Lia and Shel are good friends with an obsession for True Crime. With that being said, what better way to gush about crimes without raising eyebrows around us than to start a podcast on crimes committed in our home state, Michigan. From mysterious missing cases to gruesome murders that left police struggling to stay on the scene, we're giving you the complete inside on what’s going on in our mitten state. If you need to satisfy your hunger for true crime cases as much as we do, tune in every Wednesday for your weekly dose of mitten crimes.
It all started for me when I was about 5 years old. I started with TV crime and Law and Order: SVU was and still to this day my favorite show. I remember weekends in front of the TV trying to solve the cases before the characters did. Younger Shel really wanted to become a detective, or even a lawyer someday. In high school, I really dove into true crime. In my spare time I watched Crime Watch Daily, First 48, Dateline, and Snapped. But I wanted to dig deeper. By my junior year of high school, I started watching documentaries on infamous serial killers like Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, and more; It drove my parents crazy, but they thought it was something I’d grow out of. Although I didn’t become a detective or a lawyer and instead went into working with kids, I still enjoy True Crime. After binging hours of crime podcasts, I wanted to do my own show, but I didn’t want to do it alone. I admit when Lia said she also wanted to do a True Crime podcast, it was like she read my mind and the timing was perfect. I really couldn’t imagine doing this with anyone else. In this show, I hope what we talk about sheds light on cases that may have gone cold. I believe no matter how much time goes by, everyone deserves justice.
Just like Shelby, and obviously you guys, I too, have a true crime obsession. It started when I was a kid, getting my hair braided on Saturday evenings while watching all the Lifetime movies, Dateline, America's Most Wanted, 48 Hours, just to name a few that I couldn't wait to watch with my mom. Over the past few years, I went from obsessing over the TV shows to podcasts. Leading me to wanting to start my own, but I definitely didn't want to start alone. At our monthly catch up brunch, Shelby suggested starting one and I jumped on board. When I'm not obsessing over the scary stuff, I'm crafting, baking, or holding someone's baby.
