2.21 | Stephen Fry, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, & Literary Background Check

Lee’s been scarred for life by Resident Evil: Biohazard, Eddie’s been scarred for life by hearing about Resident Evil: Biohazard, and here’s hoping you find it at least intriguing, if not entirely face melting. Eddie reviews Stephen Fry’s The Liar, and they both discuss what it means to be contemporary to a work of fiction, or experientially adjacent.

Lee and Eddie have swapped centuries! That’s right, Eddie’s reviewing a book that came out this month, and Lee somehow picked up a book older than their iPhone! What will this strange occurrence mean for the world? Will Eddie stop being such a theory obsessed wanker? (Not today!) Will Lee stop falling asleep whenever Eddie speaks? (Probably not!)

2.18 | Baby Driver, Sue Grafton, & Trash Redux

2.17 | Rachel Abbott, John Wyndham, & Creatures from the Deep

Lee gets acquainted with DCI Tom Douglas (out of order, as usual!), Eddie reviews a book published half a century ago (can she get any more insufferable? Spoiler warning: yes), and they are both reminded that the ocean is a terrifying place! Does Lee personally know the Loch Ness Monster? Is Eddie best friends with James Cameron? Do they have submarine parties with Jules Verne? Find out (maybe) in this very excellent episode of Crime Time Podcast!

2.16 | Cleverman, Andrew Pyper, & Crypto-conundrum

Lee finds it hard to suspend disbelief with Andrew Pyper’s latest work, Eddie is absolutely blown away by Ryan Griffen’s Cleverman, and they both try to solve the mystery plaguing the internet.

2.15 | PD James, Megan Miranda, & All the Wrong Places?

 

Eddie spent the past week trying (and failing) to figure out PD James’ Death of an Expert Witness, Lee takes a trip down non-linear memory lane with Megan Miranda’s All the Missing Girls, and they try to figure out whether Patricia Corwell’s Kay Scarpetta and Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone just have really bad luck, or are a bit gung ho for their own good!

2.14 | Stephen King, Trial and Error, & Perilous Pranks

Eddie has the flu! That’s right, Lee is risking life and limb by sitting anywhere near the cloud of germs that is Eddie right now. You could say that Eddie is at the centre of The Dead Zone! Or maybe that’s what Lee’s reading this week… Eddie binge-watched the entirety of Trial & Error, and reckons it’s pretty good! Unless that’s just the fever talking! Lee wants to know how anyone survived the invention of the prank show, and Eddie should probably go cancel that order of bees that she was gonna hide in Lee’s car…

All this and more in a frankly excellent episode of Crime Time Podcast!

2.12 | Oscar Wilde, Wonder Woman, & The Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2

Lee and Eddie are off to the movies this week! In separate cars! To separate cinemas! To see separate films! No big deal. Lee wandered in to see Wonder Woman, and Eddie was caught of guard by the Guardians of the Galaxy! Eddie still won’t stop asking whether or not things are sexy, and Lee’s starting to get both annoyed and concerned. That’s right, Sexy or Scary is back, so let’s get wild! Oscar Wilde, that is! (See what I did there?)
