We're two Mums living in Edinburgh who are obsessed with true crime and mysterious happenings, so obsessed we decided to start a podcast! Each month we take turns to tell stories from our homelands - Effie Scottish born and bred where haggis is NOT actually an animal and Marti from the land down under where no prawns have ever been thrown on a barbie, it needs to be said! So, if you want polished, professional true crime then this is not for you, maybe try Casefile. But if you love true crime and mystery like us & you can't stop talking about it, give us a listen! Its not big or clever but it is entertaining.
The Loch Ness Monster
We can't believe we live in Scotland and have yet to cover the Loch Ness Monster, so here it is! This one is actually covered by Marti who was recently up at Loch Ness and inspired to do this ep. We would love to hear your thoughts on our ep and whether you believe in the monster of the deep!
Again huge thanks to Erin our amazing podcast editor and a shout out to the Haunted or Hoax podcast featured at the beginning of our trailer, we love those ladies and were huge fans of the podcast!

Warning - this episode does contain issues around paedophilia, child murder and abuse
It's the second episode in our 1st Birthday edition and this time it's Marti's turn to tell the story that she has been obsessed by for so many years!
JonBenet Ramsey is such a well-known case Im sure you've all heard so much about this case, seen the images of the little girl with a face full of make-up dressed up in various pageant outfits and you probably have a pretty good opinion of who you think did it. But have you heard the full story?

Love the Mums
These two ladies are just the right mix of charming, warm, witty, and compassionate. They counterbalance one another as they take turns with their narrations, and i always enjoy their takes on the tales. Wish there were more, but, ah, that brings us back to the ‘mums’ part and other responsibilities! We get it. Just keep them coming! Beth
I love this show!
I hadn’t heard of this show until they started following my instagram page for my true crime blog. It’s as though they read my mind as I had been looking for a good new podcast to listen to. I’m addicted now & I blame them, but it’s okay. I love this show! Thank you so much for helping me drown out the noise at work!
