Crime Junkie is a weekly podcast dedicated to exploring true crime cases.
In the last few years, the internet has certainly developed a morbid fascination with true crime stories. Many documentaries and videos have covered infamous cases, unsolved cases, and even mysterious disappearances. Crime Junkie is perfect for people who are intrigued by true crime cases; for the ones who listen to cold cases and solved murder cases instead of music at the gym. It’s perfect for people who love mystery books and detective stories.
Crime Junkie has remained at the top of the charts since its debut in 2017. It has had over 500 million downloads and 600+ stories. Moreover, it has donated hundreds of thousands donated to charities.
Each week, the hosts, Ashley and Brit, take a deep dive into a true crime case, all in approximately 30 minutes. They cover mysterious cases, missing people, murder cases, and more. The podcast certainly has several ‘fan-favourite’ episodes. For instance: The Powell Family, Darlie Routier, Laci Peterson, and L.I.S.K.
The storytelling is extremely straightforward, easy to follow, and free of tangents. If true crime stories appeal to you, then be sure to give Crime Junkie a listen on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
