True Crime & Red Wine

True Crime & Red Wine

By Britain & Leslie

We're two best friends who are probably a little too obsessed with true crime and are here to share with you what we do best- having drinky drinks, red wine to be precise, while digging into our latest crime story discoveries. Come have a glass and stay for outlandish stories, mysteries, murder, and my personal favorite, absurd amounts of us laughing at our own jokes.

Ep 17- Elisa Lam & Brandon Bernard
Ep 17- Elisa Lam & Brandon Bernard
OMG we’re back after a whole freaking six weeks away. Yeah- that’s almost forever in the True Crime world. I mean, technically 48 hours is the golden window, so six weeks probably had you in a panic! Today we’re covering some eerie surveillance footage of a missing woman, Elisa Lam, and the sad coverage of a recent event in Indiana of a death row inmate, Brandon Bernard. We’re down to the minute on that coverage so it was a wild ride! So, as always, sit back with a glad of cab, grab some snacks and put your pods in your ear holes. It’s crime time, bitches. Love, Britain & Leslie

Ep 16- The Big Bad Wolf & Madame Lalaurie
Happy Halloweeeeeeeen! We've been talking it up and here it is- the Halloween episode, and we outdid ourselves with the gore and the Ick. Trigger warnings galore and just a warning to grab an extra bottle of the red- you're TOTES going to need it. So, go get your bucket of candy that you intended for the children this weekend and pour a bunch of red wine in a cauldron and let's get to it!  Love,  Britain & Leslie

But On a Serious Note (the minisode) #3- San Antonio Serial Killer?
The weekend was here and then it was gone, but we've still got a whole spooky week to look forward to! This weekend we're chatting about four strange and unfortunate deaths in the San Antonio area that are suspiciously similar, yet no connections have been made.... oooooh I don't like that. Do we have a serial killer on our hands, Texas? Get our your magnifying glasses and your big ass thermos of coffee (of mimosas) and let's get this case figured out, TCRW sleuths! Love, Britain &  Leslie

But On a Serious Note (the minisode) #2- Galveston Attempted Abductions
Happy "But On A Serious Note" Saturday, TCRW Sleuths. So, this guy is running around our beloved Galveston trying to scoop women up and we aren't letting him get away with it.  Listen to the episode for the deets about his attempted abductions, things you can do to stay safe, and check out our IG for a digital composite of him and a pic of his kidnapper car. Okay team, keep those gorgeous eyes of yours open when you're out and about and keep the coffee full to the brim.   Remember, we know you're tough and hott and can kick total ass, but let the authorities handle apprehending the guy- call your local authorities and laugh as he's drug away. :)  Okay, off for mimosas- Cheers!  Love, Britain & Leslie

Ep 13- The Weepy Voiced Killer & Chikatilo part 2
oooohhh weeeeee this week had our panties in a wad by the end. Can we just quit with the creeping and killing and being total psychos, everyone?

It's like nails on a chalkboard!!!!  October is full of spooky weirdos, so pour the witches brew and let's get to it!  Love, Britain & Leslie

It's the minisode guys- we're calling her "But on a Serious Note"! Here we cover recent events like disappearances, missing persons, cray cray cases that are local and unsolved, etc with the hopes that our TCRW fam can pull out their magnifying glasses and pipes with cherry tobacco and little sleuth gear and get these things solved! Today we talk about Mackenzie Layne missing in Florida- last known location was in the wetlands where her phone was discovered. Listen in for the deets and let's get to it!

Ep 12- The Butcher Baker & Andrei Chikatilo
How we do it, I'll never know- We both picked awful serial killers this week and I feel like I need a week off of work and a bottle of Malbec after it was all said and done. Girl, someone hold me and rock me....I'm Shook.  I feel like Stephan from SNL when I say "This episode has it all...Bakers, airplanes, Russians, secret trophy keeping, a firing squad..."  Go grab the fermented grapes in a bottle and maybe some sweet treats to balance out the bitter episode.  See you there, TCRW weirdos. Love, Britain & Leslie

Ep 11- Jodi Arias & Oscar Pistorius
This week is shady as hell guys. We're facing up with a sweet faced beauty with a nasty side and a man loved by his country for his unbelievable talent...which isn't acting or lying by the way.  How many times did we roll our eyes at these two this week? It's more times than how many grapes went into our bottle of Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon. I can tell you that much!  Grab the chips and salsa, the wine, and a friend to listen with and let's get to it!  Love, Britain & Leslie

Ep 9- Jack the Ripper Unmasked & The Yuba County Five
Yeah, you read that right... get your big girl panties on because Leslie is covering the notorious (and honestly gross and full of himself) Jack the Ripper while I dive into some really weird happenings in the middle of nowhere  where we're left scratching our heads about the series of events and the turnout of the case. Uuuhhhh I'm shuddering thinking about them both. Goosies! Alright, raid the pantry, grab the snacks and a new bottle of Antigal 2018 Uno Malbec and plop that cute little butt in the bed...it's story time. Oh, one more suggestion- make sure the snack aren't meat based. Don't say we didn't warn you.  Love, Britain and Leslie

We're back at it with that ding a ling Robert Durst today to talk about his court hearings and some surprises about other crimes he's linked to toward the end...What? There are more crimes? Yeah. I didn't know either, girl. Drink up.  He's a grade A scumbag. And then Leslie has brings the gore with none other than the American Frankenstein himself, HH Holmes. Yeah... If there were a person that were pictured near "psycho" in the dictionary it would totes be him. **Alexa- Order wine from HEB and do the fast delivery thingy...we're gonna need more than we've got!** Love & Murdery Things, Britain & Leslie

Ep 7- Carolyn Wilson and Robert Durst
Ep 7- Carolyn Wilson and Robert Durst
#theworstbestpair celebrate our three year best friendship anniversary and tell you how that douche Hurricane Harvey actually birthed something beautiful. Then we share some real class act murderers...Ya'll, these murderers gave some Broadway acts for the books. Basically it's a barefoot criminal and a flat chested mute woman walk into a bar joke. And you know those jokes always end with an eyeroll... Grab the 2014 Bogle Petite Sirah, your Hurricane Laura snacks (no we did not learn our lesson with Hurricane Harvey snacks), put on your elastic band sweat pants and take off that underwire bra. No one is looking and you are a magical unicorn of a human. A weird murder story loving drunk magical unicorn with a cosmic brownie hanging out of its mouth.  Love, Britain & Leslie

Ep 6- German Hannibal Lector and The Lipstick Killer
Yep, you read that right...Hannibal, but in Germany and he's feeling like bratwurst. And as for the Lipstick Killer- this is anything but a starlet makeup tutorial.... get your silky pajamas on, grab that Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir (our wine for the night) and I'd recommend not snacking during this episode. You'll understand why soon! Cheers!

Did you read the title to this episode? Did it make you pee a little? I did....  So yep, no surprises here this week. We take a trip to the paranormal side and then get into some weird and totally messed up murders. Listen, guys- You're probably going to need EXTRA wine to help you doze off after Leslie's story tonight, so go ahead and open up one bottle and have a backup on the nightstand just in case. Get tucked in reeeaaallll tight where only your eyeballs are peeking out and let's get to it.... Cheers!
