I recently was a guest on the Crawlspace podcast where I joined my friends Lance Reenstierna and Tim Pilleri to discuss serial killers including the Zodiac Killer and the Golden State Killer. We discussed some true crime topics in general, and had a great discussion.
Here’s how it went-
Tim and Lance are the same guys that have the Missing Maura Murray podcast, which has been a true crime sensation. The Maura Murray case will soon be making it’s way to television and will be the subject of a documentary. Be sure to check them out.
To my readers, I’d like to invite you to come along on a true crime journey as I co-host a brand new true crime podcast called Criminology. My co-host is Mike Ferguson, who you might know from his current podcast, True Crime All the Time.
A quick update on the Delphi murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams.
Sadly, there is not much of an update other than to say that the case is essentially cold. I was pretty excited that there was such an all out public effort nationwide to catch this killer and with audio & video evidence of who killed them, I thought Abby’s and Libby’s murders may have been solved by now but that has not happened.
I’ve been saying for weeks now that more photos, video, or audio is needed here. Something that shows the body language of this suspect or more of his voice may be the missing piece of the puzzle but police don’t seem to want to do this, and I hope it’s not at the peril of this case being solved. My fear is that 5 years or 10 years from now, they decide to release something that they have kept close to the vest but by then the case is forgotten, and potential witnesses and suspects move away,die, etc
One positive update is that there is finally a podcast about this case that has been put out by True Crime Garage and I encourage anybody reading this to give it a listen. They have an excellent podcast and I am sure that they will give this case the attention it deserves, I am listening to it today.
I ask that you keep this case in the spotlight by sharing via social media and if you have any tips or information, please contact the Indiana State Police.
Update 7/18/17 Authorities have released a sketch of the perpetrator

I typed true crime podcast into Google. I got over 5 million results, and that number will only go higher in the future. The true crime podcast niche is alive and well, and there’s a huge demand for more. There’s no shortage of shows to listen to and more are coming!
Podcasts and podcasting are quite popular right now as it’s a relatively easy way to reach out to a broad audience with a message. Best of all, the people that you are reaching out to are wanting to hear what you have to say. There are podcasts about everything under the sun. If you want to talk about a subject, rest assured, somebody out there wants to hear about it. When it comes to the true crime genre, there’s plenty of podcasts to give true crime junkies their fix. Some podcasts feature a panel of hosts, a pair of hosts, or a single host. Some of these podcasts are well done and take a lot of work to produce. Some may not be as polished or well-made, but just about every show seems to have steady and loyal listeners. Every potential listener is a different person with a unique personality, so having variety when it comes to true crime podcasts is a good thing as there truly is something for everybody out there. Some people like their true crime delivered in a somber and professional manner while others like some laughs sprinkled into the show and even maybe a little wine or beer with their episodes.
I myself am working on a true crime podcast, and I’ll be a little fish in a big pond if I am ever ready to launch it. It’s exciting but a little scary too. Before making the plunge, I wanted to explore the true crime podcast phenomenon and see what was driving it and what it’s like behind the scenes. Who better to reach out to than some of my favorite podcasts? I’m not a partner of any of the shows listed below, and I’m not being paid to advertise for them. These are just a few of my personal favorite true crime podcasts. I reached out to them and they replied, and here’s the results.
