Up And Vanished: Season Three
When it comes to true crime podcasts you’re often left hanging at the end of the series, with no resolution. That’s not the case with Up And Vanished and its host Payne Lindsey who’s first season helped to solve the 12-year-old cold case of Tara Grinstead. In season three, Lindsey digs deep into the disappearance of Ashley Loring HeavyRunner, a 20-year-old indigenous woman who went missing from the Blackfeet Nation Indian Reservation in 2017. Lindsey and his team interview her family and people of interest in the case in the hopes of finding out what happened to HeavyRunner. Listen to it here.
Tanya Henessy Mediocre
Our favourite funny gal Tanya Hennessy is back with her newest podcast series Mediocre (which is a word we would never associate with that queen). Teaming up with her equally hilarious mate Adam Cubito, the duo will have you laughing so hard you’ll feel like you’ve just done some crunches at the gym. Each week they’ll drop a new ep, where they’ll talk about everything from philosophical questions and existential crises to LOLs about IBS. Listen to it here.
Over My Dead Body
Podcast legends, Wondery (Dr. Death and Dirty John), are back with the latest installment of their anthology series Over My Dead Body which chronicles people who are pushed beyond their limits and do unspeakable things. In Fox Lake, the series will follow the 2015 murder of a small town cop who was gunned down in a swamp.
