My first podcast

This is literally the first podcast I’ve started listening too. I recently explored podcasts for my new longer commute and I am obsessed! I’m just really afraid of what’s going to happen when I’m done binge listening and have to actually wait the whole week!

Plagiarism is NOT cute!!

I’ve been listening to them for 2 years but recently found out from “Let’s Taco Bout Crime” podcast that Ashley Flowers is taking other people’s resources and steals scripts word for word. I was so thrown off by this especially because I listened to Crime Junkie every week!! Don’t take credit for other people’s hard work, it’s absolutely sad to see people do this to one another!I highly suggest everyone to do their research before showing her support. Her plagiarism was also called out on Variety, NY Times, Buzzfeed, and even their own hometown newspaper Indianapolis Monthly!! Just google “Ashley Flowers Plagiarism” and you’ll find out everything you need to know.

Love it but...

I love this podcast, I think Ashley does a really good job of explaining the cases thoroughly. However, why is Britt even a part of this? Honestly she offers nothing but asking obvious questions just to insert herself into the podcast. The side comments she makes just make me cringe and offers no other insight into the case.

Love but also Eh

The fake crying in some episodes drives me crazy. Britt’s reactions as if she doesn’t know what is coming next drives me crazy. Sometimes they talk so fast I think I’ve hit my speed button by accident. Other than that I love the constant and appreciate how they get to the point right away. Also like that they attempt to seek out lesser known stories. I really do enjoy the ladies but some stuff is over the top. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Well made!

They definitely do their research & have very well told stories. They do a great job of giving listeners ways to help & highlighting stories of minorities who often are swept under the rug. Overall just a well done podcast.

Love this podcast! 🤩

I’ve literally NEVER been a podcast person but I decided to give it another try just a few days ago and this was the first true crime podcast I came across and I fell in LOVE! I haven’t stopped listening to it at work, in the car, at home. I love the dynamic with Ashley and Britt and the storytelling is straightforward but super intriguing! idk if this is still a thing but I just started listening and decided to give it a try @heyits_lex_ (twitter handle)

Reconsider

Please reconsider doing the Presidential podcast. I'm a long time Patron as are a few friends that I've introduced to the show. Many of us will cancel. I don't care about your politics. Vote where you want to vote. But, there is enough of this out there. Don't say this isn't about Trump. It is. You are disguising it with others in a list, but it's about Trump. You are one of the 2 best podcasts that I listen to. Amazing storyteller and you seem like a kind person. Just quit with the politics.I've been alive for many Presidents and many of them were very flawed. The difference between them and Trump was the media coverage and spin. This insanity must end and I really hope you can recognize that we listen to you because of your narrate a crime story. You do it better than 99% of the people I've heard. But, everyone I asked about this said the same thing....I'm out if that's the direction she goes. It's not worth it.

Literally enough

Hey Ashley,I enjoy your podcast. I have been listening for a long time and have also subscribed to Supernatural. I really need you to stop saying literally if you can. You don’t always use it incorrectly, but it is like a tick and it it driving me nuts, figuratively.

Good stories but kinda annoying

I love listening to the stories and crimes I’ve never heard of. However could do without the recurring “girl!” And fake surprised “WHAT!!!” Like they don’t know the full story ahead of time 🙄.

Love it!!

Last year when I was looking for a podcast, none caught my attention. I would change it after a minute of listening or so, until I found Crime Junkie!! I was hooked within the first minute and every since that day I listen every week! I have listened to all the episodes and after I’m done with one, I can’t wait until the next one. I love The relationship between Ashley and Brit and I hope I can meet them some day. They truly tell all the stories with great detail and input, if you’re looking for a crime podcast this one is the best one to exist!

Like, it’s hard to listen to

Obviously most everyone has some kind of verbal tick that mostly goes unnoticed until it’s pointed out. But if you’re going to be someone who talks for a living, at some point you have to realize that you use the word “like” every seventh or eighth word, and work on using it less. With this podcast, it’s so bad that I often get to the end and realize I didn’t retain much of the story. Throughout each episode, the co-host asks questions that are so clearly scripted it completely takes you out of the story, then when she gets the answer her response is frequently “wait...what?!?” Don’t pretend to be shocked, we all know you know the story. Would be one star, but they do very occasionally talk about a case that’s not well known. Mostly a rehash of huge cases we’ve heard a hundred times.

Best ever!

This is my all time favorite podcast, and I can’t find another one that even compares. Ashley and Brit have such a great relationship, and are such great story tellers. Makes my Monday’s a little more bearable to hear a chilling true crime story!
