Killer Fun Crime and Entertainment

Comedy

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 has a Master's degree in Psychology from Harvard.

From Alcohol to Patriarchy - Murdaugh Murders S1E1

11/9/2023
The Murdaugh Murders has quite the body count - that we know of - but the unraveling of the power the family had over Hampton County began in earnest with an event in 2019: the boat crash. Mallory Beach lost her life, the other young adults involved were traumatized, and the fallout from this scandal that couldn’t be covered up would result in more tragedy years later.
