Criminal is an award-winning podcast about crime. Stories of people who’ve done wrong, been wronged, or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. Host Phoebe Judge presents brand new stories, told live on stage, and scored and mixed live by co-creator Lauren Spohrer. Each story is accompanied visuals—photographs of forensic evidence, historical court documents, and original animations by Julienne Alexander. Get to know the Criminal team, peek behind the curtain of how they find stories, and you might even find yourself being questioned by Phoebe Judge.
“The thinking person’s true crime podcast.” – The News & Observer
“No matter how strange or ghastly the crime, the voice of the host Phoebe Judge somehow remains implacable and oddly soothing.” – The New York Times
“Criminal is a true crime podcast that understands crime as something sociological, historical, even anthropological – that crime is a function of people, time, and place. With incredible sound design, marvelous writing, and a boldness in the way it makes its choices, there are few shows that feel more alive.” – New York Magazine
“Perfect for: People who wish true crime shows had more rigorous journalistic standards.” – Time
“Criminal offers bizarre stories of true crimes that will stay with you.” – Wired
