Been listening to one on Spotify called "Business Wars". Fascinating stuff. Each story is in 4-8 parts, each part about half an hour, forty minutes, something like that. Tells the story of a rivalry between two companies. Listening to Facebook vs Snapchat now. Also enjoyed "Nintendo vs Sony", "Coke vs Pepsi", "Marvel vs DC" and "Hearst vs Pulitzer." Only one host, his voice isn't obnoxious, he tells a good story, seems to research well, and he doesn't come across as biased for one side or the other.

Currently listening to a pod about a suicide that very likely wasn't called 'Culpable' made by Vault.

It is epically good.

If you're looking for good history/crime type podcasts, Wondery have some fantastic ones. Really good network of professionally-produced, informational podcasts. I recently enjoyed their six part series on the Wonderland murders in LA in the '70s, which involved the "King of Porn", John Holmes.

I just wish Douglas Murray had a podcast of his own. I've listened to most of his appearances on JRE, Sam Harris' Making Sense and a few others and I love listening to the man.

He's the voice of reason in a world of ever-increasing insanity.

Quite enjoying Wondery's podcast series on the Zodiac murders. I skipped season 1 because I'm familiar enough with the details of the case, but Season 2 does quite a deep dive into the suspects and the rediscovery of the case by the internet true crime community. A lot of that was pretty interesting. Has convinced me that Arthur Leigh Allen was not the Zodiac, for one.

Interesting Zodiac update. I got right into the Zodiac a while back. Will chase this one up.

Was thinking about making a thread to talk about suspects etc, but didn't think enough posters would be interested.

For those looking for a true crime story that is highly entertaining, look for 'ATM Boy'.

It is a 2 part pod about a guy who about 8 years ago accidentally found he could withdraw large amounts from ATMs without it being detected.

In about a 4 or 5 month blitz he went on a $1.6m spending spree and he had a fucking ball. The strangest part is it looked like he would never get caught until he handed himself in.
