In their season finale episode, the girls do their best to bring closure to all the horrific tales they’ve told you over the last 21 episodes. Halley does a “where are they now?” for all the stories she could find final updates on, Karah finished The Disappearance of Maura Murray so you don’t have to and provides a pod rec to hold you over during their hibernation!
In the spirit of Halloween, this week Halley and Karah willfully suspend disbelief and delve into terrible fears, ghostly encounters, and Karah’s dabblings in telekinesis. PLUS, the girls are mega-excited to feature their very first special guests sharing creepy stories from their childhoods, extra-sensory powers, and haunted houses.
It seems the doers of hideous-but-interesting crimes were all on vacation this week, leaving the girls with little new depravity to report. Instead, Halley brings you a couple updates on previously discussed criminals and tells you a tale of a Houston serial killer from the ’80’s-90’s and how the Governor brought him back to the headlines this week, followed by the girls trading their recs for all true-crimey things to read, listen, and watch.
This week, Karah forgets her own birthday and skips out on buying herself a cake, followed by a few quick updates on Natalee, Kenneka, and the murder trial that will not die. Halley spends a minute on a senseless tragedy too close to home, Karah submerges us in the missing-turned-murder case of journalist Kim Wall, and Halley spouts census facts as she tries to determine why women keep disappearing from Lumberton, North Carolina. Oh, and SPOILER ALERT: the girls give their unbridled opinions on the latest pod-sensation, Dirty John, and it’s merry band of idiots.
In the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy (which the girls address — briefly, solemnly, and matter-of-factly), Halley and Karah decided to steer clear of the ultra-horrific this week, focusing on the crime-adjacent: an eye-witness account of a Tulsa takedown, Colorado Springs still needs to take care of its shit, and the Juice is loose — but nobody wants him.
Welcome to the “live-ish” episode! Life got in the way of the normal recording schedule, and left the girls with no time to edit, so they busted out a stopwatch and did their best to stay on track for an hour. Halley brings you updates on Kenneka Jenkins, the Mad Pooper of Colorado, a 27-year-old cold case, and the sentencing of Jason Lowe, and Karah reports from the rabbit hole that is the Maura Murray disappearance.
This week is sidebar city — including a comically macabre detour, where Karah writes her own unconventional epitaph and Halley plans her own extravagant funeral — but the girls do discuss some true crimes, and of the most bizarre variety: the Mad Pooper of Colorado, a Dad-prank that went terrifyingly wrong, and the sad, strange death of Kenneka Jenkins.

This week, the girls flip the script — Karah takes over On the Docket with tales of cults and Katanas and the tragic case of Holly Bobo, and Halley struggles to calm her voice (and blood pressure) as she goes full Nancy Grace on the recent arrest of fellow Amarillo native, Katie Layne Quackenbush.
This week the girls delve deep into semi-repressed memories of their teen years. Karah covers a case of a wife-killer with a head cold, and Halley gives a surprising and sad final update on the Kaytlynn Cargill disappearance. Finally the girls get spoilery on The Sinner– that mask tho!
Lewd, crude, and a little fast food! Halley and Karah are skipping the studio this week, so they’ve compiled another best of/worst of minisode chocked full of strange and silly.
