    A Gangster, A Celebrity & A Police Officer: Episode 379

    A Gangster, A Celebrity & A Police Officer: Episode 379

    Todays story is from Liverpool where a shooting outside a nightclub left a number of questions unanswered. Serious players in the underworld were loosely connected and did all they could to make the charges related to the shooting go away. Add to this mix an attempt to bribe a Police Officer and a 90's reality star and that is this weeks story on the UK True Crime Podcast.

    An Impending Retirement: Episode 378

    An Impending Retirement: Episode 378

    It was just one of the thousands of missing persons cases that were reported in the UK that year when 63 year old Don Banfield disappeared from his home in north-west London. He had been having issues in his marriage and had talked about moving back to Trinidad - where he was born and the place he loved. But he had spoken to a number of people about being concerned for his safety: had Don come to harm?

    Just what happened to Don Banfield?

    A Pathetic Man: Episode 377

    The episode this week comes from the north-east of England.

    Like almost all of us, Nicola Morrin just wanted to enjoy life and when she met her partner he seemed a lovely man. But he wasn't.

    He was a weak, violent bully and Nicola was desperate to get away from him as she feared just what he was capable of doing to her.

Very enjoyable

An enjoyable podcast . The episodes seem to be well researched . I have rattled them off after finding the podcast a few months ago . Adam has a nice voice and I like the conversational style of presentation , along with the length of the episodes . There are editing errors , especially in the earlier episodes but I feel this adds to the experience in a strange kind of way .

The only thing stopping me giving it 5 stars are the references to ‘ the mighty Leeds united ‘ , in what seems to be most episodes . I know people have interests that I don’t , but this does get a bit annoying for me at times .
