As the Crime Turns Review

I have to admit that I'm addicted to these episodes. Once I found out that mini-sodas were available - I was so excited. I've missed listening to these podcasts! Happy to see that your back!

Desmond has a way of telling an excellent story through narration. He has an engaging voice. He knows when to add music in the background to add tension to a scene. The music sometimes is subtle, but added at the perfect moment. The other audio clips he adds to enhance the story lines are beneficial in order to build the story in the viewers head.

I haven't heard of these stories before and these podcasts have informed me of these cases. I like how some of the episodes are cliff hangers - and they let the viewer ponder about what occurred.

I'd suggest following his social so that way you can see/read/view more about the stories! I started doing that and found it helped!

I also love seeing the unique artwork for each episode too! Great job highlighting important parts of each episode!

Keep creating!

Like it. 👍🏾

Nice voice and your personal comments imbedded in is nice. But its the music that confuses me. While its playing in the background, some beats are played like its building up to a climax or event but then your just talking about early life or something. Maybe that music/sound/beat can be for more dramatic points in the story. Other than that, its cool to have stumbled upon it.

Hooked!!

I absolutely LOVE crime mysteries! Listening to this on my commute is the perfect cap to my workday! I love how each episode presents new cases that keep you locked in and waiting for more. This is a new and unique way to get my fix for crime and mystery content that I usually watch on tv! I’m sold!!
