The thing about podcasts is, no one knows anyone who actually listens to them. They’re like pregnancy blogs. At some point, everyone seemed to be convinced that what really is missing in the world of social media is a guy in his 40s talking about the political impact of coffee beans in african countries and how it influenced colonialism in the last century. Or what you had for breakfast in the last trimester. But there’s one exception, true crime podcasts. They are actually pretty entertaining and if not, they can be an inspiration to your neighbourly relationship with the dude down the hall who plays country music every Sunday evening. And if you’re really hooked, there are a ton of shows on Netflix about true crime as well. So give them a try and if you’re still not convinced, perhaps you will be after these Tweets. Enjoy!

probably the only thing worse than getting murdered would be getting murdered and then a true crime podcast says "we've got a really freaking awesome one for you this week" before doing an entire episode about you getting murdered

There should be a website where you can opt out of appearing in true crime shows in the event you die a gruesome but intriguing death.

My husband has no idea that I’ve watched enough crime shows that I could train the FBI.

I love when murder documentaries let me know that the scene they're showing is a 'dramatic reenactment', like I thought a professional camera crew filmed John Wayne Gacy eating breakfast with his wife the morning after he buried a corpse under his floorboards.

I’m so stressed. I think I need to disconnect and unwind.
