Our Top 13 Must-Listen True Crime Podcasts

Here at Attitude Clothing, we love anything macabre – and we suspect you lot might do too! While the pain and suffering of others is obviously terrible, I’m sure we can agree that there’s something about murder most foul and the killers responsible that is endlessly fascinating.

It can’t just be us that think this way either – true crime has been a growing genre of pop culture from books (Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders has proved a timeless true crime classic) to TV series (watched Mindhunter?) and Netflix documentaries (we all binge watched Making a Murderer, admit it), but most recently podcasts dedicated to the pursuit of understanding and discussing the mind of a killer have been popping up everywhere.

Whether you’re a true crime fanatic who thinks they’ve worked out who the Zodiac Killer really was, or simply want to dip your toe into the dark pool of murderous lore, there’s a true crime podcast out there for you.

To get you started, or to keep the true crime fires burning, we’ve put together a list of our favourite true crime podcasts that we think suit all kinds of dark minds – from those that are looking for cold dead facts to those that love their murder with a generous helping of dark humour to take the edge off.

Serial

This is the podcast that we believe got so many hooked on true crime podcasts. Back when Serial season 1 started, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing discussions about whether Adnan Syed really had killed his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. Thoroughly researched and based off interviews with those who knew Adnan, as well as Adnan himself, Sarah Koenig is able to piece together the events surrounding Hae’s murder and leaves you wondering whether Adnan really did commit the murder he’s been sentenced to life in prison for.

A detailed and attention-grabbing listen, this one’s great for those that are new to true crime and really want to get their teeth stuck into an intriguing case.

The Dating Game Killer

Love dating shows? Love learning about serial killers? How about a serial killer than won a dating show? The Dating Game aired for many years, but its 1978 contestant Rodney Alcala would go on to be one of the most infamous winners. Convicted for killing eight victims, and suspected of killing many more, this podcast explores the truth surrounding Alcala’s life.

Great for those who prefer to hone in on all the details of one case rather than short bursts of multiple cases.
My Favourite Murder

Another comedy duo taking on the murky depths of true crime, My Favourite Murder hosts Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark have been breaking download records and gathering enthusiastic fans (which they encourage to join their ‘fan cult’) since the podcast began in early 2016. Often grabbing a spot on the top ten iTunes comedy chart, the pair recount their favourite murder tales and even invite friends and fans in to talk about hometown crime stories!

Fans of dark humour, rejoice. You’ll find a home here among your fellow “murderino” fan cultists.

Swindled

While most true crime podcasts focus on murder or serious crime, Swindled takes a different approach. Focusing in on con men and corruption within big corporations, Swindled explores more subtle crimes that still have devastating effects upon their victims. From the Flint water crisis to poisoned baby formula and shady politics, they explore white collar crime at all levels.

If con men and corporate corruption are more your bag, Swindled is sure to give you plenty to conspire about.
