5 Podcasts and YouTubers EVERY True Crime Lover Should Absolutely Know

True crime has become a phenomenon in the past few years. It has skyrocketed from the late-night Dateline episodes your parents watched growing up to multimedia entertainment spanning from YouTube videos to podcasts on Spotify.

I have been a huge fan of true crime for a few years and have accumulated my favorite podcasts and YouTube channels. As social isolation continues and the need for some escapes from the overwhelming climate our country and world is in, here are five true crime informers to occupy your time and help your paranoia increase by tenfold.

1. "Crime Junkie" - Podcast 

"Crime Junkie is" a podcast consisting of two childhood friends, Ashley and Brit, who tell cases of murder, kidnappings, and other horrendous crimes. They make sure to keep the podcast episodes interesting and not mundane or repetitive.

Not only that, but their delivery of the cases is so incredibly respectful to the victims and their families - you can tell they truly do care about them.

Every month they have a fun and lighthearted segment called 'Pruppet' of the Month' where they showcase a viewer's dog where they tell a story about the sweet puppy dog! It's a perfect small snippet of lightheartedness after an intense case.

2. Eleanor Neale - YouTuber 

Eleanor Neale is a British YouTuber who posts videos retelling and informing her audience of true crime cases. Most of her cases tend to take place in Great Britain, but also cover other countries' cases as well.

Her empathy truly shines throughout all of her videos and she always has the utmost respect for those in the cases as well. Neale covers cases from disappearances to raise awareness for the missing people to murders to bring attention to those who deserve to have their story shared.

Something that makes Eleanor Neale standout from other true crime informers is her theories and outlooks she gives throughout her videos along with very human reactions instead of being monotone.

3. Bella Fiori - YouTuber 

Bella Fiori is an Australian YouTuber who posts not only true crime videos but also travel and beauty videos as well.

However, her true-crime videos tend to gain a good amount of her views as they are so well done to the point she has gained a mass amount of followers for that specific type of videos.

Fiori does extensive research to properly inform her audience of the cases she covers, along with being incredibly articulate as well. Being from another country, some of the cases are some that most American audiences would not know about.

Just like the previous true-crime informers mentioned, Fiori also holds incredible respect in her videos when discussing the victim(s) and the events.

4. Casefile True Crime - Podcast 

Casefile True Crime, also known as Casefile, is a podcast based in Australia presented by an anonymous host backed by a large team. The multitude of faces that go behind the research, composition, producing, etc. show the dedication that goes into each podcast episode.

Also being from a foreign country, most of their episodes cover Australian solved and cold cases, however U.S. and UK. cases are also covered.

This podcast has won numerous awards since its start in 2016. Additionally, the format of the podcast differs from most other true crime podcasts as it is in a narrative, scripted format rather than a discussion.

5. Kendall Rae - YouTuber 

Kendall Rae is one of the original true crime YouTubers having started covering cases constantly in 2017. Her coverage on all different types of cases from hazings to heinous murders is always conducted with the utmost respect.

Not only that, but she has made 'vlogumentary' to gain more coverage of the Christian Andreacchio case to gain enough signatures for the case to be reopened and examined.

Her series titled 'Where Is' has merchandise with it where 100% of the proceeds go to Thorn, an organization that works towards ending child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
