As its website describes, Sword and Scale covers “the underworld of criminal activity and the demented minds that perform the most despicable and unthinkable actions.” The well-researched, hour-long podcast was first launched in 2013 and is hosted by Mike Boudet. It uses interviews, creepy music, and tons of uncovered audio (like 911 tapes, recorded testimony, and news clips) to delve into the stories behind a wide range of disappearances, murders, conspiracies, and other cases that date as far back as the 19th century to as recently as this year.
