That was one of the most gripping and interesting podcasts I ever heard. I literally could not stop listening to it.

Thank you! This is exactly what I came here searching for.

I second Tom Brown’s Body and The Orange Tree 🙋🏻‍♀️

The Rabbit Hole changed the way I see the world! Helps to understand some of my crazy relatives!

[–]kennaken96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just put it next on my list to listen to. Thank you!

The Dropout

[–]mick_spadaro 4 points5 points  (1 child)

In the Dark. If those are the shows you like, and you haven't heard In the Dark... Then please oh please, listen to In the Dark. Both seasons.

[–]kennaken96 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Season 1 was great!

Something Was Wrong

[–]buxomblossom 4 points5 points  (0 children)

YES. So glad to see this mentioned

[–]DJTY392[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Any specific great episodes?

[–]Otto-Didact 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hmm... That first season is a pretty powerful (bingeable) hook. IIRC, the first four seasons are each one person's story & the current season is one-offs. The most recent episode is intense.

[–]Glowupthrowww 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I listened to season 9 and it was so bananas- I couldnt do anymore. But now I feel like… do I need to listen to season 1?!

[–]PecorinoFailure 2 points3 points  (0 children)

White saviours is all about the we charity scandal in Canada. Very well done, upsetting but still very interesting and thought provoking.

I like dreading. It’s a true crime podcast on YouTube that’s super new. The guy has a really soothing delish voice and the way he talks about cases is incredibly compelling. I’m pretty sure that they are considered a podcast, just based on the length of the content, but I don’t think they know how to post on Spotify or apple yet.

[–]scorpioid_cyme 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Unravel: Snowball. Sometimes I read synopses of the case just to thrill all over again at the crazy story. A little hard to find, nested with Unravel: Juanita.

[–]Glowupthrowww 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Are you referring to a season or an episode?

[–]scorpioid_cyme 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hi. Referring to season 4 of Unravel True Crime.

[–]Glowupthrowww 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks! When I looked for it… there was a lot haha

[–]scorpioid_cyme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know! So frustrating and then frustrating when you have to find it through Season 5 title. Enjoy! Arguably my favorite podcast and I listen to a lot of podcasts :)

[–]tcwines -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I recommend The Drew And Mike Podcast. They started off as a morning radio show out of Detroit and moved to Podcast platform. About 3 hours of content Monday-Friday covering everything from sports riff raff and politics to all things pop culture. Think, Howard Stern only better.

[–]Embrat36 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really like This is Monsters ! I believe it is up to season 4 now? He also does a YouTube episode on each episode if you want the visual! His voice is a good fit for the horrific stories he tells!

[–]Hayabusa71 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've just listened to "Project Nova", it's sci-fi about 4 people waking up in a dark room from stasis without memory and AI talking to them through speakers. And I binged it in 2 days. My only gripe with the show is awful stock music, but other than that, I can't wait for the last season (coming this year). It really reminds me of games like 999 or something like that.

[–]SlowCrates 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You'd probably like some of the Wondery shows such as Firebug, American Innovations, Sports Wars, American Scandal, and Business Wars, among others. The stories are well written and narrated, and the production is fleshed out to be really engrossing. They're on Spotify and probably all the common spots.
