  1. Two barrels, four bodies, and an enigmatic killer. The cold case that changed the way murders will be investigated forever.
  2. When April Balascio was 40 years old, something she’d feared for decades was finally proven true. Her father, Edward Wayne Edwards, really was a murderer. The Clearing is about what came after April called a detective in 2009 to tell him about her suspicions — a call that led to her father’s arrest and eventual conviction on multiple murders — and tracks the emotional journey as she and host Josh Dean dig back into her childhood, unravel the truth of her father’s life, and overturn a viral online narrative that had turned Edward Wayne Edwards into a kind of serial killer caricature. Produced by Pineapple Street Studios in association with Gimlet.
  3. An unidentified body. Who was she? Why hasn’t she been missed? A BBC World Service and NRK original podcast, investigating a mystery unsolved for almost half a century.
  4. Unravel True Crime is a podcast where, each season, some of Australia's best journalists investigate unsolved crimes. Season 4: Snowball tells how an average family's encounter with a charismatic Californian con woman cost them everything.
  5. In 2007, a serial killer inspired by Rube Goldberg murdered Lorena Salas, Carlos Aniceto, and Ana Nuñez in Sierra Blanca, Texas then vanished never to be heard of again. Authorities believe that these murders were the collateral damage of a cartel turf war that spilled into Mexico. Though, Lorena's niece, Magdalena Salas, does not believe that story. The Heads of Sierra Blanca is an 8 episode podcast hosted by Magdalena and private investigator, Monica Rodriguez, following their investigative research concerning what really happened and who is responsible. This show is an immersive experience that combines fiction, true crime and real interviews with experts.
  6. How do you take down a criminal network that’s hidden in the shadows? How do you rescue child abuse victims who could be anywhere in the world?

Host Daemon Fairless tracks down the investigators, survivors and criminals themselves. A co-production of CBC Podcasts and the Norwegian newspaper VG.
