Obscura is my favorite true crime podcast. I love the host, I love the structure, I love the cases. He’s passionate, smart, well researched and respectful. I love his voice and feeling like I’m sitting at the fire with him. If you’re on the fence, don’t be. Give this show your time and you won’t be disappointed.
There are SO many bad and disrespectful true crime podcasts, with grating hosts that make your ears bleed. Obscura always puts victims first. And facts before opinions, and I don’t mind when he states his opinion because he is always clear that you don’t have to think like him.
(If anyone is upset about episodes being released right now, the host has gone through some difficult times lately. Be patient with him because the level of quality he puts into each episode is so worth it.)
