Killer Fun Crime and Entertainment

Comedy Podcasts

Killer Fun explores the intersection of crime and entertainment. A couple times a month we watch a television show, movie, read a book, play a game or delve into other forms of entertainment that involve crime - both real and fictional. Join Christy and Jackie for some well-researched facts - and laughs - every episode. We don’t LIKE crime, but we are fascinated by it. Christy is a super-sleuth when it comes to internet research and Jackie is studying psychology as an extension student in Harvard’s graduate program.
