True Crime Podcasts for the True Crime Obsessed
These days you can find podcasts for just about everything. True crime podcasts are becoming more and more popular thanks to the amount of people flocking in droves to consume anything true crime-related. Below are some of the most interesting true crime podcasts for just about anyone.
- One of the most popular true crime podcasts is My Favorite Murder. If you listen weekly, I do, you begin to think of Karen, Georgia, Steven, and even Elvis the cat as a little dysfunctional family. They are witty and bring their own brand of humor to the retelling of some of the most compelling true crime stories. This has to be by far one of the most popular, if not most popular true crime podcasts today. The fans of MFM even affectionately call themselves Murderinos, but we aren’t a cult, I promise…
- Ok, I am well known for trying to get anyone that I can to listen to a true crime podcast. My brother is a prime example. I tried several different ones before he finally found one that he liked. The Last Podcast on the Left was the magic one. The reason he enjoys it so much is because it delves a little bit into the paranormal and some conspiracy theories. I’ve listened to a few of the episodes, and it’s good. I like to think of it as the all-male version of My Favorite Murder.
- Another one of my favorite true crime podcasts is Someone Knows Something. The first season was about the disappearance of Jacob Wetterling. The host Madeleine goes so in-depth with her investigation and reporting that you just can’t help but be drawn into it immediately.
- Up and Vanished is another great true crime podcasts that deals with the Tara Grinstead disappearance in the first season. It gives listeners a fascinating look into the investigation of this crime. I find something about it so morbidly amazing.
- A true crime podcast that not many people know about is S-Town. This podcast is about a man named John B. McLemore from a small town in Alabama that sent an email to the staff of the podcast This American Life asking them to come investigate a murder. The crazy thing about this podcast is during the investigation, John McLemore kills himself, from there the podcast turns in to something completely different. The ride that this podcast gives is one that you won’t soon forget.
