It may be cliché, but I am very into podcasts right now. Though I don’t have a very long commute anymore, I still turn one on every time I’m in the car. Every once in a while, I prefer listening to podcasts over music, especially while traveling, and I find that they help the time go by faster. If you’re looking for a good place to start your own podcast listening, or if you’re looking to branch out into different podcasts, hopefully my recommendations will give you some good ideas.
My grandfather was a cop, and growing up, TV included a lot of true crime and detective shows. My favorite show was Monk, and I would read Sherlock Holmes mysteries aloud with my great-grandpa as I was learning to read (plus Law & Order was always playing on at least one TV in the house at any given time). This being said, it’s really not a surprise that I would up with a fascination for true crime and the justice system, and I’m definitely not the only one. True crime seems to be experiencing a massive spike in popularity. If you happen to be one of the many people who share this interest (and aren’t already listening to this podcast), check it out! *please note that if swearing upsets you, you may want to skip this one. Not family friendly*
This had been one of my favorite podcast for months and months, and I’m so excited to share it with you. My Favorite Murder is a true/crime-comedy podcast. The murder isn’t the funny part, but you’ll have to let them explain that because they do a much better job than I would be able to (they would never make fun of the victim, or make light of the fact that someone was killed). Each week, co-hosts Karen & Georgia take turns telling about the murder that has fascinated them for the past week. This podcast is a little light on facts (most of it comes from wikipedia), but is still 100% fascinating, and it’s full of rabbit-holes and side conversations that make me laugh out loud.
If you’re looking for a fact-heavy deep serious dive into murder and crime, this might not be the podcast for you, but if you’re looking for a good laugh and have an interest in true crime, then it might be exactly what you’re looking for!
You can find MFM wherever you listen to podcasts, and you don’t necessarily have to listen to them in order.
Until Next Time,
