Hosted by Nicki Egan, the lead investigative journalist on this case, the series features jurors, lawyers, and over a dozen survivors telling their story together for the first time.

You Had Me At Necrophilia

Years from now, when I look back upon the year 2017, I will remember it as the year I discovered the Wine & Crime Podcast. I was hooked right from the beginning of their very first episode (which happened be about Necrophilia). The three women of W&C share such a delightful bond as they discuss the nitty and gritty details of this world's most horrific crimes, and I find it quite refreshing. Like myself, the ladys of W&C are obsessed with true crime, murder, and mayhem, and they can talk about it so casually as well as with a comedic twist that makes me feel that I am not the only one. I am not alone.

At the beginning of each episode, Amanda describes the wine they've chosen and how it relates with that episode's topic. Lucy then gives a detailed background in the subject's history, psychology, statistics, and sometimes even geography. Occasionally the gals of W&C will even include interviews with renowned experts on the subject in question. Once those bases are covere, Amanda and Kenyon each share their research on the specific cases they've chosen related to the episode's agreed-upon topic.

Some of hillarious highlights of the podcast that I feel are worth noting are: the gals comparing serial killer Eddie Leonski to the character of Ursula from Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' (which is something that has since been rehashed by the My Favorite Murder Podcast) the gals mocking and imitating the cries of Paul Michael Stephani, a.k.a. The Weepy-Voiced Killer; the gals reading and reacting to the horribly misspelled Lindbergh Baby ransome note; Kenyon’s telling of the hilarious story of Alexander Litvinenko’s assassination; the time the ladies incorperated Avril Lavigne songs into their telling the story of killer Robert Lyons, a 39-year-old man who murdered his mother because she wouldn't buy him tickets to see Avril Lavigne in concert; the telling of the intimate and toxic relationship by Ma Barker and her son Frank; the bride in the ‘Bride Crimes’ episode who created a fake email and emailed herself to “stop searching for her missing husband because because he’s ‘for sure gone’; JUST TO NAME A FEW. And there are a great many more great memorable moments...

Humor aside, the ladies of Wine & Crime are spot-on at offering empathy where empathy is due. They understand the world's issues, including true crime, are not always black and white, but fall within the gray areas between.

Every week I look forward to a new episode of the Wine & Crime Podcast, I can't recommend it enough to everyone and anyone who loves to laugh and has a taste for true crime.

They also offer some great merchandise on their website. My very favorite piece of attire is a hoody from their site that says “Spooky Little B—ch.”

I’ve since become a supporter of their podcast on Patreon, and their content on Patreon does no disappoint. I have also become a frequent commenter on their Facebook page and a follower on their Twitter account (as well as the ladies’ individual Twitter accounts).

Great Job, Ladies!!! Thank you so much for Wine & Crime!

The only laeydees I trust w true crime

Let’s be honest, this is some grim subject matter. It’s also an exercise in acknowledging the endless void with humor, wine, and Minnesotan accents so...is there anything better?

My favorite part of the week!

I always laugh at the reviews that criticize y’all talking about politics or your personal lives on your show as though you’re not allowed to talk about whatever you want on YOUR OWN PODCAST😂 My best friend and I get together to drink and listen to W&C every Thursday night. We, as Christians and Wisconsin natives, absolutely love all of your jokes and even your criticism (any Christians who think they’re perfect have TOTALLY missed the point of Christianity. And let’s be real, Wisco has birthed a lot of serial killers. Get a sense of humor, people). We absolutely adore y’all. Thanks for giving us an excuse to get together and drink every week. Keep up the great work, ladies!
