True crime doesn't get any truer than New York City Crime Report with Pat Dixon. Standup comic Pat Dixon hosts the shit out of this long-running and highly irreverent podcast detailing various aspects of crime in America's Largest City (World's loneliest town).
Here's the problem with a lot of "true crime" shows, they're not happening NOW. They serialize it, dragging out a story over several episodes. They talk about stuff that happened years ago. They bullshit you with spooky music and moralize, speculate, drop hints, take themselves too seriously or waste your time with ads and, I don't know, they mostly suck, that's how I feel.
In continuous production since 2011, NYCCR was one of the FIRST True Crime podcasts and is still the ONLY show devoted to reporting the crime happening NOW in New York City, including murders, robberies, rapes, and social-distancing violations, and it's generally funny or at least disrespectful.
Easily offended? it's not for you. Not easily offended? I don't believe you, go listen to My Favorite Murder, you donkey.
