HOMETOWN MURDERS!!!! PART 2!!!! If you’ve listened to the first Hometown Murders episode on David Pike, you’ll know that we did that episode because we discovered that we both had known David Pike, before we even knew each other, and that when he murdered a woman, we both somehow felt like we’d had.a lucky escape, Geordie more than me… Geordie and I both love listening to murder podcasts – she’s into My Favourite Murder and RedHanded, and I listen more to CaseFile, although not around Andreas because he can’t STAND that dude’s voice!!! So we kind of wanted to give it a go ourselves and we thought we’d just do a one-and-done episode on how we both had been friends with a murderer.
But after the episode, Hazel, the psychic real estate agent, got in touch with Geordie about a murder she had a connection that took place on the street where GEORDIE GREW UP and then Jen got in touch with me about the disappearance of a young girl from Big W back in the early 1980s, so that’s how this part 2 of Hometown Murders came about.
Geordie and I are not professional podcasters – does that even exist as a thing? So when we think about what we want to talk about for each episode, we just kind of decide on a topic, do our research/googling and then just ad lib it when we record. We call ourselves a comedy podcast because we just love having a laugh together, but when it comes to murder, and last week’s episode on cancer, it’s hard to have a laugh about such dark subjects… but somehow we find the lighter side in whatever little crack of humour we can find… It’s not intended to be disrespectful in any way – honestly, I don’t know how else we could chat about such subjects, it just comes out that way, and as Geordie said, if you don’t laugh you cry… So we hope you like this latest episode on Hometown Murders and really, our hearts go out to anyone who’s been touched by these sad stories.
