The River of Crime (Episodes 1–5) is a release by The Residents, originally released online as a five-episode podcast through both iTunes and Cordless Recordings' website. The Residents also sold a two-disc package of blank CD-Rs to burn the episodes and bonus material (via the Cordless site only) for those who wanted a standard audio disc. Later, Mute Records issued a standard audio CD version, without the bonus material from the Cordless release, but with instrumental versions of each of the episodes.

The River of Crime project was an attempt at a noir-style of storytelling, with each episode being a different story that involved crime in some way, with the protagonist of each being a character who "collected" crimes.
