Love Ash and Alaina!

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.
