This long weekend is the perfect excuse to start a healthy obsession with a new true-crime podcast. Whether you’re into cold cases, cults, or murder mysteries, here are five recommendations you won’t be able to hit pause on.
Cult Liter is a must-listen for macabre histories, cult activities and bizarre true crime. Host Spencer Henry also reads stories sent in from listeners to debrief hometown crimes, UFO sightings and killer ex-boyfriends.
If manhunt investigations and crime scene forensics is more your speed, then look no further than Crime Insiders. Each episode either hosts a decorated forensic expert or veteran Police investigator to talk about cases they’ve worked on, including some of Australia’s most notorious crimes.
This 8-part series unpacks one of Australia’s most famous cold cases. Three-year-old Cheryl Grimmer disappeared from a beach near Wollongong in 1970. Can the case still be solved?
This six-part crime thriller audio drama has listeners hooked, adapted from a novel by crime writer Sara Foster. The story is full of unseen twists surrounding the disappearance of 17-year-old Lizzie Burdett.
Snapped: Women Who Murder
We hear a lot about male serial killers, but what about women? This podcast unpacks cases where women are accused of murder. Each episode zooms into motive, whether it’s a cheating lover, hire-for-murder, or a dodgy insurance payoff.
