This podcast is very well researched and also broadens one horizon and speaks to the people involved. Always very kind, I believe there are few podcasts of such integrity and professional care around. Definitely one of my favourite ones.

Pheobe has a great voice. Each episode is so interesting and makes me think about my own views on right and wrong.

Unlike many true crime shows, Criminal never feel exploitive of the victims or celebratory of the perpetrators. It's fascinating look at different crimes and crime adjacent subjects from a variety of perspectives. Very well done. And Phoebe Judge has one of the best podcast voices out there.

Interesting stories, with great guests, and directed by a masterful storyteller. Anything vaguely or very directly related to crime can be featured here.

Nobody does this like Phoebe Judge. She is a consummate journalist, has a masterful approach, and her voice is ethereal. Six stars if I could.

Omg her voice! I love her! She is the best narrator of any of my many podcast. I could listen all day. Love you Phoebe

The most important true crime podcast. Tackles crime from the angle of storytelling about real people, not sensations. Humane and grounded. Stories vary from fun and hopeful to tragic, sinister and unjust. Plus, Phoebe Judge has the best voice in podcasting.

Phoebe is an excellent storyteller

A favorite of long-standing. I love the types of stories you cover and how they often feel more fresh and intimate. It's a real good escape podcast and it's beautifully done. Hard to find a podcast I recommend more highly. It's a credit to storytelling!

Great little story... accidentally doing good...

One of my favorite podcasts. Topics are widely varied, but all roughly crime-related. Anyone fro. The true crime fandom should give this a try as something a little different than the podcasts that detail only murders and disappearances.

Been listening to Criminal a long time. It's really a great podcast

Phoebe rules! EXCELLENT!!!

Always a thought provoking podcast. Woops! You made me shed a tear for Peggy Jo Tallis (I don't cry all that easy).

Criminal has been a long respected and intellectually intriguing listen to me for years! Must mention another of their quality productions "This is Love".

Every week I try and say "I'm Phoebe Judge" just when she does....try and pick the same moment. It's the little things....Phoebe has THE best voice for a podcast and I just wish the shows ran a little longer sometimes. She covers the cases or stories that none of the others do as well. I also listen to This Is Love which is guaranteed to have me snivelling almost every episode ! I'm Lynda Kelly ...and this is my review.

Phoebe Judge has achieved the impossible: she tells stories of crime that aren't prurient or exploitative. Listening you only ever feel fascinated and intrigued. Next ghoulish or titillated.
I love the vast area her crimes can cover: from hijacking a plane to slavery to identity theft. She's a great storyteller.

Love the perspective showing the humans who were affected by this. So beautiful and honest. Sad. But such great story telling. Nice to see that the victims story gets told rather than the perpetrator

I love hearing the unusual side of true crime. Not everything criminal is murder so this podcast adds spice and flavor to the regular menu of true crime. Thank you for a different option. Keep up the great work!

My favourite take on true crime. Tells a variety of stories and treats people like people.

Amazingly well written and narrated podcast about crimes and other ephemera loosely tied to criminal activity. Lots of amazing glimpses into daily life. Best friend podcast but not really "true crime".

There's quite a lot of law & order podcasts out there now, but Phoebe does a great job cultivating very interesting episodes to make this podcast stand out from the rest. Even after 137 episodes, she still keeps the quality high. What makes it great is that it isn't just case after case review, but sometimes a look at a case or an individual and their impact on the way society practices law & order forever.
Still can't recommend her Life podcast she tries so hard to advertise though.

Hands down the best crime podcast out there. The stories are often surprising, and Phoebe has this amazing warmth and curiousity towards everything and everyone.
