  • The Dice Man: Episode 399
    Jul 9 2024
    Somebody was writing to Flight Attendants at Gatwick Airport.

    Horrible, threatening notes asking for pornographic pictures and threatening violence if the demands weren't met, based on the throw of a dice.

    "There are six forfeits ranging from minor to very painful... Number six is an attack with an acid bomb, although there are lots of nasty things from number three onwards."

  • A Brutally Violent Attack: Episode 398
    Jul 2 2024
    On this podcast I usually try to avoid the worst violence as I focus on the story. But there are some cases like this one from the north-east of England where Mark Shaw was so brutally attacked that the details of the violence are necessary to the story. Mark was killed by those close to him leaving his friends and family shocked and unable to quite comprehend just what had happened to Mark.

  • The Reconstruction: Episode 397
    Jun 26 2024
    It was a bright winters day in Sheffield at about 4pm as two friends were walking to return a drill bit to a tool factory. As the walked, they saw something just off the pavement in the hedges – it hadn’t been covered up and was easily spotted. It was a three foot holdall.

    The two men who found it carried it down the road, thinking it contained something valuable like an engine; it was certainly big enough. The bag was covered by a bedding sheet tied with rope and the body was wrapped in polythene. They undid the rope, unzipped the bag, peeled open the polythene and got the shock of their lives. They had found a badly decomposed body - a body that was soon confirmed to be that of a man who had been murdered a number of years before.

    Just who had dumped the body in this area where it would easily be found. And who had killed him - and why?

Brilliant

I absolutely love these podcasts. The stories are detailed and interesting, & are delivered in an entertaining manner. I also enjoy the year and month game at the beginning of the podcasts, which sets the scene time-wise. Well done Adam!

Great show!

I thoroughly enjoy listening to these episodes. The fact that they are in bitesize portions makes them appealing for shorter car journeys and walks that I do. Or even when I am doing jobs around the house and garden. The detail is very good and if it is a more complex story, it will become a 2 part podcast. I first found them on Spotify, but now follow on audible. I can’t wait for the next new episode. Thank you.

A brilliant addition to my week

I first came across this podcast on Spotify which was great for me but finding it here just makes me want to listen to every episode again!
I highly recommend if you are interested in true crime but prefer a short summary of cases, most episodes are 20 ish minutes so they're great for snapshots of events. Very easy listen!

Factual, Charismatic, Witty & Empathetic

Been a massive fan for a long time. I really struggle with American accents so this is my absolute favourite podcast!
The stories are well researched and to the point. The host adds a touch of lightness before and after the story which takes the tension off the content.
A podcast that 100% doesn't take itself seriously and is delivered with such empathy for the victim.
I just cannot recommend this more! 👌

Bite size chunks of crime

Apart from the advertising at the beginning, which I know is necessary, I found these interesting and very well written. And because they’re short and informative it’s easy listening for a short journey in the car or when doing jobs around the house. Will be listening to more, and recommending to others with an interest in true crime.
