True Crime Podcasts You Should Listen Out For

by Jennifer Dillon | October 28 2020


Whether you are a die-hard true crime fan or you want to feel extra spooky because Halloween is approaching, adding a few podcasts to the list is a must. Although podcasts are extremely common throughout today’s pop-culture, true-crime has proven to be an especially popular genre among listeners. The good thing about it — there are so many different podcasts that can cater to your specific interests. 

Are you interested in unsolved mysteries? There is a podcast for that. Are you interested in serial killer cases? There is a podcast for that too. With 2020 being the year of pandemic and quarantine, people have been indulging in old and new interests, and true-crime podcasts have proven to be a cool, fun way to pass the time. 

Casefleet, a legal case software management company, put together an analysis of the most popular true-crime podcasts. This study includes everything from the number of featured unsolved cases, the number of episodes featuring a serial killer, to the most featured cases. This study includes My Favorite Murder, Criminal, Crime Junkie, and Sword & Scale. After analyzing a combined 608 episodes, between the four shows, Casefleet found that 31% of episodes featured an unsolved case. Furthermore, 20% of cases featured a serial killer, and only 18% of cases featured a female suspect. 

Even though all four podcasts feature pretty great content, some specialize in certain areas. For example, if you love mystery, over 50% of Crime Junkie’s episodes feature an unsolved mystery. If it’s a specific case you are interested in, such as the disappearance of Johnny Gosch, you can check this story out on all four platforms and hear it told and investigated in different ways, depending on the style of the show. 

When you have some free time on your hands, get lost in the world of true crime. Happy listening!

The 3 Best Netflix Original Movies of 2018

by Becky B | December 28 2018

All things considered, 2018 has been a remarkably successful year for Netflix. From the debut of several wildly popular TV shows like Queer Eye and The Haunting of the Hill House, to the continued success of crowd pleasers like Friends and The Office, it’s no wonder that America’s favorite tv streaming service has gained nearly 7 million new subscribers so far this year.

And given the steady stream of Netflix original movies released since January, it’s very probable that Netflix’s success is due, at least in part, to the popularity of the original movies they’ve put out.

If you’re just now hopping on the streaming service band-wagon or have been on a “technology cleanse” for the past 11 months, these are the three best Netflix original movies that should be on your must-watch list.

1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before captures the beautiful essence of Jenny Han’s widely-loved YA fiction novel and turns it into the kind of Rom-Com that dreams are made of.

For those who haven’t watched Netflix’s most-talked-about RomCom of 2018, the movie follows the journey of Laura Jean Covey, a quiet, but spunky teenager who writes love letters to a handful of boys– all of whom she admired in different seasons of her life. Though the letters were never meant to be mailed out, they somehow find their way into the hands of her former crushes. In To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, which is based on the first of Jenny Han’s 3 book series, Laura Jean deals with the fall-out of 2 letters in particular. First, the one she wrote to her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. And, more importantly, the one addressed to her childhood friend turned most popular boy at school, Peter Kavinsky.

Given the film’s instant success, it’s no surprise that Netflix already has a sequel in the works. The movie will be based upon the second book in Han’s series, P.S. I Still Love You, and will pick up right where the last one left off.


2. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society

Equally as wonderful, but much more serious in tone than To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society is based on a novel co-written by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer.

Set in 1940s England, the story centers around Juliet, a captivating writer who receives an unexpected letter that turns out to be from a little-known literary society that sprouted up in Nazi-controlled Guernsey. Driven by curiosity, Juliet sets out to find the group behind the letter and to see what they’re all about. This endearing film follows her on what turns out to be a life-altering journey.

Receiving a respectable 81% on Rotten Tomatoes, this is definitely a Netflix original worth watching.


3. Like Father

Like Father tells the story of a workaholic Bride (Kristen Bell) who, after being left at the altar by her fiancé, winds up going on her honeymoon with her estranged father (Kelsey Grammar). Over the course of a week-long cruise, they vacation together (And apart), argue often, and meet an eccentric gang of cruise ship friends who do their best to offer advice.

Ultimately, they disembark with much more than they bargained for, that is, a mended relationship and a renewed sense of trust in and love for one another.

If you’re looking for a movie that will make you laugh your socks off, but also shed a tear or two, Like Father might just hit the spot.

‘Tis the season for binge-watching TV shows on Netflix. (Does that season ever really end though?)

Netflix has a wide variety of these classics available for viewing. Sure, they aren’t necessarily starring today’s best and hottest actors, but they do at least have stars of their day. Plus, you might just see one of your favorite people in these shows, back when they were starting out.
