Some of our favorites include Episode 15, “He’s Neutral,” about an Oakland, Cali. resident who unwittingly creates a shrine of sorts and Ep. 68, “All the Time in the World,” about a “body farm” at Texas State University.

The Charleston Podcast Issue

Old loves and new faves

In researching this week’s cover story, I was excited to find so many locally produced shows in a relatively small city like ours. Not all about Charleston — shocking, I know — the low barrier to get started and the instant connection across great distances makes it easy for anyone to start recording about anything they’d like.

New York magazine writes: “Criminal is a true crime podcast that understands crime as something sociological, historical, even anthropological — that crime is a function of people, time, and place. With incredible sound design, marvelous writing, and a boldness in the way it makes its choices, there are few shows that feel more alive.”

We could’t agree more.
