What exactly is Obscura: Black Label? The Black Label is intended to be a more raw…dark experience. And, while philosophies from the free version of the podcast like respecting victims and not idolizing killlers will be retained, there will be less compromise. That means a focus on boundary pushing writing and, when applicable, censorship free audio clips. And…to be honest. Some of this content may not be for you. If the Oba Chandler episodes taught me anything, there are those with more…delicate sensibilities when it comes to true crime.
But don’t confuse this mission statement, Obscura: Black is not intended to be “edgy”. While we plan to release our riskiest coverage there, it would be hackery to force it.
The Black label, to sum it up, is intended for the more hardcore true crime fan. Those who want true crime stories with a darker bent. The point is…this is Osbscura straight with no chaser. For the listeners that like a bit more gristle in the steak that is the true crime genre.
When I first started covering True Crime part of the reason why is that I have in quantifying and cataloging the darkness in the world around us. Believe it or not these stories have been a source of unrest for me. I don’t take them lightly. I obsess with true crime as a coping mechanism. But with time I’ve felt some level of restraints on this outlet with the main feed.
Enter: Obscura: Black Label.
To start you can expect Black Label episodes to drop about once a month. With increased support the number and length of these episodes can be expected to increase.
