The True Crime Podcasts Hosted By Women You’ll Be Hooked On
True crime is a grizzly, yet highly fascinating topic. There is something about wanting to understand the mind and motives of a serial killer that can be highly exhilarating. On your daily commute, or at the gym, as you put your head phones on, are you listening to Beyonce or about a murder case? No one will ever know and its your very own dark secret…and for good reason – because crime podcasts are addictive.
We’ve picked out a few that you might want to get stuck into if you’re looking for a break from happy clappy “how to be a better person” podcasts. All led by women, with great banter to boot, you might find that you want to take some time off work just to listen to all of them…
My Favorite Murder
Hosted by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, these two LA-based friends you wish you’d had when you first discovered that you’re abnormally fascinated by murders and serial killers. Listening to these two feels like being part of a conversation you don’t want to end. What’s more is that they’re witty and can make you laugh even when talking about gruesome crimes!
Ashley Flowers and Britt Prawat tell some great, well detailed, crime stories in a way that makes you feel accepted for your interests in the macabre. Although its mostly murders, missing people and unsolved cases that they talk about, which can be rather heavy to digest, Britt and Ashley add an easy lightness to the topic. Be warned: there are a lot of unsolved cases to make you want to get on Google and try to solve them yourself...
