Drunk Women Solving Crime

270 MEN'S MONTH: With Christopher Hall

Season 1, Ep. 270
We're smack bang in the middle of Men's Month 2023 and this edition is a walk down memory lane, when our Drunk Women took the show to a sell-out crowd at the Edinburgh Fringe, only for poor Hannah to be struck down by the dreaded Covid and so, was forced to head home.But, in her place we recruited the finest sub detective in all the land in the form of actor, comedian and super sleuth, Ruth Bratt! By this time, Ruth was very at home in her role on the force and it didn't take this week's guest too long to get to grips with the ways of Taylor and Catie either, as comedian Christopher Hall lit up the stage and got stuck right in with the drinking and solving. Chris started off the show by recounting a time of teenaged rebellion which ultimately cost him a career as a clarinettist and proves he probably couldn't make it as a wrestler. The team then solve a crime which proves that murder is more of a crowd pleaser than the royal family, and a ‘mum look’ can scare the bejesus out of the most hardened criminal. We then hear from a member of the audience with a cautionary tale should you be confronted with someone trained in the way of the samurai.

  • 279. 279 DWSC LIVE: With Toby Williams

    46:37
    But, it's not Men's Month, we hear those of you who are listening to this on release in February 2024 cry.... Yes, true, but Toby Williams isn't any old man, he's an actor, writer AND he married and impregnated our very own Hannah George, so it's actually well overdue that we hear from Mr HG himself.And what better occasion for him to grace the stage than when DWSC was live at the Ventnor Fringe, Hannah's home town on the Isle of Wight.As well as Toby confessing some criminal activity that could well see his marriage on the rocks (being 8 years old is NO excuse), the team also delves into a local crime proving that despite its twee image, the Isle of Wight is a hotbed of vice. We finish proceedings by hearing from somebody in the audience about a crime which originates in Taylor's homeland, which distracted her from the urge to climb-up the rigging of the tent at least!  Tickets are now on sale for the DWSC London residency at their NEW VENUE of The Museum of Comedy - full details and tickets for March, April, May and June shows can be found here - Drunk Women Solving Crime - The UK's hit true crime comedy podcastYou can also support the show on Patreon, and for as little as £3 a month, have access to ad free episodes, bonus content, live zoom records AND be the subject of one of Taylor's incredible shout outs - Drunk Women Solving Crime | creating Podcasts | Patreon

The full episode will be available next Wednesday 21st February. In the meantime, why not catch up with the vast back catalogue of DWSC eps, featuring amazing guests like Katherine Ryan, Sara Pascoe, Desiree Burch, Samira Ahmed, Fern Britton, Shazia Mirza, Susie Dent... the list is (almost) endless. The Drunk Women are at The Museum of Comedy in March, April, May and June - so join them at their London residency, book early to avoid disappointment, as it's likely to sell out!

    In today's episode, the gals are joined by the fantastic spy-crime writer, Ava Glass, who is behind the brilliant female lead spy books such as The Traitor, The Chase, and Alias Emma.These stories may (or may not?) have been inspired by her real-life encounters with female agents and the insight she gained while working with them.So, as well as finding out which Drunk Woman would make the best spy, Ava also shared a couple of crime stories from her own real life, one of which is proof of the lack of pockets in women's clothes makes us more vulnerable!The team then picks the bones of a true crime case from history, before hearing from a listener and DEFINITELY not making things worse for them.  We also get Taylor, Hannah and Catie's take on the brilliant new Sky series, True Detective: Night Country. Tickets are now on sale for the DWSC London residency at their NEW VENUE of The Museum of Comedy - full details and tickets for March, April, May and June shows can be found here - Drunk Women Solving Crime - The UK's hit true crime comedy podcastYou can also support the show on Patreon, and for as little as £3 a month, have access to ad free episodes, bonus content, live zoom records AND be the subject of one of Taylor's incredible shout outs - Drunk Women Solving Crime | creating Podcasts | Patreon

    As the Drunk Women continue to ease their way into 2024 with fortnightly releases, the gals think it's only right that we should get a little nugget of what we can expect in next week's episode, and so here's a taste of what happened when writer of female lead spy fiction, Ava Glass popped into the studio to tell Taylor, Hannah and Catie all about the spy who loved her (at least that's what she thought), how not having pockets made her an easy victim, and to help put some flesh on the bones of a case from history. All this and much more will be ready next week, but until then, why not go back through our back catalogue and reacquaint yourselves with some of the other 277 amazing episodes? You can also support the show on Patreon, and for as little as £3 a month, have access to ad free episodes, bonus content, live zoom records AND be the subject of one of Taylor's incredible shout outs - Drunk Women Solving Crime | creating Podcasts | Patreon

    As the team releases episodes fortnightly during January and February of 2024 so our Hannah can have some restful maternity leave (maternity leave IS restful, right?), we thought it only fair to give you all a sneak peak of what happens on next week's show, with the hilarious, Alexandra Haddow, recorded at the final London residency of '23.What was the intel that Hannah received during the interval? Who is Catie singing 'Happy Birthday'' to? And what does Taylor think is 'even better than murder'? Well, there's not long to find out my friends, but until you get to hear this episode in all its glory - why not go back through our back catalogue and reacquaint yourselves with some of the other 276 amazing episodes? You can also support the show on Patreon, and for as little as £3 a month, have access to ad free episodes, bonus content, live zoom records AND be the subject of one of Taylor's incredible shout outs - Drunk Women Solving Crime | creating Podcasts | Patreon

    56:58
    New year, new you? Not for the Drunk Women it's not, they plan to continue exactly how they've been going, as today's episode proves! As you'll hear, it's very much business as usual as comedian and improviser, Alison Thea-Skot joined the ladies on stage during their final residency show of 2023 to tell us about the time Paul Abdul was stolen from her life and help solve a crime from the 1990s that will have you looking at cardboard cut-outs in a whole new light.We continue with the 90s theme for the listener story, as a member of the live audience shared the only crime to have happened in Finland during that decade, which also happened to involve the disappearance of a UK Britpop band. Throughout January and February of 2024, the Drunk Women will be releasing episodes fortnightly, to allow for some well-deserved materiality leave for our Hannah, but don’t worry, weekly episodes recommence at the start of March 2024!  In the meantime, why not go back and remind yourself of some of the other amazing episodes that are already out? AND for as little as £3 a month, you can support them on Patreon and get access to live Zoom recordings, ad free episodes AND be the subject of one of Taylor's amazing shout-outs! Drunk Women Solving Crime | creating Podcasts | Patreon
