Bit late but I started Hunting Warhead and on ep4. Extremely sickening but very well put together podcast. The amount of times my eyes have widened and almost popped out of my head and jaw has dropped.

All those poor people involved as well - his housemate, his aunt, and especially that other family member who was a cousin I think ("Jenn" and her kids)

Wish I hadn't read the posts here because I managed to spoil that he's in the last ep. That properly would've shocked me.

Any more good podcast recommendations? Finished 'The Dropout', looking for more multi-episode pods.

Currently listening to Broken Record. The Andre 3000 episode kills me. Such a talented guy doubting himself/dealing with his loss of confidence.

Just listened to the Broken Record interview @swiftus. Amazingly candid interview by one of the best mcs ever imo. Rubin gets on my nerves a bit but great series nonetheless.

Hunting warhead was shocking but also very interesting.
Is there any other podcasts of that sort (investigation on creepy cases) that you would recommend?

Might have been mentioned before but Ronan Farrow's series on Weinstein is decent

Yep, people who think Jeffrey Epstein was a peadophile need to listen to this podcast

by the way, some fucker here just got jailed for breaking into a home and raping a 2 year old girl, as in penetration of said 2 year old with his dick. Gave her an STD and everything. 9 years non parole period. Australia is fucked man, America has so many things right, punishment that fits the crime is one.

Raped his 3 year old daughter…gets a suspended prison sentence. Get the fuck outta here with your bullshit.

Listening to the Evil Genius podcast right now. Russell Kane is annoying as always, but it's an entertaining listen. Good mix of folks from literary/comedy/sports/entertainment world.

Nice shout on this.

Anyone listen to the Anna Delvy - Fake Heiress Documentary Podcast:

Surprised how she managed to scam so many people.

That's the exception that proves the rule. An outcomes like this is extremely uncommon in the US but extremely common in Australia. Obviously overall US sentencing for these kind of crimes is some of the harshest in the world.
