The New England region of the US is located in the northeast part of the country and is compromised of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. It’s an incredible area and known for its historical landmarks, sports teams, foliage, and Podfluence. Yes, we are biased in our love for the area. But New England is also home to tons of unsolved cases, mysteries, and shocking crimes. And that’s exactly why we think Killer Babes is one of the best new true-crime podcasts around.
Who better to take for a trip through New England other than a few hometown girls. Candidly, hosts Katie and Kirby are the friends you didn’t know you needed. These best friends bring you right into the group with their relaxed and no holds barred approach. Katie and Kirby start their process by doing some initial research on a case, then when possible, travel to the location of a case to get a better feel for it. Killer Babes is a story of their experience and exploration and discussion on case details.
Given how big the New England region is and how much history the area holds, there is a ton of material for Killer Babes to cover. Some of the famous cases you will hear about range from Aaron Hernandez to Lizzie Borden. They also even explore spooky towns in the area like Salem, MA. One of the episodes I was most interested in checking out was about the mysterious Danvers State Hospital.
Since their first episode in February of 2019, Killer Babes has over 50 episodes and cemented its footprint as a great comedy true-crime podcast. I think it could become one of the best podcasts in the genre as they continue to grow and become great podcasters. With episodes ranging from 30-60 minutes, listeners will be able to throw an episode on at any time of the day.
Killer Babes might be creeping up on our list of best podcasts of 2021 so don’t sleep on these Killer Babes and check them out weekly for new episodes! Check them out on Twitter and Instagram!
