Summary

[Contains Mature Themes] West Cork, Ireland is an outpost at the edge of Europe. Rugged, windswept, and coastal, it was a region of farmers and fisherman until the 1960s, when it was discovered by the “blow-ins” - artists, urban runaways, and people who drove until the road ran out. It was a haven for those wanting to turn their backs on their old lives and start over. But then there was a murder in West Cork, and everything changed overnight.

West Cork Podcast.

Well structured and with a balanced view.
The joint narration worked well with both voices easy and comfortable to listen to.
I would recommend this podcast to anyone with an interest in true crimes.
Top rating in each category because it ticked all the boxes.

Great!

Compelling story, up there as one of the best podcast series out there. Producers need to do another series on another murder.

Dreadful

As an Irishman, I wanted to hear this account of a major Irish scandal, and I expected to enjoy it. Sadly I found it unlistenable and gave up after 3 minutes. Decent spoken word content does not need jarring and distracting background music.

All Episodes - astounding presented in calmness

I have never listened to this kind of format, and I loved this,I liked being led into what we think are facts..only to findout out that some are fiction, then some facts again...what a journey for all the people involved, and the fact that the story is still playing out today is just..incredible. completely captivating, you couldn't make it up.....or could they?..or did they? ...or did he?...or did she? And I am talking here, about the Police, the witnesses, neighbours, lawyers,families, suspects and journalists ...we are but human. Brilliantly put together.
