After listening to thousands of hours of true crime podcasts, we narrowed down the playlist to the absolute best!

Host Karen Smith is a retired major case forensic investigator in Jacksonville, Florida. Karen retells cases that she covered in great depth in her career. You will feel Karen took you on a ride and dragged you into the crime scene with her. It’s truly terrifying.

This podcast is addictive, especially if you love a good true scary story. If that’s the case, I guarantee you will want to binge-listen to over 5 years of recording time in months.

Radio Rental is a scripted show that takes place in a fictional 90’s vibe video store that has a secret VHS collection of spooky stories.

The show is hosted by investigative reporter Payne Lindsey who spends anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour on each episode on a missing person’s case.
