    Brittanee Drexel

    Brittanee Drexel

    Last week authorities were finally able to bring peace to Brittanee Drexel’s family!! After being identified through dental records, it was announced that Brittanee’s remains were found on May 11th AND AND AND that the piece of sh** responsible was charged with her murder. We here at Chalkline headquarters were so happy to hear the news and wanted to share her story. Now normally spring break is supposed to be the ultimate fun time. But if you’re a parent, spring break is the ultimate stressor. It’s just easier to tell your kid no. But what if you tell your kid no and they go anyway? And what if that’s the last time you speak? This is the disappearance of Brittany Drexel.

    Its cruise ship fuckery yall. I simply cannot. I won’t. I can’t even, and this case is odd as hell. The sea is a lawless land and you guys are going to want to hear EVERYTHING about it before your next trip. It all started with a phone call. A worried girl calls her grandpa, frantic as hell, wondering where her mother is because they haven’t spoken in dayssss. It would take police almost a whole month to track her down. But when they do, nothing is as it seems. Selena Gomes taught us best.

    This one's a doozy…so strap in and lets get to it. Casey Anthony ?!?! Are we sure about this? Yes. Yes, we are. But, forget her snooty little pretentious wannabe ungrateful horrible.....ya know what, we’re gonna cut this one real short. It’s a case many of you know, many have feelings toward, and many request. At its core, it is a tragedy of a baby girl who was taken from us way too soon. But this case was clouded by so much more (you guys have literally no ideadsjodhfcksdhos, sorry spazzed a little bit…anyways). This is the case of Caylee Anthony.

Love the dynamic & Chemistry

As a new podcaster myself, I love hearing other newer podcasters and you guys are , by far, one of the top newer pod shows we can relate to. Love the humor & love how you guys explain a case. Ya'll keep on keepin' on!

turbojen2 ,

Immature hosts who constantly say “like”

I couldn’t listen to a complete episode due to the fact that these two use the word “like” every few words. In order to have a successful podcast you need to stop using filler words and stop speaking like 2 gossiping Freshman girls.

moriahd11 ,

Merrian Carver

I like the podcast but this case is a little bit irritating to listen to. It’s like you read it word for word from a blog post but I also think it’s completely true that she killed herself. You don’t go on a cruise with two hand bags, no luggage or clothes.

Editing to disc Matthew shepard— you guys really turned me off on this episode. The disrespect that came about was over the top.
