Today we’d like to introduce you to Mysteretical Podcast.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
We originally met on a Zoom Game Night with some mutual friends at the start of the pandemic. We ended up bonding over true crime and how we both loved watching Unsolved Mysteries as kids (yes, kids). And, jokingly, we said “hey, we should start a podcast!” and that’s how Mysteretical was born. It was a lot of trial and error at first but we have persevered and remained consistent and respectful to our listeners and each other for our first year – our Anniversary Episode is in October!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has been reasonably smooth as far as actually creating the content itself – it’s having a healthy balance within our own work and personal lives outside of the podcast. We still struggle with that, but we always try to take a bit off of the others shoulders when needed and we haven’t shied away from asking for help from willing friends and loved ones. Community is very important.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We specialize in mysteries. There are a lot of very important conversations that have happened in the making of Mysteretical. On top of actually creating and editing the content, we both work very hard to keep educating ourselves and tell stories that no one else really hears – because they deserve to be heard just as much as the popular ones that it seems every true crime podcast covers. We focus on mysteries that are unsolved, which can be frustrating at times because there’s no happy ending. Granted, it’s true crime, there are few happy endings anyways, but they don’t always end in justice and sometimes they end in more questions than what we started with. We set ourselves apart by putting our own theories together – researching outside of news articles – and find the cases that haven’t seen the light of day and share them.
How do you define success?
By doing something, we enjoy doing. Starting important conversations with each other and within our community and by getting new eyes to look at unsolved cases from different angles – maybe one day we’ll help solve one!
