5.15 | Shalini Boland, Star Wars, & Book Judgements

Shablam, they’re back at it again!  This week Lee devours Shalini Boland’s The Other Daughter, Eddie may or may not have snuck into Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and they both judge whether it’s good or bad to judge others on their book choices.

5.14 | Terminator Dark Fate, Lesley Kara, & Criminal Gifts

Christmas is upon on Crime Time Listeners! Tune in for Eddie’s long-awaited take on Terminator Dark Fate (spoiler alert – they loved it!). Lee reviews The Sunday Times Bestseller The Rumour by Lesley Kara. Love small-town gossip, social media, and murder? This one’s for you. And worry not dear listeners, we have you covered for Christmas gift ideas… puzzles, Jackie Chan, book sets, and Frank & Co. Readers!

5.12 | Doctor Sleep, Andrew McGahan, & Nicci French

Stephen King, Andrew McGahan, and Nicci French walk into a bar…

Just kidding! We have no punchline for that joke but Eddie & Lee do rave about all three authors in the latest episode of Crime Time Podcast!

Among other things, Lee & Eddie review the film adaptation of Doctor Sleep, The Lying Room by couple writers, Nicci French (did we mention they’re actually a married couple?), and the one and only Andrew McGahan’s The Rich Man’s House!

Your fav podcast hosts also share their deepest subreddit mystery holes, what are yours?

5.11 | C.J. Tudor, Gilly Macmillan, & Christine

Eddie was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, ’til this podcast came along and truly changed the world! Aside from never reading any books and obnoxiously interrupting anyone who has, Eddie’s many talents include: Never letting this Nanny joke go, killing it at karaoke (as in straight up murder for the ears), and just being generally handsome and wonderful. What’s that, you ask? What is the episode about? Oh, just some great books (think Gilly MacMillan & C.J. Tudor) and films (Stephen King’s 80’s masterpiece Christine) … but back to Eddie!

Rohan Wilson

Book Review | Rohan Wilson’s Daughter of Bad Times

What a compelling read. Rohan Wilson’s DAUGHTER OF BAD TIMES from @AllenandUnwin is a dystopian thriller set in a not so distant future where immigration detention centers are serving as manufacturing plants and exploiting free labor. A brutal and unwavering comment on global warming, corruption, and disregard for human life.

5.10 | IT Chapter 2, Haylen Beck, & Bigotry as Baddie

Oh snap! I guess Lee and Eddie are off to the movies again! That’s right, tuck a mini burrito in your jacket pocket, and sneak several fun-sized chocolate bars into your socks cause it’s time for IT: Chapter Two! Eddie finally read a book from this century and felt pretty good about it (and then obviously complained). And the two of them explore the idea of Pennywise as the embodiment of bigotry.

Too deep? Yeah, me too… Pocket burrito anyone?
