Love the mix of old school crime and new forensics. A nice twist on the true crime genre

Gosh darn it, too many part twos!!! Skip the nerve damage and c section chatter and you’ll have plenty of time for the whole story 😜

I could really do without the faux chit chat at the beginning of the podcast. Kate Winkler Dawson starts with all the fake bonhomie. I just couldn’t care less about your abdomen story Kate cringe! Paul Holes is good though.

I love it. I listen to each one the moment it is uploaded to my phone. Yes I listen when I get home from work and multitask all the heck out of this podcast. Good listen.

I liked this podcast until they started reading out the advertisements themselves. The ads are so awful and false and their voices are so unnatural. It’s all made worse by the fact there’s no audible tone or music to denote the start of an advert. I find it spoils the whole episode. Please get...Read full review »

Interesting podcast that offers a new perspective on true crime. Plus, Paul Holes is all I need to catch my attention.

The only problem with this podcast is that it only comes out once a week and I immediately listen to it (and then have to wait a whole 7 days!). Love the banter, love the experience Paul brings to the show, and how much I learn about history and the logic that detective work uses. Kate is an...Read full review »

Have such bad grammar? It’s the tool of their trade. Use it properly. Stop mixing plurals and singular terms. Be educated.
TildaJean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/24
I don’t understand why KWD describes herself as someone who has written about true crime for 25 years, then constantly acts like she is shocked by totally normal elements of crime. Is it an act for the show or has she truly lived such a sheltered life that she is constantly stunned and baffled...Read full review »

I found this podcast about six months ago and have binged every episode! Absolutely love it.
Apricat22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/03/24
I binged this podcast in an unhealthy way. It’s Amazing!!
skybratt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/24
Having had tangential connections to 3 murders as a child (between 8-10) I have always been drawn to crime and murder investigations. And because only one of those murderers was prosecuted, long forgotten, unsolved murders are fascinating to me. Paul is one of the heroes who has evolved as...Read full review »

But did Paul Holes work on GSK? He never EVER mentions it, so I'm not sure. I do love KWD puts him firmly in place as her assistant. It's nice to see his ego have to shrink a bit. Stories are interesting too. Nice break from gory present day true crime. Edited to 5 stars because I love...Read full review »

I love this podcast! I always look forward to Wednesday when the podcast drops. I enjoy the history that Kate unfolds while Paul gives his expertise in the law. It is very top notch!!!
siamese mama via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/24
Stories are interesting and seem well researched. Love Paul Holes, on the fence about Dawson. Listening to Coyote Flat it seems like filler telling the listener many times that they were racist in 1920, yes, we know. Also, to inform the listener they called them Indians, but we say Native...Read full review »

They just chat most of the time. They aren’t witty or interesting. It takes so long for them to get to the point. It takes half the episode for them to get to the point. And this type of cold case true crime podcast is one of my favorite genres.
Camyado via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/24
Sorry guys, I’ve listened to every show and LOVE them but the “you knows” from both Kate and Paul are getting out of control and are distracting. I will totally update this comment later. I get that it becomes a habit so just wanted to point it out.
LMSMK25 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/24
Two types of medical degrees: MD (allopathic) and DO (osteopathic). Both must complete a residency and pass their boards to be licensed physicians or surgeons on the US. Surprised you didn’t research this prior to your episode on Riverdale, NJ hospital.

Thank you…
deletepopcat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/24
I could listen to these two talk about anything. Great chemistry between them. Good true crime concept. Very respectfully done.
10,000 Pretzels via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/24
So hard to find good podcasts without any bias in them. Paul Holes in very intelligent. Enjoyed his commentary. Female host, good grief, liberal all day. Whiney woman.

Great podcast- why do I care about your fish tank?? I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ but I am invested :) 🐟 🐠

…when hearing Paul explaining he’d like to extend his old man
Jppbkc via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/24
Every week I look forward to hearing Kate and Paul discuss another “buried” mystery. Their interaction is great and the stories are always intriguing. I love all the anecdotal information about their families and fish. I also feel connected because I live north of Austin and grew up in the San...Read full review »

Why does Kaye laugh and chuckle and the most inappropriate time?
martinbcmi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/24
Unfortunately due to the conversational nature, I find it very difficult to follow the actual story. There is just way too many tangents for me. I wish they outlined the crime and then engaged in the discussion.
Kbuds via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/08/24
Kate and Paul are an unlikely duo but they work so well together! This show is so unique and interesting with Kate’s storytelling and Paul’s crime-solving knowledge. Love it love it! 🕵️‍♂️💕
itsAVL via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/08/24
I love hearing these stories and the insights Paul can provide on how the outcome could have been different.
McFortyFive via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/24
I LOVE this podcast! Kate asks all the questions I’m thinking, and Paul answers them so intelligently while also not assuming facts about the case or over-romanticizing what may have happened. Very easy to listen to and every episode is incredibly interesting.
kenna.nichole via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/29/24
Please, PLEASE, stop saying the crutch phrase - “you know!” But, you know, absolutely love this podcast otherwise.
Misssy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/24
I love history and true crime! This is literally the perfect podcast.
Chelsey Beavers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/24
I love old cases and Paul Holes. Very interesting cases and not the usual true crime podcasts. And I love the female host Kate, they are a good match. So please keep going 😉
RdNico via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 02/21/24
I was so surprised when they first announced this duo. They seemed like such a weird combo, but I LOVE the show. It’s usually an historical glimpse into history and murder (perfect.)
123//--:: via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/24
I love hearing the perspective that Paul has on the cases as well as Kate! Paul has so much knowledge and sheds light on things I never knew. My only dislike of the show, as it has gone on, it seems like Kate puts extra attention on race issues, how females used to be treated etc. Not to say...Read full review »
CapCoJo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/24
I would love to listen to these guys talk about more recent cases. The super old cases are just boring. Great team, love the way they communicate. The subject matter is lacking. I was pumped when they talked about a case from the 1980s! 1700s-1800s, who cares!?
TonR80 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/24
many true crime podcasts are disappointing that this is not one of them. Both people involved, Kate Winkler, Dawson and Paul holes, our exceedingly intelligent people, and they bring perspectives to historical crime that are thought-provoking and well worth your time. I give 10 stars if I could.
Spike 1954 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/24
Paul and Kate are the perfect pairing. The way Kate unfolds each story while Paul analyzes is both fascinating and entertaining. Keep up the great work you do!

Love this podcast! I keep up with it weekly. Good work 👏🏽
Chart addict via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/24
I followed long ago and just turned to this morning. I’m not too far into the podcast and I love how the cases are broken down and looked at differently than any other podcast I’ve listened to. And I listen to quite a few true crime podcasts. I will continue to listen. Thank you for the wonderful...Read full review »
Heathunt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/24
I love the actual true crime part of this podcast. But the first 5 minutes of most episodes are just the hosts pushing their books and praising each other so much that it almost gets uncomfortable. It’s too bad because when they finally get to the subject of the podcast, it’s always a good tale...Read full review »
dropseventy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/24
I am a huge fan of true crime podcasts. Finding one that is so different and unique is hard to do. Kate and Paul look at cases in such a compelling way that only they can do. 10/10 recommend!
KateSums via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/24
This is an interesting take on true crime and I enjoy listening to it. I’m only giving it three stars though because how is that Kate specifically can talk about sexual offenders and truly horrifying crimes without using overly judgmental language, but on the episode about Hannah Mary Tabbs (a...Read full review »

Well written, informative, compelling.
Moomeeno via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 01/25/24
The only reason I give this podcast any stars at all as for Paul holes. I was so excited to have them back in the podcast, but this one is just bizarre. This woman claims to have all of this experience and true crime but I have been shocked at the things that she doesn’t know and honestly with...Read full review »

So well done and incredibly interesting! Thank you for all of the work that the whole team puts into this one! It is so good!!
m.burr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/24
this podcast is a wonderfully dynamic conversation of an Agatha Christie style of historical true crime storytelling. Kate Winkler Dawson and Paul Holes create a whole scene of time and place and a true portrait of the people involved. It’s the very best of storytelling with two experts who...Read full review »

Regarding the Lucy Pollard murder Your perception of Southerners as “white man bad” is just tiresome. You speak of people from the South as if they woke up every morning with the intention to either murder blacks or railroad them. And your disbelief that blacks could actually commit crimes and...Read full review »
