    Under Pressure: Episode 270

    Under Pressure: Episode 270

    We all know people who have had affairs. They happen for all sorts of reasons and if both people want the same out of what they are doing then it is no business of ours.

    But in our story today from Hampshire, one wanted 'fun' whilst the other wanted the great romance. It was never going to end well, but it was impossible to see that it could ever end this badly.....

    The Carer: Episode 269

    The Carer: Episode 269

    Caring is a very special profession where the carer is given unique and special access to someone who needs help. It offers a unique opportunity to build a very special bond. In this episode of the Uk True Crime podcast I look at how this special bond was abused in absolutely the most terrible way.

Anjana Temple ,

Just listened to the Plymouth nightmare

This podcast brought back the memories of this horrific case. In general disturbing as this case is the podcasts are to the point with bits of humour and always engaging and classy 😄. Thank you, more please

julie whitsend wilson ,

M.O.T

This podcast is absolutely fantastic like the mighty Leeds United (ALAW).
Adam has a wonderful voice and narrates really well . He is consistent with the weekly updates and never fails to deliver a very interesting episode .
Keep it up Adam you’re doing a fantastic job .
Julie whitsend Wilson from Wakefield
A real LUFC fan too .

dcptb ,

Keep it up

I really enjoy this podcast. The episodes are relatively short and to the point.
I like that Adam highlights issues such as domestic violence and doesn’t just glaze over it. We are reminded about the victims and the lasting impact crimes have on their loved ones.
I love the one liners and humour!
