I have so many different emotions about this story I want to say. They are the bad guys and horrible people but part of me feels a bit of sympathy for jenn and Sarah the worse part of this is no one would listen. This could have been avoided. I love how you two told this story great work

By episode 8, I still have no idea how the children were abused: no food? beatings with a belt? Okay, but where are the details. The narration starts on a critical issue, but fails to explain. This is one of the worst directed crime podcasts I've ever DL'd. Take a lesson from "Casefiles."

If can give this podcast zero stars i would. It is heavily opinionated and biased. It is very disgusting how they are trying to force this victim narrative on us. The only victims were the kids. The women are only seen as victims because of their privilege.

Great podcast, very informative , extremely thorough, love the format and the Hosts

“Jen Hart LOVED her kids” one reporter said. Nope, she could not have. Anyone that’s been in an abusive relationship can tell you that this woman was not capable of real love and you can’t make a judgement based on some photos and stupid, faked Facebook posts. “They were Monsters” is more ...Read full review »

I’m not neck deep in hateful politics, so I wasn’t looking for an agenda to be in a podcast about 6 innocent children lost. They done a good job allowing the actual people involved to tell the story and open us up to how and why these things can happen right under our noses and go unnoticed. RIH...Read full review »

It became long in the tooth after the first few episodes and the political agenda behind the two hosts bleeds through and ruined it for me. White guilt and bad white people who don’t accept mixed families is the message.

Ok
Interesting and tragic story, but really could have done without the political/leftist propaganda
joan1876 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/19
Great podcast although so sad. Mind blowing incident. I feel so bad for these kids
Alifx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/19
Presented in a way that you felt no empathy for the primary Characters, as they were never fleshed out. And no real insight to the victims either. I was left feeling that a large and important segment was missing from this podcast. It’s a toss up “awful “ or just “really bad”. Don’t bother...Read full review »

This is a very well done podcast and well investigated. A lot of reviews mention their frustration with the podcasters decision to have sympathy for the moms in this case. As a post-Adoption counselor, it’s my job to make sure this doesn’t happen to children in my case load and to do that... you...Read full review »

I loved the first episode; however, with each episode (even the adds) include more bleeding heart liberal agenda and opinions rather than the story. Not worth your time if you don’t like the liberal victim mentality.
frankebw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/19
Am I the only one that thinks the problem with this entire horrible event is what we now perceive as perfection? Hearing the journalists & ppl being interviewed repeating “perfect” family turned my stomach. A “perfect” family imo is a man married to a woman with a son & a daughter. I’ll say it to...Read full review »

The abuse and death of these beautiful human beings is tragic, no matter where you fall in the racial spectrum. Debates on white privilege, racial divides, and sexual orientation do little to get us to a more peaceable existence. Of course we should be outraged about the crimes committed, while...Read full review »
ajhuse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/19
I love podcast but stick to the story you are telling. Leave your opinions out and one line political jabs. This story is horrific. The abuse that is in the foster care system is sad and real. The amount of people with mental issues caring for children is staggering. This is not a story of...Read full review »
ATK 90 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/19
I listened to all of the episodes because I couldn't help but feel that these children need to be remembered. Their story is so heartbreaking! It’s also disgusting that these savage women were depicted to let us have pity on them! They were evil and sick! They only had those children for welfare...Read full review »

nedrysshavingcream via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/19
I am happy their story was told, but I agree with the hundreds of reviewers that it’s quite sickening how the journalists sympathize with the Hart moms. They even put themselves in their shoes and discuss the stresses of being moms. Umm no. The Hart women were sick and killed six kids. Their...Read full review »

This 10 year old girl fell through the cracks in a broken system. Everyone looked away while she was starved and beaten. Eventually she was placed in a trash can and burned. Stepmother was sentenced to death today. It would be interesting to know just how many times she was failed by her...Read full review »

Really grotesque how they defend the two woman multiple times throughout
Paula creamer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/19
Ads were excessive.. some of the podcast felt a bit amateurish but I kept listening.
katiebelle8 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/29/19
I understand why this podcast will be/already is really popular. It’s a riveting story and it’s conveyed here pretty well. I am curious though about the journalistic integrity. Most of the time the hosts refer to posts on Facebook to make their points, while simultaneously weaving the long thread...Read full review »
ScurvyNerd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/19
I was very into this podcast when it was first released and was excited as each new episode dropped but then...The podcast just became sort of meh after awhile. Nothing new was being revealed. No more insight was gained and it just sort of limped along until its conclusion. There were so many...Read full review »

Would’ve been better without the political agenda against Trump, I get the fact that the Hart family hated him, but come on. Was the line in episode 2 about the boy being an animal lover who hated Trump essential to the story?
MisterHellJ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/19
Thank you for gently telling this story. I’d never heard of it but couldn’t stop listening once I started. What a horrible tragedy. Prayers for peace and love to all effected by this.
NikNak1981 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/19
I just binged listened to this in 3 days. It is a fantastic piece of journalism that peeks into not only what happened to this family, but the gaping holes in so many of our governmental systems. I am left wondering HOW we as a society let this happen. I am a white woman with white children and I...Read full review »
sdjzru via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/19
I thought the hosts had the courage to take a difficult story and look at the facts of that story and share them openly. I liked that they shared their own insights about raising their families and contrasted that to the Hart’s. Nice job. Good listen.
Lake DJ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/19
It just goes to show you don’t really know anyone. Horrific, sad story.
Kelseybolen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/19
Not bad. Binged this over the weekend. The narration irritated me at times. The actual story is sickening and angered me. It explores various social issues which might be one of the reasons this dreadful case of neglect, abuse and murder is relatively unheard of. Would like to see this story told...Read full review »
hollylanagan via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/22/19
The hosts are clearly far left women and absolutely show it in their narrative of this retelling of events. They barely touched on the fact these women were never questioned because of their status as a protected member of a minority community. People didn’t want to seem bigoted and so they kept...Read full review »

I was looking for something in depth and engaging after listening to Cold. Unfortunately, I could not get into this podcast. I felt like the narrators heaped way too much sympathy on the killers and spent entirely too much time talking about the pretty picture they put out to the world. It seemed...Read full review »

interesting topic completely botched by very misguided brainwashed hosts who had to literally start an episode by saying they aren’t sure if they can take on this topic of liberal lesbian mothers killing their six adopted black children because the hosts are white and therefore just can’t...Read full review »

Sad and interesting
Jonah Givelber via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/19
You didn’t talk about the inquest enough. You barely glazed over it.
Iwantmy$5back via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/19
I almost stopped listening after the first few minutes of the first episode. At one point the podcasters use the term “relatable” to describe this horrific act of violence toward children. It is absolutely not relatable. That’s a poor choice of words. In the end, the podcast brought to light some...Read full review »
strudel75 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/19
This podcast was well done, and overall I enjoyed the production. However, I felt the reporters spent waaaay too much time empathizing with the parents and attempting to understand where they were coming from. I can understand trying to understand them to an extent, but it was to the point of...Read full review »

A great podcast covering an unthinkable topic. I believe this may save other children from abuse or the same outcome by highlighting the flaws in the system. The writing and the presentation are top notch.
Glamour Fan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/19
Good narrative, but a lot more speculation than facts. It felt like a lot of reaching and gossip to me... But a decent listen, nonetheless. Just take it all with a grain of salt.
Wissabo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/19
Through and through, this podcast projected a clear and deliberate objectivity that I really appreciated. A sickening and heartbreaking story told in fairness to all. It was clear that the intention was to NOT take a side and tell the story with all information available. WELL DONE! (Awful and...Read full review »
Hisoccermom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/19
I wanted to like this podcast but was really thrown off by the sympathy that was given to Sarah and Jen. The hosts spent too much time focusing on the parents and not enough on the reality of the abuse the children were facing and the fact that it was all rooted in antiblack racism. They were the...Read full review »

daveymeman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/19
Even as someone who followed this story in the news, there is so much to tell of this true crime story. I binged this...so good.
Mtngirl7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/19
Having listened to the entire podcast, I believe the creators are contributing to a narrative about youth in foster care being so “broken” that we should extend every grace to anyone who considers having them in their homes. It’s the kind of ideology that led me to be adopted by someone who...Read full review »
sertralinequeen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/19
This story struck me when I first saw it in the news and couldn’t comprehend how and why. Hearing some backstory just made it more tragic. The follow up episode about the hearing, they talked about how the Hart women possibly felt that if we can’t have our children then no one can but I don’t...Read full review »
Maria617 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/19
The children names are Markis, Hannah, Abigail, Devonte, Jeremiah and Ciera, they were murdered by their adoption mothers as well as failed by racist adoption and foster care system. This is a painful listen that is full of what ifs........
kelly via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/13/19
Started off good but crashed the end. A lot of discussion surrounding this case was speculative because the murderers led such private lives. Doesn’t mean we have to create empathetic narratives about them to fill in the blanks RIP Hart Children.
ShizukaRose via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/19
The hosts spent an inordinate amount of time focusing on the facade of this couple and the annoyingly long facebook posts/perceptions of their friends. Ten minutes would’ve sufficed. 👌
Courthausen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/19
I found this a desperately sad listen, but it did seem that the presenters wanted to avoid judging the Hart’s so badly that they verge on over correcting and seem to excuse them instead. I found this really perplexing. Obviously there were deep seated issues that led to both choosing to commit...Read full review »
HaHaBhog via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/12/19
Such a well done podcast. Thanks for delving into this complicated, heartbreaking and difficult story. Clearly mental health issues and a lot of complex issues involved here. The narcissism and mental illness of one abusive person resulted in such tragedy, and maybe it could have been avoided if...Read full review »
