True crime fans out there – there’s a new podcast from Audioboom and Main Event Media that you need to hear about. Crime Weekly is a new, upcoming podcast presented by Investigation Discovery. The podcast will premiere on Friday, December 4th. It will explore current events, as well as touch upon past cases that made headlines.
Crime Weekly will feature 24 episodes with a new episode available each Friday. Retired police detective and private investigator Derrick Levasseur (who I interviewed a couple of months ago) joins true crime YouTube creator Stephanie Hawlowe.
Levasseur expressed, in regards to starting the podcast:
“True crime exploration and discovery is more than just a hobby for me – it is my everyday passion and profession. Partnering with Stephanie to explore cases from a fresh perspective each week has been both illuminating and sobering, and we can’t wait for listeners to join us on our search for more information.”
Harlowe also commented:
“After years of researching past cases on my YouTube channel, it has become abundantly clear that too often we focus on the perpetrator of crimes, and not enough on the victims. Through our podcast, Derrick and I hope to bring their stories to the forefront and raise awareness for cases long gone cold or explore different aspects of well-known cases along the way.”
Jimmy Fox, the President of Main Event Media; also put out a statement:
“The addition of Crime Weekly to our growing roster of podcasts is extremely exciting for all of us true crime buffs. The passion, determination, and level of detail Derrick and Stephanie bring to each and every case reeled me in. Our ambition is to create an interactive series that will serve as a call to action for our listeners.”
Crime Weekly will be available on all platforms you listen to podcasts on.
