    So much negativity, get over yourself!

    This podcast used to be interesting but now is so full of negative opinions, bashing and narcissism. It’s too much, get over yourself! You have definitely lost me as a listener, and now I can understand why you were being pushed out of the true crime podcast community. Your opinions and views are hateful and you need to seek help!

    OK

    The stories are well picked and all relevant information is given and the recollections always flow well.HOWEVER:Would be good if the narrator/writer realised they have a world audience and not everyone has as backward and arbitrary view on things as he/they may do. I guess you don’t speak for the average American. Locking up everyone and throwing away the key is not the answer to all of societies ills and to belittle a whole country’s justice system and portray it as soft is a little disingenuous.Maybe soften the massive opinionated segments.

    BLACK LIVES MATTER

    extremely disturbed to hear the host try and have a mature conversation about the black lives matter movement. Episode 169 is an atrocious display of ignorance. Won’t be listening anymore. This podcast was great until you realize what a hateful, ignorant and racist person the host is. Not the first time he’s said something completely disgusting and it won’t be the last. This person is not qualified in ANY way to be making statements about mental illness, racism, sexism or ableism. I’m out, I don’t support bigotry.

    Great podcast buuutttt

    I have listened to nearly every episode of this podcast and regard it as being high caliber and well-deserving of its high rating.However, this most recent episode, 171, left me feeling slighted. As a Canadian, I found the episode to be quite dismissive of the Canadian police service. The little quip about our Mounties and their “silly hats,” was unnecessary. The mispronunciation of Regina as well as referring to Canada as Canadia when scoffing at the mental health policies within our judicial system came off as very ignorant. Regarding the Vince Li case, the mental health system had failed him. He had sought help over 5 years and although symptoms of schizophrenia were observed by many, little was done to help him. He was discharged after ten years of treatment. The podcast made it sound like he walked free shortly after. I’ve loved this podcast, but this one seemed as though it was researched with bias and hastily produced.

    Has kinda just turned into a big rant from an angry dude who thinks all his opinions are 100% true facts.

    Narcissistic Host

    What was with all of the bashing of Canada in this latest episode? The host needs to leave personal opinion out of these stories. It’s downright embarrassing. Not the first time he’s done this and certainly not the last.

    My favourite podcast

    I’d give this podcast 10 stars if I could! It’s by far my favourite and the best true crime podcast out there. So much so that other podcasts recommended it haha. Mike (the host) and the team do a fantastic job. They manage to create a an eerie chilling atmosphere and pull you into each case. I could talk about how great this podcast is all day. Do yourself a favour and start listening now.

    Started strong, gone downhill

    I Initially loved the way that the host spoke about cases with sensitivity and impartiality. Sadly, as the show has continued, the cases have become far more sensationalized. At times, I’ve found the hosts’ manner quite condescending and dehumanizing. It’s disappointing to watch a great podcast gradually becoming more biased and insensitive.

    Why support Jeffree star?

    Supporting this individual definitely leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Why is he even here, I don’t see what he can actually add to this podcast, there are so many other popular youtubers that would be so much better if a choice. He is a rude and hateful individual and I’m sad to see the hosts want someone like that around.

    Listen if you like true crime but with caution

    Some of the episodes are well done – obviously morbid but reasonably respectful, but others are downright uncomfortable, not due to the content but due to the host’s occasional comments that betray his derision for certain groups and social movements. There are rare moments with definite misogynist undertones or really offensive ideas about mental illness that have caused me to take long breaks from this podcast. I still listen sometimes but never recommend to people because of the sometimes questionable handling. I started listening because the podcast advertised itself as being commentary/analysis on crime & justice - it is definitely not that.

    Beware - Addictive!

    The best podcast ever. Literally not a bad episode. Mike does an awesome job hooking you in the beginning of each episode. No other true crime podcast compares to Sword and Scale!
