True Crime Podcasts
The Explosive Genre
True crime is as much an American pastime as baseball and apple pie, thanks to the 2014 hit podcast Serial. But a lot has changed since then. In five short years, the true crime genre has exploded to include a huge variety of podcasts, ranging from narrative pieces like Serial to “murder comedies.”
What makes murder so fascinating for so many people? Maybe it is facing the limits of human cruelty, or the deliciously morbid details, or a failing justice system that gets your blood going. But what can not be denied is that true crime is thriving and here to stay.
The genre is dominating the podcast charts with no signs of stopping anytime soon. Today, we are living in the golden age of true crime because there are literally hundreds of new podcasts to choose from.
