Podcast: Sword and Scale


Sink your teeth into this bad boy! I was hooked from episode one. I'm a big crime show nerd, I watch Criminal Minds and Law & Order: SVU with my mom every week and dabble in true crime on Netflix (which by the way is incredible these days). 

This podcast takes a look at some of the worst, most disturbing stories around. There was a sick two-parter that I could only listen in 20-minute increments and that is saying a lot for me. If you're into crime this podcast is 100% for you!


Sword and Scale is an internet radio show and website covering the dark underworld of crime and the criminal justice system’s response to it.  The show and website were launched January 1st, 2014 and feature stories of murder, abduction, rape and even more bizarre forms of crime.  It’s the purest form of true-crime where nothing is off the table.  Everything from 911 calls to court testimony, interviews with victims and sometimes with perpetrators give listeners a 360-degree look at the entire story.  Told from the narrator’s point of view, Sword and Scale goes beyond the news clips and the sensationalist headlines to give listeners the whole story and deeper insight into the cases it covers than any other medium.
