Nicola Tallant’s podcast Crime World has once again proved a hit with listeners after it got into the top ten most popular audio shows on iTunes.

The series has ranked second in Apple Podcasts True Crime category in Ireland and is now ninth overall on Ireland’s podcast top streams, ahead of The 2 Jonnies Podcast, Graham Norton and Brendan O’Connor.

The podcast has proven to be a massive hit with numerous rave reviews and five star ratings from fans.

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, follows the story of Kevin Parle and features 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 discusses visiting prisoners in jails and describing prisons as ‘cess pools of hate.’

Another show was a fascinating description of the journey of a kilo of cocaine from the jungles of Columbia to the streets of Dublin.

The most recent episode of Crime World features a ‘murder that broke all rules with a male victim, two unlikely killers and a family torn apart’.

It focusses on the killing of dad Jason Corbett, the Limerick man who died on August 2, 2015 after sustaining fatal head injuries in the flat he shared with his second wife Molly Martens in Walburg, North Carolina.

'Now the killing of dad Jason Corbett is to be played out again in a US courtroom as murderers Molly Martens and her father Tom make a bid for freedom’, Nicola’s podcast description explains.

‘But behind the legal tape lies the shocking evidence of the sheer brutality of Jason’s death. Ralph Riegel, Irish Independent journalist and author of My Brother Jason, unravels the lies and intrigue that turned a fairytale into a nightmare.
