“Yet another true-crime podcast…”
The opening sentence in the description of Seriously, What the Frick? provides pretty good insight into the show. Is it that much different from the hundreds—heck, maybe even thousands—of true-crime podcasts out there? Probably not.
So, if you are a true-crime enthusiast looking for something just a little bit different, is it worth a listen? Probably.
As the host, Daphne, even mentions, she is “The most unserious person taking on serious cases.”
With no co-host or guests, Daphne has to carry the show on her own. For some podcast hosts, this can result in an exercise of the monotonous for the listeners. Fortunately, she doesn’t sit in front of a microphone simply reading from a script in a monotone voice. At least, it doesn’t sound like it.
She shares her shock and opinions on cases, which keeps the stories real and interesting. Fellow true-crime enthusiasts may also appreciate her tackling of some of the tough cases that other podcasts stay away from, like The Columbine Massacre. While the narration is a little clunky at times, Daphne does an admirable job of making the listener feel the horror that the victims must’ve felt.
If you’re looking for something just a little different, give Seriously, What the Frick? A listen.
