The abundance and popularity of true-crime podcasts meant the time had come (and gone, and come again) for a really hard look in the mirror. The Onion and Onion Public Radio bravely rose to the challenge!

This week, we're featuring Episode 1 - The Perfect Murder , the opening chapter of The Onion Public Radio's first true crime podcast: A Very Fatal Murder.

This hour more of our faves, including Gloria Gaynor, a seventeen year-old retiree, and two spoofs: one microbiological and one murderous.
