The Best True Crime Podcasts Out There

Podcasts have blown up in recent years, and now there truly is something for everyone. For fans of the true crime genre, podcasts can be a treasure trove of intense stories and relatable characters, so here are the best podcasts you need in your library. 

Let's take a look:

Dirty John (Apple Podcasts & Spotify)

Dirty John is one of the few instances where a podcast has done so well that it's been turned into a hit Netflix show. While Eric Bana and Connie Britton stole the show, the story began in a podcast by the same name from Christopher Goffard and the Los Angeles Times. 

The podcast follows the rollercoaster story of John Meehan and businesswoman Debra Newell, whom he met on an online dating site. With themes of kidnapping, manipulation, and murder, this is one podcast you won't be able to turn off. 

Serial (Apple Podcasts & Spotify)

As one of the most popular true crime podcasts out there, Serial has produced three brilliant seasons for its followers. Hosted by journalist Sarah Koenig, season 1 takes you through the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed. 

Season two follows Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban, and the latest season focuses on the  American criminal justice system. 

With millions of people regularly downloading the episodes, this is one you definitely don't want to miss. 

The Last Podcast on the Left (Apple Podcasts & Spotify)

If you are looking for a true crime podcast series that differs from episode to episode, then this is a guaranteed hit. Produced by Marcus Parks and hosted by Ben Kissel, The Last Podcast on the Left highlights historical horror through subjects like the Salem witch trials, mythological beasts, and the Zodiac killer. 

With each episode completely standalone, you're never going to get bored. 

The Teacher's Pet (Apple Podcasts & Spotify)

Having launched in 2018, Hedley Thomas' podcast uncovers the truth behind the 1982 disappearance of Lynette Dawson, wife of rugby league player Chris Dawson. This 18-episode-long series uncovers new information and has been dubbed "a masterclass in investigative journalism."

Dawson is currently on trial for the murder of his wife, which has prompted Thomas to create another podcast entitled: The Teacher's Trial. 

Sweet Bobby (Apple Podcasts & Spotify)

Pondering the question "how much do you really know about the person you love", Sweet Bobby is a six-part investigation into one of the world's most prolific catfishes. The show's central character Kirat finds herself attracted to a handsome young cardiologist by the name of Bobby on Facebook. The only catch? He isn't real. 

My Favorite Murder (Apple Podcasts & Spotify)

My Favorite Murder exploded when it was first released in 2016. With retellings of history's more famous crimes and captivating hosts who keep the conversation fresh, it comes as no surprise that the show has seen numerous spin-offs. Though successful, none have come close to the success of the original. 

Missing and Murdered (Apple Podcasts & Spotify)

Last but certainly not least is Missing and Murdered, which seeks to delve into missing and murdered indigenous women. Hosted by Journalist Connie Walker, the show's first season was centered around the murder of Alberta Williams. Then 2018's second season pivoted to talk about a young girl who was lost in the welfare system in the Seventies. 

The podcast is emotive while also shedding light on a very serious issue still prevalent throughout the United States.
