It's such a simple concept and without all the bells and whistles of a lot of other podcasts, but the stories are impeccably researched and told in such an intriguing way. It's too bad I have to wait an entire week for an episode!
Super addicting and I can't get enough. I look forward to the new episode each week.
I have listened to this podcast since it began and I've always been impressed by the story telling and production. Thank you for killing it every week, and please keep up the fantastic work Case Files crew!
All facts and no filler. Very professional. I was listening to episode 59 and sewing at the same time , and had to stop what I was doing. I had to give this podcast my full attention. I'am fairly new at podcasts, so I will have to go back and listen to all the episodes I missed.
This podcast has really grown on me from its first episode and become one of my favorites. The stories are well researched and presented and I enjoy that each is a straightforward story rather than conjecture about what happened. I also like that it covers cases from Australia and the UK that I am not always familiar with. The host has a great voice for podcasting.
Content seems ok but the quality of the audio and the monotonous drone of the narrator puts me to sleep every time I try to give this a go.
Love this podcast. Great topics, music and narration. If you like your true crime straight-forward and a bit spooky this is your podcast. The listener is left to their own devices to figure out what may have happened...great overall podcast-check it out!
I just started listening to this podcast and so far, so good. I'm only in the early episodes, so I'm assuming that the sound quality improves with time. Also, this is purely superficial, but I think it would make a big difference if the host put a little more expression in his voice. You can tell he's reading off of a piece of paper. But that's not a huge deal because the content is great! Thank you!
Best crime podcast
absoletuly love the podcast keep up the amazing work! the EAR episodes gave me nightmares for weeks!! -Mercedes from Sacramento
Casefile is my favorite podcast, period. I have spent hour after hour of my workdays absolutely captivated by the storytelling prowess of the Casefile team. Expertly written, researched, produced and orated. I cannot praise this team and show enough.
Great podcast , love the detailed episodes !
Love this podcast. It's one of the few long running podcasts that I've listened to every episode. Great research, great stories, and extremely reverent in its handling.
True to the title, this is my all time favorite true crime podcast. The saddest day was the one where I had listened to every episode, and I now had to wait for a fresh story. The struggle is real.
This is by far the best true crime podcast! I think it's awesome that the host is unbiased and just lays out the facts and not his opinions.
And I hope the host keeps at it. One mild criticism is that when his voice drops off at the end of sentences it is very hard to understand/hear him.
I absolutely love this podcast. Your accuracy and attention to detail is appreciated. I love our host as well. Thanks for being here!
Have listened to this true crime podcast for some time and the episodes are always well done.
Well researched and presented
Casefile is so incredibly well done. The research and production quality are top notch. If you like a "just the facts" style of presentation this is the best podcast for you. I like that the host stays anonymous because it allows for more focus on the subject matter he's covering. Not to say that I want every podcast to be done that way but for this show it works. Really can't say enough good things.
Well told, great narration, respectful of victims and survivors, and produced beautifully. Couldn't recommend it more.
As a fan of a few true crime podcasts, I was excited when I heard about Casefile - I thought I had found another great show to latch onto! 20 minutes into my sixth or seventh episode, I'm done. This podcast is terribly boring. Low production value. the narrator sounds BORED and disinterested. You can clearly tell he is reading - I mention this because his voice really shows it - kind of like when your English teacher would ask someone to read in class, and they are stumbling through reading it aloud in a hesitant, monotonous voice. It's hard to listen to for so long. The content is fairly detailed; the cases I've listened to were interesting cases by themselves, but every episode is basically just a straightforward narrated summary of events as they happened. Almost ZERO creativity is put into the episodes. No interviews with anyone. Just a guy, reading you a true crime story while he tries to make it as boring as possible. Paying attention becomes a difficult chore instead of a pleasurable experience.I really hate that I feel this way about it. I wanted to like it, I need more true crime shows in my life! But Casefile is just not there yet. If you're getting into true crime and prefer no flash or fluff to your true crime podcast, Casefile may be great for you. If you want to be entertained while you hear about true crime, you should avoid this podcast and check out Sword & Scale(No I am not affiliated with S&S in any way, just a listener).
This very quickly became my very favorite true crime podcast. It's very cleanly and fairly presented, with no bias on the part of the narrator and no unnecessary hypothesizing like other podcasts. Super well researched and presented, this is a great true crime podcast.
I love this podcast! His voice and accent are amazing, the cases are well-researched, and it's fascinating to listen to.
Very dark but riveting. Definitely worth a listen.
I am new to podcasts. Only been listening for 3 months and I recently discovered this one. True crime well researched and solid story telling. I went back and listened to every episode I just can't get enough. Being in the USA, I initially was taken back by his Australian accent. Now when I new episode launches am am thrilled to hear the accent and the newest information about a case I may or may not have heard before. Check this on out it is well worth it!
One of the best true crime podcasts. Possibly THE best. The cases are professionally presented. The host has a nice voice. Very clear and articulate. He doesn't veer off and start talking about nonsense like some others I've heard. Every episode I've listened to has been meticulously researched, and the material presented in clear, chronological order, and I look forward to each new ep.
Only wish there were more!
I walk every day for hours for my job and listen to lots of different types of podcasts. Casefile is in my top 2 or 3 favorites out of all of them. This podcast is polished, professional, detailed and engrossing. The stories covered are interesting/entertaining and the narratives are very well written. Probably the best narratives I've heard from any podcast. The theme music and the host's voice are among the best to listen to. This is one of two podcasts I listen to that I prioritize when new episodes drop; the rest just have to wait in the queue. Keep up the fantastic work; I will be listening!
I listen to many true crime podcasts, but this is probably my favorite. Every episode is obviously so well-researched, polished, and presented in a way that keeps me hooked from the get-go. I really admire the amount of work he puts into each episode. He doesn't just cover the same stories we've all heard many times before (and even if you're familiar with the story you'll undoubtedly learn something new), but he finds cases that span all sorts of geographical areas and types of crimes. Love, love, love it. His smooth Australian accent is just the cherry on top of this fantastic podcast sundae.
Very interesting, well presented podcast. Keep up the excellent work.
This podcast is professional, captivating, and well researched. I like that the narrator doesn't add too many anecdotal comments and that he keeps to the facts. I also like that he focuses on international cases and not just well known American cases. Thanks for an amazing podcast!!
His monotone voice sounds like it's just reading out of a book. No interviews, no music... tried to listen several times and fell asleep 3 times. Check out Stranglers, Crimetown, or Someone Knows Something instead!!
On the top of my true crime podcast list. The quality is superb and the storytelling is well researched and keeps the listener hooked. Just wonderful!!
The host does a full in depth look at the crime, focusing not only on the perp but on the victim (s) and past the crime into trial and post trial life. His accent is also soothing when you "clutch your pearls"
Love the stories and the narrator and I am delighted every time a new episode is added.
You can't release new episodes fast enough for me!
Some say the narrator's voice is too monotone, this isn't theater so a straightforward "monotone" storytelling voice for a crime podcast is much appreciated. I can't stand when some podcast narrators try to reenact or change their tones too much, unless executed flawless, it comes off as a school play...and it's annoying. I don't want the narrator of a crime story to sound excited, sad, or judgemental, just tell the story. Keep up the good work, don't change the tone.
I really appreciate the thoughtful and thorough research of this podcast. The tone toward the victims/survivors is very respectful.
Great podcast all around. Unique content and well written and read
And I listen to a gazillion podcasts. Love how the stories are told, and the accent is just a bonus. Seriously awesome podcast.
I love true crime and have tried tons of true crime podcasts. I started listending to this one awhile ago and have given it a fair shot despite not being crazy about the narrator from the get go. I have grown to HATE this podcast. It is SO boring. The narrator is reading from a script, very badly, and seems as if he has no interest in the cases. He also brings absolutely nothing additional to the stories and his transitions/ way of presenting the cases sometimes doesn't even make sense. The only podcast worse than this is sword and scale. I cannot figure out how it has such high ratings. These people must love falling asleep to podcasts.
One of my favs!
Great true crime stories in full detail, love it!!!
Casefile is by far the best true crime podcast I have listened to. It is evident tons of research goes into each episode. EAR/ONS was an incredible series. Thank you for your hard work Casefile! It does not go unnoticed
I have been listening to this podcast since the very beginning and I can't say enough great things about it. Every episode is meticulously researched and clearly presented. I believe that this podcast presents one of the best forums for support for victims and survivors, and provides a platform for calling out to our friends and family
Hypnotic and engaging. Well research, written, and delivered.
I absolutely love this podcast! I only recently discovered it and have listened to almost every episode in a couple of months! The stories are fascinating, terrifying, and moving. And I had previously only heard of a few. Every episode is incredibly thorough, and I'll often go online afterwards to learn more and find that the podcast covered everything. I love the hosts' voice, he is calm and kind while talking about gruesome stuff. And there's lots of other audio from victims, criminals and law-enforcement which is just fascinating. I can't get enough!!
True crime and an Australian accent.
I'm so impressed with the research done for this podcast. In addition to what you'd expect to hear, like the well-known facts of any given crime, this host and his crew also deliver surrounding details that flesh out the story and make it much more real. I love that this host prefers to remain anonymous. It's just one more way the focus stays beamed on the story itself. I have learned a lot about Australia just listening to the podcast - and I appreciate that they choose interesting stories from all eras and countries. This one is at the top of my must-listen list now.
