I’m not a UK citizen so the cases, police work and legal system are all very interesting to me and always well done. Th host does have a great voice. There is something mesmerizing about it. I do appreciate the way he brings various characters in the cases to life through their actual quotes. The music on this podcast is unusually haunting and lovely. Excellent true crime podcast.
Thank you host for updating the case of Valerie Graves, who was murdered in her bed, and finding who did it seemed impossible (Season 3, Episode 29). The conclusion was fascinating in that the police speculated it was a random killing, and now it seems a small miracle that the killer was ever caught. More updates, please!
This review is coming from a Southern girl who loves true Crime especially from hosts in another country. Your Podcast is well researched and your narration is very soothing.I recently purchased your audiobook and I hope there will be Volume 2 as I just can’t get enough of your stories.
I listen to podcasts all day at work, trying to drown out the noise around me. the host on this show has a lovely voice I find quite calming to listen to in a stressful environment. I feel like I’ve heard every US true crime story there is to tell, so hearing UK stories has been neat. great job and thank you! I will continue to binge.
Intriguing tales of murder & crime, told fabulously
As someone who avidly listens to several true-crime podcasts, has read this genre of book for decades and watches TV shows dedicated to this subject, I consider myself an amateur expert in the topic. I’m motivated primarily in trying to learn why some people do such horrendous and cruel things to others—and this is one of many areas in which “They Walk Among Us” excels. Living in the US (although I am English), it’s good to learn about crimes I’ve not heard of before. Some subjects aren’t new to me—the Krays, for example, and the Yorkshire Ripper—but most are, which is a refreshing change. It’s fascinating to hear the differences between US & UK laws and justice systems, prison terms and treatment of arrestees. The presenter is terrific: His voice, modulation, annunciation... just about everything is pure perfection. I often find myself sitting in the car, parked in the drive, just so I can listen to a few more minutes before heading into the house and rejoining my real world. Thank you, TWAU team, for continuing to educate, inform and bring interesting stories into listeners’ lives. It’s a passion you do well and one I hope you continue doing for many more years.
Re: Season4, episodes 14 & 15, the two-parter about the murder of Linda Razzell by her partner, Greg, who was found guilty and sentenced to life. Thing is, the story teller never explained why Greg was paroled after 12 years and was allowed to return to his home in New Zealand. Did I miss the reason for this?
If you want a great story that is very well told and has interesting detail and expert analysis-wait!! Who wouldn’t want all that? Well, this most def a podcast for you!! I have listened to three two-part episodes and was absolute riveted! I am so glad I gave podcast a try! I do have my favs and this is now one of them!!!
Re: Season 4, Episodes 9 &10. Like guessing how many jellybeans are in a jar, surely there is also a prize for estimating how many times “Hanratty” is mentioned over the nearly 2-1/2 hours of this two-part podcast. By the way, the story was gripping till the end, though I had little sympathy for JH.
I usually like the stories on They Walk Among Us. I have been listening a fan for a long time, but sometimes the stories are downright tedious. Take Season 4, Episode 8, for example, the endless, boring saga of Dena, the man-eating woman who digested husbands like a good meal. She was so unsympathetic and so annoying that after the second appetizer, I turned it off. So what are this podcast’s best stories? Simply put, the ones where the listener cares about the actors one way or the other. Dena was empty and so was her story.
