Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the “if it bleeds, it leads,” kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who’ve done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. We’re a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX, a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven shows.
