in my opinion the most well done and entertaining crime podcast is serial. I like casefile and true crime brewery but I find myself losing interest in most episodes about halfway through. howeverrrr my all time favorite crime podcast Ive ever listened to is the 5 part series casefile did on the east area rapist.
i used to listen to true crime garage a lot but after a while those guys started to really annoy me and I cant listen to it anymore. the guys in true crime garage don't seem to be able to fill two episodes with each crime and it gets soooo boring. also, and this is going to blow some minds at first but i know there's other people out there who feel this way cause i googled it when i realized that it was this issue that was driving me up the fucking wall when i listened to the podcast: the true crime garage guys have a regional speech issue where they add an "L" to words. For example "draw" becomes "drawl" and "saw" becomes "sawl" and it makes me want to cut my ears off and give them to my online girlfriend. It'd normally be totally inappropriate and lame to make fun of the way someone talks but the more i listened to those guys the more i realized theyre kinda jackasses in more ways than just the way their speech sounds...
I second you on Casefiles 5 part EAR episodes being the best ever! I finished Part 1 of Casefiles newest episode Silk Road and am reaaally enjoying it...looking forward to part 2 and 3.
Also feel you on losing interest in TCG episodes halfway through...glad it's not just me having this issue lately.
True Crime Garage, The Vanished, Generation Why and Court Junkie are my favs.
We have the exact same taste in podcasts.
My favorites right now are Casefile, Criminal, In Sight, Canadian True Crime. Next on my list are Already Gone and Generation Why.
I love Already Gone, Nina is the best! I feel like it’s a lesser known podcast but she really focuses on the victim and who they were. It’s a nice balance because I also listen to ones that focus more on the perpetrators.
Accused is a really good one
Up and Vanished is amazing!
I tried listening to Criminal. Phoebe Judge is insufferable and all the topics are really mild. She has the same speech impediment as Barbara Walters and the same pseudointellectual air about her.
I can see where you get this vibe, though I personally find Phoebe to be compassionate and funny and I think her lisp is cute. I actually like that it's a milder podcast, there are plenty of chilling ones out there.
Wine and Punishment podcast does a deep dive into the punishment of the crime and takes a close look at the criminal. It’s newer.
Interesting- I’ll check it out
I love true crime garage.. when they are on their A game no one is better at case by case storytelling. their first 150 episodes are must listen. But basically everything after Kyron Horman has been slow and uninteresting. I don’t know if it’s that they’ve picked crimes that aren’t as engrossing or after 150 episodes they’ve just worn out their welcome. Anyway, They seem like they make 2 or 4 part series just for the sake of it. Their last 4 part series “The Devils Teeth” was not worth 4 episodes. By episodes 3 I felt like they were just rehashing everything. Hopefully they get their groove back soon.
Sword & Scale is my favorite true crime podcast by far.
Color Me Dead. The episodes about the Toy Box Killer. I couldn't sleep it was so creepy the way they read the audio.
The number one true crime podcasts on their list isn't even exclusively true crime. Lame.
