Why I'm Obsessed With 'True Crime Obsessed'

I finally started listening to podcasts and now I'm never turning back.

Why I'm Obsessed With 'True Crime Obsessed'

I've known about podcasts for as long as I can remember. The first one I ever listened to was an "Ugly Betty" podcast that I listened to on my light green iPod nano which was probably 2008ish.

For a number of years, I hadn't really listened to any podcasts. I had been jamming out the same playlist every time I got in the car and I finally got tired of it. So after getting in my car to drive back home from school, I opened Spotify and instead of clicking on my commute playlist, I browsed through the podcasts section.

I selected a super random playlist and ever since, I had been HOOKED.

Take it from me, if you're a fan of crime dramas and comedy... "True Crime Obsessed" is for you!

In each episode, Gillian and Patrick recap true crime documentaries. Let me tell you... they do not hold back. They hit on some hard to get content with grace and nothing but respect but if the time is right they will kill you with comedy. The best part is... these podcasters almost always say exactly what the listeners are thinking.

I've listened to some hilarious stories from southern states, heard the absolutely mortifying story of Warren Jeffs, and am currently in the middle of "TalHotBlond."

Staying in and watching "Dateline" on a Friday night has always been one of my guilty pleasures. So finally having a way to get those true crime vibes in a different format has been super refreshing.

With each episode I listen to, I get a new documentary to add to my watch list.

And if that isn't enough... they have more content on Patreon. That means once you run out of free content you can always get more without breaking the bank!

So what are you waiting for? Open up Spotify and search "True Crime Obsessed" and get obsessed!

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
