True Crime Garage: Podcast Review

October 24, 2020

True Crime Garage takes a casual, discussion based approach to the true-crime category. The two hosts, Nic and the Captain, sit down and drink beer to talk about local horror stories. The show covers mysterious disappearances, murders, serial killers, and unsolved crimes.

The production quality is extremely high, with several, long soundscapes to transition from one segment to the next. In the beginning of each episode, the hosts narrate the story, bringing it to life from a third person perspective. Sound effects are used strategically to add eerie, unsettling vibes to specific moments of the podcast. The show also adds quotes from bystanders, officers, and sometimes victims involved in the crime to get different perspectives on the story. After telling the audience the story of what happened during the crime, the hosts discuss what happened and draw insights to how the crime happened, whether it was predetermined, and what really drove the criminals involved.
