Addictive!

Crime Beat is amazing! Nancy Hixt has a genuine way of connecting to either the victim or the victim’s family members. You get to know the victims so well that it almost seems like you could’ve known them! And because of the relationships Nancy forms with the victims and their families, it makes the traumatic stories that are being told more personal and impactful. I can’t speak for the victims and their families, but as an outsider, I would feel safe talking to Nancy and have trust that she would tell my story with dignity and respect. Can’t wait for season 2!

P.S. Nancy actually gets back if you comment or ask a question on her social media... I totally fan-girled last night when she DM’d me after I wrote something about season 2 on Facebook... I’ve only ever listened to her on my car audio, so to me she’s famous haha!

Great podcast!

I’m familiar with Nancy’s “regular” reporting as I live in her station’s home market, so I’m also familiar with a lot of the stories the podcast expands on. I really enjoy her delivery (it took a little to adjust to hear her speak at a normal pace instead of rushing through a 30-second news spot on air) and the connection she clearly develops with her subjects. I’m always impressed at how involved she is with her stories and their victims, yet manages to maintain her sanity - as much as the stories affect me, I can’t imagine how being immersed in them, sometimes for years, must impact her. I’ve always enjoyed her reporting, and this podcast just reinforces how dedicated and adept she is at her “Crime Beat”. Can’t wait for season 2!
