Drunk Women Solving Crime is a true crime podcast with a twist...of lime. Join writer/comedian hosts Hannah George, Catie Wilkins and Taylor Glenn as they welcome top guests from comedians to crime writers to test out their drunk detective skills. 

Each episode sees the boozed up panel tackle personal crime stories, solve true crime cases, and seek justice for your listener crimes. 

When women sit around and drink we try to solve the world’s problems. So we’re taking back the night and putting our inebriation to good use. You’re welcome. 


101 Synchronising With Viv Groskop

In this week's episode, the Drunk Women welcome a guest who has ALL the smarts to be a top detective; it's writer, comedian and podcaster, Viv Groskop!Although Viv doesn't hail from the big city, she grew up having to keep her wits about her on the mean streets of Somerset in order to provide key statements to the local police - as you will hear.These foundation skills enable Viv to ask all the right questions and get to the nub of it all... whilst the others do what they do best... basically most of the stuff that Viv does but with about 6 drinks inside of them. All together though, they make quite a team and do a pretty thorough job in solving a case which had dire consequences for thousands of people on one fateful day.We then hear from a listener who needs a mystery solving which only brings home to the rest of us how stingy our Aunties actually are.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

100 One Hundredth Episode with Ricki Lake

Yes, that's right, Taylor, Catie and Hannah have gotten drunk at least ONE HUNDRED times (there were a few practice runs), all in the name of solving crime.... well, mostly in the name of solving crime.The gang have had some exemplary company along the way and this week their 100th guest-sleuth is none other than film star, talk show host & documentary maker - Ricki Lake!Ricki shows dedication to the force by indulging in some day-time drinking on account of appearing from a different time zone (as if by magic) and sharing the story of the time she ended up behind bars - who knew?!The team then get down to solving a case about a perp talented at creating some pretty cool pseudonyms, and discover that detective Lake is more than an asset to the force - they don't call her 'One-Take-Lake' for nothing - as you'll find out.So pop a cork and join in with this centenary episode, thanks SO much for being with us for the last one hundred shows, here's to the next one hundred!

99 Esther Manito & Game of Stones

Hooray, the Drunk Women continue to entertain themselves AND us through these socially distant times by welcoming a guest to help solve a crime, whilst getting responsibly sozzled!In today's episode, the gang are joined by comedian Esther Manito, whose suspicion of children on the crime scene could have been a direct result of her younger years... although we're not sure Oliver Twist would have walked backwards into the cinema...She proves invaluable however in today's main case which seems to play-up to the stereotype of students being big stoners, but probably not in the way YOU'RE thinking.There's also a royal connection and an unearthed mystery which could well reveal itself at the next coronation.Plus: a listener crime which proves a vacuum can be a deadly weapon.Heads-up: Get ready to pop the prosecco with the Drunk Women & VERY special guest next week for their ONE HUNDREDTH episode!    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

98 Christine Robertson & The Lobotomobile

In this week's episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, the gang dissect (!) the story of someone who wasn't actually breaking any laws at the time, but whose practices would certainly raise a few eyebrows if attempted today .. in more ways than one. It's a gripping tale, but probably not the best accompaniment to a plate of spaghetti - unless you happen to be this week's guest, comedy writer, Christine Robertson - who relished in her role as amature sleuth. Christine starts proceedings by sharing with us an occasion where she and her whole school class were victim to the same crime, and it may (or may not) confirm a stereotype of the perpetrators of a certain act... or maybe it's just a cry for help? To get the FULL DWSC experience this week, why not try Christine's own cocktail recipe of alternating between Aperol Spritz & yesterday's prosecco ... don't knock it till you've tried it!   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

97 Dr Nidhi Gupta & The Unfit Husband

We all know that crime busting and the medical profession go hand-in-hand, after-all where would Holmes be without his Dr Watson?The cop in Diagnosis Murder wouldn't solve ANYTHING without his dad, Dr Dick Van-Dyke and don't get me STARTED on Quincy!Well, this week's episode of DWSC sees our sloshed sleuths welcome their very own Watson in the form of (non-drunken) Doctor Nidhi Gupta to the force.Nidhi is a film maker and writer and took the unexpected step of returning to front line medicine to work on the Covid 19 wards - contracting the virus herself whilst saving the lives of others. It was during this time that she became victim of perhaps the most cowardly crime EVER committed, as you'll hear for yourself.Our doctor / detective team then go-on to solve a crime which ends-up implicating those at the very top of society...it's a scenario which wouldn't look too out of place today.Talking about history repeating itself, Nidhi also talks about her amazing crowd fund project to make a film about how we can learn from past catastrophes, look here for more info:-greenlit.fund/project/start-stop-repeat  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

96 Fortune Feimster & The Mile-High Misdemeanour

In this week's episode, the team go stateside for their latest recruit: comedian Fortune Feimster!. Fortune brings some serious insight to a crime which would have lesser detectives well and truly stumped. The gang discuss the different ways a crime can be committed in a plane, how long it's acceptable to hide in the toilets to get a break from your kids, and how many typists is acceptable to have with you whilst travelling. Fortune shares a crime which most people wouldn't be a victim of after the year 2008, as well as accidentally blowing a listener's alibi wide open.

95 Jane Fallon: Unreliable Witness

It's another day in lockdown, but that's not gonna stop The Drunk Women from smashing a case, whilst getting smashed over Zoom. Joining them this week is bestselling author Jane Fallon, who despite not showing early promise as a reliable witness, certainly went on to prove her sleuthing-smarts, as she provides the kind of observations worthy of someone at the top of the force. This week's case involves a 'power couple' of crime and although Jane wouldn't notice them actually committing a felony, she'd certainly be able to spot them in a line up. The team then go on to hear about a listener crime which also displays some pretty stunning (if rather dangerous) crime solving skills! Who says you can't bring your A-game whilst drinking?   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

94 Jo Elvin & The Witness In The Family

In today's episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, journalist Jo Elvin brings something to this case that no other guest could. It's taken many attempts to get Jo on the show and if one of the other occasions had worked-out, this fantastic coincidence would have never come into being; to find out just how she's connected to a bank robbery in 1950s Sydney, you'll have to listen! Jo also tells us about the time an altercation with a woman who could be The Queen still keeps her awake at night, and the team also solve a listener mystery which proves that there's always an 'evil' twin.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

93 Jo Caulfield & The Self Anointed Saint

The virtual fun continues this week, as the team welcome comedian and unreliable witness, Jo Caulfield to help solve a historical crime from the archives. Jo proves she's no stranger to getting justice served to those who do wrong, but she may have inadvertently had Danny DeVito arrested by mistake... But her knowledge of the inner workings of the church prove invaluable in this week's story of self-appointed sainthood and psychopathy... so just a normal day in lock-down for our swigging detectives.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

92 Fern Britton & The Family Feud

In today's episode, Catie, Hannah and Taylor welcome a very special detective to the force, who turned up in her dressing gown, notebook in hand and rocked the investigation - it's presenter and author, Fern Britton! As well as having the grey matter to solve the case and proving time and again that she's a step ahead of the game, she also spills the beans about the time she was duped by tricksters LIVE on TV! We then get to investigate a crime with a myriad of suspects - all from the same tight-knit family, which also includes some dubious medical advice .... should you be prescribed whisky for a liver complaint? Unless you're taking notes a la Fern, you're not taking this seriously enough! The gang also make light work of cracking this week's listener crime ...who says alcohol dulls the senses  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

91 But WAS Tasha Dhanraj Kidnapped?

In this episode the Drunk Women are joined by comedy writer Tasha Dhanraj, who opens the show with a story of the time where she may, or may not have been kidnapped...it's open to interpretation.The gang then get their teeth into a case, which they really manage to flesh-out details such as; how calorific is human 'meat'? Luckily for our hosts though, detective Tasha turned-out to be somewhat of an expert in the subject of cannibalism...should we be afraid? As Taylor points-out, we're going to be afraid of EVERYONE at some point in this case. Bon appétit!   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

90 Desiree Burch's Swinging Detective

Just because we're still in lock-down at the time of record, it doesn't mean historical crimes should go unsolved by drunk women! And so Hannah, Catie and Taylor bravely grab a bottle and get started on a crime which encapsulates drugs, alcohol, adultery and a false accusation - seems like a pretty standard evening in to us. Joining them in their quest to get to the bottom of it all (crime AND bottle) is comedian Desiree Burch, who starts things-off by re-accounting the time she encountered a total jerk during rush hour. Then, during the gang's dissection of the main story, several key questions came to the fore...Are the US really king of the armchairs? Is an affair worse than indulging in opium and orgies? And do all roads ultimately lead to Bournemouth?    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

89 Frankie Ward & Crime by Clown

In today's episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, eSports presenter Frankie Ward jumps on the conference call to flex her sleuthing guns. She shares the time she was recipient of a birthday crime; which is bad enough in itself, but you could argue the real crime occurred 6 months later, thanks to an aspiring clown.Speaking of circuses, this week's main crime is a riot of political espionage, assassination and some stunning last words...oh and Catie does a rap, which she can TOTALLY pull off.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

88 Laura Lexx & The Case of The Gun Wielding Granny

The Drunk Women are back with an epic ride of a story which takes-in a landscape ranging from incompetent intruders, to prohibition, with adventures across land and sea and a debate on whether turning a women upside down and shaking her is less humane if she's of retirement age...I mean it probably is, but we'll let you decide for yourself. Helping to make all of this happen is comedian Laura Lexx who recounts a tale from her youth involving the most time efficient flasher in history!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

87 An Education With Lizzie Roper

This episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime is an education in SO many ways...we find out that Guernsey produces a very, very special type of rum, that almost every adult male who visited Madame Tussaud's during the early 2000s probably has a photo of themselves being inappropriate with the Kylie waxwork, and that this week's guest, the hilarious Lizzie Roper REALLY knows how to enjoy herself in a reclining chair!The gang then dive into a crime from history which inspired one of the greatest fictional sleuths of all time and shows that no good ever came of a trip to the woods... to find out more check out Daniel Smith’s book- https://blackwells.co.uk/bookshop/product/The-Ardlamont-Mystery-by-Daniel-Smith-author/9781782438458And why not join the Drunk Women live for a crime quiz on Instagram on Tuesday May 5th @ 8PM BST? @drunkwomensolvingcrime  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

86 Ruth Bratt & A Fiction of Fraud

Coming to you straight outta quarantine, our plucky detectives embrace the technology (and drinking alone) enabling us to engage in some sleuthing - lockdown style. Joining them, from the safety of her own home is comedian, writer, actor & improviser, Ruth Bratt!Ruth shares a crime which shows an auspicious start to her career. The gang then look at a crime in which the main perpetrator was perhaps slightly disillusioned with their own talents ...which ultimately leads them down a dishonest path.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

85 The Drunk Women & The Duel

It's the first episode in the 'brave new world' of recording, as the Drunk Women get their tech savvy nieces & nephews to hook them up to some super smart conferencing software, so the gang can continue to solve crimes whilst drinking in the comfort of their own homes. There are lots of amazing guests booked in over the coming weeks, but the feeling at Drunk Women Towers was to kick this temporary style of recording off with just Catie, Taylor & Hannah, so we can all get used to it together. This means we get the added treat of hearing from each of our hosts when THEY'VE been the victim of a crime, proving that crimes even happen to top detectives!We then get into a case, which you'd need to get up early in the morning to solve ... dawn to be precise (that will be funny once you've listened to the episode). As these strange times continue, don't forget to check out the Drunk Women on social media; You can find them as @drunkwomenpod and on Insta @drunkwomensolvingcrime where they do regular live quizzes!The next one is on Tuesday 21st April at 8pm, so bring a bottle and join-in!   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

84 Monica Heisey & Spring-Heeled Jack

In the final 'throwback' edition, the Drunk Women were joined by Canadian writer and comic, Monica Heisey. Monica bookends this episode beautifully with two occasions she was the victim of a crime - and she's probably the MOST empathetic 'victim' to have ever featured on the show.The gang then explore the murky world of 'Spring-Heeled Jack' whose baffling method of abusing his victims prompts many an interesting theory from the drunken detectives.We also find out that Hannah's family opt for a rather unorthodox parlour game on Christmas Day...Although the Drunk Women won't be together for a little while, episodes will be continuing and some fantastic guests have agreed to join-in on the drunkest, most crimey video conferencing to occur during the time of self-isolation.Stay safe and see you next week!

83 Liz Miele & The Spy With The Cold Nose

Hello to all of our socially distancing / self isolating friends! The Drunk Women are still digging-deep into their well of episodes which were recorded whilst drinking in the same room was still a regular occurrence.Joining them (in the flesh) is hilarious, New York based comic Liz Miele, who dropped-in whilst she was over in London, touring her show a few weeks ago.Liz shares a crime, which could only have been committed in the 21st century and will probably make you want to upgrade your computer firewall.The group then prove that you don't need to be a sports -fan (or have ANY sports based knowledge) to be able to solve a crime which shook the world of a particular sporting tournament. ...and there's a surprising hero in the story, who turned out to be a very good boy! We'll be back with another episode next Wednesday. In the meantime, we hope everyone out there is safe and well at this very strange time. All our love, The Drunk Women Xx.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

82 Charlie Dinkin & The Mouse Butter Murderer

You may be aware that this episode was recorded in an era when we could all get drunk in the same room, rather than over Skype; so let yourself be transported to the time when writer, director & comedian Charlie Dinkin dropped into Drunk Women Towers to share some booze, solve a crime and sit within two meters of Hannah, Catie & Taylor.Today we hear a story of a robbery taking place ON A PLANE and solve a case involving a murderer who manages to keep a saintly image - despite the fact that anyone close to her comes to a sticky end - and we also find out that 'mouse butter' was a 'thing' back in the day...We then round it all-off with a listener crime involving a fancy car and a drug cartel... standard stuff.As a side-note, thanks to the wonders of technology, episodes will continue to to go ahead from respective isolations once the studio records have all been released... we thought it best not to isolate together, no one's liver would be able to survive that!Sending all of our lovely listeners (and non-listeners) much love and strength at this odd time.The Drunk Women team Xx  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

81 Margaret Cabourn-Smith & Boop Boop Be Doop

Back in the days when everyone could shake-hands and sit in the same room as each other, lovely actor, podcaster and comedian Margret Caborn-Smith dropped into Drunk Women Towers and told some disturbing tales of 'crime-negging' which have befallen her AND some of her friends.The team then look into a case of plagiarism which implicates one of the pioneering characters of the silver screen, whist along the way, we hear about some strange crushes held by our drunk detectives, including a fictional anthropomorphised car ...The gang then attempt to solve a crime from a listener, who needs help after someone taught their son some rather inappropriate language...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

80 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE: With Andi Osho

The Drunk Women love being able to spend International Women's Day together and so decided to do a live show as part of the Vaults Festival, also raising money for child.org and joining them to do all of this was actor, comedian and writer, Andi Osho!Andi's own crime story could have easily been a plot in a James Bond novel and showed that most villains would have to get up early to have one over on her, which she also went on to demonstrate when Hannah presented a case involving a woman who inspired celebrity status for her confidence tricks - which are truly awe inspiring.The evening was rounded-off nicely by an audience member sharing a mystery of a missing engagement ring.... which actually could still be in her bag to be fair.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The gang are hanging around The Salford Lowry for the second week running, as the good people of Manchester still need them to solve some crime and drink prosecco (it's usually prosecco); and this week there's even more booze for them, as guest detective, comedian Katie Mulgrew was pregnant at the time of record, so stuck to cola and Milky Bar Buttons to keep her analytical skills sharp.Although she's off the sauce just now, Katie told us about the time a burglary happened right under her nose after a particularly boozy night out and then the team put their wits to good use, when they get to the bottom of a case involving a bisexual, opera singing, sword fighter - now THAT'S extra curricular.Don't forget to check drunkwomensolvingcrime.com to see updates on live shows which are happening all over the UK from March 2020.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

68 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE: With Kerry Howard

Although at the time of release we're all gearing-up for Christmas, the team at Drunk Women Towers invite you to cast your minds back to Halloween 2019 when our tipsy trio boarded the ghost train to foggy Corsham so they could bring Drunk Women Solving Crime to the West Country. You just need to know that because they all talk about being dressed up at the start, but other than that it could be any drunken evening, as the team dive into the life of a confidence trickster whose story became a blockbusting film... don't try to guess what the film is at this stage, because it's really annoying - all will be revealed.As usual they enlist the help of a star super-sleuth and so the wonderful actor, writer and right good laff Kerry Howard engaged her little grey cells and pretty much solved it (along with a woman in the audience who clearly LOVES the film of the story).Huge thanks to all at the Pound Arts Centre, Corsham for supplying a fine wine cellar and for their hospitality.Don't forget to check drunkwomensolvingcrime.com for show listings (some in Spring 2020 to be announced) and for exclusive Drunk Women Solving Crime merch!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

As men's month marches on apace, the Drunk Women are joined by comedian Phil Wang to help them get to the bottom of a case. Of beer. And some crime, too.The gang analyse the story of two women who not only had a thirst for gin, but for murder, and inspired a famous musical and film. Before all that though, Phil beguiles the group with not one, but two tales of crime victimhood and shows he's a VERY forgiving friend. Then, as usual the team round things off by helping a listener with their own true crime, which in this instance would go well with some mint sauce.   See the Drunk Women Live:Salford Lowry Friday 22nd November 2019Leicester Square Theatre, Tuesday 3rd December 2019drunkwomensolvingcrime.com  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

64 Men's Month Special 1 - With James Acaster

After 14 months of exclusively letting women flex their drunk detective skills, the ladies thought they'd honour International Men's Day on 19th November the only way they know how...by inviting four men round throughout the month and plying them with hard booze in order to solve a past crime.First off we have comedian James Acaster, who came laden with a 'great' cocktail recipe and a request for Tia Maria, vodka and stout... here ladies and gentlemen for your listening pleasure, is the result of that union.James kicks things off by telling a story that confirms he's more than qualified to join the force, after starting early in life at the detecting game. The gang then attempt to get to the bottom of a crime involving an unconfirmed spiritual possession (whilst in possession of some spirits of their own). They then set about cracking a listener case, with a slightly inaccurate method of proving if someone may or may not be guilty, usually reserved for the kangaroo court of the playground.Come and see The Drunk Women LIVE:Salford Lowry on 22nd Nov 2019Leicester Square London on 3rd DecFull details and tickets here: drunkwomensolvingcrime.com  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Podcaster, articulate drinker & whiskey fiend Hannah Dunleavy cheated on her 'Standard Issue' chums to help the Drunk Women solve a crime of epic proportions. At least, the size of the perpetrator was epic according to history, hence the name 'Big Bertha,’ who had a silver tongue when it came to getting people to buy whatever she was selling, regardless of whether it was hers to sell in the first place. Guest Hannah also tells a tale of her own in which she got to use some questionable self-defense tactics taught to her by her dad and this week's listener crime sets the team's sleuthing skills a-blaze!Let us know if you're 'Team Big Bertha' or not and please remember to review and recommend us!

26 Jenny Ryan, The Dug-Up Skull & A Vat Of Prosecco

Joining the Drunk Women this week is a woman who needs no introduction, but has many guises...to most, she's The Vixen, to some, she's The Bolton Brainiac, but to EVERYONE she's Jenny Ryan!Yes, The Chase's own quiz queen got into the swig of things and used her AMAZING (read: slightly frightening) knowledge of murder and body disposal to help the pissed-up detectives get to the bottom of a case which saw one poor lady lose her head back in 'olden times' AND has something to do with Britain's upper-most National Treasure. In between bottles of fizz, the blotto bobbies also grapple with a crime from Jenny's formative years and a listener's story which is a little close to home for our learned guest. You don't need to have a degree in sleuthing to guess if this episode was the first or second recording of the evening, but do pop your opinion into a review...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

25 Jessica Fostekew, Karma Cashpoint, and the Backstreet Boys Baddie

The Drunk Women invited comedian, writer and actor Jessica Fostekew of the Hoovering podcast around for some tipsy sleuthing. Jess gets stuck in with her own karmic tale involving a mysterious tenner (and some very admirable honesty on her part) before the gang crack their most modern crime yet: the story of Lou Pearlman, notorious fraudster and manager of bands including The Backstreet Boys. Although the case traumatically splits the room into singers vs. non-singers, good teamwork prevails.

24 Hannah Warman, The Dismembered Arm and The Hapless Shark

This week's episode is another throwback to the long, hot summer of 2018, when comedian, artist and singer - songwriter Hannah Warman graced Drunk Women Towers with her well-oiled presence. Hannah kicked things off by sharing a crazy story about the time she was the victim of an Uber crime, which made the UK national press. The fermented foursome then took on a case which starts with a severed arm and ends up as a high-speed (sort of) boat chase, with a life insurance scam and a shark with a digestion problem along the way. And a distressed listener shares a tale which shows that you should never go on public transport without a packet of tissues. See Hannah Warman's amazing art here: hannahwarman.comFollow her on Twitter: @hannahwarman  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

23 Wendy Wason, The Red Wallet & Charles Manson's Forgotten Victim

For the Drunk Women, this episode provides a whiff of nostalgia, as it was recorded in the heady days of Summer '18; when temperatures were high, the beer was tepid and guest Wendy Wason wafted-in like a breath of fresh air to get to the bottom of one of the most notorious criminals of the 20th century - Charles Manson. Everyone knows that the Manson 'Family' embarked on a gruesome killing spree, which shook Tinsel Town to its very core - but, fewer know about a previous victim of Manson's which gave some vital clues about his psychopathic tendencies. We also learn there's a time and a place for posting pictures of an intimate nature - and the PTA Whatsapp group isn't it apparently. AND although we don't usually let men in - Tom Cruise has a cameo in this episode, so enjoy!   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

22 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE - with Olivia Lee

The Drunk Women held court in The Pleasance Theatre for this episode, joined by a rather well-oiled crowd and the one and only comedian, actor and writer extraordinaire - Olivia Lee! Olivia proved to be not only rather adept at getting-to-grips with a true crime, but she also knows her way around a bottle of gin - our kind of sleuth. The case itself is one of towering proportions (when you listen you'll realise that was quite clever) and it's got a dodgy Count, which seems to be a staple in the world of historic true crime. Plus we get another terrifying insight into life on The Isle Of Wight, thanks to a plucky audience member -  sacré bleu!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

20 Lucy Porter & Lavinia Fisher - America's First Female Serial Killer

Comedian, actor & writer Lucy Porter had a bad start to 'Dry January' when she agreed to be The Drunk Women's first guest of 2019. But, as you'll hear, it's totally worth it as the crew dissect the case of Lavinia Fisher, thought to be America's first female serial killer, although we DO know she was hot, so we should probably forgive her. Lucy tells us about a rather niche crime she keeps falling victim to and one of our dear listeners tells us a story which will make you think twice before you go camping. www.lucyporter.co.ukplay.acast.com/s/fingersonbuzzers  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
