The 9 Newest & Most Popular True-Crime Episodes For Your Holiday Travel
We here at Parry are big true-crime fans (true-crime podcasts were an influence in the “why” of our women’s safety app) so naturally, we consume a lot of different true-crime podcast episodes. And with the holidays upon us, a lot of people are flying, driving, taking a train, or walking to see friends and family which means there’s road time for podcasts. Also, a moment of silence for all the people who got their holidays ruined by covid (again) and are spending the holiday family and friend-less.
Either way, we wanted to provide the most recent AND the most popular true-crime episodes currently available for streaming or download. If you’re a book person instead of podcasts, we wrote another blog article about the 5 top-rated true-crime books if you’re interested.
The list below includes familiar faces in the true-crime podcast scene along with some others you may have not listened to yet. So without further ado, here are the 9 newest and most popular true-crime episodes for your holiday travel (or staycation).
