SHOWING OTHER CRIME PODCASTS HOW ITS DONE!!!
New fresh on topic with guests who have the talk and the experience to back it up! You get so involved you want it not to end! Make it longer PLEASE! Only sad thing is being Canadian it's shocking and sad to me how much crime we have. Being in Ottawa anything local you can report would be of interest. Mafia (what Mafia? LOL) etc you have nowhere to hide! Take heart though listeners! We are not the States. Not yet anyways.
More Is Needed
I’m interested in crime; specifically, in how we deal with the dark side of human behaviour; and, is our response appropriate and effective? Reading and clicking through webpages on crime is, unfortunately, just not compelling enough to keep doing it; podcasts are an excellent solution. This is a very good podcast for keeping track of shocking Canadian crime; it’s the only one around!?! It doesn’t help our society to ignore crime because you don’t have to deal with these awful people in your nice town or workplace; baddies can be anywhere &, ideally, we should be able to identify them before they strike. I’d be giving it 5 stars if there were very regular episodes. I would like to hear much more about outrageous crimes in Canada, particularly killers; but really, all sorts.
Recently discovered this podcast. Very interesting discussions/perspective on Canadian crime stories. Looking forward to many more episodes.
