My Favorite Podcasts by Debra Sennefelder
There were two inspirations for writing THE CORPSE WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, the fourth book in the Food Blogger Mystery series. The first was my fascination with podcasts, and the second was my interest in cold cases. Today I’m going to share with you five podcasts I enjoy listening to.
In the book, Hope’s old high school friend, Devon Markham, returns to Jefferson. She has a podcast called Search for the Missing. Now she’s ready to tackle the one missing person’s case that has haunted her for twenty years – her mother’s.
She reconnects with Hope and asks for her help in finding the truth about her mother’s disappearance. At first, Hope is reluctant to get involved. A lot is going on between her blog, teaching her first blogging course, and her budding relationship with Ethan Cahill, the police chief. And because she’s been involved in a few murder investigations already, she’s had enough true crime to last her a long time.
However, when Devon disappears just like her mother had, Hope is determined to find out what happened to both mother and daughter.
Unlike Hope, who wasn’t into podcasts when the book opens, I’ve been very interested in them for a few years. I first started listening to podcasts about the craft of writing and then discovered true crime. Now I subscribe to several, so there’s always a new episode to listen to when I’m doing chores around the house or outside in the garden. When I see the notifications pop up on my phone’s screen to let me know there are new podcasts, I am almost excited to do laundry.
Ready to find out my top five faves? Here we go.
My favorite wellness podcast is Flipping 50. The host, Debra Atkinson, has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to women’s fitness. Her show is around under thirty minutes and has a nice mix of guests.
My favorite writing podcast is Write Your Best Book. Host Christina Kaye has great episodes ranging from writing story arcs for series to how to build a marketing platform to plot.
My favorite true crime is My Favorite Murder. The hosts Karen Kilgariif and George Hardstark explore murders from all over the country. The topic is horrible but giving a voice to the victims draws me to true crime podcasts.
My favorite bookish podcast is Author Stories with Hank Gardner. I discovered this podcast years ago, and I was beyond thrilled to get booked on the show to talk about the Food Blogger Mystery series. I love Hank’s interview style and the wide-range of authors he speaks with.
My favorite cozy-focused podcast is Cozy Ink with Leah Bailey. This was also a podcast I was on, and I love how she formats her interviews. There’s typically a brief interview about the author’s book and then a second interview with the author that gives writing tips.
There you have my top five podcasts that are an automatic listen. Do you listen to podcasts? What are some of your favorite ones? Please leave them in the comments section.

Food blogger Hope Early takes on a cold case that’s heating up fast . . .
Building on her recipe for success with her food blog, Hope at Home, Hope is teaching her first blogging class at the local library in Jefferson, Connecticut. She’s also learning about podcasts, including a true-crime one called Search for the Missing, hosted by Hope’s childhood friend, Devon Markham. Twenty years ago on Valentine’s Day, right here in Jefferson, Devon’s mom disappeared and was never found. Finally Devon has returned to solve the mystery of what happened to her mother—and she asks Hope to help.
The next day Hope discovers Devon’s apartment has been ransacked. Her laptop with the research on her mother’s cold case is missing, and Devon is nowhere to be found. When her friend’s body is later discovered in a car wreck, Hope is convinced it’s no accident. Clearly, Devon was too close to the truth, and the cold-blooded killer is still at large in Jefferson. Now it’s up to Hope to find the guilty party—before the food blogger herself becomes the next subject of another true-crime podcast . . .
Includes Recipes from Hope’s Kitchen!
