CRIMINAL – a crime podcast
I just discovered CRIMINAL, a podcast about crime. Well, when I say discovered, I mean Dan Hill told me about it. Because he’s a guy with feelers out in the wild. Unlike me.
I love a well curated podcast that inspires and informs me. This American Life and RadioLab are the two golden standards. They cover random stories and science and they deliver the goods every time. I now add to them something else that’s perfect for me because it’s about crime. And I dig crime. I certainly write about/around it, so I know the months to come of listening to this podcast will truly keep my brain ticking along.
Criminal is like This American Life if every story/episode were centred around crime in some way. In other words, this podcast is perfect for me. It’s well spoken, well structured, interesting as all heck, and isn’t that long each episode. The ability to tune in quickly – usually while doing housework lately – and get a little strange crime in my ears is perfect. I don’t have time to trawl sites anymore, or keep up to date, or heaven forbid read a crime book, but I can get my podcast on while other things get done and this keeps my brain in the right frame of mind, my reference levels constantly overflowing, and my pulse racing.
So thanks to Dan Hill for putting me onto it. I’m so impressed I’m writing about it just in the hope anyone like me out there finds it as soon as possible because you need it in your life. A great crime podcast, I didn’t have one in my life before, now I have one for life. I hope it runs for 100 episodes, and many more.
