When it comes to true crime podcasts, Crime Beat is a winner. Since 2019, host Nancy Hixt, a crime reporter for Global Calgary, has gone beyond the headlines of some of Canada’s most high-profile cases to share details about police investigations and prosecutions while centring victims’ voices. “We focus on telling these stories in a way that honours the victims and shines a light in the darkest places, which makes this show different,” says Hixt. “I think people see and respect that.” With three seasons and 11 million global downloads (and counting), the award-winning podcast has now been adapted into a Global TV documentary series, which was recently picked up by Hulu.

Listen to Crime Beat wherever you get your podcasts; new episodes are released bi-weekly.
