Recommended TV Shows - Podcasts etc

There's a lot of true crime around these days so it might be a good idea to have a thread for recommendations for shows which won't have their own dedicated thread.

Wild Wild Country - Netflix
about the Rajneeshee Cult who moved to America in the late 80's - Bizarre story which get's stranger as it goes along.

Murder Mountain - Netflix
A look at an area in Hunboldt County in California known as Murder Mountain. Locals are very much outlaws in the Wild West where people regularly go missing. Lots of Marijuana is produced here both legally and illegally.

Abducted in Plain Sight - Netflix
Just added on Netflix - Bizarre story about a girl who was kidnapped by her neighbour...twice!

Homicide Hunter - CI
Love a bit of homicide hunter with Joe Kenda - a retired detective with a great record of solving crimes. Multiple episodes available on Skygo.

Follow true Crime daily and Buzzfeed unsolved on Youtube - they usually have really good content.

Anyone listening to a podcast called "Cold"? Pretty good, if a bit long winded.

Just in case anyone doesn't know about "The First 48" TV series from A&E in the States and on C&I here, I fink.

All hour long TV episodes so approx 42 mins long each. Very simply a fly on the wall doc with the doc crew embedded in Homicide departments in the US. They follow each murder case from when the call comes in to its conclusion, whatever that may be. Each episode either has just 1 case, which is better, or 2 per episode which feels a bit rushed.

Gripping stuff. Started in 2004 and the new ones are probably some of the best ever as they have perfected the format over the years, IMO.

385 episodes according to IMDB, I reckon I've seen about 360 and apart from some of the latest ones I've only missed the others by accident.

It's a brilliant, brilliant series. I am glued to every episode.

There were a few on Netflix back in the day but sadly no more. Kodi etc is your best bet. Some dodgy copies are on YouTube with the video distorted so they don' get taken down.

edit: just to say I hadn't heard about Forensic Files before reading this thread, so just want to pay it forward. I'm just here to raise awareness, if I can just help out one person then it will have all been worth it

Sounds great, had never heard of that. Thanks for the tip!

BTW, The Ted Bundy series on Netflix is excellent. Really well produced and fascinating to hear Bundy talking on tape. The man was an absolute psychopath.

Finished the Bundy Doc last night, thought it was very good.

Fascinating character I suppose he redefined what a murderer was, he showed that a mass murderer, a compete psychopath was able to be charming, function in everyday life, get educated, get a job and hold down relationships. In a way he was the most unlikeliest perpetrator. Came across as harmless, friendly & funny when in reality he was a psychopathic narcissist. The ultimate boogie man.

When seeing him on the doc it's hard to imagine that he was responsible for such carnage. The trial tapes were bizarre, he showed very little emotion, obviously had no conscience. Felt sorry for the mother, didn't want to believe her son could be responsible. I'd like to see further into his upbringing, there must have been something in his childhood which corrupted his mind.

Casefile is an excellent podcast. Their 3 part episodes on the Yorkshire ripper and the moors murders are a good place to start I reckon.

Its the best. The 3-parter on the Silk Road was also particularly good. Superb, in fact.

Another fan of Casefile here..Steadily working my way through them..probably could have picked a better time to listen to the Weepy Voice Killer than last thing before i went asleep last night

Very easy voice to listen to too..

Casefile is fantastic, favourite episodes would be silk Road, jonestown, East area rapist, Jennifer Pan & the toy box of the ones I've listened to, need to listen to more of them.

Just started listening to casefile yesterday. Started off with episode 1 Wanda Beach Murders and while I found it a little long I really enjoyed the approach and the hosts voice is really relaxing. I'll be taking some of the above recomendations.

I listened to the latest one too - Peter Nielsen, bit anoyingly I hadn't realised part 2 hadn't come out yet.This will make a nice change to my usual commuting Netflix
