First: More listener-driven shenanigans
Next: The panel makes recommendations for podcasts you should be downloading. They include finishing the long-but-excellent "Crimetown," a double recommendation for "My Dad Wrote a Porno," and the brand new show "True Crime Obsessed."
Further: Undisclosed just dropped a special pre-appeal episode about the Adnan Syed case. In it, Rabia poses the question of whether justice is served when the appellate judges know less about the case than the general public.
The main event: The crime writers discuss Hulu's adaptation of "The Handmaid's Tale." Is the story about a nation of subjugated woman - forced either into servitude, exile, or procreation - a feminist manifesto? From costuming, cinematography, and color schemes, there's much to ponder.
In crime of the week: is it wrong that a topless cleaning lady would be arrested for stealing underwear?

Rated 5 out of
They mostly talk about current crime that has made headlines.
They will sometimes have guests on that are also very informative.
Although they are sometimes talking about serious creepy crimes they still manage to keep it upbeat and funny without making it seem crass.
Really difficult to do but these guys are genius at what they do.
Husband and wife team with a few of their friends mixed in that they've know for sometime.
They will also review current TV shows as well that are crime drama/based shows.
EX include Law and order, and the current HBO limit series The Night Of.
You can tell crime is their passion!
Keep it up guys!
