Now Listening; Favorite itunes Podcasts

Snow days are great (if you get them) but can
sometimes be boring. Or maybe you are from
a place that is not prone to in-climate weather, but 
have found yourself with some serious
 down time this month.

One of our newly acquired pleasures lately
have been crime podcasts. Yes that's right,
Crime. There is something so strangely intriguing
about a good murder mystery, and even more
fascinating when they are real.

It all started with a curiosity for Serial.
We jumped on the bandwagon (way late)
, but like most, we were instantly hooked!
It was a real episode flipper.

As luck would have it, our procrastination
somewhat paid off. The Serial podcast has 
since inspired several other pocasts to sprout up
on itunes in the vain of True Crime.
It's almost as good as binging on Netflix...almost.
But the nice thing about it is you can listen
to them at work too!

I think we have just about gone through them all
but if you are like us, and find yourself with
an afinitiy for the mysterious, check out 
our favorite True Crime Podcasts on itunes!

AND, if you have any suggestions for ones to try out,
let us know! We are always looking for a
great new binge!



Fact is scarier than fiction. Casefile, a true crime podcast
Each episode explores a new case. The shocking, 
the terrifying, the strange, the unsolved.



Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life,
 hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial tells one story—
a true story—over the course of a season. 
Each season, they follow a plot and characters wherever they take you. 
They won’t know what happens at the end until they get there,
 not long before you get there with them.



On December 31, 1997, at a New Year's Eve party 
broadcast on live TV, Sheryl Sheppard accepted a marriage
 proposal from her boyfriend, Michael Lavoie. Two days later,
 she disappeared. In Season 2 of SKS, documentarian 
David Ridgen joins Sheppard's mother Odette on her search for answers.



When Elizabeth Andes was found murdered in her 
Ohio apartment in 1978, police and prosecutors decided 
within hours it was an open-and-shut case. Two juries
 disagreed. The Cincinnati Enquirer investigates:
Was the right guy charged, or did a killer walk free? 



The Vanished is a true crime podcast that explores
 the stories of those who have gone missing. Join host,
 Marissa Jones, as she investigates each case, often 
interviewing the loved ones who are still searching for answers. 



Sparked by a chilling tip, Missing & Murdered
Who Killed Alberta Williams? is an eight-part podcast
 investigation that unearths new information and potential
 suspects in the cold case of a young Indigenous woman murdered
 in British Columbia in 1989



 AN APM REPORTS PODCAST. In the Dark. A podcast 
about a 27-year child abduction investigation that changed
 the nation. Child abductions are rare crimes



The Sword and Scale true-crime podcast is an 
immersive audio experience covering the underworld of
 criminal activity and the demented minds that perform the
 most despicable and unthinkable actions, proving that 
the worst monsters are very real.

Pieces STL Board Game Cafe

 You guys! The BEST bar just opened in St. Louis, 
Pieces St. Louis Board Game Cafe!

This past weekend, we decided to visit
the new establishment and give it a go.
We may or may not have
 also had heard they had bottomless mimosas
on Saturday and Sunday, so we obviously had
to check that out too!
(The rumors were true if you're wondering!)

We had the greatest Sunday Funday
immersed in childhood flashbacks such
as Dream Phone (yes that's right DREAM PHONE)
and other classics, like Yahtzee and Monopoly,
and even decided to branch out with a new game
13 Dead End Drive. We could have stayed there
all day and night if we could.

Pieces is stocked with over 500 board games
all ranging from easy to difficult,
and all very fun!
Not to mention, they also serve food
and drinks. Grab your friends and go play
some games!

For hours and menus or more information
visit www.stlpieces.com!

This might have been our favorite game of the day.
It took a bit to set up, but it was worth it!
It was like a 3D version of clue. Some of you
may have played it, but if you haven't
we reccommend it!

Tunesday; The XX

Is it too early to be counting down the days
to Bonnaroo in June? NEVER! We've been
anxiously waiting for the release of the lineup
and creating countless Bonnaroo Wish lists
of Artists we hope to see this year. One of
those artists is The XX. We saw them on
our very first time on the farm and are ecstatic
at the thought of getting to see them again on the
stage. We have had their new single On Hold
on repeat for the last month and can't wait for
their album release in a few days!

Check it out on Spotify! and look
out for their album release this week!

Happy Tunesday!
