I thought I might get bored, but it’s been the opposite. Love the insights from Dr Phil and all the details of the crimes. Ready for season 5! Hurry up Dr Phil!
Lose the annoying music!!
I love to listen to mysteries, the content of the episodes are interesting, but that “music” is too loud, and is off putting and really annoying!

You did an amazing job setting the stage for the murder Dr. Phil. Maybe you should consider Directing 😁Movies. Maybe one called “Draw Your Own Conclusion “ where you set the stage of the crimes, Change the names of the participants in the actual cold case, Show the movie 🎥 with the interviews & evidence/ information, then allow people to submit to a designated site their view of the outcome. Maybe it could give law enforcement potential clues to some of the cold cases. Who knows. Maybe show a Missing poster afterwards.
Sometimes people hear/see things that they just can’t put together. Hearing clues, details, blonde hair, brown eyes, 5’tall, etc. Seeing a movie with actors portraying some of the known details, etc could help people put things together and possibly remember odd occurrences that happened a few doors down the street a couple of nights ago. Call police who could possibly confirm or deny possible critical information to a cold case.
If people could find Jaycee Dugard, then who knows who else could possibly return home to their families.
I would love to help out in any way that I can.
I love this podcast
Dr. Phil is a great storyteller. I patiently wait every week for the next episode to come out!
The background music was too loud and was very distracting.
I’ve enjoyed it. Plus it’s lead me to
Other crime podcasts. I just recently got into podcasts
Even though this podcast is based on fact it lacks a bit. It’s painfully obvious Dr. Phil is reading from a script, which makes this move slowly. The sound effects are well done and add to the suspense.
This was the worst podcast I’ve ever listen to. It was dragged out by Dr.Phil’s opinions. The story could have been told in 1 episode length. It does not give any new information and has an awful ending where he goes off on a unrelated tangent. The story itself is heartbreaking but Dr.Phil did a terrible job telling it. The ads for his wife’s business was are annoying. The music is horrible. Don’t waste your time.
Dr. Phil is a great storytelling!
I love it.
It’s a great story with a great cause. Only issue is had was at one point the background music got loud and scared the life outta me 😂 you can laugh at me dr.phil, it’s okay! I almost jumped out of my bed . But thanks you for sharing this story and I pray for these parents to get answers.
What about covering the Darlie Routhier case???
GOOD LORD the music is ridiculous. I can't hear you over your sound effects, Dr. Phil.
re: Foul Language—Who is the real Dr Phil?
On the daytime show, guests who toss out the “F-bomb” and continually cuss are chastised by Dr Phil and told they need to widen their vocabulary. He doesn’t allow it. I applaud him for that and highly respect his enforcement of it. So I don’t understand why he lets loose with such a potty mouth on his podcast? What a double-standard. Which is the real Dr Phil?
I enjoy this podcast. Dr Phil tells the story very clear and concise. The stories are interesting. My only issue is that I feel the stories could be told quicker - they could be done in 2-3 eps instead of 5. Some of the eps are just the same info repeated.
Into Thin Air
I really enjoyed the first two series, but this one has been dragged out a little too long.
So much repeating by Dr Phil. Not just repeating but going on and on about subjects already talked about. I listen to a lot of podcasts none repeat themselves more than Dr Phil it’s amazing. How much time is wasted on talking about what we as listeners already know from recent podcasts from the same story.
move the story along!
Enjoy listening when you actually move the story forward. Way too much repetition and stating of the obvious. Could do with less promoting of wifey Robin’s goods. Otherwise good voice and interesting stories.
Stretched out in too many episodes
I felt like it was the same information over and over. Really could have been 2-3 recordings with the info provided. At the end of the fourth episode, there was a proclamation that there would be something shocking that we wouldn’t want to miss in the final episode. Spoiler: nothing.
I was a little disappointed with this podcast. The content shared is fine buuuutttt Dr. Phil is soooooo repetitive. he literally says the same thing over and over in a new way. Each episode is the same as the last episode but with one new fact added. These episodes could definitely be condensed.
That music though..
Ok, Dr. Phil, good interviewing good questions, diction, forward moving on topic. The editor and or producer need to really do a better job mixing audio. As a producer you have to know you’re burying the vocals with the music bed!! Lower that music, and use sparingly. I would have given more stars without the poor mixing.
Dr. Phil telling the story is enough. His voice is clear and he speaks with expression. Adding strange Halloween-like sounds (music?) is distracting and unnecessary. Please edit out the background noise ASAP! Those noises get NO stars!
PLEASE stop the music!!
Though I agree that Dr. Phil repeats things too much that doesn’t really bother me BUT the background music is horrible! I really enjoy listening to these but may have to stop because the music is so distracting. It is too loud, an annoying tone and totally unnecessary! The stories are dramatic enough they don’t need the addition of suspense music... that’s for tv dramas not a podcast. Please turn the music off!!
Inaccurate portland geography
Germantown Rd is a 5 minute (at most) drive from skyline Blvd. about 10 minutes from the Hormon home. Most definitely NOT the other side of Portland. Same exact neighborhood in fact. And by chance, my own neighborhood of 25 years. Just FYI.
A little correction
It’s is possible to start falling backwards and wind up landing face down. I fell trying to get into an upper deck bed. I fell backward and twisted midair to land on my hands and knees. I broke my left tibia just below my knee. I guess I was trying to protect my head
I enjoy Dr. Phil however I could live without hearing his wife’s ads.

I need more! This is intriguing and enjoyable. More please 🤓
Big fan of Dr. Phil-but
Way too dramatic, way too repetitive. I realize that many of his fans may love it, but I want to hear about the facts and the cases, not a soap opera.
Content is interesting and Dr Phil has a soothing voice but the music is loud, creepy and completely distracts from the narrative. Please stop with the music while Dr Phil is speaking. His voice and the content he’s speaking of does not need external theatrics.
I love true crime
I really like the case of Kyron Horman.
I just love Dr.Phil
Don’t listen to the haters.. I love the music and the dramatics and the repeating! Everything is great, keep it up.
You talk too much Dr. Phil
The cases seem interesting but Dr. Phil just drones on and on saying the same thing three or four different ways before he moves on in the story. Also, I’m finding him quite judgmental in an unexpected way. At one point he castigates a suspect because she is sexting with someone in an extramarital affair. He says things like, what kind of mother would do something like this? Reminds me of blaming the rape victim because she’s wearing a sexy dress. This is not the sort of psychological analysis I was expecting, it’s more like moral judgment.

Such a good thing to watch when in the car helps me simulate my brain.
Great Podcast but I could definitely do without the loud annoying musical affects.
Great Podcast, but I could definitely do without the loud annoying musical affects. Love Dr. Phil but please stop with the loud unnecessary and distracting music. 😊
Tell the story and stop being so dramatic! The story is dramatic enough by itself! Stop repeating yourself over and over again! Too much repeating gets repetitive and Robins Skin Care line is advertised way too much! Does anyone really buy her stuff or is that why you have to advertise it every 5 minutes? It’s extremely boring!
These podcasts are awesome!!!
One word: repetitive
I love love Dr Phil- Hopefully the episodes will get shorter- to the point. Actually found myself wondering if I had replayed the same episode over & over again.
Katherine in Oregon
I was living in Garibaldi (around the time of Kyron Horman’s disappearance), in 2010.
My friend (Wendal and I), had lunch at the Chinese Restaurant by the slough along Highway 101, in Tillamook, Oregon. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant at this time.
As we were being seated I saw a child that I thought looked exactly like Kyron Horman, from the pictures I had seen via the papers and T.V. I told my friend (kind of loud), that there is Kyron Horman. A woman sitting across the aisle (and next to Kyron), loudly and indignantly said “He is NOT Kyron.” The boy sat down and did not look our way, or say a word.
There were about 6 people with Kyron,all adults.
I’m certain it was Kyron. The same haircut and eye glasses.
Did I miss this?
I’m catching up. I just listened to the “Rebecca” story. My question is why has no one addressed her feet being bound? Did she hop the the balcony and then get over the edge with her feet being tied together?
Thank you for this incredible podcast!
So intuitive, judgement free, open minded and informative.
I love true crime stories, and I love Dr. Phil, so for me this is a double doozie! This is my first time actually sitting down and listening to a podcast; I’ve been urged by my best friend for years and I’ve never given it a chance. I just sat through 7 podcasts in a row! It’s safe to say I’m hooked. I love doing my chores and errands listening to music, but you can bet I’ll be adding these podcast to my playlists from now on. I can learn about an entire story without having to watch a tv program! I love this, keep it up Dr. Phil! I love how you keep it open to interpretation and opinion. That’s the gift of a good story teller; letting the listener decide and choose how they feel about the main players rather than be told. Thank you!!!
Can’t stop listening
I enjoy listening to these stories! I can’t stop listening and the suspense of these stories is enjoyable and informative. Especially hearing it from Dr. Phil’s voice.
High profile cases that have been done and redone. I suppose if you’ve lived under a rock the past couple of decades you may find these cases interesting.....
Yes, Dr Phil is a psychologist ... but he is no criminal profiler. Also for someone who gave great weight, on his show, to the country’s top leading polygraph examiner, Jack Trimarco, Dr Phil is sure quick to poo-poo a polygraph examination when it comes to Terri Horman.
Very insightful on the reasons behind murder
I so appreciate the thoughtfulness and experience Dr. Phil brings to a crowded field of true crime podcasts, he stands out from the crowd. I wish he would give recent mass shootings against Hispanics careful consideration and discuss whether or not the public expressions of racial hatred/white supremacy common today contributed to an atmosphere encouraging this violence. Only 14% of murders occur between strangers, but 222 mass shootings fall into that category so far this year. Please, Dr. Phil, why are angry white men going around shooting people (ElPaso/Dayton)? You are the only public figure I trust to parse this issue objectively to offer deeper understanding of what is going on. What responsibility do politicians have for what they say off the cuff to demean or demonize one group to another?
In thin air
Absolutely loved it can’t wait for next episode
Absolutely love Dr. Phil’s Podcast they are very well presented and very informative. I really like how he interviews the people involved in the cases.
Love listening to Dr Phil! He tells these stories in a way that is so captivating it just pulls you in!
What You Would Expect from Dr. Phil
Clare Bear Stare
I’ll give Phil this — he has a pleasant voice, and his narration is better than most. The problem comes in the content. None of the crimes he covers are new to either long-time fans of the show or first time listeners; they’ve been the covered pretty extensively in both the media and on Dr. Phil’s show itself. There is very little new information or speculation being presented. The podcast itself seems more like a coherent editing of previous shows he’s done on said topics, with a lot of prosaic descriptions added to it. They’re also incredibly redundant: Dr. Phil repeats certain information again and again, and asks rhetorical questions aloud that add nothing to the discussion. There is little in the way of new ideas or personal revelations, either of which would vastly improve his rambling descriptions of the crimes. The podcast is also stuffed with advertisements for his wife’s infinite lines of snake oil “products” which are also pimped to death on the show. Unless you’re new to true crime or a diehard fan of Dr. Phil, there’s not much here to glean or enjoy.
Love my Dr. Phil
Very relaxing to listen to!! Just another way to have a little bit of Dr. Phil in my life!!
Repetitive - season 1
The content is great, but it could’ve literally be wrapped up into one or two episodes. Dr. Phil repeats himself NUMEROUS times. Enough to where you question if you’re on the right episode or replaying the last. Disappointed.
I truly enjoy listening to these cases. I love how he is very unbiased with each case and looks at both side and even in the middle. Plus for some reason I find his voice very soothing.
He keeps getting worse! So so so bad
Dr Phil’s narration is so bad, it’s embarrassing. He reminds me of a elementary school principal reading a Goosebumps book to a second grade class on Halloween. The text he reads is full of childish adjectives and he really over acts. If you’ve ever seen the Dr Phil episode of Frasier then you’ve seen Phil’s bad acting skills before. The story however is very interesting . Just a side note. Dr Phil reminds me of an old time snake oil salesman with his ads. The type you see in old movies and TV shows. Every time he starts his Robin’s magic skin lotion spiel, I picture A Twilight Zone episode about a Texas Con Artist who claimed he could wake the dead. He is so ridiculously bad that it’s funny. I wonder who actually buys that stuff? Tried listening to the next few mysteries. They just keep getting worse.! The one about the guy falling out of the window. I couldn’t make it through the first 20 minutes. It’s sad how bad he is at this type of things.
