RedHanded Podcast Hosts:

After graduating from The University of Birmingham with a BSc and an MSc in Economics, and quickly becoming disillusioned with the world of finance Suruthi Bala went into the relentlessly tiring world of events. After a year of travelling, she met Hannah, and RedHanded was born.

Hannah Maguire thought she was going to be an actor, then like many, she was a teacher, and then like not so many, she wound up co-hosting the true-crime podcast RedHanded. As a dyslexic devourer of audiobooks and a lover of stories, podcasting was made for her.

Praise from Listeners*:

  • Balanced Approach: Suruthi and Hannah’s chemistry and camaraderie, makies the podcast feel like a conversation between friends and listeners enjoy the balance of serious investigative journalism and light hearted banter.
  • Updates: Listeners appreciate the updates and follow-ups on cases previously covered, satisfying the listeners’ curiosity.
  • Diversity of Cases: The inclusion of lesser-known and international cases, broadening the listeners’ understanding of true crime worldwide.

Criticisms from Listeners*:

  • Tangents and Off-topic Discussions: Occasionally, Suruthi and Hannah’s conversational style leads them to veer off-topic or engage in extended tangents. While some listeners appreciate the casual and relatable approach, others find it distracting or detracting from the main content.
  • Sensationalism and Humor: RedHanded often incorporates humor and wit into their storytelling, which can be polarizing. Some listeners enjoy the light-hearted moments as they provide relief from the dark subject matter, while others feel it undermines the seriousness of the crimes being discussed.
  • Lack of Sensitivity: Given the nature of true crime, RedHanded occasionally includes explicit details about violent crimes that some listeners find distressing. While trigger warnings are provided, some individuals feel that the graphic content could be further minimized or handled with greater sensitivity.
