    Episode 200 - Jimmy Savile: Predator in Plain Sight - Part 1

    Episode 200 - Jimmy Savile: Predator in Plain Sight - Part 1

    For decades, TV presenter Jimmy Savile was idolised as a national treasure in Britain. He was knighted, awarded an OBE, he rubbed shoulders with royalty, prime ministers and he ruled the roost at the BBC. Savile also raised millions for charity, for which he was rewarded with the literal keys to hospitals and children's homes across the country. The power and adoration Savile enjoyed was matched only by his perversions and depravity...
    In part 1 of this 2 part series, Hannah and Suruthi explore the truth behind Jimmy Savile's eccentric facade, delve into his secretive childhood and ask why no one stopped this monstrous predator.

    Bonus - Kate Webster: The Real Life Sweeney Todd

    Bonus - Kate Webster: The Real Life Sweeney Todd

    Thanks to ‘NOW’, and the new show ‘The Nevers’, we’re taking all you spooky bitches on a trip to Victorian London for an extra special bonus episode. And it’s a wild one...in fact, today’s episode resulted in one of the most sensational trials of the time - so big, that the future King of Sweden made the trip all the way to The Old Bailey just to watch!


    In January 1879 Mrs Julia Martha Thomas hired Kate Webster, a petty criminal, to be her live-in maid. A month later Mrs Thomas’s neighbours would complain of a foul stench coming from the woman’s home. Things only became weirder when Kate was seen wearing her boss’s clothes and allegedly selling jars of ‘Best Dripping’ to pub landlords…


    Was Kate Webster the real-life Sweeney Todd?


    Strap yourself in for theft, murder, an interesting stew, and even a cameo from the great Sir David Attenborough.

    Episode 199 - Cindy James: Invisible Torment

    Episode 199 - Cindy James: Invisible Torment

    When Cindy James' decomposing body was found bound and dumped outside an abandoned house, those who knew her best were horrified - but not entirely shocked.
    Cindy had been harassed and attacked by a seemingly all-knowing and malevolent stalker for almost a decade. But, in all those years, despite the thousands of hours of police work spent trying to find Cindy's tormentor, detectives had nothing more than a bizarre phone message to show for it...

    Episode 198 - The Death of Max Spiers

    Episode 198 - The Death of Max Spiers

    In July 2016 Max Spiers, a British conspiracy theorist, sent his mother a series of bizarre texts about how he was terrified for his life. Days later Max was found dead, after having vomited up 2 litres of black liquid. Things only became stranger when people realised that Max was meant to speak at a conference the following day about a high power paedophile ring he’d been investigating...

Love them!

I love these two so much! I love that they are unapologetically themselves and that they are not afraid to share their opinions. This isn’t a show where the hosts feel obliged to censor themselves to appeal to everybody; it’s authentic, it’s raw, it’s smart, and it’s witty!
The criticisms they offer are founded and constructive. They are not simply "hating" for the sake of hating. The cases they cover are also some of the best, I love that they cover a lot of international cases!
One of the best intellectual and witty true crime podcasts out there.

The best

Hands down my favorite podcast. I have yet to find another that I enjoy nearly as much as this one. The way Hannah and Suruthi weave in and explain the complex societal issues surrounding their cases is phenomenal. If anyone is complaining about their trashing on America, perhaps a close look in the mirror is necessary. As an American listener I can honestly say, I have yet to find an instance where they weren’t saying EXACTLY what people are thinking. Keep up the amazing work and keep telling everyone (even the privileged Americans) the truth they need to hear!

Love them, want more true crime stories

I love this podcast. This is one of my two “go to” true crime podcasts that I watch faithfully each week for the release of new episodes. These ladies are awesome story tellers and they’re a lot of fun. At first I was not that in to their silly, off track banter but I have come to enjoy it. I love how they give the geo-political context and how they talk about real social issues with every episode. My only complaint is that I have begun to grow disinterested because so much of their weekly episodes are interviews and content that is not what they do best. What they do best is true crime research and story telling. Please bring back the weekly true crime stories! I like the Red Haunted ghost stories too (most of the time) but true crime is where it’s at!
Edit: They brought back the true crime episodes, yay! I’ve kind of lost interest a little bit but I still listen to the Podcast faithfully each week. It can be a bit exhausting at times to listen to because it’s so heavy. They go in to quite a lot of heavy details in the cases they cover and their general interest in covering/touching on heavy social issues in each episode can be a bit exhausting too (although I do find it interesting and important).
