I was specifically looking for a podcast on disasters and prefer my tragedy with a side of funny, so this fit the bill. To be fair, Melanie’s voice took some getting used to you, but that was a me problem, not a her problem. Plus they have a really awesome social media community. I am really enjoying this podcast, plus they love my other favorites so clearly they’re my people!
This is without a doubt my favorite podcast. I started listening a few months ago and can’t get enough. I am working my way through from the beginning and haven’t come across an episode I haven’t loved. Brianne and Melanie are FANTASTIC together.
this is my favorite podcast in the world. period. full stop. perfect for lovers of all things macabre and disastery. brianne and melanie feel like my wise older sisters/aunts and their conversations are hilarious and comforting all at once. i’ve been meaning to leave a review for a while but i just do not have the proper words!!!! slay
After finding the podcast over a year ago, I’ve shamelessly listened to every episode more than once to be sure I didn’t miss anything! I look forward to Wednesday only because a new episode will be released and I’ll have actually have something good to listen to on my commute. Thank you to Melanie and Brianne for making my life more enjoyable by just being you and recording yourselves! I’m sending all love in hopes this podcast continues to grow and we see more episode releases a week, nevertheless it’ll always be my favorite!!
The podcast I’ve been looking for! I love the stories and banter and I really feel like I’m with friends when I’m listening
I am a big fan of disaster podcasts. People think I’m weird but people can learn from stuff like that. Typically I don’t enjoy banter before the main event of podcasts, but you guys are flippin hilarious! I almost got into a car accident laughing so hard. You guys talk about your life and it’s stuff we all go through, but you put a real, funny, and human twist to it! I’m sorry that one of you is going through a divorce. It’s hard, but you’ll get through it and be stronger for it. Trust me, I’ve been through two of them. I can’t believe you’ve never met! You sound like you have been best friends for decades! Your show is great and keep up t the great and macabre work!
I’m so glad I found this podcast! I’ve been a long time listener of my favorite murder, sinisterhood, let’s go to court, and last podcast on the left. But I ran out of new podcasts! After trying many many misses I finally found marked safe. Oh my god… it’s exactly what I’ve been searching for! I love the hosts! I love the rants! I love it all! Definitely check out this podcast if you like the ones I mentioned before, and listen even if you don’t. These girls are great! 💕
I absolutely love this podcast and always look forward to it! I love the dynamic between them and the topics that they cover. I’ve always been fascinated with disasters so I’m glad that I’m not the only weirdo out there!
I also hiccup/gasp/painful burp every time I drink soda. Who ever you’re talking about faking doing that is indeed not faking lol I’ve done it my whole life and actually didn’t know there were other people out there like me. Anyway, the podcast is pretty good. I’m on episode 46 so it can’t be that bad lol
Fresh, smart, funny, moves along nicely and the stories are compelling. Love the hosts’ easy banter and respectful irreverence. I was about to give up on finding a new podcast that was down my alley. Feels like I hit the jackpot. Thank you!
Such a wonderful, raw and funny podcast! I not only enjoy the subjects the ladies cover, but I greatly appreciate and love the honest and rawness that they share with us. One of my top 3 favorite podcasts to listen to! P. S. Brianne, my family sends our love and healing energy your way and hope that you have felt it
Introduced by a friend via the Indiana Stare Fair first episode. We are both originally from Indianapolis and remember when that horrible event happened. Thank you for connecting people through learning about tragedy. This podcast is a must listen!
I have been seeking this podcast (disaster subject with banter style comedy) since I started listening to podcasts in 2017, I was so excited to find them (I have been listening since they only had 5 episodes I was just using other podcast listening apps). I love their subject matter (wait— love? Maybe more fascinated by) I love their chemistry, I love their hot take brackets (Cryptids! Florida Men! Food!). I legit feel like these are the friends I always needed, but never met. But, unlike in person friends, at least I can hang out with them in the shower and the bath without it getting weird— well, I might have just made it weird.
Found them by chance on tik tok and quickly made my way through every episode. Story telling is so interesting and they make disasters fun to learn about (while still being respectful). I’m a listener for life!
1) I don't have the patience for deep dives, so this podcast is now the middlewoman for my disaster info itch; 2) Victims are treated with respect, reminding listeners that they aren't just statistics; 3) I have laughed out loud multiple times. Super relatable hosts with great sense of humour.
I am very much the target audience of the podcast: 30-something in love with chasing down Wikipedia rabbit holes. My opinion barely counts. Instead, let me tell you about my roommate, whom I love dearly but she does not understand my desire to read creepy stories or listen to any podcasts. I was listening to the episode about Our Lady of Angels while assembling a bookcase. I was already about half through and was finishing it up. My roommate was in another room, apparently listening enough to ask me for clarification. Which led to me turning it up. Which led to her joining me in the living room. Which has led to her asking about other episodes and updates on the "Disaster Ladies". People. Marked Safe converted a confirmed Luddite into liking one podcast. If that doesn't prove the quality of this podcast I don't know what will.
I first saw this podcast on Tik tok, enticing listeners in as only click bait tik toks can… with rollar coaster disasters. I immediately went to listen and have now gone through every episode. These wonderful podcasters have created a fantastic listening experience. A crime podcast with unexpected hope that maybe there’s hope in the world and I won’t be murdered by my husband (but may meet an unfortunate end under a bridge collapse). If you like My Favorite Murder, Crime Junkies, or Dateline without the monotone, this podcast is for you. Always excited for the next episode!
It's quickly become my new favorite! I'm sadly almost near the end and it's giving me heart palpitations but alas... I still love you gals. Your voices are just so soothing to me and I love your banter, laughs and stories. Oh, and Brianne, I bought that Pixi blush you talked about awhile back... it'll be here tomorrow! Keep up the amazing work, you fucking badasses!
Very lighthearted and carefully (usually) well researched disasters. Trying their best to respect what happened while still making the show entertaining. I started this show a week ago and am already on episode 50. I can’t recommend this show enough for anyone, episodes have left me in tears both of laughter and sadness of what happened.
I love my endless hours of entertainment with Melanie and Brianne :3 My two besties!!! I appreciate the care these two put into telling these oftentimes heartbreaking stories and the focus they put on survivors and victims of these tragedies. FURTHERMORE I love our warmup time together chit chatting and hearing about their lives. It’s a good and very necessary primer to the -horror- to follow (and I love all parts of this podcast equally). As one of the patrons who gently wept about the sirens in the theme song, the swiftness of a response from these two was really kind and thoughtful. Listening to your response in the pod had me totally embarrassed that I hadn’t left a roaring 5 star review for my favorite podcast yet, so add me to the list of people who hopped on right after to express my admiration <3 -Jaime, condolore, Marked Safe Superfan
This is my favorite podcast! Listening to these disasters makes me feel more prepared in a weird way. And I feel like I’m listening to 2 of my friends talk. Thank you! PS I love the theme music and the conversation!
Melanie and Brianne are friendship goals. They put so much love into both their podcast and their friendship. It’s a reminder that even when things are terrible there is always light.
This is one of my favorite podcasts and is one of the few I anticipate weekly, I’ll drop everything when there’s a new marked safe! Brianne and Melanie have such good chemistry and approach all their subjects with research, respect, and a healthy dose of humor.
