Podcast Review: Murder in the Rain

Murder in the Rain

There are a few areas in the world where we just expect wild things to happen – the Bermuda Triangle, Everest, Florida, and other well known mysterious areas. An area we don’t often talk about as a focus of true crime is the Pacific Northwest in the United States. It’s named after the geographic region bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Rocky Mountains on the east. Oregon, Idaho, and Washington are the states you can think of in this area. This region has been occupied by a diverse array of cultures for thousands of years. With some much history, this region is the perfect setting for a true-crime podcast, and where Murder In the Rain focuses much of their efforts.


What listener’s will find so addicting about Murder in the Rain upon pushing play is an absolute passion and love for what they do. There is no denying that podcasters, by nature, are passionate people. However, true crime podcasts seem to always have that next level of passion for what they do, and the team at Murder in the Rain exemplifies this. 

Hosts Emily and Alisha present their podcast in a fantastic narrative form and do a great job of incorporating authors, psychologists, detectives, and other special guests along the way. Admittedly, I was instantly drawn in from the sound quality and audio production done by show producer Josh. This trio clearly loves true crime and are highly interested in the topics discussed.

Since launching in April of 2019, Murder in the Rain has not been afraid of changing their format up either and a reason why they are a top podcast. The length of the episodes on average is 45 minutes, with many of them stretching beyond as they may need to serve the material. But what they have done successfully is not to commit to a certain style of the podcast. There are a variety of 2 parter episodes, case discussions with authors, victim advocate interviews, and other types of pods. Most recently, they shared a 90-minute episode that covered 3 different unsolved cases that all happened around bodies of water. Of course, that was to help kick off the summer and is one of the best true crime podcasts.
