At the moment, I am using this space to record which podcasts I’ve given up on or stopped listening to.
Same guy as Up and Vanished. I just don’t like how he tells stories.
The Black Tapes
I stuck with this one for a season, but it infuriated me by constantly humming and hawing between “The Paranormal is Real!” and “It’s complete nonsense.”
A little too “now I’m just a humble Georgian reporter.”
I can’t think of another podcast I’ve listened to that felt like it was glorifying murder. This one feels like it has a very convoluted relationship with morality. Also, I’m not prude but there is so much swearing in this it’s just crazy.
My Favourite Murder
I don’t understand what the appeal of this show is. It’s got none of the things that I find appealing about true crime. It’s just mystifying.
Up and Vanished
I gave this one ten episodes. It’s too conspiratorial for me. Every “clue,” no matter how coincidental or insignificant, is treated like it’s The Key to Cracking The Case and that gets tiring after awhile.
