I’m a long time listener of Dark Topic and have always loved Jack’s approach to True Crime podcasting. His method is very unique and it clearly separates him from all of the other greats out there (Generation Why, Sword & Scale, True Crime Garage are some of my favorites). Jack takes a narrative approach and takes the facts of the case a puts them in “story form” giving it almost a “movie based on a true story” vibe. One of a kind! However, I’ve never left a review simply because it’s not my style (I’m lazy, full disclosure). I’ve been inspired to leave a review by the latest episodes subtitled “Night Guide” where Jack is trying something new and I felt obligated to give my feedback. It’s phenomenal! What he has done is brought on a secondary host, Sam, and added dialogue in between the narrative pieces aforementioned. So you still get the unique Jack Luna “story time” style breakdown of the case, but in between those parts, Jack discusses the finer details with Sam which gives it more of a Gen Why feel. BUT (and it’s a HUGE but) Sam and Jack do NOT pull the punches and aren’t afraid to offend. So I’ve been calling it the R-rated Gen Why, which, in my opinion, is a major compliment. Highly recommended!!!

Never boring

This show's success is largely due to the host and his edgy narration style. His realistic, often cynical point of view is refreshing to me personally. Even the filler material is entertaining and I actually LISTEN TO THE ADS when he reads them. Normally I automatically fast forward, but on this podcast they are seamlessly inserted with no change in volume or cadence. The hilarious digs directed at the most dispicable of criminals make me burst out laughing in the middle of the office =D P.S. Not sure about that reeeaally long ad break recorded by a different dude in a recent episode haha... =)

Keep it up

I love both the traditional Dark Topic and Night Guide episodes. You and Sam are inappropriately hilarious, which is nice when ur dealing with such heavy, dark and disturbing topics. Can’t wait for more.
