207 DWSC LIVE: With Rachel Fairburn

As we continue to share the fun of this year's Edinburgh run with you all, it's time to bring-out the true crime big guns, as Taylor, Hannah & Catie welcomes one of the best-known names of the genre, she's one half of hit podcast 'All Killa, No Filla', Rachel Fairburn!Yes, there were audible gasps from the crowd as Rachel was introduced to the stage, which is no surprise, as not only does she dominate the true crime charts but is also one of the best-known names on the comedy circuit and not only can she talk about and solve true crime, but she also has a tale or three of her own to bring to the table, which starts things off very nicelyWe then all find out that one of Scotland's biggest ne'er-do-wells was called Gregor McGregor.... which probably means his parents either didn't like him, or had a total lack of imagination.We then finish the show-off with an epic story from an audience member which will leave you with a hankering for a massive burrito...

206 DWSC LIVE: With Abi Clarke

In this week's episode, the packed Edinburgh Fringe audience were treated to the presence of hilarious comedian, YouTuber and crime fighter, Abi Clarke! It's very clear in the crime Abi shares at the start of the show, that she was born to do this podcast, and has probably invented a new crime-fighting character, it's so handy that she's already got the costume! The group then delves into a case which could be a truly victimless crime, at the very least one which produced its own merchandise and I'll bet my bottom dollar, that you'll love the perp in the end...And finally, we hear from a member of the audience, who gives us an insight into being both the victim and perp of criminal activity ... and let's just say, that being on the wrong side of the law NEVER pays, so don't do it kids!

Suchandrika gets the ball rolling for us with a double crime, which although 10 years apart have startling similarities, plus the threat that that third time unlucky is just around the corner ramps-up the tension. We then hear about a story, which flags-up several flaws in an otherwise audacious plan - sacré bleu, BUY A BIKE WHY DONCHA!

190 Rosalind Blessed Will Wait For You

Joining the Drunk Women for much merriment and mirth is the incredible actor, writer & podcaster, Rosalind Blessed! In what turns-out to be a very 'second record', we start by hearing from Rosalind about a crime for which she gives us the naked-facts and which also allows her to display a pretty good background in sleuthing - welcome to the force! The whole gang then looks at a case, which not only inspired one of the greatest stories in literature, but also one could argue (if you're Catie), the plot of Jaws!We then hear from a listener about a mystery which could win those involved an Oscar - although probably more worthy of a TV Quick Award if properly examined, either way, it's a proper drama! Join the Drunk Women for a record LIVE over Zoom on Wednesday 8th June 2022 - £3 to Patreons, or £5 per ticket!You can also come to their final London Residency of 2022, on Friday (or FriYAY) 17th June .

Richard, if you're listening (which he surely is), you're welcome!We then hear from a listener who has a crime that inspires a whole thread of nostalgia for our detectives, which probably didn't help to solve the case, but definitely didn't make things worse.

It's another rockin' DWSC London residency, and joining Taylor, Hannah & Catie in the mayhem is comedian, writer, and podcaster, Stevie Martin!Stevie begins by telling the sold-out audience about a crime that illustrates how much she wants to see the good in people, or just one person in particular, who she's never met and hopefully never will!The team then gets involved in a case that proves that support is indeed key, even if your mother curses you!We then hear from a member of the audience who recounts a story in which they flip flop from victim to perp back to victim again, and with whom Taylor finds some unusual similarities, it's a lot of fun!The Drunk Women are appearing live in theatres AND on Zoom during 2022, for full details check out their website: drunkwomensolvingcrime.comAnd check them out on Patreon for ad-free eps, extras and access to live Zoom records!

The group then get involved with a crime which features an overachiever, who probably should have either stuck to his first career, or had some therapy, or maybe done both of these things... but then, we wouldn't have had this BRILLIANT story to look into, so swings n' roundabouts...We then hear from a lovely audience member who retells the story of an absolute wrong'un who hacked into and then blocked her from her Insta accounts, seemingly with no reason other than to cause distress ... leaving the Drunk Women Thirsty for justice (and prosecco).Watch the Drunk Women record from the comfort of your own home, by either supporting their Patreon - patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime OR by checking out their website for details, where you'll also find information on their LIVE shows taking place during 2022 - drunkwomensolvingcrime.com Hosted on Acast.

186 Beth Morrey & The Floating Floor

After an unplanned one week hiatus (see below for details), the team have burst back into podland to bring you this fun-filled afternoon spent with the brilliant author Beth Morrey! Before everyone knuckled down to solve a case which will have the gentrified inhabitants of a particular London borough wondering if this could affect their house prices, Beth recounted a time she barely noticed she was victim of a crime (although the story was particularly triggering for one member of the DWSC team, see below). We then hear a listener story at the end of the show, in which the criminals involved certainly made a meal of their misdemeanour! Come and see the Drunk Women at their London Residency and you can also watch them from home when they do their next two Zoom records on May 5th and May 18th!For full details go to: drunkwomensolvingcrime.compatreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrimeMESSAGE FROM PRODUCER AMANDA Hello lovely listeners, Producer Amanda here. I'm writing this exactly one week after I came home to find my flat burgled and have since been processing the loss of those irreplaceable items given to me by people no longer here for me to hug.But, all the support I received from far and wide really has been a huge help, not least the understanding from DWSC fans that we were unable to put out last week's episode, after my laptop was one of the casualties of the robbery.I was so touched at how fully everyone embraced our famed #FemaleWorkplace along with Hannah, Taylor & Catie, whom I'm lucky enough not to just call colleagues, but three of my very best friends, in fact they were among the first people I turned to when I arrived home that day and they of course showed me the love and support I have received from them countless times since I was lucky enough to start my working relationship with them (I'm still waiting for them to solve it though, maybe it could be a future case).I've also been so touched at the kindness and understanding from the DWSC family of listeners, patreons and past guests, who have reached out to offer me support - one guy even received a twitter ban for expressing his disgust at my perpetrator - it would appear chivalry is very much alive in our gang, and that we are part of a very special tribe.... which you'll NEVER leave, UNDERSTAND?!We'll be back with a bang this Wednesday with a fantastic episode featuring the brilliant Beth Morrey, which is well and truly worth the wait. Once again, all my love and thanks for your patience and if you join us on a live Zoom, or theatre show (dates to be announced SOON) I'll show my gratitude by doing a reverse strip tease for you on an individual basis, I'll start off fully clothed, but will slowly add more layers, whilst dancing to 90s R&B and maintaining eye contact throughout ...it'll be a lot of fun. Producer Amanda Xx  Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
27/04/2257m 20s

No episode this week, here's why...

Normally today we would be putting out another cracking DWSC episode; unfortunately this week we will not be releasing an episode. This is because our dear producer Amanda came home this weekend to discover her flat had been burgled (I know, life imitating art, right?) Along with the devastation and sense of violation that brings, the intruder stole her laptop and all of her's jewellery, including this peacock brooch (pictured). It is a precious family heirloom, which Amanda's Great Grandfather had made for his wife, out of gems which a wartime evacuee they were housing gave as a thank-you gift to them (the evacuee's family owned a jewellery business). We are posting it here as a long-shot that anyone might spot this piece out in the world - on eBay, in a pawn shop in London, on Facebook marketplace - wherever. It is truly one of a kind and irreplaceable and would mean the world to our Amanda if it was some how, some way, returned to her. The good news is that we're a tight-knit female workplace and we will help Amanda regroup and will be back in action by next week! Lotsa love,DWSC Hosted on Acast.

185 Lauren Layfield & Mean Girls X5

The Drunk Women are giddy to be welcoming this week's guest IRL, as they enter the studio for the first time in 2 years! Joining them for this momentous occasion is TV & Radio presenter Lauren Layfield, who told the team about the most expensive taxi fare in history, which left her feeling a bit of a 'Dong'. The team then pops some corks, whilst they look into a case, which was a rather sober affair on the outside, and also reveals that gang culture is really just an amped-up version of 'Mean Girls.' Lastly, the team hears from a listener who was Dancin' in the Dark with her crime...until now....Join the Drunk Women at one of their live shows in 2022!

184 DWSC LIVE: With Gráinne Maguire

Recorded at their London residency in February 2022, the whole team is back together, and joining them is not only a room packed to the rafters of fellow drunk detectives but also returned to the force, comedian, and right-wing political pundit** Gráinne Maguire!** This might be a lie (it definitely IS a lie) Gráinne is back to treat us to another crime story from her life, this time it looks as though she may also be the perpetrator, due to inaction rather than malicious intent. The team then crack into a case that would have even Miss Marple and Poirot scratching their heads for answers. We then hear from a member of the audience whose Roman holiday had her returning to the UK with a suspect list that reads like the beginning of a joke.Check out drunkwomensolvingcrime.com for full details of upcoming live shows AND support them on Patreon HERE: patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

182: DWSC LIVE: With Angela Barnes

The Drunk Women have gone INTERNATIONAL - yes, they crossed water in A PLANE to the beautiful island of Guernsey to record this show in front of a fantastic audience of Sarnians (you'll find out what that means as you listen to the ep), BUT this episode has 60% less sass than usual, as Catie was unable to join the team, thanks to a horribly times bought of Covid, so Taylor and Hannah have no one to keep them in check, apart from the amazing Angela Barnes, who also hopped across to do a fantastic job at being the guest. As Angela has been on the show before, she dug deep and found another crime to talk about at the top of the show, and this time she opted to 'keep it light' we'll leave it up to you to decide if she managed that!The team then cracks into a case which will have struck a chord with many of the people in the live audience, not that crime is something on the forefront of their minds, as it turns out there isn't much need for a locksmith on that island!We then hear from an audience member, whose story WILL make you feel old...but don't worry she was old enough to accept the prize for telling her tale. Come and see Catie, Taylor & Hannah LIVE throughout 2022!

181 Lily Phillips' Best of Three

This week's episode harks back to when Taylor and Hannah were holding the fort at their London residency as Catie recovered from Covid, but fear not sass-fans, as our very own detective sasshole makes an appearance to help solve a listener crime of Uber proportions in the final part of the pod!Joining Taylor and Hannah on stage though is the brilliant comedian Lily Phillips, whose day of encountering crime in The Big Apple was the true tourist experience the guidebooks don't tell you about.

DWSC LIVE: With Nat Luurtsema

This episode was recorded at the start of 2022, so fresh into the year in fact, that Hannah broke dry January for it!BUT, it was a bittersweet time, as although the team was thrilled to be back on stage at The Covent Garden Studios with a fantastic crowd, one of the gang had finally succumbed to Covid. Yes, unfortunately, there is around 60% less sass than usual in this episode, as detective Sasshole Catie was locked away in quarantine.At least our fantastic guest comedian and writer, Nat Luurtsema was on-hand not only to relay a most audacious criminal encounter but also to lend some sauce to a meaty case, which made Hannah's mouth water.We also get to hear from an audience member whose story got the crowd 'buzzing' with excitement.If YOU want to see our gals LIVE in London's Westend, then come along to one of their upcoming residencies at The Covent Garden Studios, for dates and tickets, go to https://dice.fm/venue/covent-garden-studios or drunkwomensolvingcrime.comAND you can also support their Patreon to have access to extra records, watch episodes recorded over zoom, shout outs and ad-free eps!patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

AND this week's listener crime will have you thinking twice about dog ownership.

It's always the season to listen to Eleanor share a tale in which a combination of naivety and creepiness are both at play and to hear a story which originates in the mountains of North Carolina ...which either is or isn't classed as an Appalachian ... perhaps the fact we don't know is an abomination.... what isn't an abomination though is this week's audience crime, but in fact a load of pants...Keep watching @drunkwomenpod (Twitter) / @drunkwomensolvingcrime (insta) & drunkwomensolvingcrime.com for details of announcements for 2022 - Taylor, Hannah &, Catie have lots of fun stuff planned, so hope to see you soon!

170 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE: With Felicity Ward

The Drunk Women are here again and this episode is hot off the press of their double show at The Leicester Square theatre only last week (at the time of release - obvs). As this was recorded at the start of December, the vibe is very much that of an office Christmas party, mainly because of Hannah's outfit. Someone who didn't get the Christmas memo though was the first guest of the evening, the wonderful comedian, writer, and actor, Felicity Ward! Felicity's outfit AND crime take us back to beachside Australia of the 1990s - a welcome break for us all before our main case brings on the debate of when the Bikini was invented** and this week's audience crime will have us all wondering if the perp had a gun in his pocket, or was he just pleased to see her?Check out the DWSC Patreon for extra content, ad-free eps, videos, and more! patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime**FYI, the heckler was WRONG... they did exist as a two-piece in the 1930s, but they weren't referred to as Bikinis until 1946 when the name was used to commemorate the nuclear tests carried out on the Pacific island of Bikini Atoll.

169 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE: With Luisa Omielan

It's been a long time coming, but the Drunk Women finally made it back to Manchester for another fantastic live show at The Salford Lowry! The crowd obviously missed Taylor, Catie, and Hannah as much as our drunk detectives missed them, and bringing her own brand of cheer was this week's wonderful guest, comedian Luisa Omelian!Luisa started things off with a crime in which several suspects are up for discussion - but is the real crime the cost of a beef fillet? As the gang hasn't seen their Manchester friends in a while, it seemed only right that this week's crime should have something of a local flavor... although it's probably not something that great city should only be known for! And to finish things off, this week's listener crime is brought to us by not one, but TWO members of the audience - it's a doubleheader ladies and gentlemen! Join Taylor, Hannah and Catie on their Patreon page, for the chance to watch along to remote records, extra content, shout outs and much more! patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

The team then roll out the barrel for the main story of the episode and you WILL have a barrel of fun and finally, this week's audience member provides a crime mystery which is basically just some EXCELLENT gossip about someone in her friendship circle ... we won't tell a soul, promise.

166 MEN'S MONTH: With Nick Mohammed

At the time of release, it's the 3rd Wednesday in November, which means Taylor, Catie, and Hannah welcome the 3rd (and penultimate) man for Men's Month 2021 and it's only the wonderful actor and comedian, Nick Mohammed, who recorded this whilst filming in New Mexico no less! Nick starts us off with a trio of crimes that he has fallen victim to, one of which proves the grass really isn't greener on the other side.The team then gets their heads around a crime that throws up important questions like, how micro is microfilm? Are paper boys over 18? And was this week's listener crime actually solved? Come and see the DWSC LIVE!

164 MEN'S MONTH LIVE: With Kiell Smith Bynoe

It's November, which can only mean one thing... nope, not Guy Fawks night... Thanks Giving? More like No Thanks (Giving), because at Drunk Women Towers the only thing the team will celebrate for four weeks straight is International Men's Day on 19th November, which means it raining MEN all month long!Men's Month 2021 is a particularly special affair, as at least one of our guests has been recorded at a live show and this fantastic episode welcomes actor Kiell Smith Bynoe as our very first audience-friendly guy - it's the role of his life and he embraced it as tightly as the bottle of tequila he brought to the stage. Kiell kicks-off the show with a story that will invoke nostalgia for your first mobile phone, whilst also making you wonder why he went to school with people who had names like Brian and Leslie. The team then collectively crushes a case that could very much be described as bad cop / worst cop and then we hear from a member of the audience whose crime to solve is worthy of Toy Story.

163 Feeling 'Seen' with Sarah Mills

Joining the Drunk Women hijinx this week is a last whose personal crime story is either a tale of dole queue drudgery or one of validation (we'll let you decide), it's writer and comedian, Sarah Mills!Sarah's show opener is a story of first and grit, which can also be said of the woman featured in this week's true crime case - it'll probably have you rushing out to get a cat AND make you want to put the heating on full pelt - did you know pelt can mean an animal skin, as well as in the context of putting the heating on full? That knowledge will stand you in good stead for this week's ep, so you're welcome!As always we hear from a listener to round off the show and today is no different, although there were a few shocks to uncover in this person's family tree ....

Izzy starts us off with a story that heralds from a night out at one of the second-best venues in a UK seaside town.

Joining Taylor, Catie and Hannah is the brilliant comedian Mary O'Connell who sets the crime-solving scene with a story of under 18s raving which will melt the coldest heart. We then dive into a true crime that starts off debating the role and efficiency of using a muff... much to everyone's delight. We then hear from an audience member who has been stewing on a wrongdoing for 25 years until she finally gets the closure she deserves.See the Drunk Women LIVE at their London residency - museumofcomedy.comFor their Christmas Shows in Manchester and London go to - leicestersquaretheatre.com / thelowry.comFor all the extras on Patreon go to - patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

We then round things off with a very eager audience member, who desperately needed the help of our amateur sleuths and by jove, I think they solved it ... or at least didn't make things worse!COME AND SEE THE DRUNK WOMEN LIVE!

Dinner In The Clink, With Hannah Cunningham

Much fun was had in the making of this episode and a big part of that was this week's crime-solving guest, make-up artist, TV presenter, and star of BBC's Glow-Up, it's Hannah Cunningham AKA Empty Alien, or 'cool' Hannah as she shall now be known, although nothing was cool about the crime she shares at the start of the show, thanks to the creepy man in slacks. The team then digs deep into a historical crime, which could almost be referred to as highbrow, especially after Taylor displays a latent talent, which although has no use at all, is impressive, to say the least! We then of course hear from a listener who needs our help in getting to the bottom of a most puzzling display of road rage. Come and see the Drunk Women LIVE during 2021.

Welcome to another episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, where this week comedian Sajeela Kershi recounts just a run-of-the-mill crime that she found herself caught up in, it's hardly a story .... JOKING!! Sajeela's story is the absolute epitome of drama! It's the stuff of films and we are SO lucky to have her on the show to share it with us. Once you've caught your breath from that, we then hear about a story that is the acid test of our detective's abilities. We then hear from a listener who needs some clarification of a mugger's intentions. This episode was released during the Euro Championships on the day England face Denmark in the semis (f'nar) and so Taylor decided that this week's Patreon shout-outs should reflect some sports-ball fever.

The gang are here again and delighted to be joined by the wonderful entrepreneur and first-class detective, Caroline Newte Hardie who brings with her more than one tale of woe of public transport shenanigans - one of them (almost ) directly connected to Taylor, Catie, and Hannah .... but what can it be? We then hear about a case that sounds similar to how politicians seem to be behaving today and get a very meditative Patreon shout-out courtesy of Taylor(get your own shout-out by heading to patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime). And as always, the team solve a crime sent in from a listener and the verdict this week is pretty unanimous!  Hosted on Acast.

The team then discusses a case which could lead to the finding out that John Lennon and Paul McCartney were part of an audacious plot ....or it could just be two other fellas called John and Paul. And then, as always, we hear from a listener who has a crime itch that needs scratching, and this week, it looks like they actually get the mystery solved for them!If you want your name 'shouted-out' by Taylor in her own unique way, or fancy some extra content, then head over to the DWSC Patreon page and see what's on offer: patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

138 Briony May Williams: Nobody's fool

The Drunk Women are sorry to say that today's episode is incomplete and only thirteen and a half minutes long. Taylor, Catie, and Hannah wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused. ...APRIL FOOL** if anything this episode is slightly longer than the others, but as it was recorded on April Fools Day, the ladies are doing something a little different and presenting a string of cases in which 'pranks' have had some disastrous results.And joining them this week is the fantastic presenter and Great British Bake-Off Semi-Finalist, Briony May Williams! Briony starts things off by telling us about the time she fell victim to opportunist crime, in which you could argue that the perpetrator was just indulging in some carpe diem and she also enlightens us as to why our American listeners will know 'Bake-Off' as the 'The Great British Cooking Show'! After all that, we hear from a listener who with Catie has a lot in common....Elvis has left the butter out. ** We acknowledge that the joke is now on us. Take a look at the DWSC Patreon page, for videos, extra content, and ad-free episodes: patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

127 Catherine Bohart & The Sassy Pamphlet

WARNING: This episode, thanks to Catie, is loaded with sass! Luckily, this week's guest, comedian Catherine Bohart is more than a match for anyone in the sassy stakes, although the crime she shares with us at the start doesn't find her at peak sass, but then everyone deserves a day off.The gang then gets to the bottom of a case which gives debate to all the big questions...such as if Margret Thatcher really did like a game of ibble-dibble?And finally, this week's listener managed to solve their own crime but takes us that journey - although Catherine still has some questions...The Drunk Women are doing a LIVE STREAM on Saturday 13th March 2021!

Just before Christmas 2020, Taylor, Hannah & Catie got all dressed-up and had somewhere to go! Yes, the team headed to the (beautiful) Clapham Grand theatre in London to do one of their amazing sell-out live shows ... unfortunately at the last minute it was apparent that this would not be able to take place - but the show MUST go on and so it did in the form of a glorious live stream!Yes, The Drunk Women were delighted to still be able to go ahead with the show and that so many people turned-up in their comfy clothes, glass in hand to watch the proceedings from their sofas.If you missed-out, then never fear the video is now available on their Patreon - patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime.As the team were 'back in the room', this also meant that we were treated to a live guest in the form of comedian, Amy Gledhill.

120 In The Dog House, with Sara Barron.

When it comes to drunken, true-crime solving, you can't keep a good woman down - something we already knew in regards to hosts, Catie, Hannah and Taylor, but we also now know to be true of comedian Sarah Barron, who agreed to join-in with the semi-sloshed sleuthing for today's episode. Sara started-off with a warning for any new parents, that the sheer exhaustion of a new baby can invite crime into your life (that and having a word doc named 'passwords' on the desktop of your laptop). The crew then bit-down into a case in which the perpetrator's life path had also seemingly pushed them into a slipstream of criminal activity, which was so out of character, it's difficult not to have some degree of empathy - especially if you're a a fan of dogs!The ladies then give some closure to a listener who cannot be sure if they've been the victim of a crime ...spoiler alert, they probably were.Don't forget to send your crimes that need solving to The Drunk Women ...they certainly won't make it worse: drunkwomensolvingcrime@gmail.comAND have a look at their Patreon page for videos, extra content with guests, ad free episodes AND the DWSC lock-in! patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

In this episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, the wine flowed freely as the team welcomed writer, actor and producer Natasha Vasandani to the force and let their little grey cells run all-over a case which just goes to prove that not every granny likes to knit for a hobby!Natasha kicks the whole thing off as she seeks closure for a wrongdoing at primary school (which depressingly wasn't all that long ago) and also highlights that some words will have a VERY different meaning on either side of the pond, potentially leading to hilarious consequences.We also hear that Hannah (AKA detective Buttstuff) finds a familial connection to The Titanic (sort of) and this week's listener crime makes a mug of us all.The Drunk Women will be LIVE on 15th December 2020 at The Clapham Grand.For the first time ever, the show will be live streamed, so you can watch anywhere in the world!

117 MEN'S MONTH: Romesh Ranganathan

As this year's 'Men's Month' draws to a close, who better to usher it out than the fantastic comedian, presenter and trainer enthusiast; Romesh Ranganathan! Romesh brings with him a tale of a crime which has probably marred what should be a pretty great memory, but at least he can take comfort in his enviable sartorial style ... probably. The team then get their bottle caps off, whilst putting their thinking caps on to try and get to the bottom of a case with more than a few twists (of lime), whilst assessing just how gullible they would be if they found themselves in the same situation as this week's perps (ans: just as gullible).And as usual we hear from a listener who is in need of our crack team's investigative skills - this week we get some great advice on how to deal with shop-based trouble makers in pretty convincing role-play. Thanks so much to all the guys who have guested on Men's Month 2020, it's been a blast and look forward to welcome four more dudes to the force in 2021.

116 MEN'S MONTH: Adam Buxton

It's the penultimate episode of Men's Month 2020, so Catie, Hannah and Taylor decided the time had come to unleash the super-sleuthing skills of the one and only, comedian, writer and podcast king - Mr Adam Buxton!If you're in need of some fun and frivolity (and let's face it, you probably are), then look no further than this episode, which features stories from some of Adam's many bike related crime stories, which may (or may not) involve Mark Zukerberg and a listener's fridge based mystery - which Adam solves in just two words - he really is an asset to the force.Our crime busting boozers, also dive into a story, which takes us into the world of art and involves perhaps one of the worst attempts at a criminal disguise - which wouldn't look out of place in an Inspector Clouseau film - and also depicts probably one of the unluckiest first days in a job ever!Come and see the Drunk Women LIVE at The Clapham Grand on 15th December 2020, with guests: Kate Thornton & Michelle de Swarte - for information and tickets, visit: claphamgrand.com AND check-out DWSC's brand new Patreon page, where you can find extra content, videos, ad free eps and more : patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

114 MEN'S MONTH: Nish Kumar

At the time of release for this episode, it's November 2020, which can only mean one thing ... THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN!Yes, Hannah, Taylor & Catie decided to give the men of the comedy world a well-earned leg-up, by allowing four of them on the show throughout the month - in honour of International Men's Day on November 19th. And to kick things off for us this year is the fantastic Nish Kumar, whose enthusiasm for solving crime is as infectious as his laugh.Nish and the gang immerse themselves into a story which has some rather unexpected plot twists, as well as an accidental key player in canine form. Before that, Nish begins the show with a tale which either shows his heroics, or that his mum is utterly terrifying...probably a bit of both. To round things off, we hear from a listener, whose crime probably shouldn't be listened to whilst eating, and just goes to prove - you can't polish a turd.  Hosted on Acast.

113 Lisa Holdsworth & The Belles Of The Ball

Then, cherished listener Lisa provides a crime which took it's time to be solved - you'll understand what we mean by that by listening!

112 Ariane Sherine & The Stressful Picnic

The women are drunk, there's an historical true crime that needs solving and for the 112th time, the two things are in the same place, at the same time - yes, our sozzled detectives are back and joining them with her own special brand of sleuthing smarts, is author, comedian and soon to be pop sensation, Ariane Sherine!Ariane starts off proceedings by recounting a crime, which could have lead to life-long happiness, but instead just gave some intel into how some law enforcers behaviour is less than exemplary. We then hear about a case from history, which may have stumped the male elite of the day, but proves no match for four tipsy women...just how stressful IS a picnic to plan?And then, we hear from a listener who needs some light-shedding on a harrowing time - of which the crime was just a tiny part.After hearing this, you'll go straight out and get your own 'anxiety chocolate'.See the Drunk Women LIVE at The Clapham Grand on Wednesday 2nd Dec.Tickets and info all found at claphamgrand.com Hosted on Acast.

111 Sarah Callaghan & The Porcine Perpetrators

Today’s episode of DWSC welcomes comedian and poet Sarah Callaghan to the force, who brought with her a tale of criminal woe which was triggering for The Drunk Women, as it would appear that old people aren’t always as sweet as they may appear.Our super-sleuths then learn about a particularly strange trend in law enforcement which causes Catie to reach the top tier of incredulity and quite rightly so!This week’s listener crime is a cautionary tale which many people during lockdown would have unfortunately been victim to.

108 Sarah Keyworth: Here With Bells-On

Just like moths to a flame, you can’t keep the Drunk Women away from a bottle of fizz, or a crime that needs solving, and joining them to bump their head into that beautiful light, is comedian, podcaster and absolute trooper, Sarah Keyworth.Things get-off to a showbizzy start, when Sarah recounts a crime which *could* have been the result of mistaken identity, or due to Mariah Carey living a far more unassuming life than we give her credit for.The gang then hunker-down to a case which I think we can all agree will make us eternally grateful for modern medicine…when was the last time a physician stuck their finger in your ear by way of diagnosis? We’re guessing never.Then, as ever we get to hear from a listener whose crime is solved unanimously and completely – you’re welcome.Don’t forget to buy tickets for DWSC LIVE at The Clapham Grand on December 2nd, 2020!Full info and tickets can be found at: claphamgrand.comKeep an eye on our socials for guest announcements:TWITTER - @drunkwomenpodINSTA - @drunkwomensolvingcrime  Hosted on Acast.

107 Jackie Adedeji & The Hottest Heister In Town

It's time for another hit of drunken true crime solving, and joining in the pie-eyed sleuthing this week is podcaster, journalist & presenter Jackie Adedeji!Before digging into this week's case, Jackie reveals that thanks to a momentary lapse in concentration, someone out there could be running around with her identity! But as this episode proves, there is only ONE Jackie Adedeji with the detective skills to navigate the twists and turns of a complicated heist...and decide which kind of food / drink combo goes best with such an occasion.We then get to hear about a listener crime which has SO many layers it could be the basis of an Agatha Christie novel ....

106 Joanne McNally's Guide To A Great Ab.

The Drunk Women are back with another set of mysterious circumstances to sift through, this week they are aided and abetted by the hilarious comedian and writer Joanne McNally. Joanne reaccounts a crime which will chime with many of your lock-down experiences and is also a lesson in reading the reviews ... if only for comedy value. The gang then circumnavigate their way through the twists and turns of a confidence trickster - who obviously had the stuff in abundance! Then, we hear from a listener, who perhaps just needs their sense of direction testing, rather than a crime solving? AND, some big news about an upcoming LIVE show is about to be announced - so make sure you keep an eye on our Twitter: @drunkwomenpod and Insta: drunkwomensolvingcrime for details coming soon!  Hosted on Acast.

105 Athena Kugblenu's got The Benz

The Drunk Women are here again, solving crime and drinking wine so you don't have to ... although who wouldn't want to do those things? Well, this week's guest Athena Kugblenu was certainly keen to get involved and crack a case which is a joy-ride from start-to-finish, and comes courtesy of cherished listeners Becky and Tom in Paris. Athena herself has an interesting crime theme running through her life, which you could argue is somewhat self inflicted - although also a good argument for avoiding the gym, if you didn't need one already. And, as ever we round things-off nicely with a crime sent in by a listener, which is the epitome of a frosty reception.  Hosted on Acast.

104 Christina Martin & The Prison Dash

This week's episode was recorded during a heatwave in the UK (for those of you overseas, yes they DO sometimes occur), so the crime isn't the only cold case the gang crack open for our listening pleasure. Although this week's guest detective, writer Christina Martin, snubbed a cold beer from the fridge in favour of a beverage which couldn't be less suited to sticky temperatures - how did that work out? You'll have to listen to find out.Christina kicks things off for us with the story of a car, which can only be described as cursed, and then our team look at an audacious prison break and how it could compare with a trip to Dunelm furniture store ... there may be more similarities than you realise.In this week's listener quiz, the team crack a crime which really takes the biscuit... delicious.

103 Aggie MacKenzie & The Naughty Boy

How solved is your crime? Well, thanks to former MI6 employee / journalist / cleaning guru, Aggie MacKenzie, today's story gets a thorough rinsing. Yes, many of you will be familiar with Aggie for her TV show, 'How Clean Is Your House?', but were you aware that she spent some time working for the secret service? Listen to the episode to find out more about that AND our guest's crimes, which just go to show that some criminal situations could have only happened in the 1960s. The team then dig in to some of the lesser known pursuits of one of history's 'naughty boys', who may have wanted to get himself checked out at the sexual health clinic. We then round things off with a listener tale in which the perpetrator certainly had his chips!

102 Making Crime Sexy, With Arielle Souma

The gang are back with another historical case to solve, and helping everyone achieve that goal is comedian, writer & MC, Arielle Souma!Arielle not only brings some handy historical knowledge to proceedings, but also, single-handedly, makes true crime sexy ... FINALLY!We start by hearing about the time our guest was left in a tight spot on holiday, which resulted in a confusing turn of events and a thrilling car ride, before then moving on to hear about a case which is not only a fascinating lesson in royal history, but also one in how inept some potential perpetrators can be.We then hear from cherished Australian listener Vanessa who was framed by someone in her own family for something she didn't do and it looks like detective Souma gets to the bottom of that one too.

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.

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!   Hosted on Acast.

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!  Hosted on Acast.

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 Hosted on Acast.

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?  Hosted on Acast.

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.  Hosted on Acast.

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.

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 Hosted on Acast.

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!  Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more 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?   Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

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.   Hosted on Acast.

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.

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 Hosted on Acast.

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!  Hosted on Acast.

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!

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.

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 Hosted on Acast.

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!

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 Hosted on Acast.

46 Jo Middleton, Cuthbert & A Lesson In Metric vs Imperial

Fabulous blogger, Jo Middleton - otherwise known as 'Slummy Single Mummy' came armed with a thirst for gin and an inquiring mind as she helps the Drunk Women get to the bottom of a war time spy story, in which one of the characters gives a rather wooden performance.We also hear that Jo - despite her efforts - has, thankfully avoided most crimes, but is however the continual victim of a very 21st century phenomenon. And this week's listener crime had a very colourful perpetrator.Read Jo's hilarious blog here: slummysinglemummy.comAnd come and see the Drunk Women at this years Edinburgh Fringe (2019), get tickets here: drunkwomensolvingcrime.com and why not go to the online shop and grab a t-shirt whilst you're there!

39 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE - With Shappi Khorsandi

This live episode sees guest Shappi Khorsandi break a personal booze-ban in spectacular style and reveal the time she fell victim to a trickster, but that didn't stop her giving him a cuddle (and no, she didn't drive home after this show). Our host Hannah delivers a fantastic true crime which involves some pretty audacious cover-ups and a dash of plutonium - whilst it's clear that she's had more than a dash of Prosecco when she rebels against time itself and goes on to commit a crime against a member of the audience.  A raucous and thrilling time was had by all and you get to live it here without the hangover - enjoy! If you want to come and get involved in some live show hysterics, then go to  drunkwomensolvingcrime.com for our London, Ventnor Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe shows, plus the online shop for MERCH!  Hosted on Acast.

38 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE - with Tiff Stevenson

All hell broke loose when the Drunk Women were given chairs on wheels for this performance and now they're going to want them EVERYWHERE they go. The guest, comedian/actor Tiff Stevenson, shared a plethora of crime-ridden encounters which illustrate that either Tiff or her mum should accompany ALL women home on the tube.This week's crime was a mystery that only 4 women drinking Prosecco could possibly stand a chance of solving; as the crew get to the bottom of a case of a woman who enthralled a whole community with her 'strange' behaviours. And the audience crime is pretty spooky and would prompt most people to move out of their home, rather than carry out their own scientific experiments.... with their tongue. As always, huge fun was had by all and to come along to a live show yourself either at The Pleasance in London, or Edinburgh 2019, then go to drunkwomensolvingcrime.comwhere you can find dates and links to buy tickets AND you can now buy merch in the online shop.  Hosted on Acast.

The Drunk Women and this week's guest on the force, comedian and all-round good egg Jen Brister, pretty much crack a case which has been stumping authorities around the world for the last 70 years! They should have just asked a woman in the first place.This case blows open some epic cold war conspiracy theories and proves that nothing good can happen to a ginger on a beach.Jen's own crime isn't for the fainthearted and is quite frankly straight out of a horror film, while the listener crime exposes Catie's bucket list to public ridicule.

In the only episode so far where a mid -record booze run was required, our hosts and their guest - star of Harry Potter & Game of Thrones, Natalia Tena - are brilliantly on-brand and manage to solve a crime, even though none of them could remember doing so the next day. They manage to crack the case of perhaps the stupidest (that IS a word) crime duo in history, who also manage to turn stomachs with some infantile pet names for each other.... that and the murderous tendencies. Also guest Natalia shows that this ain't her first crime-solving rodeo and has in fact been in hot pursuit of a perpetrator who stole her phone, engaging help from passers-by.This may surprise you to know that this was the first record of the evening ....

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!

What happens when a comedy legend downs a few proseccos and wanders on stage at the Pleasance Theatre? They solve a crime of course! This week's fourth Drunk Woman is the one and only Helen Lederer! Helen proved to be the kind of detective who cuts to the chase and gets to the crux of the matter, which was especially useful when getting to the bottom of her own true crime.The pissed-up detectives then crack the case of a woman who elevated her impoverished routes by playing on female insecurities and selling 'miracle' products to the desperate.... thank goodness that could never happen in the 21st century.And an audience member tells the most horrific listener crime yet .... it happened whilst CAMPING....

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...

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.

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 Hosted on Acast.

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!  Hosted on Acast.

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!

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 Hosted on Acast.
