NEW SHOW: Dark Arenas

Update: 2021-01-2738


Have you ever thought about whose job it is to track international fugitives, hunt child abductors, conduct espionage, or pull human remains from concealed mass graves? Every day thousands of good and decent people work in these Dark Arenas. They’ve chosen professions that grapple with the grotesque, deal with the deviant, and dodge the dangerous. 

In audiochuck’s newest original series, Dark Arenas, you will hear first-hand accounts of what it's like to investigate the darkest crimes and most violent criminals in society. 

This Episode: Devil in the Details

Some federal agents' nine-to-five job is reviewing thousands of images and videos of child sex abuse material. Their meticulous work in this dark arena exposes details hidden within the images that help track and catch predators. In today's episode, we talk one-on-one with the FBI agent whose best tool against child sex predators is the predator.

We’re releasing 8 more full-length, ad-free episodes every Wednesday, exclusively on Stitcher Premium! Just go to and sign up using the promo code ‘ARENAS’ and enjoy one month of Stitcher Premium for FREE when you select a monthly plan.

I had a friend said once "I don't think it happens as much as you think" and my response was "no, it's more". I think this podcast will be a wake up call for people in denial that sexual abuse had become rampant but as a mother I don't be able to listen to this. I am well aware these things are happening but if I deep dive it will make me more of a mess than I already am. 😔

If I were a criminal, these are good things to know to avoid the law

An interesting interview, not helped by a poor interviewer, destroyed by a cloying set of bookends not fit for a second draft of a first-year paper and just insulting in contrast to the subject matter at hand. While I struggle with the ethics of the sheer crime-as-entertainment of Crime Junkies, at least when I listen to that just to laugh at the predictability of Ashley's tone and cadence, I can semi-justify it as knowing it's just a book report: even if they're not directly plagiarizing anymore, there's no journalism, interviews, or new information of any sort being presented. Here is actually an interesting concept with terrible presentation, and I'd have to pay (and switch apps?) to hear it? Enjoy, all you fools who complain about ads. I'll keep appreciating them for making most content accessible.

Usually love their podcasts but I'm personally not interested in paying for premium. There's too many good free true crime podcasts with ads--and ads do not bother me.
