Coffee mug in the air- this is a toast to you, weary parent + sofa sleuth!
Milk and Murder is a crime podcast for swamped parents who love still love the thrill of hunting a killer. It’s for the big hearts with consideration taken for little ears; it’s about the victims and not the gore.
As a mom to four busy and oh-so-pure kids, I have created a unique crime podcast that prioritizes your wellbeing + lifestyle as a parent. I know that your true crime time is precious and I promise to honor it by covering the lesser known cases. With 19,000 homicides and 400,000 missing persons cases in the US each year, I know we can do better than Bundy...again.

Hi, I'm Bethany
Dreamiest coffee order: French press with extra half-n-half.
I was born and raised in the PNW. I live in NW Arkansas now, but Seattle is my first and last love.
I have four kids, two cats, and six kittens running around my house.
a quick rundown
missing shyshy pate
murdered jim and tina
murdered cheryl coker
murdered jane does
missing akia eggleston
These are the unsolved mysteries of Milk and Murder. These have all been forgotten with time, ignored by the police and media, or missing just the tiniest piece of key evidence that could shatter the entire thing. They need your help and they need your ears.
Missing & Unsolved
- emily dickinson
You know how having kids kinda made the world seem so much bigger and scarier? I get it, and that's why I used my decade of experience a supportive as a childbirth educator for a decade and my education in Criminal Justice to create a crime podcast that:
Honors your mental health
Helps bring respect to victims
Provides actionable steps for justice
Check in with me when you start listening if you want, I'd love to hear what case you're on!
I will be in touch soon!
This podcast is clearly done thoughtfully, respectfully, and with an empathetic eye to the victim and the family members. So many true crime podcasts focus on the gritty details but this one places the emphasis right where it needs to be. She also has a call to action, which many podcasts are missing.
I’m hoping that these episodes can breath life into cases that have been mishandled and forgotten. Also her voice is soothing as heck. — KateCruz, iTunes
So many true crime podcasts focus the bulk of their time on the perpetrator, and delve into the details of the act. That has its place, and so does M+M’s style of victim-first storytelling.
Bethany is a true gem, completely relatable, and a joy to listen to. — MonaLisaEscapes, iTunes
I love Bethany’s voice! She weaves her love for her kids, her true crime obsession, and her advocacy for mental health & social justice together seamlessly in this podcast — can’t wait for more! — NDoliner89, iTunes
Felt like chatting with a friend
I do like true crime but I don’t like the darkness that comes with other podcasts not feeling their care for the victims of the cases. There’s a lot of care from this podcast while giving you all the info gathered from in depth research. And it feels like a knowledgeable, kind friend walking you through this. And sometimes that’s exactly what you need with true crime. — Kayemzee, iTunes
Exactly what I wanted
Your heart and kindness have me in tears. I’m hooked. #FindShyShy — Curlytopk, iTunes
Can’t wait for more
Bethany had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. She paints pictures with her words that makes you feel like you are right there at the scene. My favorite part is the end where she gives you resources/suggestions to also help the unsolved case get solved. — Kimbothehutt, iTunes
