Crimes of the Centuries

A True Crime and History podcast
 1 person rated this podcast
Crime is so commonplace that it takes something particularly shocking to be labelled the “crime of the century.” Even so, there are a lot of cases that have earned the distinction. In each episode of Crimes of the Centuries, award-winning journalist Amber Hunt will examine a case that’s lesser known today but was huge when it happened. The cases explored span the centuries and each left a mark. Some made history by changing laws. Others were so shocking they changed society.

Crimes of the Centuries: Produced by the Obsessed Network this podcast’s solo host Amber Hunt is an already well known and widely loved personality in the true crime world. Hunt, a reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer, is the creator and host of the Webby nominated podcast Accused which covers suspicious death cases. She brings the same enticing and unbiased energy to this new show as she leads you through some of the landmark crimes of society. These crimes have faded into the background as time continued and other headlines took their places but when they happened were earthshaking. This podcast isn’t necessarily for those listeners who must have resolution by the end of the episode. Due to the cases being as old as they are and many other factors there isn’t a high likelihood that they will be solved. This doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be covered and the podcast is perfect for those true crime addicts who want to be walking crime encyclopedias. Launching just this past October on the 26th, the episodic show is brand new and covers a different case every episode. It currently has four episodes out which on average are about 44 minutes long and a new episode comes out every week on Mondays. Owltail has 4: Nannie Doss: The Murderous Giggling Granny as the most popular episodes which happened to be my favorite so far as well. Script and sound quality are as flawless as can be. Music is subtle and suspenseful. Apple podcasts has 74 written reviews, and 419 ratings for an average of four and a half stars. Trigger warnings are different for every case but include murder, sexual assualt and other forms of violence.
