The Best True Crime Comedy Podcasts By Women
It doesn't matter why we're obsessed with true crime, we just are
Why do women love true crime and all things scary? I think we can all agree, we need to know the worst possible outcome, so we can avoid it at all costs. It's like an addiction that we can't stop, we just can't look away. Serial killers, murder, missing persons, cold cases, haunted houses, paranormal encounters, aliens... We need all the deets pls.
So what's better than watching true crime documentaries? Yep, you bet, listening to a true crime podcast!!
Here are our top 4 women lead true crime podcast's, that will probably make you giggle, whilst they're telling you the darkest side of humanity.
First up we have RedHanded co-hosted by Hannah Maguire and Suruthi Bala. With over 200 episodes and additional bonus episodes, there is defo content for you to catch up on. Their British voices make you feel like everything is going to be okay, and we're here for it. Coming up in September their first book, "RedHanded: An Exploration of Criminals, Cannibals, Cults, and What Makes a Killer Tick" is set for release. So why not join the "Spooky Bitches" and plugin.
Next, we've got Morbid co-hosted by lifetime besties Ash and Alaina! And yes, Morbid is 100% the right word to describe the stories they tell. But with their witty charm and phrases like "hold onto your butts", you feel instantly at ease despite them telling you all things creepy. A fan has even made a Morbid meme Instagram page that accompanies each podcast episode perfectly.
If you're a crime junkie, then you should be listening to Crime Junkie.
