Too often, people merely see podcasts as beginning and ending with the true crime genre. Frankly, it’s hard not to feel at times like that’s even true of those who make the shows, with the (now very long ago) success of the likes of Serial having established a template that’s all too easy for producers to fall back on. Indeed, a wild (and increasingly tiresome) number of true-crime podcasts are announced week in, week out. But podcasting is a medium unto itself, with strengths that – in many cases – can help it tell a story better than TV or film. And the genre’s greatest power?
