MurderSheet

The Murder Sheet is a weekly true crime podcast hosted by journalist Áine Cain and attorney Kevin Greenlee.

We take a journalistic approach to covefing true crime. We have broken national news on major cases, like the Delphi murders and the Burger Chef murders. We also cover plenty of other subjects, including high-profile murders, cold cases, legal topics within the criminal justice system, restaurant slayings, historical crimes, and wide-ranging interviews with authors and experts.

If you're looking for in-depth coverage of both well-known and obscure cases, smart legal analysis, and thoughtful interviews, then this is the true crime podcast for you. The Murder Sheet is a production of Mystery Sheet LLC.

Our Editor's Take

Murder Sheet is the podcast where true crime meets journalism. Listeners can listen to unbiased and objective episodes on these fascinating stories.

This true crime podcast comes to listeners from a journalist and an attorney. They are also married to each other. Áine Cain was a senior reporter at Business Insider for six years. With her experience covering true crime stories, Áine brings a plethora of journalistic integrity to Murder Sheet. Attorney Kevin Greenlee uses his legal expertise to ensure top-quality research.

Áine and Kevin first connected when they were both looking into a cold case from Indiana. Most people know this case as the "Burger Chef Murders." The two created a spreadsheet covering hundreds of homicide cases related to restaurants. This spreadsheet became the "Murder Sheet," from which the show gets its name. And much of the first season of this podcast talks about the Burger Chef Murders.

Today, the hosts of Murder Sheet talk about more than restaurant murders. Áine and Kevin discuss homicide cases of all sorts, unsolved cases, and historical crimes. Murder Sheet is far from an ordinary true crime podcast. The hosts do more than discuss what other investigators have reported. They conduct investigations themselves and interview people closest to the cases.

Listeners will love Murder Sheet for its ongoing coverage of the Delphi murders. This tragic saga follows the deaths of two young girls killed on a hiking trail in Delphi, Indiana. As the hosts find new details, listeners can expect the best coverage of the case on this podcast.

Veteran true crime lovers and those new to true crime will enjoy this podcast. Áine and Kevin gather the facts and are clear about any statements that are conjecture. Their research is thorough. Anyone looking for a clear and concise true crime podcast will enjoy Murder Sheet. The hosts stay away from distracting gimmicks like overused sound cues.

Fans of Murder Sheet may also enjoy Mystery to Me. That is Áine and Kevin's other podcast. It's about fictional murders on TV shows and in movies.

The Delphi Murders: A Flurry of Defense Filings
We'll talk about the latest filings in the Delphi murders case.Send tips to murdersheet@gmail.com.The Murder Sheet is a production of Mystery Sheet LLC .------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------In-depth journalism is more important than ever in a complicated, chaotic time.  That’s why we listen to PR’s Throughline. This is a podcast that appeals to us on so many levels. As history buffs, we love their historical contextualization of important ongoing issues. As storytellers, we love the engaging way their approach and often humanize complicated issues. As news consumers who want to stay informed, we love the way they give the story behind the big stories of the day. We try to take a similar approach on The Murder Sheet, and we feel confident that our listeners would enjoy giving NPR’s Throughline a try too.We’ve been going through their entire backlog recently, listening to them as we drive to source meetings. One favorite of mine was their episode about Andrew Johnson’s impeachment. Throughline’s coverage didn’t disappoint, delving in depth into one of history’s worst US presidents and the legal significance of the first ever presidential impeachment. They also did an episode that is so pertinent to our work was about the proliferation of conspiracy theories, and how they’ve always been part of America’s DNA. That’s something we think about a lot, given the creep of misinformation and manipulation in online true crime spaces. NPR’s Throughline is a source we trust. They’re all about nuance and depth and unpacking the messiness behind outwardly simple stories. In a world when it’s getting harder and harder to know what sources to rely on for information, they’re a standout in terms of their research and thoughtful takes. Go back in time. Learn something new. Emerge more knowledgeable about today’s headlines.
