I listen to a ton of podcasts. Many in the crime and true stories realm. Iâm a newish listener here so Iâve been working my way backwards and so far i have enjoyed every episode. This podcast is in my top 5 favorites for sure. I read that many people find the hostâs voice annoying.......I find it almost soothing ð¤·ð¼ââï¸ She speaks clearly sound quality is always good and she doesnât make any weird noises like SO MANY hosts Iâve heard. To each their own I suppose.
I highly recommend this podcast! There is something for everyone. Some episodes have the potential to keep me up at night but, afterwards, I listen to a feel-good episode and it works like watching a cartoon after a scary movie. Episodes are only about 30 minutes long and packed with substance.
I absolutely love this podcast! The episode lengths are great & the content is so interesting! Definitely recommend giving it a try if you havenât already!
So thoughtfully and professionally executed stories. This podcast is like a work of art.
Truly one of my all-time favorite podcasts. Stories are so varied and often take an unexpected turn. Canât express the excitement when thereâs a new episode in my feed... and until then, Iâll gladly re-listen!
This podcast is very educational and interesting. I love to listen to this and Canât wait to hear more from the Criminal team. Thank you!
An sober and non-judgmental view into humans and the crimes they commit. Favorite episode: Heâs Neutral. I used to pass that Buddha on walks with my dog and had no idea it had such an interesting story.
Iâm a new listener so Iâm listened backwards. I just listened to âJust Mercyâ with Brian Stevenson and it has completely changed my outlook on the world, mercy, justice and the legal system. Thank you Phoebe for being a host that listens to your guests and asks the hard questions.
This podcast will make you start every statement with âIâm Phoebe Judge.â Even though you definitely arenât Phoebe Judge and your coworkers keep asking you why you want to be called that now.
Iâve been following it for years, never regret listening to it
I walk away loving most episodes. Ride Along is my all time favorite and I wish it never ended.
Criminal is my favorite podcast. Always something different with an interesting look at past and present crimes, victims, law enforcement, etc. Episode 102 âThe Ride-Alongâ (with a police officer) could be a new podcast subject on its own. So interesting to hear what our police officers go through everyday on the job, enlightening the public.
This is an excellent series of podcasts. Lots of variety and points of view. The podcasts look at all facets of crime and criminal behavior. Subscribe and enjoy.
Love this podcast, love her voice, love her story telling!
Nails in a chalkboard when she gives accolades to Bill.
Great job phoebe
Excellent podcast. Every episode finds a new kind of surprise about human behavior and sometimes happenstance.
100+ episodes so wonderfully produced and executed!
Phoebe Judgeâs thorough interviews from such a wide variety of characters is addicting. Who knew these people existed? And her voice brings calm to our current obnoxious news rhetoric. Be prepared for the need to tune in every day to play catch-up.
Thank you for curving away from politics. Iâm assuming that the creators arenât big republican or Trump fans and thatâs whatever. I just appreciate you hiding your bias now.
Love it. Keep it coming.
Phoebe Snow does a terrific job, is highly articulate, with complex and fascinating stories. Great radio voice as well. I consider Criminal the gold standard of true crime podcasting.
Great stories, great research, great presentation. 10/10
I love this podcast! Itâs only become better since when it first came out. I read the reviews of people who gave it one or two stars and they literally complained because they didnât like the narratorâs voice or something. Give me a break. The content is incredible. The stories are unique. Iâve never been bored listening to this podcast and itâs a great way to pass some time while driving or other similar activity. As for the narratorâs voice? I personally have no problem with it.
I am 11 years old and these podcasts have opened up my eyes to the real world
Awesome story. I understand his feelings when it comes to his fur babies. Great story. Thank You!!
Almost every single episode is so interesting to me and it has been a great thing to listen to on the way to work. So glad it exists.
I love this podcast for a few reasons. The stories are super entertaining regardless of the topic. Theyâre short so it gets right to the point. And Phoebe herself- voice, personality - are so so good!
Best podcast so far. Especially because Phoebe is The Host
Well written and fascinating
I listen to ton of true crime podcasts, and this one is by far the most considered, thought-provoking, and intelligent. The host is extremely likable and asks great questions, but is also compassionate and gives a well-rounded approach to every story. Thank you for such a high-quality version of a genre that is often over-sensationalized and binary!
Love this podcast. Amazing variety of stories that âstretchâ the idea of what constitutes criminal activity. I am always bummed when an episode ends, so thatâs a good thing. I just love it and amSo happy that Phoebe Judge and crew have been around for 100 episodes (Iâve listened to them all). I hope for 100+ more. Highly recommend. Well done!
Phoebe Judge has the BEST voice! Love this podcast and truly enjoy the topics! Phoebe is one of the best story tellers!
This podcast is one of my favorites.1. Itâs the perfect length for your drive into work.2. Itâs always a great spin on what you think could fall under the term âcriminalâ - there are traditional crime stories, but also ones that test peopleâs moral compass a bit. Thereâs also ones that take a historical look at crime / criminal justice. 3. Phoebe Judge is great to listen to. Sheâs got a calm approach to reporting and has an interesting way of telling these quick stories.
One of my very favorite podcasts, every single episode is worth the listen. While not one tale is necessarily connected to previous one, each feels like an intimate story told by a friend. Less about the gore and particulars, more about the people themselves. I will be filled with a sense of pure emptiness when I have finally listened to all of them.
Iâd give the podcast a 5 if it werenât for the breathy, lispy, irritating narration. I unsubscribed and only listen if I see an episode on a top 10 list. Itâs nearly unlistenable.
I enjoy that we learn the stories from different angles and each one is facinating. I enjoy every episode. Its a must listen:)
Congratulations. Itâs not easy to be as distinguished as this podcast is. ðð¿
I love this podcast because it never fails. Phoebeâs voice is so soothing. I am a forever fan!
The woman who narrates this podcast affects a a whispery, breathless style of speech, filled with momentous pauses (even when she has nothing momentous to say). Itâs pretentious and phony, and all the false drama in her voice detracts from whatever real interest the story can offer. I love true crime stories but this narrator is so pretentious and awful I had to unsubscribe.
I love the show and look forward to each and every podcast. I just heard the short "I'm Phoebe Judge" episode. I have to say, I've always liked your voice, but then I heard all of the imitations of you. That was super cute! Now I realize, I love your voice! Keep up the great work!!!
Phoebe! You are incredible! Thank you for making us curious and calming us with your voice when things get a little hairy. I rejoice every time Criminal has a new episode and listen twice for good measure.
I love this podcast. Love Phoebe. And I had to come say, I love the 'I'm Phoebe Judge" impersonations!!! Thank you for that. I often think about and talk along with your trademark sign on/sign off. Thank you for all your great work!!
One of the few podcasts that I listen to right when it gets released. Love it.
I love your voice Phoebe!
I canât get enough of this podcast. Itâs some of the best bedtime storytelling, and Iâd listen every night if Phoebe could produce that many podcasts! Great stories based on real events and characters. History from the remote corners of #strangebuttrue
This podcast is pure perfection! A beautiful binge listen if you are here for the first time. Every episode keeps you intrigue. You will want to research more. The podcast is brilliance and a creative twist to crime stories.
Phoebe Judge is so smart and professional and her voice is so soothing. I love the variety of interviews. I feel like Iâm learning so much and Iâm only 14 episodes in (currently downloading them ALL)
Great topics, perfect podcast length, awesome story telling/interviews and so so so many episodes to listen to!!! What I love so much about this podcast is all they cool things I learn!! For only about 20-25 minutes of listening (and the endless options to choose from) I am exposed to stories I wouldnât have known about or spent the time researching. From petrified wood theft to deep diving in tar pits- serial killers to last ditch Buddha efforts... Criminal is it!
Each episode is entertaining, gripping, and down-right addictive. I love listening! Some episodes are funny, some are scary, and some have elements of both. 10/10 would recommend!
