Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. We're a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX, a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven shows.

Consistently excellent

I discovered this show only a month or so ago and I am happily making my way through each episode. I was expecting an expanded version of what we have on the news every day and it is the total opposite - thanks to the talent that produces this show. The range of issues coming under the heading of “criminal” is phenomenal. Some are shocking, some funny, many intensely moving. All are impossible to stop listening to once begun, I need to be careful I’m loitering near the player before they finish if I want to drag myself away! The level of integrity and investigation taken to present complete and deep stories puts Criminal right up with the top podcasts available. Massive thanks to Phoebe and the team for making each episode with so much heart. And anyone wondering about this show - just pick an episode and get started, you can’t go wrong.

Best podcast around

Everyone needs some Phoebe Judge in their lives. This podcast combines stellar journalism with beautiful storytelling and unique takes on very human stories. Can’t recommend enough. Just don’t blame me when you get withdrawals from her dulcet tones.
