Hi! We are the voices behind the podcast: Hot Tea & Cold Cases. We became friends in 2010, our freshman year of high school – the year when Angry Birds was downloaded on everyone’s iPod touch, Glee was in full swing, and we were fully convinced we were going to become Youtube famous. Unfortunately for us, our Youtube careers of Dance Dares did not take off – so we decided to try our hand at podcasting almost 10 years later.
We instantly connected as friends that loved to eat junk food and play Call of Duty (Zombies obviously) for almost 18 hours straight – NOT an exaggeration. Our friendship maintained strong during those four years of high school, and almost every weekend we would have sleepovers alternating houses. Long story short, as cool as we may seem now, we were NOT popular in high school – but the people that weren’t popular in high school always tend to be the most popular OUT of high school… right?
We then started college after graduating high school in 2014. Thankfully, we both graduated with Bachelor’s degrees in 2018 in fields we love! Alexa is happily engaged and working in her field of study, and Ali is currently pursuing Master’s degrees and working in her field of study.
We both love animals, music, dancing, laughing, and coffee. We ultimately decided to start podcasting because 1. We think we are absolutely hilarious and 2. We can talk about one topic for days on end – so naturally, a podcast seemed like a good hobby to get into. We both are super interested in crime, mysteries and ghost stories, so we decided the best topic for us to talk about would be cold cases because in one way or another, we decided we could fit those topics into our theme.
Always feel free to reach out to us if you have any further questions! Get to know us more by tuning into our podcasts and get a taste of our personalities and humor.
Oh, did we mention that we LOVE coffee?
