About the Hosts

AlexProfile Photo


Co-Host, Digital Art Designer

Alex is a half-Indian, full-horror-fanatic, with a somewhat “gallows” sense of humor and a questionable moral compass! She is looking to fill the masala spaces in her soul with the Desi umami chaat of crime and the pursuit of justice.

After having spent a good part of the last decade filling the background of her life with true crime podcasts. Alex was gung ho to play the part of the somewhat-but-not-entirely-desi sounding board for stories of demented and macabre happenings from South Asia & so she is now baked into the DNA of Crimes from the East!
