5.5 | Slasher, Alafair Burke, and “Crime” or “Murder”?

Oh dang! Lee and Eddie are back with an all new episode full of banter, foolishness, and absolute hijinks! Eddie’s been binge watching Netflix so long they can’t remember what year it is, and Lee has been scouring the earth for the quality Crime fiction this world needs to hear about!

All this, and more in the latest episode of Crime Time Podcast!

5.3 | C.J. Tudor, Kathy Reichs, & IT Chapter Two

Hoo boy! Eddie has been waiting to watch the IT Part Two trailer just for you guys! Will IT live up to the hype? Will IT be too scary for Eddie to survive? Hard to say, you’d better tune in! And while you’re here we’ve got some great recommendations for your bookshelves! Lee’s keeping that contemporary feel coming with CJ Tudor’s amazing debut, The Chalk Man. Is it a biography of Eddie’s secret undercover life as Banksy? Probably not!

Meanwhile, Eddie wants to start a fight on the internet, because let’s face it, the internet? Wayyyyyy to civil and full of friendly discussion! That’s right, Eddie loves trash, and will do anything for that love–except diss Patricia Cornwell! It’s on!

Oh dang! Guess who it is now (still Lee and Eddie)! We’re back, and never stopping not stopping! This episode we discuss Jordan Peele’s new horrific masterpiece: US, Michelle Dicinoski’s surprisingly non-spooky Ghost Wife, and Stephen King (as Bachman) is back(man)!

4.10 | Episode 99: A 2018 Crime Podyssey

Well a happy new year to all of our lovely listeners! Welcome to part one of a spectacularly exciting 2018 retrospective!

Join Lee and Eddie as they shoot the shit and take a look back at the year(s) that was!

Then chuck on over to part two, so the dang party goes all night!

4.9 | Richard Bachman, Stephen King, & Alexandre Dumas

Oh dang! Stephen King has a secret clone locked in a dairy farm’s basement! Will Lee uncover the truth in time? Will Eddie pen a critically acclaimed screenplay starring Amanda Bynes? Hard to say.

Eddie is moving forward in time, and we leave the 18th century for the much more recent 19th with Alexandre Dumas’ Count of Monte Christo!

4.8 | Ann Radcliffe, Samantha Hayes, & Halloween

Oh Dang! That Eddie is still on this darn Gothic kick! When will they stop? Never. When will Lee stop complaining about it? Also never.

If the Gothic’s weird obsession with Italy has got you down, don’t worry! Lee has a book about everyone’s favourite type of event: A Reunion! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Then our two intrepid hosts are off to the movies, for Halloween, and a bit of a Haunting at Hill House!
