I love that a podcast has been done about this. Hopefully bring this man to justice. I find it hard to listen to though when you hear about the terrible police work and the way my people are treated and still are to this day. 😪

As a white Australian woman I am acutely aware of my privileged existence and the fact that I have been raised in a prosperous place that is virtually crime free; all of which contributes to how much this incredibly riveting show has grabbed me and shaken me to the core in the way that if...Read full review »

I like the idea of these types of podcasts but Dan is no Hedley Thomas and he also lacks knowledge of the criminal justice system here in NSW. I thought that was obvious in his questioning and summation of the evidence.

No doubt as for many who listened to this podcast, I was horrified by the crimes, the prevailing social attitudes against aboriginal townspeople and the failure to produce and successfully prosecute the person or persons responsible. As a mother I can only imagine the heartbreak of the parents...Read full review »

First time listening to the podcast and it’s 2019. So understandably sad and unfortunate for everyone involved. Truly worth the listen.

I binged the whole season on a drive to a meeting and back and though not a case I’d ever heard if I found it fascinating from start to finish. Wasn’t perfect but 4 stars felt a disservice so 5 it is. Presenter is generally objective and seems a level headed fair journalist. I’d thoroughly...Read full review »

It is offensive that this presenter did not have the decency to pronounce one of the victims’ names correctly. In every clip of this victim’s family talking about her, they pronounce her name quite differently than the pronunciation that the presenter uses through the podcast. That shows a...Read full review »

I really feel for the families of the victims in this case, I really hope the podcast brings about some justice for them.

Great, sometimes brave investigative reporting, giving a fascinating insight into Australian life, attitudes & a serial killer dogged by curses that will never let him rest.
Moonlitvioletta via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/28/19
Important and well-put together podcast. The countless reviews where people are saying they now believe that Jay is innocent after listening to his interview (of course Jay is going to deny everything you idiots...serial killers know how to act as a ‘normal, decent’ person) is making me lose hope...Read full review »

I enjoy retrospective cold cases and hope that this podcast is followed up with any new findings and evidence however I was thorough disappointed with the journalists interview with the alleged at the end of the series , there were so many questions that could have been asked and answers left...Read full review »

Sad
Very sad that no one has be brought to justice 🤬
Mae🎈 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/19/19
The amount of reviews that state “I thought Jay was guilty when I heard all the evidence but after hearing him talK so Politely I thinK he is innocent” says a lot about our country
HiPPityHoPPditty via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/18/19
I actually went to School with Clinton Speedy, so I was very interested in this case. Dan Box sounded too accusing towards Jay Hart, and in the end, I now think he is innocent. The final episode allows him to state his side of the case, and he makes a lot more sense than Dan. Worth a listen for...Read full review »
Not so good. via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/15/19
I felt that Don Box presented a great podcast....until the end. I saw Jay Hart as a guilty man, that was until I heard the bonus episode; the full interview with the accused. Hart sounded honest and convincing, he was patient, never lost his cool, he was respectful and even grateful at the end....Read full review »

Really appreciated this podcast. Never heard of this case before and really helped me understand what had happened and what it was like 20+ years ago
WhateverTrever via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/02/19
I have every belief this should be a decent podcast but I can’t hear a thing. I’d have to listen to this with noise cancelling headphones in a silent padded room to actually be able to hear anything. Beyond frustrating so I won’t be continuing. Shame.
JCering via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/01/19
It’s our responsibility to listen to this story and demand justice for these children and their families.
sophtastico via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/26/19
Great podcast with an interesting story. Felt a bit short but overall a good listen for fans of true crime
McScurvy Pants via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/28/19
I noticed the glaring absence of a mention, at the start of the podcast, that deceased indigenous individuals are discussed. Isn’t that the correct and respectful etiquette?
LMW818 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/02/19
I listened to this series a couple of years ago and found it fascinating. I’d recommend it to fans of casefile and the teachers pet. Sad story, not only that people died, but the police mess up in investigating it
Stricklandstreet via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/19/18
BOX had let his own opinion and want it to be HART cloud this podcast. If it was the reverse and an aboriginal was being hounded in the same fashion there would be an uproar. HART is afforded the same presumption of innocence as everyone else until the evidence states otherwise. On what has...Read full review »

After listening to the podcast, I had Jay hung. After listening to Jay talk. I reckon he’s innocent. Just my opinion.
Tas. via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/10/18
Although at times a little rough around the edges, this podcast had me captivated from the beginning. Insightful, informative and at times cripplingly raw.
BethA44 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/21/18
Meh
I felt like this podcast lacked something, maybe because the episodes were too short. I felt like we were given a conclusion at the start and that wasn’t developed on. It also seemed like the narrator didn’t understand the legal system and the presumption of innocence, and that coloured the...Read full review »

So compelling and so incredibly sad. 5 stars. Highly recommend
Farma flow via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 08/07/18
This crime podcast is so sloppy! It falls flat when it comes to presenting a case with thorough research and balanced analysis of events, witnesses and police and court proceedings. Other crime podcasts do it so well. Not this one. Two journalists driving round in a car to get a feel for their...Read full review »
Haich via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/15/18
I really enjoyed the podcast and I really hope the families get some answers. But I do have to say that phone call you had with jay made me so uncomfortable. It was pretty unprofessional and hostile. If you want to get the full story you should be impartial.
Rachrex via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/12/18
I really wanted to like this but I actually agree with the reviews that this is quite biased. It actually convinced me that Jay is innocent. If not there is definitely not enough evident to convince me he is guilty.
loucpitcher via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/03/18
Dont give me it was bad journalism. What are you a current affair watcher? The facts are facts and as much as it might upset your version on reality this needed to be written for the people who have been and continue to be treated as second class citizens. Go and learn some Australian history...Read full review »
Wake up Australia via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/23/18
Well-written coverage of a shameful case in Australia's history. The families of these precious children have waited far too long for justice and this podcast highlights the barriers that have exacerbated the situation. I found the interviews with various community members very interesting...Read full review »

Harrowing time for the Bowraville families - with no justice over the murder of their children. I hope they do get justice soon.
Lrsley-Anne1 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/22/17
Sad
So sad that this story is still unknown. Hopefully the children and their families will receive justice after the newest developments this year.
Teaksss via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/19/17
This pod cast is very informative, very well done!! The journalist is bringing media attention to this case hay it deserves and should have received. This pod cast takes a look at both sides of the case and is very fair and is not judgemental
Nikkkitaaagirl via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/11/17
High end production and a true crime story that will tear you apart.
Jennimay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/17
I grew up spending a lot of time in bowra so i knew about this but it was so good to hear the full story!!
Missjasminejay via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/05/17
Both the criminal cases and this podcast are deserving of so much more attention.
Joel H. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/17
Gripping storytelling, respectfully done. Excellent journalism that actually brought about justice and change. Well done Dan Box and team
rip_bonkers via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/01/17
This podcast kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end especially because I grew up near Bowraville at the time of the murders. I couldn't believe I had never heard about them. This podcast is so important because it sheds light on this terrible story and how race played a huge...Read full review »

Very interesting; I wish there were more episodes.

I listened to this podcast all in one day because I found it incredibly compelling. Pleae bring out more podcasts like this one!!!

Couldn't stop listening. Not quite "Serial" but was amazing. You may think it's biased one way at the beginning but you may not think that at the end.Read full review »
