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.

Jesse Quaife ,

Awesome show!

Love the ad-free nature of the show. It’s also great how the narrator gets straight to the story and doesn’t beat around the bush with a lengthy introduction or intro tune. Only thing I would like to see is more details about each case, but I realise that that’s hard to do when releasing daily episodes!
