Double Take: The Onion's 'A Very Fatal Murder' and our (spoiler free) 'West Cork' review

Double Take: The Onion's 'A Very Fatal Murder' and our (spoiler free) 'West Cork' review

Not even a blizzard can stop the Crime Writers from their appointed rounds (though it may crackle the connection once in a while).

We get skeeved out by the latest accusations of "Making a Murderer" defense-lawyer-now-judge Len Kachinsky (cue your own cat noises). There's a notable cameo in "Sword & Scale." And we toss around our thoughts on the Onion's new true crime parody podcast, "A Very Fatal Murder." Does a send up of the crime podcast world seem like it's about three months too late?

Then a no-blarney, spoiler-free review of Audible's new 13-part series, "West Cork." The famous1996 murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier is relatively unknown to American listeners. Not since "Serial" have we had such access to a prime suspect. We'll tell you whether you should make time for this one.

FOR A LIMITED TIME, YOU CAN LISTEN TO WEST CORK FOR FREE ON AUDIBLE - EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SUBSCRIPTION. Our review is truly spoiler-free, but if you still want to skip right to our verdicts, go to 53:22.

Then in Crime of Week, how else are you going to carry all that dough around?
