Description

Who’s the worst serial killer? Where’s the creepiest cult? What’s the coldest of all cold cases? If you’re a true crime fan, you’ve probably asked yourself some of these questions. Well, Parcast thinks you deserve answers… or at least some passionate opinions. And they’ve enlisted co-hosts Ash Kelley and Alaina Urquhart from the hit podcast Morbid to get to the bottom of things. Welcome to their Parcast original series, Crime Countdown. Every Monday, Ash and Alaina discuss ten unsettling true crime stories centered around a common theme. With the help of the Parcast research gods, they’ll try to shock, surprise, and one-up each other—debating each case and their rankings with a hint of humor to lighten the mood. These best friends may not be experts. And they may not always agree. But… they’re counting down anyway.

yeah, a beautiful fairy tale except for cheating on his wife and there being a power imbalance between him and the common born maid (which of course is why his dad was ticked. Kings didn't marry common women. you needed to marry noble or royal blood to form alliances and keep peace.)

Very superficial look at crimes, cults, etc. The hosts make light of horrific events and people. The chit chat and jokes are annoying. Not worth a 'subscribe' in my opinion.
