True crime podcasts have been having a moment — and, more often than not, behind those podcasts are doggedly determined reporters: People who hit the street, knock on doors and ask hard questions. 
Because of their work, we often know every little detail about the crimes they cover, but what we don't hear enough is what it was actually like to report on those stories, to sit in courtrooms, chase down leads, get to know family members and talk to witnesses. 
True Crime Byline — a podcast by Postmedia and Antica Productions — sets out to do this.

Almost perfect

I listen to ALOT of BAD attempts of true crime podcasts and I often can’t get through the first 10 minutes. Opinion based bias shouldn’t be allowed in “true crime”. This podcast is excellent. The host is articulate, intelligent and does a great job at offering facts. The only thing that is missing (for me), I’d like to hear audio of phone recordings, interviews etc. with the perpetrator. They are discussed but unavailable. I’d also like these episodes to be longer, which is actually a compliment. Overall, great listen, well done and it’s really nice to have a new listen that is enjoyable and intriguing since there is so much crap out there. Give it a try! You won’t regret it.
