Top 10 Episodes of 2015

Title 18: Word Crimes Podcast LogoThe Title 18: Word Crimes podcast had a great 2015.

We produced 11 episodes this year, season two of Word Crimes. Scott Detrow voiced stories by the likes of Paul Brazill, Rob Hart, Merry Jones, Jon McGoran, Todd Robinson, Johnny Shaw, and Duane Swierczynski — one hell of a great lineup.

And in December, we crossed the 5,000 download mark. Scott and I are thrilled by that. Our sincere thanks to everyone who’s listening.

Record-Breaking Month

March 2015 is a record-breaking month for the Word Crimes podcast!

We had more downloads in March than in any previous month, led by Scott Detrow’s excellent reading of Duane Swierczynski’s “Death Runs Faster” and the two Three Minutes of Terror episodes (part 1 and part 2) recorded live at NoirCon 2014.

A huge thanks from Scott and me to everyone who listened to Word Crimes this month. If you can spare a minute, we’d also love it if you could rate the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher — ratings are important to help new people find the podcast. (We’re partial to honest, five-star reviews.)

Thanks again!

Coming soon on Word Crimes: Jon McGoran’s terrifying “Appetite”!
