Incredibly entertaining, candid, and well produced

I have been a major fan of true crime for a majority of my life, and I’ve watched or listened to dozens of shows and podcasts over the years. This is by far one of my favorite. I binged most of the videos the week I discovered them on YouTube. Even though I hardly ever rewatch, reread, or re-listen to content, I often find myself replaying The Casual Criminalist. Everyone working on the podcast are amazing and I greatly appreciate the work they put into producing such a high-quality series.

Simon is incredible

I love listening to Simon deliver these stories. His input is fantastic and the stories are great (I mean they’re terrible, but...you know). I also love that him and Callum refrain from referring to the killers as true geniuses - way to call them out for what they really are. I can’t wait for the “don’t write down your murders” merch.

So Much Fun

If only Simon would turn Business Blaze into a podcast as well.
