    Introducing - Families Who Kill: The Donut Shop Murders

    Introducing - Families Who Kill: The Donut Shop Murders

    In the era of some of the most heinous serial killers of all time, one murderous family went curiously unnoticed: The McCrarys. Led by a psychopathic patriarch and his cunning son-in-law, this Texas clan roamed the country robbing, kidnapping, and killing up to 20 people, most of them taken from donut shops.

    “Families Who Kill: The Donut Shop Murders” recounts the wild and deeply disturbing story of an unhinged American family and the terrible brutality they unleashed. The podcast features the taped confessions of one of the killers, given when he was serving a life term in Colorado.

    TTCE's Series 6 - In Review

    Once again, I've sat down with a spare half an hour, and have gone back through the tales that have made up Series 6 of the show, and once again like the shit DVD Extras and commentary that no one ever really listens to, have given my own thoughts and feelings, perhaps a bit of an aside here and there also, to each case we have covered this year on the regular show in a rough as a badgers arse, totally unscripted manner - even Peaks features in it.

    I thank you all for your very kind support this year, my favourite series to have done to date, and i look forward to seeing you very soon in 2022. All the very best wishes, stay safe out there.

    Paul (TTCE) + Peaks (TTCE-cat)

    The Good Samaritan - Part 2

    The Good Samaritan - Part 2

    The concluding part of the Series 6 finale tale from The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast drops here, continuing from the events we heard in the first part - where we met a young woman named India Eve Chipchase - who sadly, back in 2016, never made it home from a Friday night out in Northampton.

    So let's meet the man - India's Good Samaritan - who stood accused of her rape and murder, for his trial - and I'm sure you won't believe the account he was to give.

    The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events, including that of a sexual nature, that some listeners may find disturbing, and or upsetting, so discretion is advised whilst listening.

    Introducing - Killer Psyche

    Introducing - Killer Psyche

    What causes people to become killers?

    KILLER PSYCHE is a true crime podcast from Wondery that covers high-profile cases that shocked the world. Host Candice Delong uses her experience as a clinical psychiatric nurse and FBI Criminal Profiler to dissect the motivations and behaviors of the most terrifying criminals in history. In a recent episode, Candice explores the case of Pedro Rodrigues Filho, also known as The Brazilian Dexter. Rodrigues went on to murder, by his count, more than 100 people -- most of them while he was behind bars.

    To many, he was a hero -- a vigilante seeking justice for victims. But to others, he was just a cold-blooded murderer.

    This is just a preview of Killer Psyche, but you can listen to the full episode at:

    The Good Samaritan - Part 1

    The Good Samaritan - Part 1

    On a night out, we can all enjoy ourselves - and we can all sometimes have that bit too much to drink. Usually, we have our mates there to help us out, to stick by us. But occasionally we get separated - I'm sure it has happened to most of us in our lives.

    So occasionally then, we may need to rely on the kindness of others - a Good Samaritan if you like. And most of the time, this is what they are.

    For the first part of the Series 6 finale episode of The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast, we hear just how much this is, most of the time.

    The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events, including that of a sexual nature, that some listeners may find disturbing, and or upsetting, so discretion is advised whilst listening.

    Mistakes

    No crime should ever happen, but for the penultimate episode of Series 6 of The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast, we head back to 2016 and to the West Midlands market town of Bilston, to hear of a horrendous - a truly horrific crime, that really shouldn't have.

    Because it could have been prevented.

    The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events, including that of a sexual nature, that some listeners may find disturbing, and or upsetting, so discretion is advised whilst listening.

Well researched and well told!

Just found The True Crime Enthusiast podcast yesterday and I have already listened to the first three episodes! It’s a very well researched and presented podcast, the cases are lesser known and the writing well paced. Paul has a natural talent for storytelling. This will be added to my rotation alongside Crime Junkies, Redhanded, and Murder Most Irish.

Stand out podcast

As a podcast listener of true crime, it’s always exciting to discover a new podcast that you find yourself really enjoying. The kind that has a way of having your full attention. And over time, you notice a podcast that stands out to you above the rest, one that truly deserves a 5 Star rating and recognition…praised for their work and ability to tell a story…..and True Crime Enthusiast is that stand out 5 star podcast. From the moment I start listening to an episode, I find myself being fully immersed to the story…absolutely effortlessly.
Suddenly, cleaning and washing dishes really isn’t so bad 😁
So ..I thank you Paul, for doing what you do. You truly shine at your job.
I also love how you sometimes will say the most hilarious things 😂 making me burst out into laughter.

My favorite podcast

I love The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast. Stories are interesting, well researched, and well written. They are often obscure cases with lots of twists and turns. The host has a perfect storytelling voice and delivery. His personality is a big plus.
