Our Editor's Take

Most podcast listeners wouldn't make a connection between comedy and true crime. Murder mysteries and cults don't tend to be funny, after all. But on the RedHanded podcast, Hannah Maguire and Suruthi Bala combine scares with fun. The show covers true crime as well as supernatural stories.

The hosts of the podcast bring their fun personalities to these sad topics. Without taking commentary to a disrespectful place, RedHanded uses a lighthearted approach. The banter between Hannah and Suruthi adds an empathetic tone to the show. The two even put on live shows, which also are released as episodes.

On the podcast, the hosts discuss a wide range of macabre true stories. This horror and true crime podcast looks at some of the best-known murder trials, like Scott Peterson's. Other topics will be new to most listeners but still as interesting. Whatever strange tale Hannah and Suruthi discuss, listeners are in for spooky fun. They also talk about supernatural stories involving witches and haunted forests.

Instead of a bland retelling of a true story, RedHanded delivers a witty commentary. Despite the hosts' fun on the show, they come to each episode with plenty of research. Hannah and Suruthi offer their opinions on court rulings and questionable laws. The show may challenge listeners' opinions on popular cases.

Despite their well-researched and educated views, the hosts are still fun and accessible. Fans enjoy how it challenges public opinions about victims being weak. The hosts explore the human factors that lead people to horrible actions. As Hannah and Suruthi report on each case, they share the context and details.

Hannah and Suruthi provide an intelligent and accurate analysis of each case. Their rapport adds an element of humor to the topics. Anyone looking for a new podcast should consider RedHanded. This show is great for any listener fascinated by the supernatural or true crime.
