Gretchen Macaulay is a true crime enthusiast since she started reading acclaimed author Anne Rule’s true crime stories and stayed up watching Unsolved Mysteries in junior high. As the years went on and while studying anthropology in college she still managed to squeeze in every episode of dateline and forensic files into her busy life. With all those hours of crime TV she thinks of herself as a true detective, although technically she mostly worked in hospitality aboard boats along side her husband of the past 11 years. Today Gretchen lives in Orange County California where she is raising three young children. Like so many other moms out there that find themselves drowning in sesame street and diapers, when she has moments to herself she escapes into mind stimulating true crime series.
Tabitha’s love of true crime happened when a real media worthy true crime took place in her hometown Ventura, California. Tabitha found herself waiting in line for a seat in the courtroom of the Sherri Dally murder trial while friends her age found themselves at the beach. After graduating college with a Communications degree, Tabitha’s inquisitive personality and the gift to gab served her well in sales positions but now her natural talents are perfectly suited for her true crime podcast. Housewives of True Crime is just that, it begins with a little chit chat about the daily drama of raising three kids with her husband Sean in Los angels and dissecting whatever true crime has recently peaked her interest.
Gretch and Tab
Gretchen and Tab have been friends for 20 years and you can tell in their relatable banter. Both have been married over a decade and both raising three young children is not all they have in common. They both keep up with all the latest current events and follow true crimes down the rabbit hole as they like to say. They enjoy finding the details that usually get swept over. After years of talking crime in the carpool line they decided to put it all out there for listeners to enjoy as they tell each other a case every week and candidly discuss what their unfiltered and unscripted opinions are. Their unique style of surprising the cohost with what case they are about to hear each week makes the listener feel just like they are there and part of the conversation.
