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- Unsolved Mysteries

Do unsolved crimes bring out your inner Sherlock Holmes? Me too! Here are three cold cases that make me wish I could dig into police evidence rooms and get to work.

3. The Lizzie Borden

The Lizzie Borden Ax Murders That Shocked A Nation

Since Lizzie was acquitted, there must have been some reasonable doubt. But who killed Andrew and Abbie Borden? And why? I wonder if there’s a way to get my grubby mitts on the court records…

2. Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

Wouldn’t we all like to know what happened to this airplane and the 239 passengers on board? A man named Mr. Boyer believes he found the wreckage in Cambodia via satellite. The expedition team failed to reach the site due to its remote location. If I were more outdoorsy, I might try looking through the jungle myself.

3. JonBenet Ramsey

How JonBenét Ramsey's Murder Changed Pop Culture Forever - E! Online

I remember this case unfolding on the news when I was just a kid. The fact that someone killed this poor girl for who-knows-what reason and got away with it made my already anxiety-ridden mind all the more uneasy. I know the detectives ruled out the family members, but that leaves very few suspects. Of course, conspiracy theorists say JonBenet isn’t really dead and she became Katy Perry. So that’s weird.
