The rise of true crimes podcasts and series have grown over the last five years, being much more popular with women than men. 

In fact, stats indicate that despite fifty-six percent of podcast listeners being male, it's the ladies who contribute the most to True Crime listeners. 

A Twitter study of True Crime listeners showed that bar one podcast in the genre, women largely dominated the sector.

But it comes as no surprise as there's a whole section of Tumblr dedicated to it. 

That's why we can't WAIT for Netflix's new documentary on serial killer, Ted Bundy.

We will be treated to a four-part series investigating his life, 30 years after his execution for his crimes.

Netflix will be releasing "Conversation with A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes" in the US on January 24, 2019 – the dates for IE/UK have yet to be announced.

Taking to Twitter, the streaming giant promised that the new series would take us into "the mind of the infamous serial killer".  

The look into Ted's crimes and the media frenzy that followed his trial and sentencing was directed by Joe Berlinger.

The new Netflix release will include previously unheard audio interviews with Ted when he was on death row in Florida.

In the 1970s, the serial killer wrecked havoc in the US and although he finally admitted to killing 30 people, the number of victims unknown and is suspected to be higher.

We will definitely be watching this one.

Generation Why is basically the don of all true crime podcasts. 

Covering murders and strange disappearances, the dastardly duo who present each episode delve deep into the underbelly of disturbed human behavior with each episode.

As well as divulging the details of some of Australia's most horrifying murders, the podcast also examines difficult subjects like sexual offences and drug-related crime.

If you're fascinated by serial killers and feel there's a criminologist in you only dying to get out, then chances are you're constantly on the hunt for documentaries and TV shows which delve into the darkest recesses of the human mind.

And that's where this new series comes in.

Ladies, David Fincher has returned to Netflix with MINDHUNTER, a rigorous study of the damaged psyches of serial killers and the innovative FBI Agents who attempt to understand and catch them.

So, what can you expect from the man who brought us Seven, Gone Girl and House of Cards?

MINDHUNTER follows ambitious FBI agent Holden Ford, played by Jonathan Groff, as he struggles to comprehend incarcerated killers, so that he might use this knowledge to catch others.

He’s teamed with experienced agent Bill Tench, played by Holt McCallany, in the Behavioural Science Unit and will work with his sometimes reluctant partner to find new methods of investigation.

Together they will meet some of America’s gravest killers – and face the cynicism and scorn of the tradition-bound hierarchy of the 1970s’ Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Ford will risk empathizing with ‘evil’ in order to save lives. But, as Tench says, when arguing the case for their work: “How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”

All 10 episodes of MINDHUNTER became available to Netflix members worldwide as of yesterday, so if you didn't spend last night with your eyes glued to it, you know what to do tonight.
