    Recently discovered "What Happened To Holly Bartlett". A look into the death of a clever, personable, intelligent young grad student... who also happened to be blind.

    WHITE LIES
    AN INVESTIGATIVE PODCAST FROM NPR


    "In 1965, a white minister was murdered in Selma, Alabama. For more than 50 years, witnesses buried the truth about what happened.

    Explore a visual narrative of the facts, then listen to the podcast to hear how we finally set the record straight.

    This is the story of a murder at the center of the civil rights movement and the lies that kept it from being solved. It’s an event that rippled far beyond the time and place where it happened, sparking national outrage and galvanizing support for one of the most significant laws of the 20th century.

    This narrative uses audio and documents recorded and printed in 1965. Some images may be disturbing. We’ve chosen not to censor offensive language..."

    White Lies
    ----

    James Reeb

    "James Reeb (January 1, 1927 – March 11, 1965) was an American Unitarian Universalist minister, pastor, and activist during the Civil rights movement in Washington, D.C. and Boston, Massachusetts. While participating in the Selma to Montgomery marches actions in Selma, Alabama, in 1965, he was murdered by white segregationists, dying of head injuries in the hospital two days after being severely beaten...."

    For those of you who like Crime Junkie, I recently discovered Morbid. It's awesome. Hosted by two hilarious ladies. I highly recommend.

    I just discovered this podcast and am really enjoying it. Different cases and the ones I have listened to are only about 30 minutes long.
    The host/co-creator is Phoebe Judge who has worked in public radio and has a pleasant voice. (NPR voice!!)

    Ok, coming back with more. I don't think I saw these listed so far (might be one or two duplicates).

    I have so many to list here, I am not going to put summaries of them.

    My main criteria for liking a podcast are that the voice of the narrator does not hurt my ears, and the case(s) they cover are interesting. I am ok with beginner podcasts where the production is not fancy as long as the case is good. The list below meet my criteria.

    These are all single case poscasts:

    The Lady Vanishes
    Case Closed
    Faded out - season 1 and 2 focus on two different cases
    Death in Ice Valley
    Gangster Capitalism
    The Ballad of Billy Balls
    Dear Franklin Jones
    Shattered
    Problem Child
    Root of Evil
    Maddie
    Route 29 Stalker
    Bomber
    The Teacher's Pet
    13: The Search for Leigh Occi
    - podcast continues with new title: 13:2 Down in Mississippi
    The Drop Out
    Without Warning
    Secrets True Crime
    Unconcluded

    Multiple Case Podcasts:

    Locations Unknown
    Survival
    Mysteriously Missing
    Unfound

    I think @rachelgoldcrossley means True Crime BS, about Israel Keyes.

    I listened to almost all the episodes of TCBS--one has come out since then--in two days at work, and thought TCBS was very well done and remarkably interesting. "Thumbs up" to the TCBS crew! Though there are a bundle of true crime podcasts, and some of my favorites aren't going to be other people's favorites, and vice versa.

    My most recent favorite is THE LONG DANCE. It is only about 8 episodes, so easy to get through. A couple was murdered in Durham, NC. There were 3 good suspects, it was an unusual murder of two good kids. One of the suspects, a doctor, alive and living the good life. It was a lifelong obsession case for some wonderful investigators, but it has not been solved yet. It needs to be, because these were two great kids.

    I really enjoyed The Long Dance (maybe I mentioned it on this thread earlier, if not I certainly meant to!).

    I went into TCBS thinking I wouldn't like it but... How wrong I was! Keyes was chilling. I wonder if we will ever know all the horror he inflicted.

    And, thanks for the update about Boudet returning to S & S, Dixiegirl!

    Agreed. The Mississippi Cold Case was amazing and actually resulted in a prosecution of a cold case.

    Killafornia Dreaming is a personal favorite. Man In The Window is shaping up to be a good one as well. Canadian True Crime is good as well. Cheers.

    There's a new podcast about William Tyrrell called Where's William Tyrrell ‎Where's William Tyrrell? on Apple Podcasts

    For those not acquainted with the case he's an Australian boy who went missing in late 2014 and is still missing, basically without a trace. There's a long chain of threads about the case here on WS but a lot of non-Australian WSers might have overlooked it. It's a good time to get in on the case with this new podcast and the upcoming coronial inquiry in August.
