Our Editor's Take

That's a Bad Sign is a true crime and mystery podcast. The podcast hosts narrate stories of murder, mystery, and mayhem. They pull stories from different sources on the internet and offer a retelling.

Emily Winchurch and Liz Mahoney host the show. The New York City natives discuss serial killers, abductions, and mysterious disappearances. As each episode plays, listeners soon forget Liz works in retail while Emily works for a tech company. All those personal details fade into the background with That's a Bad Sign. They get their audience interested as they tell shudder-inducing stories.

One host narrates on That's a Bad Sign, and the other interjects or chimes in. Sometimes the other host questions a description of a killer. Sometimes they make snide remarks about the vocabulary in the sources they use. They manage to keep things lighthearted while sharing gruesome and tragic stories. The duo intermingles the mundane with tales that may leave listeners terrified.

That's a Bad Sign offers listeners a view into serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jack the Ripper. The women also examine the disappearance of Bobby Dunbar and the case of the Cannibal Cop. They talk about the abduction of Zephany Nurse. Other episodes explore the murders of Brian Barrett and Angela Samota.

The hosts share their opinion of the villains and victims in the stories. The back and forth between Liz and Emily leads to many laughs for a true crime podcast. They know how to tell a scary story without even trying. Their gossipy manner lures unwitting listeners into terrifying tales. New episodes of That's a Bad Sign come out every Thursday.
