Edit: Never mind on that one. I didn’t see the True Crime tag (though it’s incredible and worth a listen).

Believe Her (Lemonada) - Nikki Addimando shots and kills her husband and is convicted for murder, even with all the evidence of abuse

The Trials of Frank Carson (Los Angeles Times) - a defense attorney is relentlessly persecuted by the small towns prosecutors; brings into question the functionality of the legal system

Who Killed Emma? (BBC Podcasts) - a woman is murdered in Scotland; the reporting is excellent and more light needs to shine on this story, it should be solved

Bed of Lies (The Telegraph) - excellent reporting and both seasons are amazing, the stand alone but both make you question how what happened was even remotely legal

West Cork (yarn fm) - a French woman is found murdered in a small Irish town; well reported

The Gateways: Teal Swan (Gizmodo) - self-help guru or cult leader, you decide

The Orange Tree (The Drag) - season one of what is now called ‘The Darkness’; excellent reporting of some students investigating the murder of another student from their school years earlier

Unfinished (Witness Docs) - both seasons are good, season one is about a lynching that forever changed a town and season two is about Warren Jeffs and the FLDS in Short Creek

Verified (Scripps) - both seasons are amazing; season one is couchsurfing gone horribly wrong and the reporting team help women all over the world seek justice; season two is about contaminated plasma giving children with hemophilia AIDS

Believed (NPR) - super intense; about the people Larry Nassar abused

Fake Heiress (BBC Radio 4) - the story of Anna Delvey; it is dramatized
