“Unsolved Mysteries” fans have a new destination to fill their nights — and ears, mainly — with fright. “True Crime Obsessed” podcast host Patrick Hinds and Gillian Pensavalle will begin recapping the popular Netflix series on special weekly episodes launching Oct. 8 on Hinds’ podcast company, the Obsessed Network.
“True Crime Obsessed” is Hinds’ platforms most popular (of four) podcasts. The network recently produced “Obsessed With Abducted in Plain Sight,” which recapped Netflix docuseries “Abducted in Plain Sight.”
Skye Borgman, who directed “Abducted in Plain Sight,” co-hosted the “Obsessed With Abducted in Plain Sight” podcast with Hinds.
The “Unsolved Mysteries” reboot of the original late 1980s broadcast show debuted on Netflix July 1. For the 12-episode podcast, Hinds and Pensavalle will do “deep dives” into every case featured in the Netflix reboot and provide comedic commentary, according to the Obsessed Network.
“I’ve been a huge fan of the ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ series since I saw their very first episode years ago, the show itself holds a significant influence to the true crime industry as a whole,” Hinds told TheWrap. “We’re honored that we get to expand on ‘True Crime Obsessed’s’ episodes to include commentary on the new iterations of such a legendary series that’s created an immense impact in the true-crime community.”
Hinds launched the Obsessed Network, which is based in New York City, in March 2020. Though both are popular destinations for fans of true crime, Netflix is not affiliated with the Obsessed Network podcasts.
