When Indianapolis natives Ashley Flowers and her childhood friend Brit Prawat started the chart-topping true crime podcast Crime Junkie, they didn’t anticipate it would be this popular. Their weekly podcast delves into a variety of unsolved crimes, and listeners are often left feeling as if they’re sitting with the two friends for coffee and discussing their latest obsessions. However, a recent Instagram post from Brit has shocked fans, and she’s been forced to take a break from the show.
In the May 2022 episode of the Crime Junkie podcast called “Important Message,” Ashley broke the news to her listeners that Brit had suffered from a brain bleed. She had to undergo multiple brain surgeries, and it’s clear that this is going to be a long recovery process for her.
It’s not clear whether the podcast will continue without Brit, or if she’ll return in the future. In the mean time, fans can support her and her family by sending them good wishes. Brit is also in recovery from alcohol abuse, and it’s been heartening to see her community come together to provide support for her.
Brit is a mother to two young kids, and she also has two dogs named Niles and Roz. She has 215K followers on Instagram, where she posts pictures of her family and her love for animals. She used to work for a private investigator, and she is the one who got Ashley Flowers into podcasts in general.
