I like to listen to podcasts when I am in the car. I have turned into an old lady and most music just sounds like noise to me.. What happened to the music of the good ole days? On our way to school, we frequently listen to a couple of different news podcasts or story podcasts for little kids.
In my current position, I run from building-to-building teaching classes and putting out fires. In the evening, I drive to the city to learn all the new and exciting research in the areas of Assistive Technology and Multiple Disabilities. I manage to put dinner on the table every evening and I get the grocery shopping done every week. I don’t get much time to myself unless you count taking a shower…and even then a toddler sometimes manages to climb in. Lord knows I don’t get to go to the bathroom alone.
So how does a working mom wind down at the end of the day? On my way home from classes, I am in the car all by myself. I listen to My Favorite Murder podcast, of course.
I mean, there’s nothing more relaxing than murder, right? I know that many people may find this weird. But I am strangely fascinated by this topic. The more I mention this podcast, the more that I find I am not the only one. There is a cult following of this kind of sh!t. Who knows why. Certainly not me. And this particular podcast is hysterical. I know that murder and comedy don’t frequently go together but trust on on this. It just works. I am about 25 episodes in. At least in the beginning, it is easy to hear that Karen and Georgia are just two friends talking about a common interest they aren’t exactly professionals yet. They are still learning the lay of the land which is why it is that much more funny!
So this evening while the rest of you are binge watching something on Netflix, I will be cruising down the Stevenson exhausted by yet another 5:00 am to 10:00 pm day just listening to a couple of ladies talk about serial killers. NBD.
Remember. Stay sexy and don’t get murdered

I’m totally with you on this. I LOVE a good murder mystery! (Also, with you on the “don’t get to go to the bathroom alone.”) Thanks for posting the sweet video.
Oh my goodness! LOVE! I haven’t listened to this podcast, but now I definitely want to try it out. WHen I was on maternity I really got into some murder shows and documentaries and my husband was like, “Why do you get so obsessed with this stuff?” I have no idea but your post cracked me up today!
Yes!! I have this podcast downloaded on my phone because so many people have recommended it to me- but I havent listened to one yet. And now with a new babe, I can’t imagine I will anytime soon, but I want to!!
And that video of the little fingers under the bathroom door! Priceless! My husband and I always joke about when this will be us…. Our time will come soon lol
Oh man. Sooner than you think. I listen mostly in the car. Do it now while Charlie is young enough not to understand. 😂
hahahaha! good tip and so true!
I’ll have to check these out! I listen to books when I commute to/from work. I recently found the author Ann Rule who was a police officer turned author. She writes about true crime. Her books are awesome.
Yes! They talk about her a lot!
