We Talk About 'Missing Richard Simmons' AND That 'Up and Vanished' True Crime Update!  

Can you feel the love tonight? The Crime Writers can.  Plus, the gang dives in to the breaking news about an arrest in the Tara Grinstead case - that's the one featured in the "Up and Vanished" podcast. At the time of our recording, it was unclear what role the podcast played in Ryan Duke's arrest, but did Payne Linsey's grandmother actually know more than the cops did? Next, Rebecca interviews Missing Richard Simmons creator Dan Taberski about why he was drawn to the vanishing of everyone's favorite flamboyant exercise guru. Then the Crime Writers review the podcast: Is it ethical to chronicle someone's withdrawal from public life? What makes Simmons's story so uniquely compelling? Why did someone who gave support to so many individuals seemingly turn his back on them? Also, Kevin recalls his own professional interactions with Richard Simmons. In the Crime of the Week: a squirrel plays guard dog by going spider monkey on a cat burglar.  HELP US KEEP "CRIME WRITERS ON" GOING BY TAKING A BRIEF SURVEY!

Pod One - EXCLUSIVE: Mum whose baby was spat at by racist scumbag speaks out! 23rd February  

It seems every day there's another story in the controlled media about a "wave of hate crime" or a "rising tide of Islamophobia". It's always blamed on Brexit, or Trump, or anything else they can pin on ordinary, decent working-class people! Well one hate-crime that you might have missed was committed against a baby, and Brexit had nothing to do with it. Hairdresser Rebecca Telford was walking her baby Layla-Jean in South Shields last January when Rezzas Abdulla approached her, spat in her baby's face and shouted "white people shouldn't breed". This racist piece of scum only got a suspended sentence, but I bet if this attack had been the other way roung, and the victim was a brown-skinned baby, the offender would be up on a hate crime charge! I spoke to Rebecca Telford to get her thoughts on the verdict. Before that I spoke to broadcaster and DJ Liz Kershaw. Yesterday's Brits were a total snooze-fest! Rubbish music, boring singers and no rock'n'roll at all - it's as if punk never happened! Do we need to get Jarvis Cocker out of retirement to wiggle his bum at Little Mix, just for a bit of excitement? Liz also gives her views on the rest of the day's stories, including key surgery being withheld from obese people and smokers, and fat cat university vice chancellors earning over a quarter of a million pounds!

David Tennant, second novels, Brits and Oscars - who are they for?  

David Tennant discusses his return to the Dorset coast in the final series of the ITV crime drama Broadchurch which begins next week. The actor also gives his response to the secrecy surrounding the script of the new series and the challenge he faced not being allowed to know the full storyline before shooting began. The Royal Society of Literature has launched a vote to find the Nation's Favourite second novel. Chair of Judges Alex Clark explains the challenges of writing a second novel and talks through the list, which ranges from Pride and Prejudice to David Walliams's Mr Stink. In the middle of awards season, and following controversies around race at both last year's Brits and Oscars, we ask if awards are still relevant and who they're actually for. Film journalist and President of the Critic Circle Anna Smith gives us an insight into the role of a judge, and music commentator Jacqueline Springer discusses whether a wake-up call has been heeded. Presented by: John Wilson Produced by: Rebecca Armstrong.
