The new podcast by the creators of Serial and This American Life. This is not a traditional investigative "whodunit" - it's better. It starts as an investigation of an alleged murder and only gets more intriguing. All seven episodes are available to binge in one go.
This one I only discovered recently and while I wish I had known about it sooner, it is rad having a back catalogue to listen to. It pit's facts against fads and busts some myths in the process. The episode about Organic foods was particularly enlightening.
A podcast hosted by renowned author Malcom Gladwell, in which he, to quote the website. "reinterpret(s) something from the past: an event, a person, an idea. Something overlooked. Something misunderstood."
A documentary podcast that revisits the investigation of the infamous Boston Strangler that terrorized the city in the early 1960s. Macabre, I know, but it faithfully investigates the nuances of the case, while honouring the victims.
My final recommendation (for now) is Crimetown. From some of the dudes who brought you HBO's The Jinx and Catfish, comes a podcast that looks at the culture of organized crime and corruption of specific cities in each season. The first season deals with Providence, Rhode Island and it's got some of the best stories and characters of any podcast I've listened to.
