Criminal is a podcast about crime.
Stories of people who’ve done wrong, been wronged, or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. The show’s producers are full-time radio people, but Criminal is what we do when we go home at night. Created by Phoebe Judge, Eric Mennel and Lauren Spohrer, we released our first episode in January 2014. For the first year, we funded the show ourselves, calling in favors and receiving donations from friends. In January 2015, we joined Radiotopia.
