Here's a thing we can't believe we get to type: This week's episode is pretty much just Allison talking to Lauren Lyle. Lauren! Lyle! LAUREN MOTHERF*CKING LYLLLLLLLLLLE.
The reason for this brain-melting event is Lauren's excellent new series, which we'll forever call "Marsali Solves Crimes" in our hearts but which is actually called "Karen Pirie." The show, which launched in the U.K. on iTV in September 2022, premiered on BritBox
in the U.S. on October 25. So Allison and Lauren talked about that. They also talked about the Big House. And Frasers doing crimes. And other things.
As an added bonus, before and after the interview you'll hear Allison, Julie and special guest Aaron "Janine" Pagel (!!!) talk about, you know, how awesome Lauren Lyle is. They also talk about Allison's other interview with Lauren Lyle, which you'll be able to read later this week. (We'll update this post with a link when it's available.)
Oh my god we've had Lauren Lyle on the pod,
