S3 EPISODE 1: Murdering the Parents

True Crime Podcasts

Welcome to Season 3! In the Season 3 premiere - Episode 1 - Holly and Gemma talk about people who wanted their parents dead…not to be confused with Patricide…which is not to be confused with Pesticide. It’s a bit of a rabbit hole. Holly kicks things off with the story of Patricia (Patty) Columbo who had worse taste in men than Holly. Which is saying a lot. Then Gemma heads over to Canada to talk about Jennifer Pan who had super pushy parents up until the point she had them assassinated. Gemma covers off some amazing fan shout-outs (thanks guys!) and Holly has a special treat at the end of the Episode as a bonus – the Creepy Teen. Holly declares she is ok but then quickly corrects herself and declares all the things are terrible, Gemma is forced to use her bleep button pretty much immediately in an episode that was supposed to be less sweary, Math makes a totally dick appearance and ruins one of the stories and the girls give excellent parenting guidance. Production, recording and post production completed by Producer Craig who is getting yelled at a lot by Gemma for setting tablecloths on fire or something. Gemma mostly edited this week. All complaints should be sent to Producer Craig who can’t hear you over his ear plugs or the sound of his table-cloth ruining blowtorch. www.whichmurderer.com WARNING - Explicit language, content and themes (plus whatever else will cover us legally).
