Hello, my loves! This year was the year I really got into true crime podcasts. I never used to get into true crime, but decided to give it a try. As someone who has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, true crime is very fascinating to me. Even though I have my degree, most jobs I would like require a master’s degree or higher. I do digress from the topic; and here are my favorite true crime podcasts.
Going West was the podcast that introduced me to true crime podcasts. Run by co-hosts Daphne and Heath, Going West covers mainly smaller names in the true crime world. I actually am a Patron of theirs and have the privilege of listening to their Patron-only podcast called Real Crime.
Daphne Woolsoncroft and Heath Merryman discuss haunting details of different disappearance and murder cases week by week. New episodes released every Tuesday and Friday afternoon at 2pm PST
Crime Junkie is the most popular true crime podcast on Apple Podcasts, run by cohosts Britt Prawat and Ashley Flowers. They also do quite a fabulous job of telling the story behind each crime. They cover smaller cases, but they also do cover a few big cases.
Crime Junkie is a weekly true crime podcast dedicated to giving you a fix. Every Monday, Ashley Flowers will tell you about whatever crime she’s been obsessing over that week in a way that sounds like you’re sitting around talking crime with your best friends. The storytelling is straightforward and free of rabbit holes so the cases stay suspenseful and are easy to follow. If you can never get enough true crime… Congratulations, you’re a Crime Junkie!
Cohosts Ashley and Ricky run Crime Salad. Like most of the podcasts I listen to, they mainly cover smaller or mostly unheard of cases. Each episode is 30 minutes long at most, making this one of the shorter-form podcasts I listen to.
Crime Salad is a true crime podcast, delivering a healthy portion of crime every week on Wednesdays. Hosted by Ashley and Ricky.
Stolen Lives is a podcast covering murdered or missing children and adolescents. It is such a good podcast, as it covers cases that I usually don’t hear about as they involve children and teens.
STOLEN LIVES is a podcast dedicated to spreading the stories of those who are forgotten. Those whose lives were stolen. The missing and murdered. STOLEN LIVES tells the stories of these people to keep their memory alive.
