I feel this podcast needs a GREAT editor, to help shape some sort of pacing. The bulk of the episodes are just unedited interviews without decent summarizing or analysis, or background for other local cases that the audience wouldn’t know about. Host/creator/reporter must be ruthless in editing...Read full review »

I have to say that this entire podcast could have been presented in half the time. It comes across as a little too much tabloid newspaper/commercial TV style for me. Do you really need to define the victims as “beautiful”young women”??? That’s unnecessary. Not to mention name dropping of other...Read full review »

The information and content is interesting but there are so many pauses and delays due to added in audio snippets to set the scene and clips of the theme tune

This was interesting, but really the same could have been said in half the time. The same music theme was played throughout the podcast every few minutes which was quite annoying!

After listening to similar podcasts such as Teacher’s Pet, I was expecting quality. Unfortunately I found this to be an amateur opinion piece.

The only reason I am still listening is because I’m from Perth. Content moves way too fast between the episodes, and seriously, why can’t you just sum up what the judge said in layman’s terms instead of reading out paragraphs from the statute?

Compared to other true crime podcasts this one is a bit slow, just talking through publicly available info.

If you were here then, followed and also read the books. This one for you. I personally would like to know the total as it flows, how many people are listening to this Podcast. It is so close to everyone’s front gate.

Heard about this case on another podcast so was very excited to see the case have a whole podcast dedicated to what happened. So far so very good. Patiently anticipating the next episode!

This is an interesting story but this podcast could be better. The narrator speaks too fast and sounds like he is reading from a book.
Teesh909 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/22/19
It is nice to listen to an Aussie podcast. It is well done
9958577584 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/21/19
“beautiful” girls... this kind of reductionist language only underpins the objectification of women that leads them to be the victims misogyny. Sexist male gaze, sensationalised, no discussion of why men rape and murder women. Disappointingly male and tabloid. Wouldn’t waste any more time...Read full review »

Good start so far. The music is a bit loud and repetitive though
vmars87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/19
I listen to a lot of podcasts & this is very irritating to listen to. I was disappointed.
Vic landowner via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/15/19
The tinkling music drives me crazy!! Can you find something else. Other than that it’s a good listen🙂
Geeburger via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/14/19
Gary is a great narrator on this intense listening podcast.Can not wait for the next instalment.It can’t come quick enough .
Djksdnjsnsmjs via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/14/19
You exhibit such carelessness towards the women at the heart of this story - they aren’t unique individuals to you, just victims you can use for media fodder. The whole podcast consists of comment from male journalists about their experiences and feelings. Zero appreciation for the misogyny that...Read full review »

There’s no flow to the content. I’m not gripped at all. Will listen to ep 3 but if it’s not interesting like the last 2, I’m out. I appreciate that ‘The Teacher’s Pet’ was a huge success, but this feels like it’s trying to be a copy cat podcast and that’s just annoying. Work on the content and...Read full review »

This is a very interesting case. Good info but the first two episodes so far are quite disjointed. Some parts are not in chronological order and there are some random pieces/interviews.
Alicia78RE via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/13/19
Shame, this podcast could be great and informative, instead it is a constant advertisement for Channel 7 and The West (who’s reporting is average, at the best of times). The interview with Basil Zemplis was weird and unnecessary and the music and hosts voice, just wrong. They have sensationalised...Read full review »
MooKooWho via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/10/19
So far this podcast feels underproduced and is plodding along. To play a full unedited interview from a previous suspect who has been cleared seems like they’re drip feedings story with not much substance. Not up to the usual Aussie true crime podcast standards unfortunately.
Georgia Brooks via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/10/19
Being a True Crime fan and a Perth local who grew up when this was happening, I was so excited to see this pop up in my suggested listens. However after listening to the first episode I’m not sure I can put myself through anymore. Whilst I could listen to Hedley Thomas speak all day this...Read full review »

I wanted to like this podcast as the story really interests me but the production is so amateurish compared to other crime podcasts.
Dave WA via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/09/19
Disappointed in the west’s choice of adshead. I found this podcast to be boring. Doesn’t do the narrative justice nor the victims. The music is a joke. No where near the standard I’d expect from a veteran newspaper.
podcastgirl1993 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/09/19
Not a terrible podcast but is not well paced, just kind of plods along with the odd bit of music to try and spice it up. The constant referencing of channel 7 and the West Australian (the producers of the podcast) and its staff/reporters is a bit much.
Bletchley69 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/09/19
Excuse the pun but this is overkill, milking it for all it’s worth, boring.
Maxtopia via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/08/19
So far so good but for the build up to only release one 20min episode & then wait (still waiting) over a week for the 2nd episode is pretty annoying. Most podcasts I subscribe to release weekly - especially when it’s an ongoing story... C’mon guys, we are waiting!!!!
Hudsmum via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/08/19
wow
frightening and gripping
CraigD45 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/07/19
Truly fascinating case but the musical interludes are too frequent and far too dramatic. People listen to podcasts for the story not the sound effects. If those were cut the story would be far easier to focus on. Also interviewing a news anchor that lived there during the time? Massive eye roll.
queenclare48 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/07/19
Takes you back to a different era.
iPad Pete via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/06/19
I hope this podcast can improve and hit the standards of the similar ABC podcasts on true crime stories. From the first episode the narration is well written but sounds slightly stilted. It would be nice to have some more information on what Perth and Claremont was like at the time, how women in...Read full review »
Jane Hakanson via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/06/19
I have an interest in this case. The reporting is way too emotive. Stories of this nature require facts and facts alone “terror”, “evil” etc. are poor choice of words to use. If you are going to use an interview from someone who was around at the time use someone other than Mr Zempilis and...Read full review »
Edgeledge via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/05/19
The subject is great but the delivery is a bit dry. The production values can be stepped up a few notches. The narrators voice didn't keep me glued to the story. It got boring and i think that's due to the delivery as the case is actually interesting. Not as riveting as other true crime podcasts...Read full review »
lisaindarwin via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/04/19
I wish I could give this zero. This is an absolutely appalling production by the West. It’s genuinely painful to listen to; the music is so kitsch, there is no structure and no compelling insight or discussion of evidence. It is a shameless attempt to capture an audience. Go listen to Ron Iddles’...Read full review »

Thought the subject can’t be considered entertaining, the podcast is fascinating & I am hooked. Well produced & researched, I felt like I was back there during the time it all happened.
SusanRand via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/04/19
Content is thrilling and the production is outstanding. Can’t wait for more.
ajdjeksbrm via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/04/19
When is the next episode out?
iPad Pete via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/03/19
The content is good. The music and production is painful and totally set to the wrong levels. It’s a poor imitation to other crime podcasts in that regard, if this is fixed it would be a more pleasant listening experience and allow the content to shine.

Can’t wait for more

Exce;lent reporting. will be an epic trial & i hope so much the families find closure..

Excellent. I look forward to the next podcast.
JenniferWindsor via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/01/19
So good. Made me remember what it was like when those women disappeared. All of WA was talking about it.
Ben F Anderson via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/01/19
So good!! chilling and great commentary
KMACMOL via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/01/19
Love this, well worth a listen. Can’t wait to hear more!
johnsy_83 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/01/19
This is a perfect introduction to what will be the biggest trial in the history of Western Australia. Gary’s knowledge of the Claremont serial killer case teamed with audio from the time of the crimes makes for a podcast which will leave you wanting more.
Matt commander via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/01/19
Terrific scene-setter, reckon this will be right at the top of my list once the trial starts.
SinBin87 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/01/19
Very strong podcast, highly recommended.
