HStory Nick Allford
ow to sell a Haunted House – with episode titles like this, you know it’s not going to be your average true
crime podcast. Host Phoebe Judge and her team not only interview those who’ve been affected by crime, but the criminals who commit them. The crimes vary in severity from poaching Venus Fly Traps, counterfeiting money, all the way through to murder, but always with a common thread... they’re bloody fascinating and often bizarre.
One of the most interesting elements is the way each criminal or victim tells their story. A crim may show no remorse, offering tips on committing crimes in one episode, and in the next, a victim will explain how they got their revenge on a scammer.
This podcast mostly focusses on more obscure and unheard-of cases, although occasionally offers new takes on more famous murders from new angles such as “An owl did it”.
Some of the interviews may be five years old but the topics and emotions they evoke are still fresh and evergreen.
The timbre of Judge’s voice gives a soft storyteller feel to each tale and with episodes running at around 30 minutes a piece, it makes for very bingeable listening.
