In this week’s podcast episode, Becky and Merie discuss some Netflix religious-based crime documentaries, featuring (the what-in-the-actual-fuck , mind-melting) Abducted in Plain Sight and A Murder Among Mormons. Along the way, they address burning questions you didn’t know you had, like:
Should I skip the first 5 minutes if I am really fucking tired of these 2 women talking about losing weight? (hint: YES!) In what way is Merie’s husband like a pimp? And why didn’t she order him to tell someone that she doesn’t order him around? Should you listen to the ladies’ interpretation of the King James Bible? (And, on that note, when was it that Jesus drop the mic?) Who wants first dibs on a “Team White Salamander” t-shirt? How about reverse engineering the story of the Garden of Eden? Why does Merie request that Becky make weird noises with her microphone?
Come for Merie’s universal password. Stay for a salamander finding a Dr. Pepper in the woods.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
