Amy Townsend, host of True Crime Recaps podcast


Hi, I’m Amy and I’m freaking fascinated with true crime. So glad you came along! Now we can catch up on who did what to who (and how!) together.

Bios are boring, right? Instead, I’m going to let you in on 10 fun facts about me:

  1. My degree is in Broadcast Journalism. And I have a Masters in Marketing.

  2. I earned money for college working as a funeral home receptionist.

  3. I love Greek mythology. (I even wrote a YA book about it!)

  4. Fav movie quote, “Why am I the only one reacting?!” -Emma Stone, The Rocker

  5. Beauty and skincare products are my crack.

  6. I’ve had 50 different jobs, including ice cream truck driver, Walt Disney World tour guide, magician’s assistant, Renaissance Faire actress, Extras Casting Director for feature films, and bartender at Coyote Ugly, to name only a few.

  7. I grew up in a log cabin.

  8. Doritos are the only thing I would bring to a deserted island.

  9. I’m a murderino! (Duh)

  10. My attention span is short & my patience is even shorter! That’s why I’m passionate about giving you all the crime information you can handle in less than an hour.

about the show

True Crime Recaps is the most fun you can have talking about murder. Every week, Amy Townsend explains and explores your favorite true crimes in only 30 minutes. With all the case facts, highlights, audio and commentary (with a big helping of snark) you won’t even miss the other 30-45 minutes. Sure, you could spiral down the rabbit hole trying to get as much information about a case as you can, or you can let Amy do that for you so you can get to bed at a decent hour. After all, you’ve got a lot of murders to solve and you’re (probably) busy AF.

And did we mention that there will be snark? And swearing. But mostly snark.
