10 MORE Podcasts You Should Be Listening To {And I’d LOVE to be a guest on}

Four years ago I made a post about podcasts that I love and I would be so crazy excited to be a guest on. FOUR YEARS ago. I feel like podcasting has gotten even bigger since then. I’ve started two podcasts and dabbled in it as well, and am getting ready to launch another one. It’s a medium that I absolutely love and can get behind. It’s so great for staying up to date on things, learning things and just being entertained. And while True Crime might be a lot of people’s favorite type of podcast there’s a ton out there.

Here are some new favorites and make sure to check out the old list These Are Their Stories! For all my True Crime fans here is my old list of These Are Their Stories.

  1. These Are Their Stories – This is one of the newest podcasts I discovered randomly scrolling through the lists. Its an entire podcast dedicated to the Law and Order series (original, CI and SVU). Since I was born and raised on Law and Order and wish every darn day that the original series would come back…..and have ridiculously strong opinions. The commentary is funny, and everyone on the show takes it as seriously as I do.
  2. Red Handed – These cheeky ladies hail from across the pond and I absolutely love it. Part commentary, part true crime. they do decent research and it hasn’t transcended into some weird stand up routine as some true crime podcasts do. They do a lot of foreign crimes that I don’t know so it makes it even neater. I’d love to chat it up with these ladies. I have a Criminal Psychology Degree….maybe I can be an American guest on their Stateside tour?! Come on ladies!!! Come to DC!!
  3. Crime Junkie – Essentially what everyone who loves true crime podcasts wishes they would have thought of first. Similar to Red Handed, the stories are well-researched discussions from a true “crime nerds”. I love the length of these episodes. They aren’t too long and aren’t prioritizing comedy at facts expense. The ladies are witty and have good conversation. It’s just a really good podcast.
  4. Hot Marriage, Cool Parents – I’m a recent fan of this show and of the show’s hosts. Jamie and her husband met on Married at First Sight. This crazy thing, that God used for so much good is the backdrop of their pretty amazing story. I would love to chat it up with these guys. It’s just a most of the time funny, sometimes serious, take on life, parenting, and marriage.
  5. What Should I Read Next – This should be on the podcast list of every book nerd. I wasn’t sure what exactly to expect when I started listening. Would it be just another review podcast? Not really. It’s so much more. Guests, and host Anne, talk about why they read, what they look for in a book and {Like me} how connected and affected they are when they read. It’s such a fun show to throw in the mix, especially if you are an avid reader. Sometimes it’s easy to simply fall back on what’s comfortable, but listening to a podcast like this you’re able to get ideas from people with different tastes than yours.
  6. PS I Hate This Movie – Perhaps the greatest podcast idea ever, PS I Hate This Movie addresses the very real feeling of loving to love {and hate} romantic comedies. With their most of the time absurd plot lines they still make us feel good. A hilarious look at some of our favorite romantic comedies.
  7. We Hate Movies – This particular podcast doesn’t reserve its “hate” for easy targets like rom coms, but for all movies. Comedy podcast at its finest. Movies so terrible we love them….and also movies we just plain hate….but in the most loving way. It’s all the conversation you would have with your friends and its amazing.
  8. Crime in Sports – combining two of my favorite things – Sports and True Crime. I mean, what more could a girl want? Crime with a sports twist? I’m in!!! Hosted by two comedians…so you know its more comedy than crime, but in the best way.
  9. Sports? with Katie Nolan – I love love LOVE Katie Nolan. Being a female in the sports world, still in 2020, sucks! If not only because there still just not a lot of them. What could girls possibly be contributing to the conversation? Not only does Katie contribute to the conversation she does so extremely well, eloquently and frankly, gosh darn hilarious! IF you love sports add this podcast to your list.
  10. There are so many Doctor Who podcasts….like a lot. I even have one called Two Nerdy Girls (you can find us on iTunes). Some of my favorites that I would love to be on include Debating Doctor Who, Doctor Who: Gallifrey Public Radio and Bad Wolf Radio (There’s literally so many more! And they are all pretty darn good!).

There are so many podcasts I love to listen to, but not that many make the list (comparatively) of ones that I’d like to be on. No matter what the topic is, you can’t make a good host out of thin air. I’d love to hear some of your favorites. Comment below or join the conversation on social media.

10 Binge-Worthy Podcasts to Feed Your True Crime Addiction

While we are waiting for Season 2 of making a murderer we might be trying to satisfy our love of true crime. And while many people have hopped on the bandwagon of crime with what I like to think of as “crossover crime” like some of my favorite true crime podcasts “White Wine True Crime”, “My Favorite Murder,” the need for a more detailed show is real! Audio Investigative Journalism, when done right, is a beautiful thing. Some of these podcast reside more in the “history” category, then traditional true crime, but the investigator inside of me loves them just as much. So, I’m sharing with you 10 of my favorite that you should check out.

  1. American Scandal – American Scandal is a podcast covering one topic per “season”. The first season talks about a subject I knew very little background about. The doping scandal that plagued baseball and several Olympic athletes. Amazing research and detail was put into this podcast, and the narration is amazing. The story behind how this podcast came to be is equally intriguing, proving that good investigative journalism is so important.
  2. Dr. Death – This is the podcast that has shocked me the most. A story I had never heard, and one that made me more mad than I already was with the medical field as a whole. I can guarantee you will not only love this podcast, not be able to stop listening, you will be desperately waiting for more when you’re done.
  3. Gladiator –┬áHosted by one of the team members from Spotlight (remember that amazing movie about the outing of the Priest scandal?), The Boston Globe has partnered with Wondery to bring us the story of Aaron Hernandez, an extremely talented yet tormented football player that ended his life after immense tragedy to many. If you don’t know the story of Aaron Hernandez you should. It goes beyond the terrible story of him personally, but delves into the issues surrounded head injuries and football. This podcast is currently ongoing, so you can all wait along with me for new episodes to drop.
  4. Happy Face – Focusing on a serial killer that doesn’t get discussed as much as some that have been emblazoned on the general public’s mind (Ted Bundy, Golden State and Jeffrey Dahmer), this podcast follows the story of the daughter of Keith Jesperson (The Happy Face Killer).
  5. In the Dark – Two seasons in, In the Dark is brought to us by APM Reporting (American Public Media). Fifteen years of investigative reporting working with public radio in Minnesota and California and does way more than podcasts. The first season covers the Jacob Wetterling story. I have opinions about this case but I can’t ruin it for you!! So if you want to talk to me about it hit me up on Instagram! The second case covers the equally shocking Curtis Flowers case. Also….no spoilers!
  6. Slow Burn – Sitting more in the history camp of things, SB is also a season podcast. The first season discusses the Nixon scandal…which I know what you’re thinking. What more could we need to discuss about Nixon. Just listen. The second season tackles Bill Clinton. This one even the hubby was getting into, and he generally just rolls his eyes at my morbid loves.
  7. Someone Knows Something – From CBC news in Canada comes this amazing podcast. Host David Ridgen has now jumped high up on the list of people I’d like to share a cup of coffee with. We are already into Season 5, so hurry and catch up! I’m not sure which season has been my favorite, but Season 3 was pretty darn amazing. David is a stellar journalist and interviewer, getting those he talks to to open up and tell him the stories that really make investigative journalism amazing.
  8. Uncover:NXVIM – Its easy to fall down the podcast rabbit hole, but once I discovered Someone Knows Something I discovered all of the amazing CBC podcasts. This one combines my interests of crime and history with Cults, a cult I had never heard of, but involves some celebrities you might. And skirting really close to a more well-known cult that has recently come under more public scrutiny of its own here in America.
  9. Teacher’s Pet – We move now into Australia, for a one and done podcast about a handsome footballer, turned teacher and his missing wife. This one, of all the ones I’ve shared, is less binge-worthy but still incredibly interesting. Plus, listening to an Australian accent for awhile is pretty nice.
  10. Unobscured – If you listen to Lore or Cabinet of Curiosities, you probably have already heard of this podcast. If you haven’t, first go bookmark the other two I just mentioned, and then come back to Unobscured. If you can’t tell I’m a fan of series podcasts, that take multiple episodes to cover one topic. In-depth research and attention to detail are what keep me interested. And while I know that’s not for everyone its something I love. This inaugural season of Unobscured discusses Salem Village, and exactly what you think of when you think of Salem.
