Today (March 19th, 2021) marks the return of Red Nose Day, aiming to bring together the United Kingdom in a bid to show that humour is the perfect antidote to seriously troubling times.

In an era when it’s never felt more important to make one another smile and do some good for the community, money will be raised to help those in the UK and around the world who are struggling more than ever, due to challenges we’ve always faced as well as those amplified by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of this year's fundraising, two of the UK's top true crime podcasts have joined forces for The Red Nose Day Podcast Mashup. The hosts of RedHanded and Drunk Women Solving Crimes come together in an event spearheaded by Acast, that's sure to get you grinning.

"After the past 18 months, people need a helping hand more than ever - and we all need a laugh more than anything!" says RedHanded hosts Hannah and Suruthi. "So, we were delighted to take part in raising awareness and money for Red Nose Day 2021!”

Drunk Women Solving Crime's Taylor Glenn added: "It's been soooo much fun taking part in the Acast podcast mashup for Red Nose Day, and knowing we're helping to make a difference brings a smile to our faces!”

So, their collaborative name? Drunk Women Caught RedHanded, of course! You can listen for yourself below:

Other podcasts being brought together include Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster x Films To Be Buried With Brett Goldstein; Dear Joan and Jericha x RHLSTP; The Horne Section x Hip Hop Saved My Life; and Dane Baptiste Questions Everything x My Mate Bought A Toaster.

Meanwhile, the traditional Red Nose Day festivities, which include sketches and stand-up routines amongst a bunch of surprises, take place tonight from 7pm on BBC One!
