Metal Speculum Madness
It’s cold, so cold...even when they warm it up! Love the Luminol pod, the chit chat makes me feel like life is normal and I’m hanging with friends, and Caitlin’s belches are epic. The cases and stories they recount are always interesting, and not the same ones I’ve heard on 4 other true crime podcasts. I’m still working on catching up to the oldest episodes, and always look forward to Wednesdays! I’ve recommended them to friends, and my only correction to them is that rhesus macaques are pronounced “reese’s macacks”.
Mad Scientists & Overnight Gynecologists
Just started listening today and I’m on my 5th podcast. Love me some true crime but wanted less politics with my mayhem and shenanigans. Love the humor, burps, sailor speak (I am fluent myself) and love the jokes at the end. Drink more beer from Oregon! 💚💛
Well researched, not the typical cases we’ve all heard a million times, plus love the burps 👏🏼🍻keep it up girls!
