Awesome podcast if you're into stories about dumb people making bad life choices. Very conversational, casual and excellent for long drives where you could use a chuckle.

 Mar 5, 2022
A podcast that could be great if it didn't have the two worst storytellers in the history of stories. They keep interrupting each other with bits of nonsense and irrelevant tangents. It's like if an internet recipe blog made a crime podcast


True Crime is more than blood, guts, mayhem, and murder. Zaron Burnett and Elizabeth Dutton share outlandish tales of capers, heists, and cons that shine a light on the absurd and outrageous side of criminality. Always 99% murder-free and 100% ridiculous, this is Ridiculous Crime, a podcast by iHeartRadio.
