About Us

We’re Danielle and Aaron, the voices behind Bad Acts: A True Crime Podcast. We live in Houston, TX, with four spoiled rescue cats named Catsby, Poe, Kasha, and Willow. We both spend a lot of time watching true crime shows.

Danielle is a writer, artist, and performer who’s previously written for an online newspaper, taught English and writing, and worked for a governmental agency. She enjoys writing stories, doing improv, painting with oils and watercolors, reading, and going on walks. She’s also super into plants, even though she sometimes forgets to water them.

Aaron is a software engineer who loves sci fi. In his free time, he likes to read and write computer programs. He’s always down to try something new, especially when it comes to food. He also loves spending time with his family.

Every week, we bring you true crime cases with a dark twist. We focus on cases that are uniquely terrifying, including cases where perpetrators blame the supernatural. But don’t worry, we stay firmly rooted in reality and love busting their excuses for their awful deeds. Our stories are often fresh, so tuck in and join us for this long ride into the dark.
