PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how.

Pretend Radio, The Score: The Bank Robber Diaries, Dig

True crime lovers of the world unite, it's CRIME TIME on Castology this week. It's conmen, liars, and shysters with Zane's recommendation Pretend Radio. Liz took a break from murder (listening to it, not doing it) to recommend The Score: The Bank Robber Diaries. And then Nick does a deep dive into some pretty sobering systemic breakdowns with Dig. Then, it's review time for last week's recommendations.

Liz Recommends - The Score: The Bank Robber Diaries

https://play.acast.com/s/thescore

"14 months. 30 Banks. An all-access pass into the mind of one of Southern California’s most prolific bank robbers.

On the show, Joe Loya - the so-called “Beirut Bandit” - reveals his story of transformation from abusive childhood to prolific bank robber, violent convict, ex-con, writer and ultimately, a reconciled son.

Produced by Peabody-Award winning podcaster Ben Adair (The Sterling Affairs, Dr. Death, Reveal) at Western Sound in partnership with Acast Studios."

This podcast runs through the life cycle of a bank robber, from how he got into robbing banks, how it escalated, how he got caught, how he fared in prison… has he really reformed?

For both: Start at the very beginning.

Nick Recommends - Dig

A woman told Louisville police she was raped in January 2018. She expected them to quickly try to arrest the suspect. But an officer on the scene that night didn't seem to believe her. The detectives weren't convinced that a crime occurred. And a prosecutor rejected the case well before an arrest was even under consideration. In the first season of Dig, a new podcast from the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, we bring you the results of a yearlong look at how rape cases are investigated in Louisville. What we've learned: here, the police defer to prosecutors on rape cases — and prosecutors reject the vast majority of cases presented to them. Due to this unusual relationship, most people accused of rape here will never face consequences. Most won't be arrested or convicted. And the case will be closed anyway.

For both: From the start!

Zane Recommends - Pretend Radio

http://pretendradio.org/

No blood and gore here! Pretend Radio is a documentary-style podcast about real people pretending to be someone else. The host interview con artists, snake oil salesmen, undercover FBI agents—pretty much anyone living a lie.

For Both: Take your pick!
