On this week’s Double X Gabfest, Invisibilia co-host Hanna Rosin, New York magazine’s Noreen Malone, and senior managing producer of the Slate podcast network June Thomas are first joined by Rebecca Lavoie of the podcast Crime Writers On … (and Slate’s Mom and Dad Are Fighting) to discuss My Favorite Murder and women obsessed with true crime. Then they talk about the abortion referendum in Ireland, and the new BBC America series Killing Eve, about a woman in British intelligence and the female killer she’s hunting.
