Episode 31-What Happened to Mr. Kitchener? (Part 1)

Stop me if you've heard this one: A man walks into a police station and says, "I put my wife down the drain." The police officer says, "Well, I guess you don't need to worry about putting the seat back down for her now!" There's a round of laughs and the man gets a pat on the back from the officers. Oh, what fun! That totally didn't happen in this case. Instead, the man's brought up on murder charges for the deaths of his wife and baby daughter. But he blames the neighbor. Just when you...

Episode 30-Happy Birfmas

ERMAGERD! It's been one year since Erica and Billy started down the rabbit hole that is true crime, mystery, and all things macabre. And what a year it's been! There's been murder and possessions and murder and plagues and murder. So what better way is there to celebrate their one-year podversary than with more murder? You're right! There is no better way! And what's better than one murder? Three murders that happened guessed it-anniversaries! Oh, you're all so stars...

Episode 29-Fanta Claus (Merry Christmas!)

Have a holly, jolly Christmas! It's the best time of the year...unless you're spending the holiday season with the perpetrator of the worst familial slaughter in U.S. history.

Either way, have yourselves a merry little beer break while Erica and Billy tackle the story of this extraordinarily evil and determined little Grinch. And be sure to have a safe and happy holiday from the whole Martinis and the Macabre...

Episode 27-Incest is the Best (Happy Thanksgiving)

Happy Thanksgiving! We here at Martinis and the Macabre would like to thank you, dear listeners, for all of the support you have given us this year! You guys are amazing! When Erica and Billy were trying to decide on a topic to cover for the first Thanksgiving podcast, they wondered, "What do people always say they're thankful for on Thanksgiving?" The obvious response was, "Family, dumbasses!" (Though they're not quite sure who responded or if it was all in their heads.) But those...

Episode 26-He Who Smelt It..

"Girl, I must (warn you) I sense something strange in my mind. Situation is (serious). Let's cure it cause we're running out of time... That girl is POISON." This week Erica and Billy delve into the mystery of The Toxic Lady, a woman who was rushed to a hospital in 1994 and the staff taking care of her started falling ill.

Episode 24-"Seat belt for my belt for my legs..."

In the first Halloween-themed episode for the month of October, Erica and Billy cover the murder of a nun in the early hours of Halloween in 1981, and the subsequent wrongful conviction and execution of the MR 17-year-old that lived across the street from the convent.

As always, listen until the end for a new...

Episode 23-Little Orphan Ani

How much red string does a task force need to connect the dots involving a serial murderer? A lot. Especially when the killer is "The Terminator" and he has 52 confirmed murders under his belt. Join Erica and Billy this week and learn how to kill with kindness. And a sawed-off shotgun. And a knife. And an ax. And evidently, Angry Birds 2. Yes, Billy has an addiction. He's come to accept it, and that is the first step in recovery. Anyone know of any good Angry Birds support groups? And, as...

The worst, right? So bad that Erica had to get extra tipsy just to talk about them! Well, not really. She chose to get a extra tipsy. What else do you do when it's been a sh*tty week and you're going to discuss little a**holes that watch some murderous movies and try to emulate them? You...

Minsode #2-The Murder of Sylvia Likens

Hi, guys! Don't you just love it when electronics fail you?! Erica and Billy do! That's why Erica is going it solo once again this week to bring you Minisode #2-The Murder of Sylvia Likens. There's not much humor to be found in this case. It's graphic. It's stomach turning. It's probably the most disturbing topic covered on this podcast and it's a totally horrific true case from Erica and Billy's homestate of Indiana. This one deserves a BRUTALITY WARNING. If you feel this may disturb you,...

Episode 18-Always Take Your Prom Date to Olive Garden

When you think of prom night, what comes to mind? Gaudy dresses and slow dances? Making out with your high school sweetheart? Friendships that will last forever (or at least until you graduate and lose touch until you find them on Facebook 10 years later and you friend them but never have an actual dialogue-only Likes and emojis)? That just got too real... Well, Erica and Billy won't be discussing any of that hogwash this episode! They're going to talk about the bloody murders of 4 family...

Episode 16-Timber!

To quote the great Ren and Stimpy: "What rolls down stairs, alone or in pairs? Runs over your neighbor's dog...What's great for a snack and fits on your back? Its LOG, LOG, LOG!" Or it could just be hundreds of thousands of innocent people tortured in the name of science by a secretive Japanese military unit during World War II. Erica and Billy will discuss "logs", government cover-ups, and a Hot Pocket-eating guy named Steve in this week's episode. Be sure to listen until the end for...
