A 6-part serialized mocu-mystery podcast that parodies the True Crime genre. We follow married couple Ira and Julia Leiser, (Matt Baram and Naomi Snieckus) new residents of a fictional Canadian cottage town. When three of their patio chairs go missing, they embark on an investigative journalism quest to uncover the truth about where they went. The couple are compelled to ask their lake neighbours some pretty uncomfortable questions and as accusations fly in every possible direction, it’s not long before they turn on the last possible suspects; each other.

Matt Baram and Naomi Snieckus have pulled off a wonderful heist! (They stole my focus on my mundane day, and I’m so glad they did.) This podcast is hilarious and absurd, Matt and Naomi are so funny in it, and so are the other comedians they feature on it, and this podcast is an absolute delight. It’s not only a skilled parody of true crime podcasts, it’s a comedy gem. Well done, well told, well written. And, surprisingly, moving. More, please!!
2.5 minutes in and already cracking up.
Especially like the lady.
