While Toby broadcasts from a beautiful island lake house, the rest of the panel sweats it out to bring you another episode of Crime Writers On with a brand new logo! There are true crime updates galore: We talk about the MD Court of Appeals granting cert in the continuing post-conviction struggles of Serial's Adnan Syed. Curtis Flower's mother passed away and we reflect on the meaning of injustice within injustice. Plus, the "estate" of John McLemore is suing "S-town" for violating his privacy. Legally, morally, ethically - do they have a leg to stand on?We talk about HBO's new prestige drama "Sharp Objects." As much a character study as it is a crime mystery, will the star-driven adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel thrill fans like “Gone Girl” or leave them disappointed like “True Detective" season 2?Plus, we give the Granite State some summer tourism plugs this week with shout-outs to Story Land, Santa's Village, and Clark's Trading Post (with the dancing bears and the Wolfman who shoots a gun at you).TO HEAR OUR SPOILER-FREE REVIEW OF "SHARP OBJECTS," FAST-FOWARD TO 1:14:47Then in crime of the week: blow it up your ass.SPONSORS THIS EPISODEDaily Harvest - go to daily-harvest.com use code CRIME to get three free cups in your first boxFelix Gray - Go to felixgrayglasses.com/crime to try a pair of Felix Gray glasses today!First Leaf - For 3 bottles of wine for only $15, plus free shipping go to tryfirstleaf.com/crimeSimple Contacts - get $20 off your first order at simplecontacts.com/CWO20 or enter the code CWO20 at checkoutHangman, a new novel by Jack HeathRead more »

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!

Hands down the smartest, most interesting, most informative, most entertaining, most beautifully produced, and funniest podcast about other podcasts (and True Crime) out there. I started listening a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Now I never miss a show and look forward to it each week. The hosts are full-fledged professionals who know their stuff...and have a great sense of humor.

An eclectic delight
Crime Writers On may not be for everyone, but anyone who loves a well-structured (and edited) discussion covering current cultural offerings with a heavy dose of True Crime, Mystery, Noir, and Other Good Stuff should dig it. I like to say it's like a telephone call with good friends where I don't have to do any talking. A+!
