Criminal is unique among crime podcasts: it doesn't simply focus on one type of crime, the stories it covers span centuries, and episodes rarely exceed 30 minutes. The best episodes of Criminal allow average people to speak about extraordinary events, bolstered by host Phoebe Judge's interviews. Judge has interviewed lawyers, historians, crime victims, and more, creating an intimate environment that often feels like your best friend telling you about the strangest thing that's ever happened to them.

Each episode starts with a cold open; Judge introduces the case, and just when she's built the perfect amount of anticipation, she says, "I'm Phoebe Judge. This is Criminal." Since 2016, Criminal episodes have explored everything from the difficulties of police evidence recovery to ultra-rare bourbon. These are the best episodes of the Criminal podcast, ranked by listeners.
