Nothing Rhymes with Murder is one of the first women-run podcasts I ever listened to, well before I ever had a podcast of my own. Kate and Georgie are so absolutely charming, intelligent, well spoken, funny and quirky. Their podcast takes you to a different country every episode where they explore both notorious and lesser known crimes. Each episode is topped up with Hot Spots! Places worth knowing or visiting if you get the chance to visit the featured country, that is if you’re not too creeped out by the various murders.
Every episode is about 40m to just over an hour, with some spanning almost 2 hours. Perfect for getting through a work day, or like me, laying out in the sun and listening just to relax and enjoy some down time. There are already 40 episodes to choose from, and these ladies show no sign of slowing down! Or stopping, ever, please never stop podcasting!
Their podcast is quite candid and relaxed, though still follows a steady structure. First, you get to catch up with the ladies and what they’ve been up to, and then you dive into some seriously spooky stuff.
I’d recommend listening to the latest episodes and working backwards so you can keep up to date, or finding your country and listening in! If you can’t choose? Episode 10 – THE WORLD covers just about everything from everywhere and features some wicked guests! If you’re a fellow Aussie, you’ll want to check out Episode 6 – Australia: The Backpacker Killer & The Case of Katherine Knight. Both crimes are absolutely brutal, so be cautious!
If you want to get in touch with Georgie and Kate, they’re generally quite active on Twitter, very approachable and above that, kind and generous with their time.
And before I go, I think it’s absolutely necessary to mention that these STRONG, BEAUTIFUL, BAD-ASS WOMEN also recently organise a raffle to support the End the Backlog movement. Hell yes!
So, if you enjoy a mix of candid chatter and true crime, be sure check them out!
