Who am I?

I am the creator and co-podcaster of Severed | True Crime Podcast. I love well-told true crime (and true-crime-adjacent)cases. It is a unique angle within the true crime genre. I love podcasts that provide niche storytelling in an otherwise crowded true crime genre.

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

My podcast, Severed | True Crime Podcast, is focused on true crime to paranormal cases. Corruption can play a minor to major role in perpetrating and convicting such a crime.

What is my podcast playlist about?

Our Severed episodes are thematically linked by geographic location; in most cases, there is overlap relative to family dysfunction, domestic violence, abuse, and trauma.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. Uncharitable

Why this podcast?

Uncharitable Podcast takes an insider's view of the dark, seedy, and corrupt underbelly of alleged charitable organizations and their scandals. Host Odeya's script and vocal delivery are clear, concise, and perfect for listeners who want a no-nonsense perspective on the inner workings of organizations otherwise thought to help or be of service. As dismaying as the content might be, it's an important narrative that sheds light on injustices around the UK. Cases are diverse and relatively wrap up between 26-36 minutes (ideal for a short commute). Highly recommend this unique take on true crime. And, of course, who doesn't love a British accent? Melt.

Charity Fraud, Scandals and Crimes.
Uncharitable is the brand new, alternative, true crime podcast focusing on the darker side of charitable organisations and the impact of their misconduct on society.
Host Odeya's personal connection to these stories adds an intriguing layer of authenticity and perspective, while the exploration of embezzlement, corruption, and financial misconduct within these organisations shed light on important issues and prompt listeners to think critically about the non-profits they support.

2. Swindled

Why this podcast?

Swindled provides a concise, narrative framing of cases involving corruption and fraud. Content is informative but no commentary is provided on the facts or details. The archival audio--although clear and well-edited into the organized chronology of the crime(s)--can be distracting at times. This is not meant to be a petty or mean-spirited comment, but I find the narrator's accent to be distracting.

3. American Scandal

Why this podcast?

American Scandal provides a concise, narrative format for episodes that tend to lean more political. Host Lindsey Graham's voice is radio-/podcast-friendly and clearly articulates a balance of history with facts; I would appreciate more analysis, though. The format and timing are ideal for a 34-45 minute commute. AS offers a single-episode format with some two-part episodes.

Every scandal begins with a lie. But the truth will come out. And then comes the fallout and the outrage.

Scandals have shaped America since its founding. From business and politics to sports and society, we look on aghast as corruption, deceit and ambition bring down heroes and celebrities, politicians and moguls. And when the dust finally settles, we’re left to wonder: how did this happen? Where did they trip up, and who is to blame? From the creators of American History Tellers, Business Wars and Tides of History comes American Scandal, where we take you deep into the heart of America’s dark side to look at what drives someone to break the rules and what happens when they’re caught. Hosted by Lindsay Graham.

Follow American Scandal on the Wondery app or wherever you get your podcasts. You can binge new seasons of American Scandal early and ad-free on Wondery+. Join Wondery+ in the Wondery app or on Apple Podcasts.

4. Political Scandals

Why this podcast?

Political Scandals offers up the most high-profile and notorious scandals in Watergate, the Clinton-Lewinsky Affair, Iran-Contra, and more. I love the political charge and emphasis on D.C.-based corruption. It's historical, informative, and what you would expect from a podcast that covers the most notorious scandals. A great podcast for those who want to learn about these scandals such as students for academic projects.

5. Who Killed JFK?

Why this podcast?

Oh, Who Killed JFK? I wanted to love this podcast, I really did. I adore Rob Reiner and Soledad O'Brien. But this podcast is more for beginners who want to learn the basic history of the JFK assassination. For such seasoned storytellers, in Reiner and O'Brien, I expected more in-depth analysis. I even listened well beyond the first four episodes, hoping for insights and analysis, but got more of the same: Who was Oswald? I also think there should be a better use of O'Brien's investigative talents. I recommend this podcast for those who want to learn about the JFK assassination; not for seasoned followers of the infamous scandal and assassination.

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
