Top Three Thursday- True Crime Podcasts

Not long ago, I hopped on the podcast bandwagon. Yep, I was super late to the game, but better late than never. Right? Here are my three favorites. Do you listen to podcasts? Which do you like best?

3. Someone Knows Something

'someone knows something'

This podcast works with victims’ family members to investigate cold cases. On the current season, the show looks into Donald Izzett Jr.’s disappearance. He’s been missing for 25 years. The last his mother spoke to him, he called her, crying and asking for money for a road trip, but before she could respond, the line went dead. She never heard from him again.

2. Dr. Death

This podcast covers medical malpractice cases. But I must say, every true crime podcast Wondery puts out is amazing. They’re well-researched and engrossing. You can’t go wrong with Wondery.

  1. Mystery and Murder: Analysis by Dr. Phil
Little Girl Lost: The Case of Erica Parsons | Mystery and Murder: Analysis  by Dr. Phil – Podcast – Podtail

Yes, Dr. Phil tops my list. I love his interviews with the family of victims and even the killers in some cases. The way he breaks the crimes down psychologically keeps me coming back for more.

Top Three Thursday- Monk Episodes

Since Monk landed in a Top Three Thursday post a while back, I thought I’d narrow down my three favorite episodes. Share your favorites in the comments!

3. Mr. Monk Visits a Farm- Season 5 Episode 14

Monk: "Mr. Monk Visits a Farm" Review - IGN

For some reason this episode makes me laugh out loud more than any other. Maybe it’s Monk’s constant references to ‘Fields of Reefer’ and his over the top fear of getting high by exposure. Or maybe it’s the fact that the poor man has literally no business on a farm. Either way, this one’s a gem.

2. Mr. Monk and the Kid- Season 3 Episode 16

This episode tore me apart. When Monk took little Tommy in after he discovered some severed fingers, the OCD detective bonded with the boy in a way that surprised me. And the grief when he had to return Tommy to foster care made my eyes sweat.

  1. Mr. Monk Gets Jury Duty- Season 4 Episode 16

Can you imagine being on a jury with a man who notices literally everything? It would stress and wow me in equal measure. Also, the way he convinced the other jurors to see things his way was impressive.
