NICOLA Tallant’s podcast Crime World has shot into Ireland’s charts in the most popular audio shows on iTunes.

The brand new series has reached the number two spot in true crime and is ranked fourth overall on Ireland’s podcast top streams.

The podcast which is Ireland’s first discussion show about crime has got a five star rating from fans and has attracted rave reviews.

One listener commented: “Nicola Tallant is an exceptional journalist and gangland commentator – very happy to see her having her own platform having listened to her on countless episodes of The Stand with Eamon Dunphy amongst others.”

Tallant has been a regular contributor to Dunphy’s hit show which has been running for almost 1,000 episodes.

Crime World is a mix of interviews with criminals, investigators and journalists from all over the world as well as discussions between Tallant and Sunday World columnist Fr Brian D’Arcy.

The first show which delved into the murky UK underworld and follows the story of Kevin Parle featured an interview with former Scotland Yard Detective Peter Bleksley who revealed how he won’t rest until the fugitive is captured.

On the second show Fr Brian D’Arcy discussed visiting prisoners in jails and described prisons as ‘cess pools of hate.’

The next show which will be released on Sunday will follow a Kilo of cocaine from the jungles of Columbia to the streets of Dublin.

Speaking to the Sunday World, Nicola said: “I’m fascinated with all aspects of crime and I know I’m not alone.

“I hope the listeners will come on this journey with me into some pretty dark corners as we delve deep into the secrets of the underworld and ask the hard questions to investigators, killers and experts in crime.

“I’m delighted to have reached the top position in the crime charts.

“There is plenty of good listening out there but the Sunday World has something unique to add to the conversation.

“There is a good mix of all things criminal in the coming weeks to keep listeners company on a long walk or at the gym.

“Podcasting is a new form of journalism and really it is a way of bringing the listener with you on the quest to get to the bottom of a story. I love podcasts myself and I firmly believe they have a place in the future of media.”
