Crime Junkie

One thing Crime Junkie is not lacking in is passion. Hosts Ashley Flowers and Brit do in fact, represent the name of the podcast very well. Crime Junkie finds a great synergy between storytelling, investigative, and discussion. The episodes are very efficient and will keep you interested the whole way through.

As previously mentioned, Ashley Flowers is a self-proclaimed true crime junkie, who lives and breathes each case that is covered. She even supports these investigations as a member of the board of directors for the Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana. Her cohost, Brit, also has a substantial background in fandom and has even worked for a private investigator. They are upfront in marketing that they aren’t experts – but you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference (at least I can’t).

Needless to say, their background creates for well-researched material and thought-provoking discussions. Their material is a variety of some cases you may have heard of and some that are lesser known. Sometimes the episodes themselves can feel flat, however, the brevity makes up for any long-winded moments. The production is good, with soundscapes being played through each episode, although it is sometimes unneeded. Overall, it’s a solid true crime listen done by 2 fans that truly enjoy the art of true crime storytelling.
