  • Has Apple Podcasts broken again? We note that “New Shows” in the Society & Culture category, in Australia, includes “The Spill” (new from Jul 22), “The Disappearance of Des” (from Aug 2), “The Duolingo French Podcast” (from Jun 18), “True Crime Conversations” (from Jun 19), and “The Portal” (from Jul 17). These appear to have been, mostly, updated for the launch of the new categories on Aug 2, but there appears to have been few updates for the Australian market after that. What Happens Next is the only new one we can see (along with lots of new US stuff). Perhaps the US listings are being maintained, and the Aussie-specific listings are not being refreshed as often? How’s it looking in your country?

    Death Is Hilarious
    Spreaker Prime: The Dirty Bits is performed by Tawny Platis, a professional voice actor, who gives a casual – and hopefully comical – Southern Californian retelling of the sexy, scandalous, and salacious stories from history that your teacher probably left out. She’s using Spreaker Prime to increase exposure and maximize monetization.
    Murder Dictionary
    Spreaker Prime Murder Dictionary {mer-der dik-she-ner-e} : a humorous discussion between true crime fanatics : an exploration of multiple cases based on the weekly topic, following the letter sequence of the alphabet : a great excuse for the podcast hosts to call their morbid curiosities “research.” They’re using Spreaker Prime to host for free and make more money.
    Break in the Case
    Play trailerWho better to host true crime podcasts than the people who worked on the cases? Break in the Case is a true crime podcast from the NYPD, with NYPD detectives taking us through cases they’ve worked on. (Megaphone)
