Yeardley Smith and Zibby Allen host this frank, unfiltered true crime podcast with Small Town Detectives and identical twins, Dan and Dave. Dan investigates Violent Crimes. Dave investigates Sex Crimes and Child Abuse. Often peppered with primary resources such as 9-1-1 calls and suspect interrogation recordings, each episode introduces a new crime, and is told by the detectives who investigated it. But Yeardley and Zibby don’t just settle for the who, why, how and where of it all, they also seek to uncover the human side of their guests, offering a glimpse into the raw reality of true crime in Small Town, USA. Names, locations, and certain details have been altered to protect the privacy of the victims and their families.

    Individual true crime stories from the detectives themselves

    Two American women fascinated by true crime, interview two detectives about their most interesting cases. Each episode is an individual story which is really convenient. WARNING- some episodes are very graphic and could be triggering.

    Love, Love, Love

    I LOVE this podcast! It's so real. Some cases are graphic, but you can really feel what the officers felt as they were working the case. The hosts do a wonderful job with their questioning and keep things very interesting. I highly recommend this podcast!

    Absolutely love this podcast!

    I cannot get enough of this podcast! The Dectectives, Dan & Dave, have such poise and presence and are fantastic storytellers. Yeardley & Zibby have great question, observations, reactions, insights & comments. The audio bytes are compelling, the stories, all less-popular and trendy, are jaw-dropping. Told in a way that keeps you on pins and needles the entire time. An intriguing look at criminals from the investigator’s perspective, as well as an insightful look into the lives of the people in law enforcement.

    The full package

    I love the way the detectives tell their stories with all their experience and knowledge included. They are real and captivating. The girls manage to round it all out with the perfect questions and the every day person's insight. I love this podcast and hope they stick around a long time because I'll be here waiting eagerly for each new episode.
