They Will Kill is one of the best true crime podcasts. There is no denying the power of siblings. Think about it. There are endless combination of talented and famous siblings: Venus & Serena Williams, John and Joan Cusack, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen – simply to name a few! So it’s not surprising that sisters Courtney and Sadie Eck have teamed up for one of the best independent top true crime podcasts out there and a top podcast of 2021.
They Will Kill is not only the product of two sisters, but it is also a podcast for true-crime podcast fans by true-crime podcast fans. These two sisters are such fans of true crime podcasts that to keep up with their rate of listening, they decided to start their own. From their time growing up in a rural town in central Indiana, they constantly relied on each other for entertainment. Which is one of the most appealing aspects of They Will Kill. Not only do these sisters have undeniable chemistry, but it’s the combination of chemistry and banter that makes it so entertaining as a listener.
Since launching in February of 2020 it’s clear that each episode of They Will Kill will come with a disclaimer. The episode will be well researched, and it will likely be a case you are unfamiliar with. Courtney and Sadie’s undeniable passion for all things true crime is apparent given the depth of research they provide for each topic. What I have enjoyed most about listening to They Will Kill is that each case covered is one that I have been unfamiliar with. Courtney and Sadie will explore cases ranging from a mass shooting in a bowling alley to a man that botched a planned heist on Halloween night. Some of the cases include Chris Marquis murder, Jamison Family death murders and others!
They Will Kill offers a balance of both case investigation and host commentary. Where some podcasts never quite find this balance, Courtney and Sadie both do a great job of staying on track with the case but also providing a level of brevity with their commentary. With episodes typically clocking in at around 45 minutes, They Will Kill makes for a great listen to get some weekend chores done or just throw on and have a relaxing cup of tea or coffee. Regardless of how you take your true-crime podcast, don’t miss out on one of our favorite podcasts from 2020. Check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Podchaser.
