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:

  1. It’ll be nice to hear about more obscure UK/European true crime. I’m glad I found this site. Not sure if you know about some of the True Crime podcast we have over here in the US. I would suggest…True Crime Garage, Sword & Scale, Generation Why, Criminal, Histories most Notorious, Missing Maura Murray, and Crawlspace.

  2. I grew up in Riversdale House, formerly The Post Office in The Street, Eversley where Jacqueline Palmer Radford was murdered 1.4.92. The house was built in 1952 and was demolished in 1996. 2 houses now stand on what was an acre site.

    I met Mrs. Palmer Radford in 1990 when I went to view the house which was then on the market. We lived there as a family 1971 – 81. My parents sold the house in 1982.

    A very strange case. It featured on Crimewatch but I can’t now find the video.

    1. It’s available on YouTube – I used it to research this blogpost


    2. Most of the really old Crimewatch episodes are on YouTube. Redcard74 has uploaded a lot of them… go figure.


  3. I write a travel blog, but I’ve always been obsessed with true crime. Glad to have found your site and I look forward to reading more.

  5. You are amazing Paul!! Long time true crime podcast listener and you are the best!


  6. Thank you for all the empathy you invoke during your podcast. This last episode on mate crime was beyond heart wrenching. Abuse of any form is vile and your presentation of these 2 cases captured the horror in its entirety.


  7. Can you change the social media to links on this page? Sorry, new to WordPress & am really exploring social media for the first time this last year at the longest (sadly, not until 35!). Thus, trying to follow & keep up on news is EXHAUSTING! 😂


  8. Loving the podcast… I found you after searching through Apple podcasts as I’d exhausted my usual go to podcasts and so started my marathon listening. I was gripped from the word go… but as I listened I was trying to work out what was familiar; then it hit me.., you’re a North Walian! Even better! I’m a north walian too, living in South Wales. Well done True Crime Enthusiast! You’re doing a great job!


    1. Well thanks very much, indeed I am yes. Whereabouts in N Wales?


      1. I’m from Holywell.. I visit regularly. Small world ay!


      2. Indeed it is yes, a place I pass by regularly


  9. Your blog is wowww amazing. I love read it.
