Love it!

Always brilliant and insightful! I absolutely appreciate all the deep dives, the trauma-informed pro-victim lens, and the healthy dose of feminism. Keep up the amazing work you three!

Bullying

Liked the topics that are covered on this podcast but it is soo off putting they way they treat Lisa. Not ok listening to bullying. I appreciate the knowledge that is provided in many different areas but the cutting off guests who speak on the show is embarrassing. This podcast has taken a turn for the worst. Not going to listen anymore

Guys, easy on the men bashing...(edited)

I agree with another reviewer who got tired of hearing about how horrible men are. Some are. Yes. But not all. In fact, most aren’t. And perhaps it would be refreshing (albeit unpopular in this social climate), to learn of a case where the woman is the perpetrator; not because she was coerced or abused, but because she was as twisted and sadistic as her male counterpart.(…..) I will amend my original review somewhat. Since reading Jess Hill’s book “See What You Made Me Do”, her chapter on women perpetrators answered everything for me (and I thought it relevant to comment about it here). Although there are some female perpetrators out there, the vast majority are men. Well over 90%. So yes, perhaps I do understand their need to protect women even if a rare few tend to demonstrate sociopathic behaviours. After being faced with so much violence toward them, your instinct would be to display compassion. So I stand corrected. Listen to Laura Richards’ other podcast Crime Analyst. Best criminal insight I’ve heard explained to non professionals. Her interview with the son of Wilma McCaan is heartbreaking yet leaves you filled with hope. She’s really pioneering the way we look at true crime by giving the victims and their families a voice and a purpose. It’s really inspiring.
