I’m a lifelong true crime enthusiast and aspiring writer, and nothing fires my interest more than learning about and reading or hearing a detailed account of a gripping true crime case. I enjoy the research, and I enjoy the writing, and both have naturally intersected at this point to take the form of this blog – and now a step further with a podcast of my very own.
Both are always a work in constant progress, and I chose a subject that I can write both passionate and knowledgeable about. I like a personal touch, but not too personal – I’m known as Paul and my FB and Insta, Twitter are up there, but what I give away I give away. There will be new content weekly, with a mixture of case studies for the often overlooked true crime, featuring unsolved cases, accounts of killers serving life and their crimes, various other infamous solved crimes, an honest and unbiased review of true crime books I have either read previously, or have just finished, and podcasts that I dig out or am recommended. Mostly the past few months has been focused on the podcast – but the links are all good and the shownotes will be going in too!
I can be found myself in the podcast world – again as The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast, so I do hope you will tune in – links to my show can be found on the iTunes link below, or it can be found on the usual radio streaming sites such as Otto Radio, Spotify, or Stitcher, where I like to put out an episode weekly – usually on a Thursday. There is also a Patreon page that has bonus content – an extra episode exclusive to subscribers each month – and other offers available for listeners who may be interested – for even the price of less than a pint!
I like to dig out the obscure and forgotten crimes – not re-cover cases that are almost household names and are already well documented. So you won’t find your Shipman’s, your West’s, your Sutcliffe’s etc here in The True Crime Enthusiast. But you may find some things that are, if not as sensational, then I hope at least as interesting to you as they are to me. And although it is a big wide world out there, I tend to focus upon UK based cases – believe me, there are plenty of them!
Thanks for reading or listening, and please feel free to share. In fact, I welcome and encourage it. I also welcome any feedback and comments, whats popular and whats not etc, and I put a lifelong shoutout to aspiring writers who fancy writing up a case for the show, I’m all ears – and if it’s a good fit for an episode, I will use your content and credit you fully. I will always respond to any queries or comments anybody may have, and can be contacted at:
