"Rabia, how..." do we become as impressive as you some day?! Rabia Chaudry is an attorney, advocate, and author of the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, Adnan's Story. Not to mention, Rabia also hails as Executive Producer of the HBO documentary, The Case Against Adnan Syed.

TBH, we all have a huge crush on Bob Ruff. He's a rugged former fire chief – who also fights for the wrongfully convicted. Can you say SWOON?! Bob hosts the renowned podcast Truth & Justice, which investigates the cases of those who potentially have been wrongfully incarcerated. He also helms the podcast True Crime Binge, where he chats with weekly guest hosts from other popular true crime podcasts. (Obsessed Network's Amber Hunt, Maggie Freleng, Gillian Pensavalle, and Patrick Hinds have all made appearances!)
Rebecca Lavoie and Kevin Flynn host the podcast Crime Writers On... on their own network, Partners in Crime Media. In this show, Rebecca and Kevin, along with cohosts Lara Bricker and Toby Ball, offer their two cents on true crime television shows and other pop culture through a true crime lens. Bonus points: this pair is married! They also write true crime books together. Talk about a dynamic true crime duo!!
Brandi Egan and Kristin Caruso are obsesssssed with lawsuits – so they created a podcast about them! In each episode of their weekly show Let’s Go to Court, Brandi and Kristin talk about two different lawsuits that they find extra "juicy." Their podcast launched in 2018, but their friendship goes waayyyyy back.
