274 DWSC LIVE: With Rosie Dempsey

It's part two of the DWSC Flo and Joan special, when we welcome 'Joan' aka Rosie Dempsey to the stage and enable her to get some closure on being the subject of two very different crimes, one of which will make you shake with fear at the thought of visiting the Isle of Wight! The team then solve a case which reads more of a map of Hannah's places of residence than it should do and proves that the written word falling into the wrong hands can be way worse than your WhatsApp messages being made public. Lastly, what better way to wrap-up a lovely evening than hearing about the time an audience member was the victim of criminal activity, although this case is proof that sometimes crime DOES pay!BUT this isn’t all! We take a short 5mins in the middle of the episode to find out what our gals would do if they won the lottery, AND they speak to another podcaster about what they might do with this instant wealth. This has a particular interest for Catie, as that podcaster happens to be her husband, Richard Herring, who may, or may not tell her if his numbers should come up (AWKWARD)! The Drunk Women are returning to their London residency at 21Soho in 2024!

273 DWSC LIVE: With Nicola Dempsey

This episode was released in the darkest days of winter, BUT it was actually recorded back in the heady days of summer when Taylor, Catie and Hannah took to the stage for one of their infamous DWSC residency shows in London, in which they achieved the impossible and split apart comedy double act (and real-life sisters) Flo and Joan - aka Nicola and Rosie Dempsey.You can now hear show one of that night, when Nicola (Flo) joined the ladies on stage to recount the time she stood next to a crime, which involved a celebrity friend and saw first-hand how the police reacted to the famous prey.The team then dive straight into a story which has all the hallmarks of a tale you couldn't make up - and will confirm your lack of even the most basic of survival skills.We then hear from an audience member whose crime story is a hard one for anyone to follow and had a sticky start rather than a sticky end.Next week, it's part two of this Flo and Joan double bill, when you'll hear what happened when Rosie Dempsey joined the force, and helped solve a crime which straddles the stomping grounds of our very own Hannah George.  The Drunk Women are returning to their London residency at 21Soho in 2024!

272 MEN'S MONTH: With Kuan-Wen Huang

It's the last of our 'five guys of 23' as Men's Month draws to a close for another year and completing the stellar line up is the incredible comedian Kuan-Wen Huang, who for the first time in DWSC history brought along a side kick, who also happened to be a victim in his crime story, his bear Nounours!Kuan- Wen tells us about the time a would be kidnapper tried to abduct Nounours, but got more than he reckoned for and will probably never again decide he can pick on someone by appearances alone.The team then pick apart the life and times of someone the word 'eccentric' was probably invented for, proving the point that some people just have too much money, and will do anything to get their hands on even more. We finally hear from a listener who can't stress enough how much they spend on vanilla, or that they suspect a ghost of being a thief in their household.Thanks to all our wonderful Men's Month guests of 2023, it's lovely to give them all their big breaks … until next year!!

271 MEN'S MONTH: With Les Dennis

Men's Month hits national treasure status this week, as the team were thrilled when actor, comedian, presenter and expert in accents, Les Dennis agreed to come round to Hannah's flat to drink some Malbec and solve a crime, and it turns out, he’s a natural! Les sifted through his top ten of criminal experiences to share with us the time his skills as a performer saved him from a violent encounter, and even managed to ultimately enlist the help of his would-be attackers in finding some lost property. We then hear about a crime, which if it hadn't happened, would make the perfect case for Inspector Clouseau, and a natural accompaniment for Les' Malbec … although we definitely recommend giving the holy grail a rinse out before you pour any wine in. Finally, the team solves a listener crime in which we discover that most cats are either psychic, have IBS, or both!  The Drunk Women are returning to their London residency at 21Soho in 2024!

270 MEN'S MONTH: With Christopher Hall

We're smack bang in the middle of Men's Month 2023 and this edition is a walk down memory lane, when our Drunk Women took the show to a sell-out crowd at the Edinburgh Fringe, only for poor Hannah to be struck down by the dreaded Covid and so, was forced to head home.But, in her place we recruited the finest sub detective in all the land in the form of actor, comedian and super sleuth, Ruth Bratt!¬†By this time, Ruth was very at home in her role on the force and it didn't take this week's guest too long to get to grips with the ways of Taylor and Catie either, as comedian Christopher Hall lit up the stage and got stuck right in with the drinking and solving.¬†Chris started off the show by recounting a time of teenaged rebellion which ultimately cost him a career as a clarinettist and proves he probably couldn't make it as a wrestler.¬†The team then solve a crime which proves that murder is more of a crowd pleaser than the royal family, and a ‚Äėmum look‚Äô can scare the bejesus out of the most hardened criminal.¬†We then hear from a member of the audience with a cautionary tale should you be confronted with someone trained in the way of the samurai.¬† The Drunk Women are returning to their London residency at 21Soho in 2024!

269 MEN'S MONTH: With Clive Anderson

Men's Month continues a pace and today is a throwback to the heady days of Edinburgh Fringe 2023, when comedian, broadcaster and former barrister, Clive Anderson threw caution to the wind and joined Taylor, Catie and Hannah on stage, impressing the sell out crowd with his phone's umbilical cord as well as the ability to solve crimes. Clive started off the night with a tale from his 'wild' student days - thank goodness he didn't go down the wrong path all those years ago!The whole team then solve a mystery which had police scratching their heads at the time, but then again, they didn't have Clive Anderson on the force. Finally, a member of the audience leapt up on stage to share a story where the crime could be the theft of a night out! The Drunk Women are returning to their London residency at 21Soho in 2024!

It comes around faster and faster every year, doesn't it? Yes, Men's Month is here again and what a way to kick things off, as we welcome the star of hip hop, podcasting and a whole lot more besides, Scroobius Pip! As this was recorded over Zoom, we invited our wonderful Patreons to watch the spectacle, and boy what a sight it was to behold, as Pip, started things off with a duo of crimes that gives us an insight into his incredible taste in art and negotiation skills. We then get to hear about a crime from the past which beggars many questions, including the debate about cows and horses’ ability to bend their knees in both directions. We then hear from one of the watching Patreons about the demise of a local establishment and if having a sticky floor is ever acceptable!  If you want to join the gang on their next live Zoom, or get a shout out from Taylor and ad free episodes, just go to Drunk Women Solving Crime | creating Podcasts | Patreon AND you can see them LIVE in 2024, as they return to their residency at 21Soho in London - tickets go on sale 10am November 1st 2023, for full details go to 21Soho (21-soho.com) Hosted on Acast.

265 Sirens a Blazing, with Lisa Greenwood

In today's episode, the gang assembled in the hottest room available in London to restore justice and solve some crimes.They weren't sweating it out alone though, as they were joined by actor and writer Lisa Greenwood, who proved to be hot stuff in the detective department.Lisa reveals a web of criminal activity she's been exposed to and can possibly never go to Romford again and should definitely be accompanied if attempting to visit the Kent coast, so she doesn’t get the wrong train and end-up behind bars instead... which is feasible. The team then join forces to solve a misdemeanour from days of yore...whenever that was, Dickens may or may not have been there, but that's not important to the story. We then have a listener tale, which brings streams of pleasure to the group when they manage to solve it - once and for all.  Support DWSC on Patreon for as little as £3 a month, you will have access to add free episodes, shout outs and the opportunity to watch live Zoom recordings - Drunk Women Solving Crime | creating Podcasts | Patreon Hosted on Acast.

264 DRUNK WOMEN EMPIRE, LIVE!

The team at Drunk Women Solving Crime LOVE a mash-up, and this week's episode is a mash made in heaven, as we join forces with Chris, Helen, and James from the wonderful Empire Film Podcast to bring you, DRUNK WOMEN EMPIRE!Luckily the London Podcast Festival was able to provide a stage big enough for six members of the force to solve a film-based crime, and it was a natural meeting of minds, as not only can the Drunk Women and Empire teams combine incredible sleuthing skills with encyclopaedic film knowledge, but each podcast boasts an inhouse impressionist. Regular listeners to DWSC will be familiar with the format, although there are a couple of twists - for which we won't give any spoilers - but as always, we hear from the audience who have their own crimes that need solving, one of which could see us all in court as accessories - how exciting! We hope you enjoy this merger as much as we enjoyed merging, if you do, why not give it a review? Something like, 'Titanic Among the Podcasts', five stars... Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Oh, what a night.... well, it was the final show at this year's Edinburgh Fringe, and thank goodness the brilliant comic, Thenjiwe was there to share it with us!As this was the last night without our very own Hannah George, it was also the last occasion our newest, brightest member of the force, Ruth Bratt acted as stand in.The team would like to give a heartfelt thanks to Ruth for stepping in at incredibly short notice, and for being such amazing member of the gang. The only way we can better this is to get Ruth back on one of the live shows with Taylor, Catie AND Hannah all in attendance. Thank you so much Ruth, you are officially the chief of police and a drunk woman who can indeed solve crimes. We were also blessed that guest, Thenjiwe, was not only being an incredible detective, but also proved she had the Monopoly when it comes to crime solving skills, which helped an enormous amount with getting to the bottom of a story which was more than a trunk than a case. We finally heard from a member of the audience, whose criminal story was a bunch of pants - and we mean that in the nicest possible way.  Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
