Youtube Channel Recommendations for True Crime Enthusiasts

True crime is defined as the genre of a book, television show, movie, podcast, etc where the author retells the chilling and sometimes nauseating stories of real-life criminals of the past and present, some of which have walked our Earth while being seen as your average man/woman.

A single crime or multiple crimes of cult leaders, serial killers, thieves, etc are discussed within a half-hour to hour time span. The best true crime authors present the details of cases while digging into the past, motives, and childhood of criminals to help the watcher gain a better understanding of why the crime came to be.

Literary devices such as auditory and visual imagery are employed to create a podcast-like setting while telling the stories. I understand the struggle of watching hour-long documentaries that make you disengaged, instead, you can spend this time becoming acquainted with Youtubers like Bailey Sarian and Christina Randall who tell the story at fast paces while adding in their analysis.

The authors discuss a wide variety of cases. Popularized stories or victims that aren’t being covered by large news websites/gaining attention on social media can be found across Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, and YouTube platforms.

Listed below are some of the top true crime YouTubers that I watch daily, while they discuss some of the world’s most notorious serial killers like Jeffrey Dahmer and Richard Ramirez ( The Night Stalker) and inform the watcher of their life before the murders and after incarceration.

1. Bailey Sarian

2. Christina Randall

3. Eleanor Neale

4. Kendall Rae

5. Bella Fiori

6. Brooke Makenna

7. Danielle Kirsty

8. Stephanie Soo(Missmangobutt)

9. Hailey Elizabeth

If you’re someone who loves connecting the dots when watching thriller/horror movies, I recommend that you watch YouTube videos that revolve around this genre. Be sure to grab your favorite snacks and drinks, I hope you enjoy watching the Youtubers that I have listed.
