About Dumb Love

Dumb Love is a podcast about the dumb things people do for love from comedians Jen O'Neill Smith and Sally Brooks. Each week Jen and Sally share real love stories; two quickies, usually about hilariously stupid criminals, one crazy and often murderous tale, and one inspiring true love story.


If you love true crime podcasts, but are also secretly a sucker for the best love stories of all time, you're in the right place. Dumb Love is a little bit of true crime and a whole lot of true love. New episodes every Monday here or wherever you listen to podcasts about love, murder, and all the stuff that happens in between.
