My Favorite Podcasts: True Crime Edition

There is a short list of things that I really love to talk about; affordable fashion, my cats, reality TV, traveling abroad and my favorite podcasts. I am constantly sharing on Instagram which podcasts I am listening to but I thought it was time that I dedicate a series of blog posts to one of my favorite subjects, podcasts!

I love all kinds of podcasts; pop culture, news, politics, business, basically any category you could name, I love it. There is one category of podcasts that I am especially drawn to and that is all things true crime. OOOhhhweeeeeee, I LOVE a true crime podcast! I am always listening to podcasts, when I am driving, working, working out, curling my hair, cooking dinner, ALWAYS!

My love for true crime podcasts started with the rest of the world when season 1 of Serial premiered in 2014. I was working in Santa Monica at the time and I would spend my entire lunch walking around Clover Park so I could listen to every last detail of every episode. I was so obsessed with  Serial that I would listen multiple times a week and it would never get old to me, I would eat every last detail up.

I love every true crime podcast, I go hard for My Favorite Murder because DUH!! but y’all already know everything about Karen and Georgia. So today, I am sharing my favorite true crime podcasts that have premiered in the last 12 months. Let me tell you, there have been some of the best-produced podcasts this past year. 

The Best True Crime Podcasts

Steve McNair: Fall Of A Titan

Before listening to this podcast I had NO idea who Steve McNair was (he played in the NFL) and yet I was immediately drawn to this case. This series reinvestigates the murder of Steve McNair and puts crucial details in a brand new light.

Gladiator: Aaron Hernandez & Football Inc

The Aaron Hernandez case was always so sad and fascinating to me, from the outside it appeared he it all. A further investigation into his upbringing and football career exposes a dark past.

Bear Brook

This podcast investigates all of the scary and awful details of a New Hampshire murder. This case changed the way murders will be investigated forever (think Golden State Killer).

Over My Dead Body

A podcast investigating a VERY Florida case, a messy divorce ends in murder, but what really happened? Please be warned that there is no true conclusion to this case!

The Dropout

This is the only non – murder podcast that made the list but it is still a true crime must listen! If you don’t know who Elizabeth Holmes is, google fast! The Dropout covers the rise and fall of Elizabeth’s company, Theranos. This podcast was a perfect listen for my husband and I because it was just enough drama for me and no one was murdered, which is important for him.

Broken Harts

This story and investigation left me completely SHOOK. An investigation into the death of two women and their 6 adopted children. This podcast really helped remind me that social media is JUST a highlight reel!

Case Closed

A deep dive into the disappearance of 19 year old Erin Corwin; this podcast has it all young love, an affair, a murder, and an arrest! If you love stories with an actual resolution, than this is for you!

Carruth

This investigative podcast exposes new details of one of the most shocking crimes in the sports world. This is the perfect podcast for the sports lover that wants to listen to a true crime podcast.

  1. I have never listened to podcasts. A lot of people talk about them but I just haven’t gotten the pull to try it out. I wouldn’t even know where to begin.
