“That Chapter Podcast” is brought to you by the popular true crime YouTube channel by the same name. Tackling the grisliest cases, horrors, strange stories, and other crimes, the series just started releasing podcast episodes this February. The host, Mike, likes to sprinkle humor in episodes to lighten heavier topics in episodes.
Mike used to post 2 YouTube videos per week and now uploads 1 video a week on average since he’s shifting toward podcasting. Stream the podcast episodes in any order with standalone cases. So far, the episodes run less than an hour on average.
Before getting into two people who took matters into their own hands and sought revenge, Mike shared how the podcast will differ from his YouTube channel. He looks forward to diving deeper into even weirder true crime topics and creepy stories in the series. Mike said he will be joined by special guests from time to time.
