With so many podcasts being made today, it’s hard to keep up. Luckily, with the help of iHeartRadio’s Podcast Spotlight, you can find something new to listen to every week. Here’s the latest on our iHeartPodcasts including new seasons and episodes:
True crime and mystery blend in “Radical,” which follows the story of two police officers who were shot in one of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods on March 16, 2000. One officer died and the other claimed the shooter was Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, the leader of a local mosque. Once known as H. Rap Brown, a charismatic leader of the Black Panther Party, Al-Amin was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. But was Al-Amin truly guilty? Or was it payback for decades of work against the establishment? Find out on Tuesdays.
Tired of women always being the victims in grisly true crime stories? “The Greatest True Crime Stories Ever Told” is for you! With new episodes on Tuesdays, this anthology series dives into the most layered and engrossing true crime stories about female killers, cops, scientists, lawyers, scammers, activists and more. Host and true crime writer Mary Kay McBrayer tells the stories in which women aren’t narrowly defined as victims, but instead are the protagonists.
Fans of “King Slime,” which follows the ongoing trial of rapper Jeffery Lamar Williams (Young Thug), can check out the “King Slime: Bonus Episode” for even more on the craziest trial in Atlanta and hip hop’s history. Out now, the bonus episode dives into the story of YSL defendant Sergio Kitchens, the rapper Gunna, after he took an Alford plea and walked out of Fulton County Jail with probation last December. Christina Lee investigates Gunna’s life after court, the impact on his reputation and music, and the evolving legacy of Atlanta as hip-hop’s capital.
