This podcast is hosted by Sarah Koenig from This American Life, and investigates a different topic each season. The first season focused on a murder case from Baltimore of a young high schooler named Hae Min Lee. She investigates the case put together that accused the then ex-boyfriend Adnan Sayed, who is currently in jail on the charges. Season 2 is a totally different topic, and analyses the story and background of missing POW Bowe Bergdahl.
So I know that we are about to hear season Three from them, but I am honestly more interested in hearing how their updates from their Season 1 case is going. In case you missed my post on that, you can read my original post on Serial about it here.
2. Young House Love
This podcast is hosted by bloggers John and Sherry from the blog Young House Love.
Frankly, I love their blog the most, but their most recent adventures into podcasts have been hilarious. It really feels like I am sitting in their living room hearing these two down-to earth happily married couple talk about DIY, reno’s and their recently purchased dilapidated beach house. They are so cute, funny, and I want to be their best friend.
3. Up and Vanished
So its a great cold case podcast led by an amateur investigator Payne Lindsey. It focuses on a high school teacher and former beauty queen named Tara Grinstead, who went missing in 2005 from her small home-town in Georgia. He is still airing current episodes as he further investigates this cold case. I really liked this podcast, but I’ve struggled with how many ads are in it. He does not have the backing of a radio company, or a blog, instead he is an independent film-maker that is doing this on his own.
This podcast is hosted by a reporter from the Cincinatti Enquierer , as she investigate the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Andes in December of 1978 in her college apartment in Oxford Ohio.
So I liked the first few episodes of this podcast, and then she takes a left turn and investigates other killers, serial killers and it got a little creepy and weird for me. But overall I liked it well enough to continue listening, I just skipped over some parts as it was a little scary for me. She has announced that she will be doing a second season, on a different cold case. So when that airs I will listen to it.
Do you listen to any podcasts? Do you like them? Any I should listen to? What do you like to do when you listen to a podcast? I love them for when I’m running, doing errands cooking or doing the dishes!
