I recently started listening to Sword and Scale! I love it. I would just like to know if there is an update on this case?

One of the greatest True Crime Podcasts, if not the best!
Sep 10 2020
This podcast started my obsession with true crime podcasts. Frankly, the tone changed somewhere along the way and I'd say I prefer the earlier episodes to the most recent ones but still it is a great show. Rock on and keep doing you, Mike!

pros: high production value, interesting format, well researched
cons: run and hosted by an absolute trash human
0/10, would not recommend

One the best true crime podcasts
Jul 16 2020
Kind of a gore fest. I've got a tough stomach, but one of the episodes was so bad I put the podcast down for over a year. I don't remember what episode. It might have been Jonestown, since that was one of the last ones I seem to have listened to. While I wasn't as in tune to it at the time, even the episode descriptions seem to show some sort of bias against mental illnesses. Also the host has said some pretty bad things in the past, google it. I'll be unsubscribing.

Must listen! I listen to many true crime podcasts & this is one of my favourites.
It is at times challenging because of the difficult subjects & Mike doesnt attempt to lighten or soften issues instead as the opener states demonstrating the worst monsters are real.
I dont understand the negativity claiming Mike is sexist & doesnt understand sexual assault issues. If you listen to the epsides you would know that's wrong. Seems like trolling to me.
Keep up the good work!

Everyone should listen to this podcast

This show has no redeeming qualities and the host is cancer. Avoid like the plague.

This podcast has helped me process some of my childhood traumas digging deep into the minds of depraved people it has helped me understand why people do things to hurt others. I really want to thank Mike for doing everything he can to keep the podcast going. For now I can only afford $5 patreon I wish I could give $100.

I have to say over the past year or so it has become increasingly harder to listen to this show. It seems as if he's gotten super judgemental and doesn't believe that mental disorders can and will escalate a person to murder if they go unchecked.
I do decide. The Sipreano family is remarkable in that they know that their brother would never had done this had he continued to get the medical attention he needed.
This will be the last episode I listen to. I just cannot with the cruel judgement.

By far my favourite true crime podcast. Love Mike's sense of humour and the fact that he spares no details.

Just a bunch of audio clips, basically...

Like many reviewers before me have said, I had also hung in their with Mike, S&S being one of the first true crime poddies that got me hooked on the audio true crime genre. It was good enuff for me to let the odd bizarre, sexist or even slighted bigoted view, pass. My guilty pleasure! But WTF happened? Starting since that 'hiccup' 6-8mths back, the recent episode was HORRIFIC! Who was that guy? We don't want to know his opinions or tbh, urs either Mike! Way OTT! I'm outa here, sort it out Mike!

I used to be a fan, but things got way out of hand. The host has a lot of issues and keeps alienating himself to fans and advertisers because of his inflammatory opinions. He also berates anyone who calls him out. Don't waste your time or money.

Meh. Used to be good. Used to get the plus. Now things have changed.

This one's a massive turd.
The host is a hybristophilic fanboy who gets off on broadcasting gore and voyeurism to his crowd. Avoid like he's infected with COVID-19!
Bonus: if you say anything about it that isn't 100% fanfare on Twitter, Reddit, or Facebook, he'll attack you personally.

Hands down, best true crime podcast out there (I know, I've listened to way too many). Mike does an excellent job telling stories that are well researched. Great quality, 911 calls, interviews, interrogations, and plenty of wtf moments! 5 stars all the way!
