Unravelling the mysteries behind classic detective stories
||Clean2. Crippen||This real life murder mystery has everything: a body hidden in the cellar, adultery, cross dressing, and a pleasingly ambiguous ending. It was referenced more than any other by the detective writers of the golden age. This is the story of Dr Crippen.||15 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Really enjoyed the first episode, particularly the Lord Wimsey shout-out.
Brilliant, an absolute treat
Such a clever idea for a podcast, can’t wait for more!
Interesting and thoughtful show
I love the concept. Even if you haven’t read the books - I hadn’t read any of the ones referenced in the first episode - Caroline summarises and explains them so that you can still get into and enjoy the discussion (and then want to add them to your growing stack of books-to-read).
