Ring

    The Lady with the Ring

    Here is a fairly substantial shake-up to the formula as Sooz and Masud make up their own mystery based on what Chris told them it was called as he was away on holiday and unable to join the recording as planned.
    How close do they get? And in an episode which involves time travel, premature burial and gluten intolerant interdimensional beings, which come from the actual mystery and which come from the minds of Sooz and Masud???

So funny

I love getting a new podcast to listen to, so I was excited about this one. I’m really interested in the mystery surrounding Natalie Wood’s death, and listened with interest....I'm so glad I did! Their facts are so interesting to say the least, their jokes are beyond funny and so insightful, even when they are discussing someone’s death......AND THEN they started to discuss Fred Astaire, and how sexy Gene Kelly was. I was hooked!

Brilliant!

This is a really fun podcast and one of my favourites. Mystery, music, comedy and cocktails, what more could you ask for?

Inappropriate. unfunny and Inaccurate! Don’t bother

I love getting a new podcast to listen to, so I was excited about this one. I’m really interested in the mystery surrounding Natalie Wood’s death, and listened with interest....I really shouldn’t have bothered. Their facts are dodgy to say the least, their jokes are beyond unfunny and very inappropriate, after all they are discussing someone’s death......But I gave up completely when they started to discuss Fred Astaire, and how sexy Gene Kelly was. I’ve got nothing against either men ( or how sexy they are) but can someone explain what it’s got to do with the death of Natalie wood? I think to make this podcast work the presenters need to drink less.... or possibly more! And at least do a modicum of research into their subject matter.
