True Crime Podcasts by Steph Mullin and Nicole Mabry, authors of The Family Tree

When people think of true-crime media these days, podcasts jump to the forefront of many of our minds. Over recent years, we have seen podcasts help re-open investigations, crowdsource clues from armchair detectives, and even lead to solving cold cases. They have also brought to light injustices and false imprisonments, as well as given voices to untold amounts of victims. One of the first podcasts on the scene to make a splash was famously Serial, followed by Undisclosed diving even deeper into the murder of Hae Min Lee and conviction of Adnan Syed. Then, came the age of the ‘Murderinos’. We had always been lurking in the shadows, but the podcast My Favorite Murder brought us all out in droves to openly and honestly discuss our fascination with true crime. On a personal note, being Murderinos has brought us an invaluable writing group, friends across the world who share our interests, and even, helped grab the attention of a Murderino editor in another country who ended up helping secure our book publishing contract after spotting us in a Twitter pitch contest. To celebrate our love for true-crime journalism and media, here are five more crime podcasts worth a listen.
