About Us

Obscura: A True Crime Podcast is a podcast about shining a spotlight on the darker things in life. It's a podcast that takes a narrative approach to covering true stories. We cover murders, mysteries, missing persons, and more. We cover terrible acts in unflinching detail. Listener discretion is advised.

Member Benefits

Welcome listener. I'm glad you're here...

Why Premium?

This is our dream project.... but we have to make it sustainable. With your help I don't see why Obscura can't be an indefinite production. But we do need your help. At a certain point the many, many hours it takes to produce each episode can take its toll. That's where your help comes in. With enough budget Obscura can become a full time effort for all involved. 

What makes your show worth expanding?

What makes Obscura: A True Crime Podcast different from a number of True Crime Podcasts is that it has a narrative focus. This basically means that you're not just getting the facts laid out in front of you. I've always been of the mind that wikipedia does that well enough for you. 

Because of this, we create a cohesive story you can follow, with immersive sound and atmospheric music. Combine that with a sympathetic exploration of the victims. Too many podcasts in the true crime space feel exploitative for the sake of exploitation.  We want Obscura to show that you can tell an engaging, factual true crime story and remain respectful to the victims involved. 

But isn't this easy work?

Each episode takes 40-80 hours of research, writing, editing, social networking and narration. This is our passion and we love to create. But we have no pretense that it's easy work. 

What's in it for me? 

Other than merchandise and early ad-free access to episodes... if you subscribe to Premium at the $5 level you will get access to monthly Black Label episodes. 

Thank you for reading and...keep the fire burning.

S2E20: James Byrd Jr - On The Map [Ad Free]

EExclusive EpisodeWriter: Gemma HarrisWhat you’re about to hear didn’t happen all that long ago. Unfortunately for the victim in today’s story, more extensive legislative protection came too late for what transpired one unusually hot June in east Texas. But it proved to be the catalyst for much-needed reform when it comes to prosecuting hate crimes, and for taking a small step towards attempting to address pervasive and entrenched racism. And as we know, we still have a long, long way to go. CW: Graphic Descriptions of Violence, Racially Motivated Violence

EWriter: Fiona Guy On a February winters night in the city of Woodstock in Ontario, Canada, two individuals met by chance at a Pizza Parlour. There was an instant connection between them. A spark. But this wasn’t a positive meeting of souls. It wasn’t the start of something beautiful. That night was the start of a rapid descent towards a heart-breaking ending for an innocent 8-year-old girl.

Black Label S2E2: Mother

Black Label S2E2: Mother Black Label S2E2 Ad Free.mp3 Writer: Fiona Guy Content Warning: Graphic Audio, Maternal Filicide The maternal instinct of a mother is an all-encompassing level of emotion. To love, nurture, and protect their child is biologically embedded, a bond that can never be broken. That is how it should be. But life is a complex matrix of relationships, emotions, and decision-making, and the human psyche is a powerful fighting force. Maternal filicide, the murder of a child by their mother, is a murky understudied arena where those natural instincts are replaced with an entirely different kind of drive. A drive that takes away the very life they previously gave so lovingly. Save money with Gabi. Take two minutes right now to see how much you can save on your car and homeowners insurance.
