Love it!

Been bingeing on this podcast the last week while doing chores & enjoyed every minute. I like the analysis at the end too. Very proper & pleasant Canadian voice with some very old cases I wasn’t familiar with, even though I was a big Unsolved Mysteries/Robert Stack fan. Keep up the great work!

Difficult to listen to

The content is really good. And the research is obviously very thorough. But for the love of god, every time a word starts with a “P” it rattles my house. I’ve got the bass turned all the way down, but it’s like he blows directly into the microphone and it is violently annoying. Also, what kind of name is McGill Foot? I mean, having a last name of Foot is bad enough, but then you’re gonna name your kid McGill?! The audacity..

Good cases, surface level analysis

I appreciate the variety of cases, as many aren't covered by other podcasts. That's about the only part I enjoy. I have been listening for about a year and I feel like Robin lacks the ability to empathize with victims or suspects. It's very off putting and, frankly, makes me uncomfortable. The analysis is very two dimensional because of the lack of empathy and often feels more like a recap of Unresolved Mysteries, instead of a true crime podcast. We get it, there's a creep dramatization. That's not an actual video of the event. It's also overwhelmingly formulaic, which detracts from the over all quality of the podcast.
