    Episode 152 - Daniel Bartlam: The Boy with the Hammer

    In 2011 a fire tore through the Bartlam home in Nottingham, England. 14 year old Daniel, his little brother Dominic and the family dog all made it safely outside, but Jacqui, their mum didn't. She had been beaten to death with a hammer and left inside the burning building. Daniel told investigators a masked intruder had killed his mum, but discoveries they made on the boy's computer soon put him at the top of the suspect list.

Addicting podcast.

I was referred to this podcast by the girls from Morbid. Yes, I’m American. Regardless, it’s a solid true crime podcast.

American fan

Just started to listen and I am hooked. You both are wonderful hosts.

Stop the political crap

Was my number one fave podcast until these last couple of months. If I wanted to listen to a politically skewed podcast - I would. That’s not what we are here for. Have seriously considered pulling my Patreon subscription but keep hoping the podcast will return to its best. Not to mention that you seem to assume to know a lot about US politics, but if you really want to have a political podcast you’ll need a lot more education than regurgitating CNN.
