Crime never takes a day off, and neither does Parcast. Every day, we flip back the calendar and examine a true crime event from the same date. It might be the anniversary of an important case being solved, the end of a landmark trial, or a serial killer’s birthday-- whatever the date, there’s no ordinary day in true crime history. In each episode, we present a short true crime story, then analyze the impact of that historic day’s events. Today in True Crime is a Parcast Original, with new episodes daily.

Love it but...

I love this podcast but am very much bothered by the recent sponsor break. The laughing “hey friends” intro is very out of place in a serious podcast. I find it a bit disturbing, actually. I’d give this pod a full five stars if it wasn’t for that intro.
