Bingeworthy Podcasts

As some of you may know, I’m addicted to podcasts. They’re free, can be tailored to pretty much any subject the listener is interested in and are essentially the audio equivalent of a good TV show; far too easy to binge.

I’ve bene getting through a few of them at a rate of knots so thought I’d share what I’ve been listening to in case anyone has the urge or fancies something new/different. I’m always on the lookout for something new and different, especially in the fiction/audio drama side of things. So if you have any hidden gems, do let me know!

I use the app ‘Podcast Addict’ but am almost certain all of the podcasts listed can be found on most podcast streaming services.

Together with his father’s former partner, retired Detective Anne Becker, Jeremy must chase the clues that will tell him whether his father really did fall victim to a Satanic cult in the Bridgewater Triangle—or something much more dark and unexplainable.
