True Crime Podcasts

There actually aren’t that many true crime podcasts, but here are the main ones:

True Murder by Dan Zupansky

This is the podcast for of a live show on BlogTalkRadio. Probably the granddaddy of true crime podcasts. Each episode is an hour plus, and they often focus on serial killers. Each episode (except for the occasional scheduling conflict) consists of an interview with a true crime author about a particular killer. Very in depth, and quite detailed.

Behind the Yellow Tape

Covers forensic and investigative issues. I’ve heard this is really good, but I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet.

Talk Forensics

Excellent show about the breadth of forensic sciences. Unfortunately, no longer recording.

Crime, Science, and Information

By defense attorney Christine Funk, the show looks at crime from the perspective of the defense attorney, especially as forensic sciences apply. Hasn’t released a show in a while, but Ms. Funk is a busy attorney, so I suppose that’s to be expected. Hope she gets back to it soon!

Crime Classics

This is the podcast version of a show from the 1950’s on CBS. Haven’t actually listened to it yet.


Podcast for all the Riperologists out there. I’m not really one of them, so I haven’t listened to it yet. Probably will if I ever get caught up on everything else. New episodes are posted very sporadically at this point.

Investigation Discovery Video Podcast

Seems to be promos for the television channel.

If you know of any I’ve missed, please let me know.
