CecileT ,

Amazing

Ariel is a fantastic storyteller and I absolutely love that she includes the psychology behind the story. She says “if you’re like me, you want to know why,” and she delivers.

Crimepodna ,

Thought provoking

Malice is not your ordinary true crime podcast, it dives deep into the questions of why and what causes the perpetration of crimes. As an added big bonus, Ariel’s voice and narration wraps around you and brings you into whatever it is she’s discussing.

Great! Voice is annoying

Please stop with the trembling soft voice acting. It’s so cringe.
