My Favorite Murder (MFM) is a perfect true crime podcast with quality humor. Hostesses Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark take listeners through their favorite spine-chilling murders. Their episodes also feature hometown crime stories from fans or friends.
The two comedies do a great job engaging with the story and the listener, offering their hysterical commentary throughout. They keep things light and funny while still offering that spook we all crave during the Halloween season, making it perfect to listen to when high.
These ladies are just what crime and murder junkies need! For example, Kilgariff and Hardstark are murder mystery fanatics themselves so they’re great company. In fact, they have taken MFM from a murder podcast to an entire brand. Whether the hostesses are talking about the murder, or their lives, there is always plenty of humor and spookiness to go around.

For that feeling of relief when the mystery is solved, podcasts that feature solved murder stories are the way to go! Get a fix of scary with Solved Murders: True Crime Mysteries, also by Parcast Network.
Both series are equally captivating and creepy, and this podcast also features reenactments of true events.

For time crunches or just mini doses of fright after lighting up, listen to Scary Story Podcasts. This series digs into unexplained phenomena, strange events and questionable paranormal activities.
Each episode averages about 15 minutes. But don’t be fooled by the short episodes; these stories are guaranteed to give audiences goosebumps. The opening theme music alone is spine-chilling. And the sound effects are perfectly paired with the storyline, making it extra eerie. The episodes are told ominously like ghost stories around a campfire, fitting for fall vibes.
Episodes typically consist of a couple of mysterious mini-stories, very short and sweet, well, short and scary. Telling a few different stories keeps things interesting, making this perfect to play in the background of a session. In fact, listeners get two to five good scares within about 20 minutes!
Solve This Murder

Finally, Solve This Murder is meant for those who love murder mysteries but hate the tragedies that are involved with true stories. The hosts — Dani Siller and Bill Sunderland — take listeners on a who-dun-it journey with a completely original, made up murder mystery! For example, one host takes on the roll of making the murder while the other plays a detective and tries to solve it with strategically planted clues. The detective is transparent about their thought process, making this a hilarious listen.
It’s a very involved podcast and audiences get to act as the detectives! Fans can even submit their guesses to the hosts who may in turn just give shoutouts to those who’ve solved the case.
