Oconee residents Beth Farrington and Haley Dalton have created a true crime podcast called “Just Another Murdercast.” 

This show explores past murders in Georgia and elsewhere. Farrington volunteers as a paramedic with Oconee Fire Rescue and works full-time with National EMS. Dalton is a hairstylist and a boutique owner. 

The women have been hosting the podcast for about a month. 

“For my birthday, Beth got us a podcast,” Dalton said. “We both love true crime podcasts.” 

They’ve been invested in this genre of storytelling for years. Dalton got hooked on the podcast “Serial,” while Farrington was drawn to “Up and Vanished.” They also both bonded over the show “Small Town Murder.” 

Despite the subject matter, the podcast does have some moments of levity and humor.

“A lot of people in EMS have very strange senses of humor,” Farrington said. “It’s a horrific [kind of] story, but we make it interesting and funny to listen to. It’s not just a ‘feel bad’ kind of thing.’”

While Farrington can offer her medical knowledge during episodes, Dalton lets her bubbly personality shine. 

“Everybody loves a good story, but everyone loves to laugh,” Dalton said. “So in these times where the world sucks right now, let’s have a laugh while we’re doing something we love.” 

For each episode, the women take turns telling a story.
