Prash’s Murder Map
Do you remember what it was like to see people? Or have fun? Or even travel? If you can’t tell already, quarantined life has driven me a bit nutty. One of my favorite things to do in life is travel across the globe, and I haven’t been able to do that physically, but I have found a way for my imagination to take me there. Thanks to Prash’s Murder Map.
A few weeks ago, a friend recommended Prash’s Murder Map. Each week Prash’s covers a new case across the globe. It is a new podcast out of the UK, but the content and quality of the podcast is far from amateur. When I heard my first episode, I assumed the podcast already had 50 episodes, or that Prash had a previous podcasting life. I was surprised and delighted to find out the podcast started a few months ago in March of 2020.
Prash’s Murder Map is hosted by, you guessed it, Prash. Who each week transports listeners each week to a new place, and sometimes time. His episode about the German WW2 Serial Killer got me hooked. He has a knack for storytelling, and spends time explaining the physical and cultural settings. Not only does he provide a ton of facts about the case, but he even uses some voice acting during his narration. It is perfectly placed in the episodes and is sure to keep listeners hooked throughout the episode.
I am also impressed with how timely his episodes are. One listener recommended a little-known case in Australia, and Prash covered the case fully in the next week. His latest episode covers a serial killer in South Africa known as the South African strangler. Prash discusses the psychological effects of being raised in a society with legal racism and how that drove this Ted Bundy wannabe to kill 38 people.
Prash is a multi-talented podcaster who has created our newest favorite podcast at Podfluence. If you are looking for an escape this weekend checks it out. I am excited to look back in a few years and show this article to prove I was a fan of Prash’s Murder Map before the bandwagon!
