My Favorite True Crime Shows

.

.

I have always been suuuper interested in true crime and

learning about serial killers is a passion of mine

(my favorite serial killer is H.H. Holmes.). Over the past few

months especially I have just been inhaling true crime show

after true crime show and man have I found some golden ones

and I need to share them with y’all! So in this article I am

sharing with you some of my favorite true crime

podcasts, documentaries, and tv shows and hopefully you find

some new shows to watch or listen to!

.

Podcasts

.

Morbid: A True Crime Podcast

The hosts on this show, Ash and Elaina are absolutely

hilarious. It is like you are sitting and talking with your crime

obsessed friends. They are very thorough in their research

so you will learn a LOT about each case and you will have a

great time doing it. I can’t tell you how many times I have been

listening to this podcast at work and had to hold back a laugh.

Shout out to my friend Nicole for telling me about this one!

.

Mile Higher

The hosts of this podcast, married couple Josh and

Kendall, have absolutely amazing chemistry, reliable

information, and you can tell that they are passionate about

what they are talking about. I also really like the variety

of episodes they have with some being paranormal, some true

crime, and even some about aliens! Lol 

.

Park Predators

My friend Kristin, who is a park ranger herself, actually

turned me on to this podcast and I listened to it for the

first time while I was out on my last vacation hiking through

various different national parks. I have to say hiking alone

through the national parks hearing about people that had

been kidnapped and/or killed in those same parks or ones

close by definitely heightened my true crime listening

experience, proven by the way I legit jumped if someone

came up behind me on a trail that I didn’t hear. Lol Overall, I really enjoy

this podcast and the host Delia D’Ambra does an amazing job.

.

And That’s Why We Drink

If you like “Morbid” you are definitely going to

like “And That’s Why We Drink.” The hosts on this show

remind me so much of the hosts of “Morbid” and I

absolutely LOVE them. They do a great job researching

the topics, even reading books in order to find the lesser known

facts about the cases, and I like their little bit where they talk

about what the other is drinking. Oh and they are absolutely

hilarious. #teammilkshake Sorry Christine.

.

Cult Liter

I used to love watching Glam and Gore on Youtube and

that was where I was introduced to the wonderful Mr. Spencer

Henry. I loved watching him go on ghost hunts with Mykie

and figured his podcast was going to be something worth

checking out and boy was I right (per usual lol). 

.

Documentaries

.

American Murder: The Family Next Door

This true crime story is shocking. I could not get over how

the suspect acted throughout the entire show and the

lengths he ended up going at the end. It takes a truly evil

person to be able to do the things he did.

.

The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness

I watched this documentary cause I saw it was trending on

Netflix and after watching it it is evident as to why. This was

a dang good documentary. I seriously sat and watched the

whole series in one sitting. I couldn’t turn it off!

.

Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes

As I mentioned in the intro I have a slight obsession with

serial killers so when I get to actually hear them talking, like in

the interviews in this show, I feel like a kid in a candy shop. I know….I’m weird. 

.

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness

Judge me all you want, but I couldn’t make this list without

putting this one on it. It was waaaay too popular to ignore

and honestly, a show I did thoroughly enjoy. Definitely

think Carole Baskin killed her husband. #justiceforTigerKing lol 

.

Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer

This was an extremely well done documentary on

Richard Ramirez, aka the Night Stalker. In this documentary

they focused on how they went about catching him, including

how they used his Avia shoe print and .22 gun to connect

him to various different kidnappings and murders. I really

liked all the interviews they had with the police and detectives

working the case and even one of his survivors. Definitely worth a watch. 

.

.

If like me you are a football fan these ones are definitely worth your time:

.

The People vs O.J. Simpson

This is another documentary that was trending on Netflix

for quite awhile and again it’s obvious why. I’m not old

enough to remember O.J. playing in the NFL or remember

his trial and the infamous car chase, but his story is so big

that I knew all about him before watching this documentary.

I think this show was really really well done and it was so

interesting to learn more about this story (and also see where

the Kardashians/Jenners got their claim to fame lol). BTW…he totally

did it. That glove SHRUNK. 

.

Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez

This documentary was the talk around work so I had to

watch it and man was it fascinating. It’s hard to imagine

why a successful man, well someone who seemed to be

very successful, would turn and commit murder and I think

this documentary does a great job of diving further

inside his mind and his potential reasons. 

.

TV Shows/Movies

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Zac Efron. Man. He did such a fantastic job playing Ted

Bundy in this show that it was almost scary. Casting

him was definitely a great choice and he did a perfect job

encapsulating the charm and confidence and craziness

of Bundy. Honestly his performance made the movie. One thing

to note is that this movie focuses more on Bundy, his life, and

what made him do the things he did and doesn’t really go

into much detail on the murders he committed so if you are looking

for something that goes into more details about what he did to

his victims I know both “Morbid” and “And That’s Why We

Drink” have great episodes on him.

.

Mindhunter (Netflix)

This show is so stinking good. I LOVE it. I will admit that

it is a little on the slow side, but since I am a HUGE serial

killer lover that definitely doesn’t bother me. I love the

conversation scenes with the Co-Ed killer Edmund

Kemper….tbh he might be my favorite character in the show. Lol 

.

Dirty John (Netflix)

This is why I have trust issues…well one of the many

reasons. Lol This show was so easy to binge and while

I am not at all surprised that the events that occurred in this

show were based on real life events there were sooo

many moments where I was just like “oh DANNNNNNNG.” I will

recommend this show until I am blue in the face. 

.

The Act (Hulu)

This show features what I would consider to be one of the

most astonishing true crime cases I have ever heard of. Like

how in the world was she able to get away with

everything for so long?! Crazy woman. 

.

Big Sky (Hulu)

Okay so this one isn’t actually based on any real life crimes

buuuuuut I think it is one of the best crime dramas out

there and it is honestly something I could see happening

so I figured I would include it anyway for funzies. Lol
