I love podcasts!
I listen to podcasts pretty much every day. While I’m doing chores, doing my makeup, painting, working on this blog – just all the time.
I use Spotify to listen to podcasts 99% of the time since I have Spotify Premium. I also use Stitcher once in a while because when I find a show I really love, Stitcher sometimes has old episodes that aren’t on Spotify anymore.
Anyway, I love podcasts and the true crime genre is definitely my favorite. Once in a while, I’ll find a podcast about another topic that I enjoy but yeah, most of the time it’s true crime haha.
Hopefully, I’ll share more of these posts in the future but today I thought I’d share my 7 favorite podcasts right now! 🙂
I feel like I can honestly say that this is my #1 favorite podcast, ever. I am obsessed with true crime, as you can probably tell. And this is SUCH a great podcast! I love the personalities and the banter between Nic and the Captain. I also love the fact that almost all of their episodes come in 2 (or more) parts, so you get enough in-depth information into each case. This podcast is entertaining and informative, but still respectful of the victims. I cannot recommend it enough!
Recommended episode: They have so many episodes on the Delphi Murders case! 4 Years Later /// Parts 1 & 2 are their most recent.
I listened to True Crime Obsessed for a little while but it just wasn’t my cup of tea. But I loved Patrick Hinds’s personality so I was happy to find Obsessed With: Disappeared, which is also hosted by him! This show recaps episodes of the ID Channel’s series Disappeared, about missing people. The hosts are super funny but still take the stories of the missing people seriously.
Recommended episode: The story of Brianna Maitland, who has been missing since 2004, has always been fascinating to me. Episode 50 discusses this case.
This is one of the more recent podcasts that I started listening to but it’s a great one! Similar to True Crime Garage, I like the banter between Mike and Gibby. They poke fun at each other, but they’re respectful of the victims. I also love that they have 2 shows, one focusing on solved cases and one focusing on unsolved cases.
Recommended episode: Brian Shaffer’s disappearance is a pretty well-known case but it’s still so interesting. I definitely recommend TCATT Unsolved’s episode on Brian’s story!
This is another podcast that I only recently started listening to. I got into it because OWD mentioned their coverage of the Brianna Maitland case and I immediately binged so many episodes. The hosts are professional but engaging and they go deep into the cases they discuss. Crawlspace has another podcast about Maura Murray that I’m planning to binge soon!
Recommended episode: I have to recommend their Brianna Maitland coverage, of course. They have many episodes about it.
This is a podcast that I’ve been listening to since it first started, about a year ago. It actually talks about paranormal topics instead of true crime, haha. It’s another podcast with likable hosts, which is a must for me. They talk about things like aliens, ghosts, and cryptids. If that’s something you’re interested in, this is worth a listen!
Recommended episode: Episode 23 is about the legend that the sets of The Exorcist and Poltergeist were haunted. It’s super interesting!
This is a really popular podcast. I listen to it on and off but right now I’ve been listening to it regularly again, haha. They talk about spooky topics, from serial killers to cults. I enjoy their weekly “Side Stories” series most, where they discuss recent news. The hosts are pretty hilarious too!
Recommended episode: They have a 3 part episode about Adolfo Constanzo, a drug dealer, serial killer, and Palo Mayombe cult leader. Super interesting and scary!
7- Crime Junkie
This is actually the first podcast I ever really got into and I’ve loved it ever since! I love Ashley and Britt’s personalities and how passionate they are when they talk about the cases. Plus, they’re pretty local to me so that’s an added bonus, haha.
Recommended episode: Sherese Walker was pretty local to me – just like Crime Junkie in general. I was interested in learning more about her story. Her death was very mysterious and confusing, and I really hope they can prove what happened to her!
