Crime Junkie is co-hosted by Indiana natives Ashley Flowers and Brit Prawat. Flowers and Prawat started Crime Junkie in December of 2017 as a way to shine a light on true-crime cases that were not well-known. Crime Junkie is also known for going through cases of minorities since they are not taken as seriously as other cases.

The podcast episodes vary from missing cases, serial killers, infamous and even some conspiracy episodes, but Flowers and Prawat do much more than Crime Junkie. The podcast series has raised over $600,000 for charity. Flowers and Prawat also donate money to help uncover new genealogical testing for evidence since there is a ton of new technology, and they also help some of the families that they talk to in their episodes.

  • Spittin Chiclets

Now, I am not much of a hockey fan, but Spittin Chiclets is a great podcast to listen to if you are and it honestly makes me appreciate the sport a lot more. Spittin Chiclets is a Barstool Sports podcast co-hosted by Ryan Whitney, who created the vodka Pink Whitney, and Paul Bissonnette, also known as Biz Nasty, who is a retired NHL hockey player and Rear Admiral. Spittin Chiclets tackles all things hockey in a hilariously unfiltered way and interviews people in the world of hockey.
