International bestselling crime writers Adam Croft and Robert Daws present a regular podcast for crime fiction fans and aficionados, including celebrity guests from the world of TV, film and books.

    Writing crime and tackling mental illness with David Mark

    Writing crime and tackling mental illness with David Mark

    In this special episode of Partners in Crime, Adam chats to best-selling author David Mark about his new book Piece of Mind (link below), which is David's memoir about living with severe mental illness and is an honest account of living with many harrowing conditions.


    They discuss his lowest moments, David tries to recall when he first noticed he was suffering and explains how it feels to live his life with mental illness. 


    We also hear about his teenage years in which he had to deal with his father suffering from depression, they talk about things you shouldn't say to those with the condition and David tells us about the time an idea for a novel stopped him from walking to a place where he was thinking about ending his life.

    Sounding like Les Dawson

    Sounding like Les Dawson

    Adrian Hobart once again joins Adam in the absence of Bob for this week's podcast, in which the pair compare colds. We hear that Adrian is just getting over his, but unfortunately for Adam, it looks like the worst is yet to come. 
     


    When our hosts finally start talking about crime fiction stuff, Adam reveals how Richard Osman's second novel did sales-wise (I wont do a spoiler, but I think you can probably guess it wasn't bad news), and we hear that despite all Osman's success, he still gets upset by bad reviews. Adrian tells us about a possible paper shortage in the book-printing world, while Adam takes a look at an Entertainment Daily article previewing 'the next big crime drama on BBC One'.
     


    Also in the podcast, Adam and Adrian have a coughing contest, while the latter reveals he effing loves submarines.

    During the war

    During the war

    Still awaiting the return of Bob next month, Adrian Hobart continues to sit in the hot seat and tells us all about his visit to Old Trafford to see his team lose to West Ham. I suppose I should have guessed he's a Manchester United fan with that accent. Our hosts have a little discussion on politics, while we hear which films Adrian has been watching last week.
     


    In crime fiction related stuff, Adam reveals which detective comedy-drama is getting a spin-off and how you can watch it, Adrian talks about his trip to crime writing festival Bloody Scotland and the pair have an interesting discussion on how writers might handle the current pandemic in their novels. Does it need to be referenced? Have a listen to hear their thoughts. 
     


    Also in the podcast, Adam reveals the winner of the McIlvanney Prize, while Adrian describes how he's often 'honking around'. Yeah, I'm not sure either.

    Doing a Geordie

    Doing a Geordie

    In this week's episode, Adrian Hobart continues to stand in for the gallivanting Bob, and vows to try and keep his name-dropping to a minimum. Adam goes through the history of Mr. Men books, while our hosts discuss the random two hot days we are having. I couldn't work out if they were complaining or are happy about it. Maybe you can decide?
     


    They do manage to get some crime fiction in too. Adam reveals who the latest famous author is to sign up for subscription newsletter platform Substack, Adrian has some exciting news about Agatha Christie's Miss Marple series and we hear all about the online BAD Sydney crime writing festival.
     


    Adam deliberates about how to send his son to school with many items when he isn't allowed a rucksack, while Adrian shows off his accent of the week, and yes, that's what the title is all about. Not what you were thinking.

    Great big whoppers

    Great big whoppers

    In episode 149 of Partners in Crime there is no Bob. He's away filming, so Adrian Hobart joins Adam for this podcast, and most likely the rest of September. Adrian tries to not let the side down by getting in his own name-drops, which includes the time he gave Ian Rankin a mug.



    There's also a bit of crime fiction stuff. Adam talks about some big names missing out on the shortlist for the McIlvanney Prize, we hear how a former MP turned crime writer is loving literary events and Adrian gives us a little insight into the discussions that go on between publishers and writers. That last one is a lot more interesting than I've made it sound.
     
    Viewers on Patreon can see Adrian's fancy studio that made Adam very jealous, while our guest host continues to impress by showing off his range of accents, including some of The Beatles. He can't do Ringo though.

    Dropping babies

    Dropping babies

    In this week's episode our hosts revert back to the traditional format of starting with some weather chat, which obviously includes some moaning about the British summer. The pair also go through some poor excuses for missing podcasts, and even blame me for last week. Ok I'll give them that one, it was my fault.



    Also in the podcast, Adam has a look at some crime fiction titles added to streaming service Britbox, Bob talks about a new crime drama premiering on Alibi this week and there's a discussion about the theatre industry slowly getting back on it's feet.
     
    Bob wonders if Patreon members would like to see his six-pack, while Adam reveals he only washes once a year. Eww.
