Hosted By: Linda Sawyer
Sleuth does something that is uncommon for a majority of true crime podcasts – follows the crime as it unfolds “real time.”
With a new case covered each season, listeners can expect to hear everything from a play by play of the trial along with interviews with the lawyers and family members of the victims.
