More To The Story with Staley: Crimeaholics

Dave meets a local woman who is part of the team for a True Crime podcast

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – 29 year old Kenzi Durbin lives here in Chattanooga. Two and a half years ago, she and her good friend Holly Allen started a podcast. Calling it “Crimeaholics.”

The two always had an interest in true crime. Purely fun. It was a hobby. Not anymore.

It’s now a passion. And a full-time job. Investigating unsolved murders. Advocating for missing people. As well as families who’ve had loved ones murdered.

The podcast is listed under entertainment. But it’s serious business concerning serious subject matter.

“We want to make sure we’re keeping their names alive. There’s a lot of families out there who feel like their voices have never been heard. So we work to get their stories out there. And try and bring loved ones home.”

Kenzi and Holly Allen, who both went to school for criminal justice, are experiencing results. Working with law enforcement and private investigators.

The long hours and lengthy research is paying off. The podcast has been listened to in all 50 states. In 152 countries. In its first 18 months,

Crimeaholics was downloaded over a million times.

That popularity is surprising even to Kenzi Durbin!

“We feel very blessed. These people we’ve worked with have become our family. We’re honored. We never imagined this would happen in a million years.”

The podcast Crimeaholics is available on all major platforms. Simply google Crimeaholics.
