One of the listeners says in their review of the podcast, “I am obsessed with True Crime, and never heard one that covers Indian True Crime. I love how the hosts interact with each other and the jokes are funny and they are quite passionate about true crime. I am a fan!”
The duo follows an intriguing approach to describe the crimes, sometimes analyzing the psychology of the convicts and how the crime affected society. Their first-ever episode called the “India’s youngest serial killer (so far)” describes the story of Amardeep Sada, a regular 8-year-old boy living in rural Bihar. Sneha and Aditi follow a storytelling approach to gradually unveil why his neighbors are afraid of Amardeep and the chilling secrets that his family is hiding. One can’t help but wonder, what happens next while listening to this podcast.

The description of the episodes leaves much to the imagination and invokes curiosity so one can’t help but listen to the whole episode to know more about the intriguing cases. In another one of episodes, Sneha talks about Black Warrant: Confessions of a Tihar Jailer, and her fascination with Prisons, True Crime, and Death Penalty.
“The Murder of Graham Staines” is a gripping episode about the bone-chilling murder of an Australian Christian Missionary in Odisha, back in 1999 and in “Thug Behram”, Aditi takes one back to the era of British rule to find out the details about the most prolific serial killer in Indian history.
