This podcast proves that real life gives us stories that are at least as weird, creepy, and exciting as any crime fiction writer could invent. This is truly as described: “A podcast for the morbidly curious. From serial killers to ghosts, ancient curses to obscure medical conditions…”
The episodes are really well-researched and presented and fabulously interesting. On the theory that curiosity, once fed, only gets hungrier, each episode has book recommendations to go with it. If you become a patron of the podcast through Patreon, you also get access to exclusive content, experiences and merchandise.
The jury is out amongst listeners as to whether the narrators voice is soothing and easylistening, or whether it is monotonous to the point of ruining the listening experience. I did not listen to every episode of the podcast (although I am considering a binge listen), but did tune into the few episodes that received lower reviews from fans who felt the narration was monotonous.
I would have given the podcast a five-star rating across the board, except that in a few of the episodes, the narrator does forget to modulate her voice. Otherwise, this is such a fun podcast for anyone who loves detective stories and mysteries as well as history.
(Some episodes may not be appropriate for children. Listener discretion is advised.)
