Conversations #1: True-Crime Podcasts

So we are starting a new segment for the podcast called "Conversations." These episodes will feature various topics, whether it's podcasts, current issues, other books we're reading and much much more. We may not all be in the episode together and we might even have special guests!

For our first one, Sarah and I talk about some of our favorite and newly discovered true-crime podcasts. This one got a little bit away from us but only because we could talk podcasts for hours. That's no joke you guys. But we promise in the future to try and keep these to 30-40 minutes.

As promised in the episode, here are all the podcasts we talked about if you want to check them out. If you like true crime stories, then you definitely should. Apologies in advance for probably getting some things wrong or pronouncing names wrong. We'll do better about our research next time, work and life kept us pretty busy this week so our research slacked a little bit.

If you want to sip on the wine we were drinking during the episode: 19 Crimes

Serial Season One
Someone Knows Something
Lore
My Favorite Murder
