    The Somerton Man case is one that has confounded Australia for almost 75 years now. It all started when an unidentifiable man was found dead on Somerton Beach. The man had no wallet, no form of ID, there was no name written inside of his clothing as would have been typical for the time. And it seemed like all of this was on purpose. Things in the case only got stranger when a tiny rolled up piece of paper was found in a hidden fob pocket in the man's jacket. The words on the paper read “Tamam Shud” and were later determined to have been ripped out of a book of poetry written in the 11th century: The Rubaiyat. In part one we’ll dip our toes into the mystery and in part two Ash will be taking everyone to the deep end of the pool for a serious dive into who the heck this man could possibly be and what the heck happened to him.

    In part two of the Horrific Murder of Katy Hawelka we pick right back up where we left off with Brian McCarthy, a complete and utter waste of space, sitting at the police department wasting everyone’s time with made up stories about what happened the night Katy was attacked. Luckily by the end of his interrogation Brian was arrested and confessed. The rest of the episode covers the incredible determination Katy’s family had throughout the legal process and a glimpse into exactly why they should not have to suffer through parole hearings for this monster every two years.

    If you feel so inclined after listening to the episode, which we hope you do, please sign this petition to deny Brian McCarthy’s parole. SIGN HERE

I'm ruined

I'm ruined for almost all other true crime podcasts. I have been a true crime junkie since I was a kid watching 48 hrs with my mom. I love how Ash & Alaina can be so informative, tactful/sensitive towards victims and also fuggin hilarious. I'm obsessed and tell everyone who will listen to check them out.

Amazing Podcast

My favorite podcast to listen to! The two ladies that run this podcast do a fantastic job in providing the information in a way that doesn't make your stomach turn. They do warn you if something horrible is coming up in case you would prefer to skip, which I also appreciate. I saw them in person when they did some tours last years. Worth the money.

Good true crime podcast!

I listen to a lot of true crime, and these two women are very fun to listen to (as fun as true crime can be, anyway). Recommend giving it a try.

For real weirdos... VERY RECOMMENDED!

I'm binging this podcast for a long time and I'm always waiting for the newest episodes. Alaina and Ash are amazing storytellers, their topics are morbid, truly, but they are able to make a light-hearted show with their personalities that's super enjoyable but still scary. I love their care for details and researching, their respect for the victims and focus on their lives, but they also go discuss about the psychology behind crimes. listening to their show always makes me feel like I'm chatting with my friends discussing crimes – except for the fact that my friends are not into true crime.

Best true crime podcast

This is my favorite true crime podcast. Alaina and Ash provide the perfect amount of banter while still telling the story, unlike some other podcasts where it is all story and no banter. These two have great chemistry and the pace of the podcast is perfect. They also choose very interesting topics and are very knowledgeable.

Obnoxious

The story are interesting but these women are very obnoxious and annoying and I just wish they would have someone else do these. They honestly ruin it for the whole podcast and you at least 70 percent of them talking is completely unrelated to the story and it’s just them talking about their irrelevant opinions and ideas/stories.

Disappointing

It's like two immature girls who are super annoying. One just repetitively echos the other one and they aren't funny. Story sounded like it would have been good if there hadn't been so much added valley girl commentary.

Not For Me

The title was catchy and I was eager to listen, that is until I hit the play button! In the first seven minutes all I heard was idle chatter interspersed with foul language and barely a mention of the story supposedly covered in this podcast. I have no idea if the story was ever covered because I found the presentation intolerable and shut it off. Very disappointing!

Enjoyable, emotional gentle informal touch.

Very lovely presenters, case discussion is alluring. However, the word 'Like' is used alot.

Good listen

After a rocky start with this series I skipped forward several episodes and had a listen to this episode. Much much better. Great info and enjoyable listen.

Just like hanging out with friends!

Have been listening on Spotify and just switched over to audible to listen. This would have to be my favourite true crime podcast. The girls are awesome, and their banter is easy and funny to listen to. Their episodes are well planned and researched. They make you feel a little less weird for being into this stuff!!!
Love them!
