Casting Call, Black Hands & Ozark Binge
< 1 day ago
We're ready for our close ups! Our listeners asked and answered the hypothetical question, "If there were a movie about the Crime Writers, who would be cast to play them?" The results are in from #crimewriterscasting. Let's say three out of the four of us are satisfied with the picks.We grapple with "Black Hands" (see the play on words there?) - a true crime podcast about New Zealand's Bain family murders. Rather than a re-investigation or reexamination of the case, the ten-part series is a deep, DEEP dive into David Bain's second trial with narrator Martin van Beynen's ultimate argument that the jury got it wrong.Then we stream our way through Netflix's new series, "Ozark." With its comparisons to "Breaking Bad," how does this normal-guy-caught-in-a-web-of-criminal-enterprise TV show stand on its own? Have we seen this before? Or is it a fresh take on the emerging genre?In the Crime of the Week: the suggestion box is stuffed with requests to do something about the dead people piling up in the break room.Episode sponsorsBook of the Month - get your first book for $10 at bookofthemonth.com/CRIMEWRITERSPlated - go to plated.com/crime to get 50% off your first Plated boxLe Tote - got to letote.com and enter promo code CRIME at checkout for 50% your first monthBrooklinen - get $20 off AND free shipping with promo code CRIME at Brooklinen.comBeachbody on Demand - text CRIME to 303030
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!
