Greed Took Over....

I used to really enjoy these podcasts. But over time, the analysis became more and more superficial, the tone became more cutesy, and the commercials and sales of "merch" became dominant. They start with promotions, interrupt the story frequently to keep you listening through more commercials, and then finish with even more commercials, in case you missed them! It didn't help when I began reading MANY reviews and articles accusing the hosts of "stealing" their research without attribution. I stopped listening about 6 months ago and have never missed them . . .or their merch.

Just terrible

I couldn’t finish the first story. The hosts have a giddy and unprofessional (e.g., lots of “likes) tone that seems inappropriate and irreverent to the topic. The advertising of their “merch” before telling the first story just seemed so distasteful. They also conversationally interject irrelevant side notes during the telling of the story. It seems they just like to hear themselves talk. This style definitely was not for me.

Plagiarism - Cannot Fake Care or Surprise

I cannot believe that audible has rewarded this fake, scripted show that was proven to have blatantly committed plagiarism, did not site their sources, and then when called out, STILL did not go back and give credit where credit was due. Audible, you should be ashamed to let this be available on your site while they are making tons of money on the hard, long work of others. Do not follow these women who are fake and cannot even act their way out of a wet paper bag as the tell the scripted story each episode. If you need me to site my sources, I will be happy to do so. I, unlike this show, have morals.

One of my favorites!

I love this podcast, I've listened to it on multiple platforms (mainly Spotify and Google Podcasts) and try to leave a good review on all of them. They go into a lot of detail and try to give multiple angles to each case. Great for my commute into work!

Love it!

Crime Junkie is one of my favorite True Crime podcasts!
Ashley and Brit know very well how to setup the environment for the podcast, and they talk about lots of cases that don't get a lot of attention in other podcasts.

Great listen

I found Crime Junkies a year ago and binged all the episodes in two weeks. Ash and Brit are amazing storytellers who try to find and give unbiased information about each case. I can listen to most episodes on my lunch break, which is a huge plus since there's not I don't have a lot of free time. I hope they continue to make more episodes for many years to come.

Not good

Listen along as two Midwest Karens plagiarize stories from legitimate authors, Wikipedia articles, and new stories and exploit crime victims for profit along the way.

Really Fake

I love the content and I love that they cover so many different crime topics. That being said, it's hard to finish and episode. I find my self rolling my eyes constantly. These girls are just fake. They do these cute little voices and act as if they are completely thrown back by everything. Its so scripted it makes me cringe and their "crying" they do is the worst crying I've ever heard. It would be so much better if they just approached the situation with a less cutesy, extremely annoying attitude. They should spend less time acting out a script and more time being respectful of the situation being told.
