True Crime Podcasts for Kids, Tweens, and Teens
True crime is one of the most popular podcast genres. With hundreds of options out there, it can be hard to figure out what's worth listening to, as well as which ones you feel are appropriate for your child. We've put together a list of some of the best, most unique, and diverse true crime—and true crime-like—podcasts out there. You'll find something for kids of all ages and interests. For the younger crew, there are fun parody court shows, exciting detective whodunits, and lighthearted audio mysteries. For tweens and teens who are ready for more traditional true-crime shows, there are real-life crime investigations, ranging from less gruesome criminal activities to documentaries of unsolved murders. Adults may find some familiar titles they want to listen to with their high schooler, especially since there aren't graphic images to accompany some of the more intense stories. Either way, it's best to make sure you know what your child can handle before pressing play on these thrilling—and sometimes chilling—podcasts.
