Listen to “Criminal”

Criminal is off and running — hard. As of this writing, the podcast has only five episodes, but it sounds like it’s been produced for quite some time.

Maybe “Criminal’s” early success with solid storytelling and production values can be attributed to the experience of the three producers — Phoebe Judge, Lauren Spohrer, and Eric Mennel. All of them work in public radio and met while producing The Story (which, sadly, is no longer on the air).

Or, maybe “Criminal” has had such a strong start because of Phoebe’s enthusiasm. She was so excited talking about the podcast for HowSound, I thought she might start vibrating.

This edition of HowSound will give you a good sense of what Criminal is all about and how they produce the podcast. After listening, subscribe.

And, if you’re in the mood for other podcasts, these are some of the new one’s I’ve been listening to lately. I’ve thrown in a few old ones, too, but they’re somewhat new to me.

And, of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Radiotopia, the podcast network from PRX. More podcasts than you can shake a stick at.
