Well done Julia for sticking to the case and catching a con artist. The podcast is well put together. I could hardly wait to move to each chapter to discover what happened!

Really enjoyed this podcast. I usually listen to murder podcasts but this was a great change. I was so disappointed in the end with his sentence though , wish he had got a lot longer !! Great show 🥰

This podcast was addictive! Could have done with a script editor (strangely verbose in some sections eg self congratulatory) but really needing more explanation in others (yes we know this man was revolting but how? More adjectives needed besides missing teeth!). Also it appears that many of...Read full review »

Really enjoyed listening to this story, although the events for the victims are harrowing. The “eureka” moment at the arrest, is uplifting and well deserved. I hope that those who fell into Charlie’s trap find some real peace. 🙏

Informative, angry, sad, compassionate, unforgettable podcast a bit like but different “who the hell is Hamish”, sad to say but I know a few beautiful people that had this happen to them, me nearly one. You can never see in the dark but you can see out if it . Great podcast 💋
memphis 123 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/15/20
Interesting case of a scammer hiding all over the world. Weak story telling. The narrator/investigator claims the case is personal because the guy is also from New Zealand (eye roll) and then goes to exploit her friend’s sexual experiences to gain an audience for the podcast. Also, the audio for...Read full review »

Binge-worthy for sure! Very well done! We need a new season ASAP!!
jepasqui via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 09/11/20
Brilliant, detailed, captivating podcast! I really loved how the facts where told, it was clear and didn’t get too heavy. It was really satisfying that ‘Charlie’ was finally caught and the people that he had hurt where able to get some satisfaction. Would love a follow up episode to hear an update 😊
Mfangirl via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/11/20
Great podcast, hope to hear more from Julia! Would definitely listen.

I really enjoyed this. Julia is a legend.
Levitz788 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/10/20
Loved having a real PI tell how she approached this story. Too bad the sound effects were so annoying...the sharp pings every time the victim mentions texts drove my dog off the couch. And there there often these seemingly unrelated background sounds that distracted from the speaker. If I wasn’t...Read full review »

The audio is terrible, there’s a clicking sound when the narration switches from one person to another. I wish I could listen to the end but that sound is too annoying.
SallyP40 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/09/20
Well produced, great host and very interesting story! Hope you produce more!
AmyD78 via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 09/09/20
Very proud of you, past this on to sooo many friends. I am a kiwi and qld police officer and need more of you around. Keep doing what you do best and fab pod cast could not it it down.

Brilliant podcast, couldn’t put it down, really enthralling, he should have been given 10 years or more for the mess he has made and the amounts he has stolen! In fact hanging is too good for the scrote!
YO Scarborian via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/07/20
Great study, but poor recording quality. Also the start of each show uses a voice clip that is not relevant or a teaser to want you to continue
Ponder often via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/20
Great story - pulls you in. The interviews are raw and personal. The narration is pulled along by the investigation. You will especially like this podcast if you liked Who Is Hamish.
squinty604 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/06/20
Great storytelling, fascinating story but the music and sound effects oh my God please get rid of them they are so distracting that I almost can’t listen. They actually obscure some of the dialogue which is really frustrating for me
Fyrgowtch17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/20
This had me hooked from the beginning! A truly great podcast. Well done On your commitment to track this criminal down and putting an end to future suffering. Well done on all the people for coming forward to help catch him. Teamwork and dedication paid the highest dividend👏

Simply brilliant enjoyed every word listening to Thank you Armin
Legless but happy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/04/20
Was suggested by a friend to listen to this podcast.Binged every episode whilst gardening and thought Julia’s voice was great to listen to.. Look forward to her next story
podtimes12 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/31/20
This podcast was a great listen. Not only do you get to hear from the women impacted by this conman but you also feel like you’re right by Julies’s side throughout her hunt. I would love to hear more from Julie! Go get ‘em girl!
lavidecarli via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/26/20
Fantastic listen and excellent detective work! Loved it.
Cabonna via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/23/20
Loved listening to this podcast! I hope you create more!

Wow what a journey! Love your work Julia!
Ch4rlene@xx via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/17/20
Can not believe how this man was able to lie and get away with so much for so long. Brilliant podcast loved every minute of it.
anszjnc via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/16/20
What a great podcast, so amazing that you continued to follow him. I enjoyed your detailed info - it’s helpful to understand the process. Armchair critics are the worst don’t listen to their boring comments.
gbtmm via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/16/20
Those poor victims! :-( Good work Julia! :-)
aLlamaMa via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/15/20
Overall it was an interesting true story that made for a good listen. It could have been 5 stars but the additional sound effects and excessive dialogue dedicated to the narrator’s talent as a PI was frustrating and detracted from the story. I’d love to listen to another podcast like this from...Read full review »
so over lockdown via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/14/20
Promising beginning as I enjoy true crime and its resolution. However the sound engineer is just too intrusive with his or her own ‘art’ and the sound effects destroyed the narrative just too many times to keep me engaged. Near the end of episode 1 I gave up and found something similar that...Read full review »

This was gripping, the story was so well told . Great work on the podcast and catching Charlie 👏👏👏
karenport via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/12/20
Enjoyed listening to the podcast but can’t believe he only got just over 2 years jail time. For all his crimes he deserved at least 10 years. Pathetic criminal system.
Goodtaste62 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/10/20
The narration was over the top, and the accent is annoying.
learnfromiss via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/09/20
Thanks, loved it.
Sjsjdhhdkdhvejsjxjxkjdbghjsksx via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/08/20
Great story put together that is spoken by an excellent storyteller of an already fascinating and crazy true life experience in a way that you are experiencing all of it with them. Grateful I wasn’t. Hope to hear more from her investigations. Thank you for sharing a personal experience Vivian to...Read full review »
rhoadesm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/20
Really fascinating story but I found it a bit strange how the host would interject her own story about how she likes to work and how she operates as a private investigator, it made it feel disjointed and would have been much better if it was just straight reporting and interviewing relating to...Read full review »
Fleur_R via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/06/20
Such a great podcast and amazing story! Thank you for catching this predator! The story was gripping and I had tears in my eyes when you played the recording to Vivian in the last episode. Thanks!
TashV89 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/03/20
So good. And unlike many true crime podcasts finishes with a thrilling and satisfying end.
nilap52 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/03/20
This podcast was very well produced. Really felt for his victims. Just goes to show how easily all people from all walks of life can be pulled into this dangerous web. Pity he was not sentenced for much longer.
Wacko about Wiki via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/31/20
This podcast gave me chills. Too many similarities to my situation and that of hundreds of other women who were duped by the sociopath we let into our lives.
Jayanthi via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/30/20
Well done Julia!
AmandainLeith via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/27/20
Interesting story (basically another version of Dirty John and Who the Hell is Hamish) but not as good - narrator spends the entire podcast talking about what a good PI she is and telling us what to think rather than allowing us to draw our own conclusions. Tape recorder and keyboard sounds were...Read full review »
redbrry via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/27/20
This was an amazing listen, Julia did an amazing job and her years of hard work and excellent investigative skills make for a really great podcast. It kept my attention from beginning to end. Well worth a listen
rockynolan via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/24/20
This is a great podcast. I was a little hesitant to listen after reading the reviews. I don’t like the background noises and sound effects, they’re a little distracting. But I love the story telling. I love Julia. I didn’t find her “look how awesome I am” like others have said, I found she was...Read full review »
Bud2059 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/24/20
Pretty much Dirty John set in Australia but with a Kiwi narrator. Would prefer they allow listener to form their own judgements, not sure why need to listen to narrator telling us how think towards Charlie or the others involved. Listener doesn’t need to be told every 2mins how Charlie is so...Read full review »
mazstar1980 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/23/20
Brilliant work to Julia! You handled that with such compassion and grace. To all the intelligent women who trusted their gut, investigated, and refused to let it go I applaud you. I hope more people come forward and he can be charged again and serve more time. What a scum bag.
SarahCake83 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/21/20
Ok, we get that he texted her a lot. The constant text alert sound effects are ludicrous. I had to stop listening to the podcast for that reason alone.
Snohetta1988 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/20
What an amazing well put together podcast I never wanted the episodes to end..had me on the edge of my truck seat the whole time wondering what this grub would do next
Lumps on fire via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/21/20
This was such a fantastic podcast- such a shame that the narrator/ PI Julia spent a lot of extra & unnecessary time talking about her own achievements. Was a bit over the top to be honest
