Like a real life detective story.  I've found most true crime podcasts prefer to focus on the gruesome details of crimes, and "getting inside the mind of the killer" or whatever, and gloss over the part I find interesting, which is how the criminals actually got caught, or how they were found guilty.

These are good: https://serialpodcast.org/

I listened to serial.  I really liked it but its actually the opposite of what I'm looking for at the moment, because in in the first case we don't really know what happened.  In the second case the only mystery is why he did what he did, and the question is just how much you want to believe him.  Both seasons are all about who do you believe, which leaves me unsatisfied.

I'm looking for stories about cases or other mysteries that were cracked and the work that went into doing it.

How about Criminal. http://www.thisiscriminal.com/  Early episodes were kind of investigation heavy, they have now kind of moved into a Profile of the person stage. Still intriguing IMO.

A friend of our family was on a few cases for "Cold Justice." That was heavily focused on investigation and motivation to resolve old case files. It's a TV show, not podcast, though.
