Brittany’s Top 5 True Crime Podcasts

Not only do I love podcasting, but I also love listening to podcasts! Today we are shaking things up a bit and talking about some of my favorite True Crime podcasts.

Up and Vanished (Season 1)

The Up and Vanished podcast is about a cold case in Georgia that goes through the disappearance of Georgia beauty queen and high school teacher Tara Grinstead. This case is an 11-year-old cold case that results in 2 arrests and a trial. How the case unravels is full of small details that are the key to putting the pieces in this case together.

Bear Brook

Bear Brook takes place in New Hamshire, involving two barrels, four bodies, and a mysterious killer. This cold case will blow your mind on how they utilize forensics and DNA to link the killer to the murders. This cold case changed the way investigations use DNA technology to solve cases.

Hell & Gone (Season 2)

Hell and Gone season 2 is my favorite season, although all three seasons are great. It is the story of 16-year-old Janie Ward, who mysteriously dies at a party in the woods in Marshall, Arkansas. No one has determined what or who killed her, making this a 30-year-old cold case that remains unsolved.


Bardstown is the story of five unsolved murders in the close-knit community of Bardstown. There have been five unsolved murders since 2013. They walk through each one and talk about how each of them is related. These are still open cases, and they continue to publish updates on the investigation.

Live & Die in LA

Live & Die in L.A. is about the mysterious disappearance of 25-year-old Adea Shabani, an aspiring actress and model that vanishes without a trace from her apartment complex near Hollywood’s famous Walk of Fame. Last seen in February of 2018, Shabani is a native of Macedonia. This story has many plot twists and has a crazy ending. If I missed any you felt are must listen, please leave them in the comments I’m always looking for another great True Crime podcast!
