10 True Crime Podcasts to Listen to by the Bonfire this Halloween
(Evergreen Podcasts, 2022) - Are you feeling spooky? If not, have no fear (well…not yet)!
This curated list of Killer Podcasts will get you in the mood for all things Halloween.
Grab a hot beverage, some marshmallows, and be ready to be entertained by these eight spine-tingling stories while you sit fire-side.
This is a new show just added to the Evergreen Network and it’s a podcast hosted by two female true crime enthusiasts who aim to bring us untold stories of crimes committed by serial killers.
Hosts Wendy Williams and Beth Wiliams started Fruitloops over their love of true crime podcasts and their realization that the true crime space was lacking diverse female voices, as well as diverse stories. Rather than just waiting around for that kind of show to magically appear, they decided to create it themselves.
At this CrimeCon live taping, Beth and Wendy talk about Queho, a Native American man from the Las Vegas area of Nevada. Queho has been credited with the deaths of 23 people in the early 20th century. He was declared Nevada’s “Public Enemy No. 1,” and the state’s first mass murderer. But was he really?
This podcast, hosted by Evergreen producer Bill Huffman, provides a voice for the voiceless. Everyone deserves to know the truth about what really happened to their loved ones, and this podcast shines a light on cases that may have been forgotten over time.
We recommend starting at the beginning of this series with the first season Who Killed Amy Mihaljevic, where Bill provides an in-depth look at this local case that shook his childhood.
As a Cleveland-based production house, Evergreen would be remiss to skip our local favorite, Ohio Mysteries. In this podcast, Paula and Steve explore the many diverse mysteries of the Buckeye State. From disappearances and unsolved homicides, to cryptids, missing treasures and UFO sightings.
This episode showcases a rivalry as old as time: Ohio v. Michigan. Tune in to learn more about the origins of this feud and tales of the Toledo War.
