My Favorite Murder, which discusses true crime in a comedic way, has been one of the top podcasts since its launch in 2016.
Fans of the show may enjoy listening to additional true crime podcasts that are available.
Shows such as Up and Vanished, Zealot, and Someone Knows Something are also entertaining dives into the world of true crime.
Whether you’re interested in the psychological side of crime, the brilliance of investigative reporting, or simply scaring yourself, there’s a true crime podcast for everyone.
Since its initial launch in 2016, “My Favorite Murder” continually ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on the internet. Fans of the show trust hosts Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark to provide heartfelt, hilarious retellings of the most notorious murders ever.
Equal parts terrifying and hysterical, My Favorite Murder (MFM) is like telling scary stories at a slumber party with your best girlfriends. Karen and Georgia will spend several minutes discussing the details of a ghastly murder, then swerve and discuss anything from pet peeves — such as people who scream when they sneeze — to their love for their pets at length. It’s a perfect balance of gravity and irreverence.
After you’ve binge-listened to all of MFM’s episodes, though, there are many other podcasts that look at the worst parts of humanity in novel, interesting ways. Really, the world of true crime podcasts is exploding, so listeners are spoiled for choice. As a fellow true crime podcast connoisseur, I have been captivated by all of these shows.
Hopefully you can also enjoy some of these stories while you wait for the next episode of MFM to drop.
The Crimetown podcast looks at the ways organized crime has affected American cities. The first season starts with a profile of Providence, Rhode Island and the many ways it has been shaped by corruption.
Hosts Marc Smerling and Zac Stuart-Pontier examine crime families, politicians, and their interwoven connections in this fascinating listen.
Although the Criminal podcast does examine terrible events, the focus is more on the human story behind the crimes. It isn’t as grisly as many other shows in the genre, so this is a great choice for anyone who shies away from the more shocking stories.
Host Phoebe Judge walks you through some of the more nuanced, complex aspects of true crime stories. For instance, in episode 78: The Botanist, listeners learn more about the world of forensic plant science, and how studying plants can help solve crimes.
Plus, this podcast often examines less flashy crimes that still have major effects on people’s lives. For example, episode 51: The Money Tree examines a case of identity theft and the lasting effects it had on one woman’s credit score, as well as her concept of family.
If the cult-based episodes of MFM are your favorites, then this is the show for you.
