Crime never takes a day off, and neither does Parcast. Every day, we flip back the calendar and examine a true crime event from the same date. It might be the anniversary of an important case being solved, the end of a landmark trial, or a serial killer’s birthday-- whatever the date, there’s no ordinary day in true crime history. In each episode, we present a short true crime story, then analyze the impact of that historic day’s events. Today in True Crime is a Parcast Original, with new episodes daily.

Tokyo firebombing

Since when was that a crime?

Ok, not great

Pros: you get one episode a day, about 15-20 minutes long so it’s good to listen to while doing other stuff
Cons: the narration is terrible, very cringey and affected + really cheesy sound effects but that’s true for most of Parcast shows

Daily dose of True Crime!!

A true crime podcast that gives you short episodes EVERY DAY! Because the episodes are short the podcast doesn’t go too deep into the cases. But it’s fun to have new cases to google 🙂 Also, sound and production are pretty decent 👍🏻
