Crime Junkie Podcast
You are obsessed with all things crime related. It started out as a general interest but now you have this true-crime-shaped-hole in your life that no amount of radio segments, podcasts, or documentaries can fill. And the more true crime media you consume the more you crave it.
You’re the one at the gym looking inconspicuous running to stories about murder instead of music like a normal human. You’re the one telling your friends “fun facts” about the most notorious murder that took place in the city you’re visiting when all they want to talk about is where they’re getting dinner. You don’t read anymore because you’ve already consumed all the good mystery books and freaking Gillian Flynn is just living her life and not thinking about your needs! (Sorry Gillian, I miss you.) You do a thorough internet search on all potential friends and or lovers and get a little bummed out when you don’t find anything juicy. And you’re pretty sure you missed your true life’s calling to be a detective.
Yep, you are a Junkie!
