Podcast episodes worth a listen – December 2016

I listen to a lot of podcasts so you don’t have to.¬†Download these for the long drive to the relatives this Christmas.

Podcast of the month – Crime Town

True crime is the new hot podcast genre and this return-to-form offering from Gimlet is a gripping, well-produced listen. It recounts jaw-dropping tales of mobbed-up 70s life in Providence, Rhode Island. A must listen for fans of The Sopranos, Goodfellas etc.
