Every Wednesday, we tell a love story that turns into a crime story. Our subjects might start as lovers, friends, or family, but by the end, there's a criminal and a victim. Along the way, we analyze the relationship dynamics and psychology that lead to betrayal, theft, and even murder. Crimes of Passion is part of the Parcast Network, and a production of Cutler Media.

The topics are interesting but the presentation needs work. It feels like listening to an audio book rather than a podcast. There are editing issues with weird “after this” moments that start right back into the story so it feels like someone didn’t proofread their essay before turning it in. Dropping in citations for list such as “types of affairs” from trashy pop psychology references is unnecessary and distracting. Psychology Today is the People Magazine of mental health publications. The narrator’s pronunciation of words ending in g is like nails on a chalkboard. Keep the stories to one episode. I’m not a fan of the 2 part format, especially when a lot of the content is repeated.
So far, so good on content! I like the descriptions provided by the host.
This Podcast takes on both well-known and obscure cases and breaks them down fully. Well Done.
