Sooooo great

This is the only black true crime podcast I’ll listen too. I feel informed and her voice is so soothing. This podcast are soooo great! Can’t stop listening !

Suspenseful & Captivating Podcast!

I am not usually a fan of podcasts and although I am intrigued by true crime, it is not what I tend to tune into. However, The Lost Crimes Library has somehow broken through those inclinations with intriguing and suspenseful storytelling. I always find myself on the edge of my seat saying, “OK… What happened next?! “… Waiting for that next captivating detail. I appreciate the respect that the host gives to each story and the care given in researching and highlighting the grave injustices and carelessness when it comes to crimes against black people. I value that she is willing to give voice to these lost stories!

Great research and the voice of an angel!

I don’t always listen to crime at night, but when I do, it’s going to be The Lost Crimes Library. It’s so important to highlight these crimes, the US has a history of trying to ignore and forget crimes committed against brown and black people - and worse, trying to cover them up! This podcast does a great job of presenting facts from the case, acknowledging speculation, and tying it all together into a story. The host has without a doubt, one of the most beautiful voices that just lends itself SO well to a true crime series. It’s a great podcast to add to your collection!
