Ye Olde Crime Podcast ,

Grab a Pint and Stay a While

I LOVE the camraderie between Cody and Greg in this podcast - their back and forth banter as Cody shares each episodes subject is hysterical. The fact that the cases they cover have some sort of "whomp, whomp" factor to them (I mean, they ARE unfortunate) let's you know you're in for a good time. Makes me wish I could join them for a pint at the pub - I think they'd be fun to chat with. If you like history, and laughing A LOT, add this podcast to your list - you don't regret it.

swraia ,
