Mel will watch series finales of shows to see if she wants to watch them, which astounds Sammy.

Mel has an opinion about Iggy Azaela, whom Sammy has only heard parody songs or mash ups of.

Episode 70 - MBSing with Mel Evans - Female-Committed True Crimes

Read more
Fellow podcaster Mel Evans drops by MBSing for some October-appropriate scary killer talk! She is as delightful as she is knowledgeable about women who have committed murders. From Lizzie Borden to Snapped, we cover a lot of killer ground and have a total blast along the way. I don't think I ever would have pondered the different ways/reasonings females commit such crimes or the disparity between how they're treated for such sprees versus the drive behind male-committed killings and the way most are shrugged off as chemical imbalances. It's a weird thing we do as a society to slap a "crazy" label on any woman acting out of sorts. More of that talk and plenty of lighter fare in this truly wonderful ep.
