THE BEST

I have deleted/culled all of my other TC podcasts! They pale in comparison. At first I was picking random episodes to try but I decided to start at the beginning and work my way through the back catalogue because it’s so good and now I have had a good listen I can actually write a review. I have been on a binge for days. It’s educational, honest (even his episode on race that I’ve listened to so far,is much more honest than usual, which is like a breath of fresh air) it’s uncensored(as much as it can be) and downright FASCINATING! I am learning loads from this and did so from the very first episode. Not for those who are easily offended (I’m not one of those people!!) Totally different league to all other podcasts based on TC and exactly what I have been searching for. All I can say is WOW and BRAVO. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

One of the best:- Jan 21 now a Patreon 😆👍🏾🥳

This podcast is amazing can’t wait for each episode to drop. So educational, informative and entertaining. The host is brilliant- would recommend to any true crime fans that want to learn about the psychological drivers of perpetrators. 🌟🌟🌟

Can’t get enough!

I’ve always intuitively understood the values of nature and nurture- and quietly analysed individual and group behaviours/patterns of behaviour and considered influencing factors such as lived experience or genetic dispositions that contribute to any individual person but also personality disorders, psychopathy and the like.

but never really had the full language or validation of what I felt made sense.

Until the first episode of this podcast- when I am listening I am fully engaged and immersed.

Lee who is a forensic criminologist (I believe) very competently explains the clear distinctions and the nuanced differences in
behaviours, paraphillias and psychological disorders.

this is a unique format in its education, exploring the collective ingredients of the criminal and also of the crime itself.

Keep on keeping on,
You rock me hearty!
