As you course know, the true crime genre has exploded since The Blotter first launched in 2011. Kids, ask your parents -- back then, to scratch our itch we often had to resort to pulp paperbacks and...
and episodes America’s Most Wanted. It was a tough time, but we prevailed.
Eight years later, we’re confronted with an embarrassment riches. Fans true crime can scroll until their fingers cramp down Netflix’s streaming options, read well-researched purple-proseless books on serial slayings and Silicon Valley scandals, and drive coast to coast without even making a dent in the current bounty true crime podcasts.
That’s why we’re launching Best Evidence. Now, more than ever, you need a guide to what true crime is worth your time - and that’s what we’re here to do.
Every Wednesday, free subscribers will receive the scoop on the latest The Blotter Presents podcast. We’ll also send them one more email throughout the week, at our discretion.
Paid subscribers get way more. For $5 per month, or $55 per year, every weekday you’ll receive original analysis and reporting as well as a painstakingly curated look at the latest news in the true crime genre. You’ll also receive full access to our archives, and will be able to comment on every issue -- both benefits available only to those who sign up for the full package.
Best Evidence is solely supported by subscribers (though, if you’d like to purchase advertising either in Best Evidence or on The Blotter Presents, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org), so -- not to put too fine a point on it -- it can only exist if people pay to subscribe. Please consider signing up to do so today.
