Finished “Last Stop Larrimah?” Here Are 5 Crime Podcasts To Listen To Next
It’s the two-part true crime documentary that has catapulted to the top of the Netflix’s Most Watched list – and to the tip of everyone’s tongues. Last Stop Larrimah, the HBO series investigating the mysterious 2017 disappearance of Paddy Moriarty, gives viewers an all-access pass to Larrimah, a tiny outback town in the Northern Territory that was once a hub of activity.
Over time, the community dwindled to just 11 people. There’s no phone reception and no police station; there is, however, a pub, a pet crocodile and a pie shop famous – according to its eccentric owner – for its homemade camel pies. There is also enough gossip, feuds, grudges and accusations for a town 10 times its size.
All of these stories bubble up in Last Stop Larrimah: Murder Down Under, which attempts find out exactly what happened to Moriarty, who was last seen leaving the pub on December 16, 2017.
Don’t worry, there are no spoilers here; this is a series absolutely worth the watch. When you’re done, though, here are some crime podcasts like Last Stop Larrimah we’ve got available for you to listen to next.
