Who shat on the floor at my wedding?

4.8/5

Critic Rating

Who Shat On The Floor At My Wedding? was a question shared by brides Helen McLaughlin and Karen Whitehouse after they tied the knot on 11 August, 2018 on a boat in Amsterdam. It was a question that launched a podcast, which led to the hiring of unqualified detective Lauren Kilby, the purchase of a €99 lie detector, and the bothering of some of the world’s best forensic experts - all in an attempt to find out “poo dunnit”. For season 2, the investigative trio is back with a brand new mystery set in Sweden (Scandi Noir if you will) called The Case Of The Ti...

Catherine Carr • Podcast Rex Jun 16, 2024

"(Season 2: The Case of the Tiny Suit/Case) ...very funny new (podcast) series...mixes absurd Scandi noir with cartoonish sound fx and music, silly crime and cop tropes with lots and lots of jokes..."

Jude Rogers • The Guardian Jun 1, 2024

"(Season 2: The Case of the Tiny Suit/Case) The questions to the mother-in-law, Kristina, are amazing...the use of sound is great throughout...I’ve had a sneak peek of episode 2 and my stomach muscles are still aching from laughter."

Hannah Verdier • The Guardian May 23, 2024

"(Season: The Case Of The Tiny Suit/Case)The plot thickens when a suitcase later appears, complete with skin-coloured pantyhose and some very old swimming goggles. Cue some very amateur sleuthing."

Nicholas Quah • Vulture May 23, 2024

"(Season: The Case Of The Tiny Suit/Case) Much of Who Shat’s comedy lies in the application of extreme vigor to the banal, the podcast equivalent of dropping a nuke on a fly. Unlike the turd of the first season, this particular mystery carries a more overtly unsettling edge."

Hannah J Davies • The Guardian Aug 14, 2023

"...a 13-part “poodunnit”...Despite being a show about possibly the grossest thing you could imagine someone doing in public, there is definitely a joy and a sense of unbridled silliness to Who Shat?...it manages to feel at once high stakes and totally ludicrous."

Fiona McCann • Irish Times Jul 15, 2023

"The result is a locked-room drama of a rib-cracking podcast...it’s charming, pleasingly shambolic and often snortingly funny, anchored by the deadpan delivery of Detective Lauren Whitby and her two bridal foils. With canny sound effects, sizzling chemistry between the hosts, the right mix of chutzpah and true mortification, the up-for-it-ness of a surprising number of experts and wedding guests, and the levelling directness and repetitive particularity of the past participle “shat”: it all comes together as both entertaining parody and kind of poignantly human truth."

James Marriot • The Times UK Jul 13, 2023

"What follows is actually pretty funny. I was extremely sceptical. But as podcasts about illicit excretion go I suppose this is relatively classy. Karen, Helen and Lauren play it straight. Plus Lauren and Karen are both New Zealanders and there is something very funny about a deadpan Kiwi. I promise this is funnier that it probably comes across written down. The first episode is a reasonable 15 minutes long. The last is almost two hours. I felt a bit exhausted with all the prevarication by the end. Still, it’s wittier than the unpromising subject matter would suggest."

"It’s preposterously funny and entirely ridiculous."

PR Staff • PodcastReview.org Jul 6, 2023

"...delightfully amateur...One of the funniest podcasts to have emerged in the last few years, the laughs are not forced, nor are they particularly juvenile, given the subject matter. Who shat on the floor of my wedding? is cosy crime with a healthy dose of double entendre."

Lauren Passell • Podcast The Newsletter Jul 18, 2022

"...the second you start listening you realize it’s an investigative non-fiction series, set on solving a mystery...If you weren’t listening to any of the hilarious details and one-liners, you’d think you were listening to a podcast from a newsroom. With hints of American Vandal, Who Shat? has the right feel but I would have loved to hear Keith Morrison narrating it. You guys I’m on pins and needles."
