So, if you’re looking for a collection of binge-worthy TRUE CRIME podcasts, then check out my list of the Top 9 Must-Listen Podcasts for True Crime Lovers.
Up & Vanished is a binge-worthy, heart pounding listen. Season one follows the case of Tara Grinstead, a beauty queen and teacher in a small Georgia town that disappeared one night back in 2005. Host Payne Lindsay blows this case wide open.
There’s been a Television special on this case, and Payne has been featured on many talk shows discussing this case, and season two, the disappearance of Kristal Reisinger, a woman that disappeared from a small town in Colorado.
Dr. Death tells the story of Christopher Duntsch, a surgeon that was convicted of gross malpractice after several of his patients were severely injured or dead after operating on them. This case may open your eyes to the politics within the healthcare system.
Now a television series starring Eric Bana, Dirty John is a podcast about John Meehan, a master manipulator who set his eyes on Debra Newell, a very wealthy woman in California.
