The Podcast Explosion
The true crime genre for podcasts has hit the internet like a storm. This new wave of gripping productions seems to be serving a morbid curiosity that is encoded deep in the DNA of human beings.
Society has always had an interest in the macabre. Whether it is Dateline, 20/20, Cops, or even Dr. Phil in certain moments, true crime has always had major traction on television and through other media like books and films.
There is an entire television network dedicated to the genre, so this recent explosion in podcast shows makes total sense. The long-form audio format of a podcast allows the listener to not only get lost in the depth of the story but to also become privy to real audio clips from 911 calls and actual confessions recorded by the police.
If you are already a fan of true crime or if you are looking to get indoctrinated into this thrilling new wave of investigative entertainment, we have compiled the ultimate true crime feature for you. Read More
