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+!
