‘RedHanded is a rollicking listen’ – The Guardian
RedHanded is an award winning true crime podcast that offers a weekly dose of murder and wit delivered with all the facts, anecdotal tangents aplenty, serious societal scrutiny and real BRITISH flavour.
3 years ago hosts Hannah Maguire and Suruthi Bala met at a party, they got drunk and decided to start a true crime podcast together. Within months they had started recording the very first episodes of RedHanded, with a £10 microphone, locked in a cupboard under Hannah’s stairs.
Today, RedHanded is an internationally-renowned, hit podcast with thousands of self-proclaimed ‘Spooky Bitches’ tuning in every week.
With two intelligent, opinionated, “big-mouthed” women at the helm, this podcast was never going to tow the line; but it was never meant to.
It was meant to disrupt.
Hannah and Suruthi both felt that true crime needed dragging into the world of today – no more raspy voice-overs subtly blaming the victim or totally ignoring the blatant societal issues around racism, homophobia, misogyny, politics, mental illness, corruption, religion, injustice and inequality that feed into every crime; this was going to be different.
And it’s working – RedHanded’s bold exploration of these issues coupled with the hosts’ sharp wit, sense of humour, deep research and refreshing case selection has seen the show gain international acclaim and a legion of ‘rabid’ fans.
