    Crime stories/podcasts

    Anyone into crime stories or podcasts?

    Anyone listened to Serial?

    If not, give it a listen, absolutely crazy and a great listen.

    The first season was great, the second not so much.

    Also watch making a murderer on Netflix if you have't already.

    Yeah I never really got into the second season. Have you listened to undisclosed?

    I have just started listening to http://www.convictedpod.com/ which has been good so far. Strangely the same lawyer is involved and the guy is actually in same block as Adnan.

    Making a murderer is great. Very interesting

    I did listen to Undisclosed, but it was quite heavy going at times in comparison, and didn't leave you 'on the edge of your seat' like serial.

    I'll take a look at Convictedpod, thanks

    I've listened to a couple of "Locked up abroad" podcasts.
    Not bad.

    I didn't get all the hype for making a murderer.
    Struggled to have any sympathy for the "victim".

    By 'Victim' do you mean Steven Avery?

    While not being the sharpest tool in the box, he was pretty clearly set up iirc.

    Yes, I get what you mean. It is very hard to see if it is a biased view and if details are left out. I guess what the show highlighted was how the police behaved and made their case.

    From listening to other podcasts, it seems that it happens more than you would like to think. Especially in the Serial case, an ex detective realised he got a false confession years after he put someone away. He then had to fight to get the man released and now works for the innocence project and improving how the detectives interview potential suspects.

    Obviously not saying that a lot of people who have been put away for horrendous crimes could be innocent, I just find it very interesting how it all works and if justice is actually achieved. But that is not to say that the podcast is unbiased and not missing or looking at evidence in a certain way.

    Personally I think Avery is guilty as sin. Yes they messed up the case in their eagerness to get him convicted but I still believe it was him.
