A heart wrenching journey of a woman battling cancer takes a twisted turn, in this addictive true crime pod. Scamanda starts off slow, but hits the ground running a few episodes in. The compelling interviews, brilliant investigative journalism and superb audio production combine to make this a podcast worth binging. Though it's not necessarily a podcast for kids, it could be a fun podcast for teens to listen to with their family, especially since it's not violent or gory like so many other true crime podcasts.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
