“Criminal is the NPR of crime podcasts. You learn something new every time.”
– San Francisco Chronicle
Criminal is an award-winning podcast about true crime. Stories of people who’ve done wrong, been wronged, or gotten caught somewhere in the middle.
Criminal launched January of 2014, and new episodes come out twice a month, always on Fridays.
Criminal is one of the most popular podcasts in the world, and has been featured in “Best of” lists in Time, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, USA Today, and Wired.
We travel around the country to interview people, and sometimes take the show on the road to tell stories live.
