We’re not investigators or even investigative reporters. We’re two sisters who are fascinated by crime stories, both true and fiction, and want to share them with you. We take a story in the news, or something else that interests us and we go the extra mile (or couple of yards) to find out everything we can and give you the details through our own filter of cynicism and hangriness (yes, that’s a thing). We don’t have all the answers, but we don’t care.
We like to think it’s the podcast you’d do if you had nothing better to do.
Episode 101: Sherry York, twice a victim
The brutal attack by a stranger that Sherry York suffered one night in a Portland, Maine, parking lot was compounded by the narrative that followed: her attacker was a family man and firefighter, the story went.

Sarah Everard was walking home from a friend’s house in south London on the night of March 3. She never got there. What happened next reopened wounds festering in the UK, and around the world, since the Yorkshire Ripper case more than 40 years before. And it once again raises the question, when is male […]
Episode 96: Just who WAS Shaun Harrison?
For years, Shaun Harrison, a minister and youth counselor was the go-to guy for the Boston press when they needed quotes on gang violence, youth with guns and more. That is, until, he was arrested for shooting a teenager. Maureen also does an NNW rating for the Netflix doc “Made you Look.”
100th episode was wonderful.
Interesting and funny too
I want to hang with these ladies! Very nice to hear a couple Mainers back and forth like this too
I tried to give this podcast a try and it's just so bad. The hosts speak over each other, the production value is poor, their story telling is very amatuer, and their voices are like nails on a chalkboard. So, SOOOOO bad. I don't understand how anyone can listen for more than 30 seconds.
