This past week I’ve been sick and housebound (screw you bronchitis) so to pass my waking moments, I’ve been bulk listening to crime podcasts. They’re fascinating, gripping and truly addictive.
Hearing about a case unfold, details of evidence and real interviews with everyone related to the crime – I find it so interesting. These are five of the awesome true crime stories I’ve been listening to lately:
Hosted by a crime reporter for the Cincinnati Inquirer, Accused investigates the murder of Elizabeth Andes way back in 1978, a crime that remains unsolved today. I love the style of this podcast, it’s well written and read which makes it a great one to listen to.
2. Up and Vanished
The 2005 disappearance of beauty queen and high school teacher Tara Grinstead is chronicled in Up and Vanished. This remains the biggest case in Georgia Bureau of Investigation history. The podcast assists in some case breakthroughs so it’s been interesting to follow.
Crimetown takes you to Providence, Rhode Island in a time of mobsters, organised crime and politics. There’s good guys and bad buys in this real life Sopranos-esque story.
Made by the creators of popular podcast Serial and This American Life, S-Town is about death and intrigue in a rural Alabama town. It features lots of discussion with colourful local, John B McLemore.
5. Someone Knows Something
I’ve just started season one of Someone Knows Something. It’s about five-year-old Adrien McNaughton who, while on a family fishing trip in 1972, disappeared in the Canadian woods.
While these are just a few good ones, I’m sure there are lots of other great shows worth checking out.
Are you into podcasts? I’d love your suggestions for what to listen to next.
