So confused.

I’m a pretty big fan of true crime podcasts in general, and this show is often number one on the Apple podcast lists so I thought I’d give it a try. I went back to one of the early episodes just because it sounded interesting, and then listened to a recent episode to make sure I gave it a fair chance. Clearly I am missing something here. This has to be one of the most irritating podcasts I’ve tried to date. Both stories left out key details and left me with a feeling of unfinished business. There’s also a sleepover-creepy-story-vibe happening here that may appeal to 13 year olds but I find to be superficial and grating. I wouldn’t be surprised if a future episode deals with a hook hand left in a car door. Also Brit’s completely disingenuous and inane comments are the absolute worst. I would honestly rather listen to a couple of 13 year olds discuss the local news.

Gross!

I used to enjoy this podcast for the most part but the lack of dialogue between Ashley and Brit made it boring at times. I am extremely disgusted to find out that after all this time they acted like angels because they helped some of the victims. That is amazing and I commend them for that.. BUT profiting off of your fans via Patreon, merch, overpriced meet and greets, etc while presenting them with plagiarized content is just plain wrong! Very disappointing!

Hands Down Best Crime Podcast

I literally just started to listen to podcasts (I know, I’ve been living under a rock!) about 2 months ago and lucky for me I came across Crime Junkie. These ladies are THE BEST storytellers. I have tried to listen to some other crime podcasts, only because I have almost listened to all of the Crime Junkie episodes, but all of them fall short on the storytelling end. I love listening to them and I tell all of my podcasting friends about this series! Keep up the good work!

You’ve been exposed.

Sad that you used crappy research (with obviously little work), plagiarism, and purchasing reviews and downloads to scam thousands of fans out of enough money to quit your jobs and live the good life. Maybe you’ll be on an episode of Swindled!

Bummer

Stopped listening a few weeks ago when the comments got repetitive. The prupper segments are unbearable, Brit serves absolutely no purpose beyond saying Full Body Chills every ten minutes. To find about the plagiarism is unacceptable

Best podcast

My absolute favourite podcast, I’ve listened to all of them at lest twice! They’re voices are so calming and I listened to them when I’m going to work or just doing stuff around the house. All my friends that I’ve told about this podcast also love it :)

love this podcast

i used to be terrified of true crime because it's just so real and i was always scared something like that would happen to me. but the way these ladies talk about these crimes is in a way that brings awareness to cold cases and focuses on getting justices for families with lost loved ones. it has made me want to listen to these cases to be aware of what goes on in our world and be aware of families that are still suffering and need help!!! thank you ashley and britt for bringing light to these cases. keep it up!!

The narration is terrible. I feel like I’m back in high school with all the “likes” and uptalk.

Can’t listen to other podcasts now

This is a very good show right from episode one. Been listening for the past year. They were ready from the start, a lot of other podcasts have to find their groove before they have a great show without straying from the stories. I listen to other podcasts and crime junkies has basically ruined them for me with theirs been so well written in the way they catalogue stories from start to finish. Ashley and Brit make it clear from the start that they are re-telling stories. Many reviews accuse them of plagiarism because they believe the citations are not ‘at par’. These are stories being retold these and not police officers telling the stories; these are women with a passion to tell you the truth the best they know it. You can only say a story so many times and find a different collection of words to rephrase. Which is why they list their sources and always have. I’ve never felt I needed to write a review because their work speaks for itself. But for those of you reading the reviews just take a listen. Brit and ash just remember the dumbest people on the internet are the loudest

Disappointed

Very unhappy hosts have been quoting and paraphrasing primary source material without acknowledgement- especially as they are making a lot of money from it. Their response was insulting to audience and creators alike. I think they’re lost their moral compass in pursuit of cash
