Seriously, you need to keep up with these.
We love true crime here at Marie Claire, but there are some things a Lifetime TV movie just cannot capture. Because they’re often easier to produce than a TV show, podcasts are the new frontier of this genre, allowing listeners to go deep on cases, form their own theories, and occasionally even help out the investigators in real-time. The best true crime podcasts are ones that ultimately say something about society in general, and those are the ones rounded up below.
Here are 20 of the best true crime podcasts currently on. Most of them came out in 2019, though a few wrapped up their most recent seasons last year. Either way, there’s plenty to binge-listen to on your next long road trip or train ride or just, you know, Sunday.
