Yes, that's right, Taylor, Catie and Hannah have gotten drunk at least ONE HUNDRED times (there were a few practice runs), all in the name of solving crime.... well, mostly in the name of solving crime. The gang have had some exemplary company along the way and this week their 100th guest-sleuth is none other than film star, talk show host & documentary maker - Ricki Lake! Ricki shows dedication to the force by indulging in some day-time drinking on account of appearing from a different time zone (as if by magic) and sharing the story of the time she ended up behind bars - who knew?! The team then get down to solving a case about a perp talented at creating some pretty cool pseudonyms, and discover that detective Lake is more than an asset to the force - they don't call her 'One-Take-Lake' for nothing - as you'll find out. So pop a cork and join in with this centenary episode, thanks SO much for being with us for the last one hundred shows, here's to the next one hundred! X  See for privacy and opt-out information.
Hooray, the Drunk Women continue to entertain themselves AND us through these socially distant times by welcoming a guest to help solve a crime, whilst getting responsibly sozzled! In today's episode, the gang are joined by comedian Esther Manito, whose suspicion of children on the crime scene could have been a direct result of her younger years... although we're not sure Oliver Twist would have walked backwards into the cinema... She proves invaluable however in today's main case which seems to play-up to the stereotype of students being big stoners, but probably not in the way YOU'RE thinking. There's also a royal connection and an unearthed mystery which could well reveal itself at the next coronation. Plus: a listener crime which proves a vacuum can be a deadly weapon. Heads-up: Get ready to pop the prosecco with the Drunk Women & VERY special guest next week for their ONE HUNDREDTH episode!    See for privacy and opt-out information.
In this week's episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, the gang dissect (!) the story of someone who wasn't actually breaking any laws at the time, but whose practices would certainly raise a few eyebrows if attempted today .. in more ways than one. It's a gripping tale, but probably not the best accompaniment to a plate of spaghetti - unless you happen to be this week's guest, comedy writer, Christine Robertson - who relished in her role as amature sleuth.  Christine starts proceedings by sharing with us an occasion where she and her whole school class were victim to the same crime, and it may (or may not) confirm a stereotype of the perpetrators of a certain act... or maybe it's just a cry for help?  To get the FULL DWSC experience this week, why not try Christine's own cocktail recipe of alternating between Aperol Spritz & yesterday's prosecco ... don't knock it till you've tried it!   See for privacy and opt-out information.
We all know that crime busting and the medical profession go hand-in-hand, after-all where would Holmes be without his Dr Watson? The cop in Diagnosis Murder wouldn't solve ANYTHING without his dad, Dr Dick Van-Dyke and don't get me STARTED on Quincy! Well, this week's episode of DWSC sees our sloshed sleuths welcome their very own Watson in the form of (non-drunken) Doctor Nidhi Gupta to the force. Nidhi is a film maker and writer and took the unexpected step of returning to front line medicine to work on the Covid 19 wards - contracting the virus herself whilst saving the lives of others. It was during this time that she became victim of perhaps the most cowardly crime EVER committed, as you'll hear for yourself. Our doctor / detective team then go-on to solve a crime which ends-up implicating those at the very top of's a scenario which wouldn't look too out of place today. Talking about history repeating itself, Nidhi also talks about her amazing crowd fund project to make a film about how we can learn from past catastrophes, look here for more info:-  See for privacy and opt-out information.
In this week's episode, the team go stateside for their latest recruit: comedian Fortune Feimster!. Fortune brings some serious insight to a crime which would have lesser detectives well and truly stumped. The gang discuss the different ways a crime can be committed in a plane, how long it's acceptable to hide in the toilets to get a break from your kids, and how many typists is acceptable to have with you whilst travelling.  Fortune shares a crime which most people wouldn't be a victim of after the year 2008, as well as accidentally blowing a listener's alibi wide open. Check out Fortune's Netflix special Sweet and Salty, and find out more about her at  See for privacy and opt-out information.
It's another day in lockdown, but that's not gonna stop The Drunk Women from smashing a case, whilst getting smashed over Zoom.  Joining them this week is bestselling author Jane Fallon, who despite not showing early promise as a reliable witness, certainly went on to prove her sleuthing-smarts, as she provides the kind of observations worthy of someone at the top of the force.  This week's case involves a 'power couple' of crime and although Jane wouldn't notice them actually committing a felony, she'd certainly be able to spot them in a line up.  The team then go on to hear about a listener crime which also displays some pretty stunning (if rather dangerous) crime solving skills!  Who says you can't bring your A-game whilst drinking?   See for privacy and opt-out information.
In today's episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, journalist Jo Elvin brings something to this case that no other guest could.  It's taken many attempts to get Jo on the show and if one of the other occasions had worked-out, this fantastic coincidence would have never come into being; to find out just how she's connected to a bank robbery in 1950s Sydney, you'll have to listen!  Jo also tells us about the time an altercation with a woman who could be The Queen still keeps her awake at night, and the team also solve a listener mystery which proves that there's always an 'evil' twin.   See for privacy and opt-out information.
The virtual fun continues this week, as the team welcome comedian and unreliable witness, Jo Caulfield to help solve a historical crime from the archives. Jo proves she's no stranger to getting justice served to those who do wrong, but she may have inadvertently had Danny DeVito arrested by mistake... But her knowledge of the inner workings of the church prove invaluable in this week's story of self-appointed sainthood and psychopathy... so just a normal day in lock-down for our swigging detectives.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
In today's episode, Catie, Hannah and Taylor welcome a very special detective to the force, who turned up in her dressing gown, notebook in hand and rocked the investigation - it's presenter and author, Fern Britton!  As well as having the grey matter to solve the case and proving time and again that she's a step ahead of the game, she also spills the beans about the time she was duped by tricksters LIVE on TV!  We then get to investigate a crime with a myriad of suspects - all from the same tight-knit family, which also includes some dubious medical advice .... should you be prescribed whisky for a liver complaint? Unless you're taking notes a la Fern, you're not taking this seriously enough!  The gang also make light work of cracking this week's listener crime ...who says alcohol dulls the senses  See for privacy and opt-out information.
In this episode the Drunk Women are joined by comedy writer Tasha Dhanraj, who opens the show with a story of the time where she may, or may not have been's open to interpretation. The gang then get their teeth into a case, which they really manage to flesh-out details such as; how calorific is human 'meat'? Luckily for our hosts though, detective Tasha turned-out to be somewhat of an expert in the subject of cannibalism...should we be afraid? As Taylor points-out, we're going to be afraid of EVERYONE at some point in this case. Bon appétit!   See for privacy and opt-out information.
Just because we're still in lock-down at the time of record, it doesn't mean historical crimes should go unsolved by drunk women! And so Hannah, Catie and Taylor bravely grab a bottle and get started on a crime which encapsulates drugs, alcohol, adultery and a false accusation - seems like a pretty standard evening in to us. Joining them in their quest to get to the bottom of it all (crime AND bottle) is comedian Desiree Burch, who starts things-off by re-accounting the time she encountered a total jerk during rush hour. Then, during the gang's dissection of the main story, several key questions came to the fore...Are the US really king of the armchairs? Is an affair worse than indulging in opium and orgies? And do all roads ultimately lead to Bournemouth?    See for privacy and opt-out information.
In today's episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime, eSports presenter Frankie Ward jumps on the conference call to flex her sleuthing guns. She shares the time she was recipient of a birthday crime; which is bad enough in itself, but you could argue the real crime occurred 6 months later, thanks to an aspiring clown. Speaking of circuses, this week's main crime is a riot of political espionage, assassination and some stunning last words...oh and Catie does a rap, which she can TOTALLY pull off.    See for privacy and opt-out information.
The Drunk Women are back with an epic ride of a story which takes-in a landscape ranging from incompetent intruders, to prohibition, with adventures across land and sea and a debate on whether turning a women upside down and shaking her is less humane if she's of retirement age...I mean it probably is, but we'll let you decide for yourself. Helping to make all of this happen is comedian Laura Lexx who recounts a tale from her youth involving the most time efficient flasher in history!  See for privacy and opt-out information.
This episode of Drunk Women Solving Crime is an education in SO many ways...we find out that Guernsey produces a very, very special type of rum, that almost every adult male who visited Madame Tussaud's during the early 2000s probably has a photo of themselves being inappropriate with the Kylie waxwork, and that this week's guest, the hilarious Lizzie Roper REALLY knows how to enjoy herself in a reclining chair! The gang then dive into a crime from history which inspired one of the greatest fictional sleuths of all time and shows that no good ever came of a trip to the woods... to find out more check out Daniel Smith’s book- And why not join the Drunk Women live for a crime quiz on Instagram on Tuesday May 5th @ 8PM BST? @drunkwomensolvingcrime  See for privacy and opt-out information.
Coming to you straight outta quarantine, our plucky detectives embrace the technology (and drinking alone) enabling us to engage in some sleuthing - lockdown style. Joining them, from the safety of her own home is comedian, writer, actor & improviser, Ruth Bratt! Ruth shares a crime which shows an auspicious start to her career. The gang then look at a crime in which the main perpetrator was perhaps slightly disillusioned with their own talents ...which ultimately leads them down a dishonest path.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
It's the first episode in the 'brave new world' of recording, as the Drunk Women get their tech savvy nieces & nephews to hook them up to some super smart conferencing software, so the gang can continue to solve crimes whilst drinking in the comfort of their own homes.  There are lots of amazing guests booked in over the coming weeks, but the feeling at Drunk Women Towers was to kick this temporary style of recording off with just Catie, Taylor & Hannah, so we can all get used to it together.  This means we get the added treat of hearing from each of our hosts when THEY'VE been the victim of a crime, proving that crimes even happen to top detectives! We then get into a case, which you'd need to get up early in the morning to solve ... dawn to be precise (that will be funny once you've listened to the episode).  As these strange times continue, don't forget to check out the Drunk Women on social media;  You can find them as @drunkwomenpod and on Insta @drunkwomensolvingcrime where they do regular live quizzes! The next one is on Tuesday 21st April at 8pm, so bring a bottle and join-in!   See for privacy and opt-out information.
In the final 'throwback' edition, the Drunk Women were joined by Canadian writer and comic, Monica Heisey. Monica bookends this episode beautifully with two occasions she was the victim of a crime - and she's probably the MOST empathetic 'victim' to have ever featured on the show. The gang then explore the murky world of 'Spring-Heeled Jack' whose baffling method of abusing his victims prompts many an interesting theory from the drunken detectives. We also find out that Hannah's family opt for a rather unorthodox parlour game on Christmas Day... Although the Drunk Women won't be together for a little while, episodes will be continuing and some fantastic guests have agreed to join-in on the drunkest, most crimey video conferencing to occur during the time of self-isolation. Stay safe and see you next week! X  See for privacy and opt-out information.
Hello to all of our socially distancing / self isolating friends! The Drunk Women are still digging-deep into their well of episodes which were recorded whilst drinking in the same room was still a regular occurrence. Joining them (in the flesh) is hilarious, New York based comic Liz Miele, who dropped-in whilst she was over in London, touring her show a few weeks ago. Liz shares a crime, which could only have been committed in the 21st century and will probably make you want to upgrade your computer firewall. The group then prove that you don't need to be a sports -fan (or have ANY sports based knowledge) to be able to solve a crime which shook the world of a particular sporting tournament. ...and there's a surprising hero in the story, who turned out to be a very good boy!  We'll be back with another episode next Wednesday.  In the meantime, we hope everyone out there is safe and well at this very strange time.  All our love, The Drunk Women Xx.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
You may be aware that this episode was recorded in an era when we could all get drunk in the same room, rather than over Skype; so let yourself be transported to the time when writer, director & comedian Charlie Dinkin dropped into Drunk Women Towers to share some booze, solve a crime and sit within two meters of Hannah, Catie & Taylor. Today we hear a story of a robbery taking place ON A PLANE and solve a case involving a murderer who manages to keep a saintly image - despite the fact that anyone close to her comes to a sticky end - and we also find out that 'mouse butter' was a 'thing' back in the day... We then round it all-off with a listener crime involving a fancy car and a drug cartel... standard stuff. As a side-note, thanks to the wonders of technology, episodes will continue to to go ahead from respective isolations once the studio records have all been released... we thought it best not to isolate together, no one's liver would be able to survive that! Sending all of our lovely listeners (and non-listeners) much love and strength at this odd time. The Drunk Women team Xx  See for privacy and opt-out information.
Back in the days when everyone could shake-hands and sit in the same room as each other, lovely actor, podcaster and comedian Margret Caborn-Smith dropped into Drunk Women Towers and told some disturbing tales of 'crime-negging' which have befallen her AND some of her friends. The team then look into a case of plagiarism which implicates one of the pioneering characters of the silver screen, whist along the way, we hear about some strange crushes held by our drunk detectives, including a fictional anthropomorphised car ... The gang then attempt to solve a crime from a listener, who needs help after someone taught their son some rather inappropriate language...  See for privacy and opt-out information.

love the scummies, and this pod, usually -but everyone's too close to the mic most of the time in this ep, so there's distortion a lot of the time which makes difficult listening :(

What ever you do, don’t listen to this episode if you’re doing something that needs your full attention and/or control. I was laughing so much I almost crashed the van I was driving. Drunk Women is always worth a listen but Jess Robinson is incredibly funny, or psychopathic (not quite sure) Keep up the drinking ladies, I’m a big fan.
