A few crime podcasts I have been listening to
This is not my top whatever list of crime podcasts, just what I am currently listening to
Here are the four crime podcasts I am subscribed to, along with 1 other crime/murder history podcast I like. This genre of podcasts is pretty popular at the moment and I know there are more out there to listen to, I just need to find a few and try them out.
Spoiler Notice: I will not tell any specific facts or statistics about any of the podcasts below, aside from fact as to whether or not the crime was solved, assuming you have listened to every episode of each of them. I will mentioned, with 2 of the 5 podcasts below, the crimes being covered by the podcasts are currently unsolved, or at least publicly aware that they are, as of the writing of this post.
The first podcast, and likely my favorite, is Cold Case Files from PodcastOne. This one does not have the depth of information about each case like a series based show would, but each episode usually covers a single cold case and by the end of each episode, you learn what happened and the outcome. That is one reason I enjoy it, as well as the variety. With each new episode, there is a new mystery solved. Also, several of the episodes have narration done by a voice you may recognize.

The second podcast is Your Own Backyard by Chris Lambert. This one covers the history and evidence related to the Kristen Smart disappearance. The website has a good number of photos posted along with each episode, so make sure you check them out. Chris also interviews several people, including the parents, throughout the episodes. As well as, he does some investigations himself. I have listened to every episode of this series of podcasts and I look forward to listening to newer episodes to see what new evidence or information is released, and hopefully the case gets solved.

The third podcast is Down The Hill: The Delphi Murders by WarnerMedia. This podcast covers and interviews some people about the murders of Abby and Libby in Delphi Indiana. One thing that makes this hard to listen to, and likely hard for the host to cover, is the tiny amount of public information as far as evidence goes. The way the host narrate the show, I come away feeling the police have evidence they cannot share, rightfully so, but it does not help that I come away wanting this case to be solved.

The fourth podcast is the Dating Game Killer by Wondery. This podcast covers the history and outcome of the murders committed by Rodney Alcala. This podcast reminds me a little of a Columbo murder mystery. As you listen to the episodes, you know who the murderer is and they are telling the story of what happened. Similar to Columbo, where the viewer knows the criminal at the beginning, while Columbo doesn’t and is trying to solve it.

The fifth podcast is less of a crime podcast in the case of the genre of the previous four, but more of a history podcast. Each episode covers the history, crimes, murders and/or executions of noble figures in the past. One benefit to this podcast is after listening to each episode, I come away learning something. A short history lesson played into my ear.

I plan to seek out more crime podcasts, as I enjoy all of these and currently have listened to the full catalog of each one. So, unless new episodes come out, I am left waiting and wanting to hear more. I will write another post similar to this one as I find and listen to more.
Until next time, enjoy listening…
