I’ve listened to thousands of crime pods and this one is just phenomenal! Thank you so much for the work you do. Nancy, you are incredibly compassionate, professional, considerate & brilliant. I can’t wait for your next season. ❤️❤️

I like the podcast. Don’t love you just took the podcast. Turned it into a tv. With absolutely no new material. This podcast hasn’t been updated with a decent show. In a good year. I think her podcasting days r done. I’ll be deleting the show. As she doesn’t update with new episodes.

Great podcast. Happened upon it by accident but the format and the story telling is very well done.

Would be better if you do not let the subject person speak as much while the story is being told.

I find crime very interesting and easy to follow. The host , Nancy Hixt, speaks slowly and concisely. I have been thoroughly enjoying this podcast. Theresa Heuchert

I just binged every episode, love it!

Ms Hixt I thoroughly enjoy your podcast and TV show. You are an amazing storyteller. You are very professional and well spoken. And I find your podcast episodes so very interesting. I believe yours is the best Canadian true crime and should be up there internationally as well.

Eh
This was good when cases were covered and not laced with Social Justice messages and non-cases, or boring cases with a wimpy narrative. Stopped listening and following.

Good stories and interviews but the background music is cringeworthy

Professional and respectful

Love the stories but no longer following because of commercials

I love crime beat ! I have listen to all of them, Nancy is so easy to listen to and without a doubt she is a very caring person… my all time fav podcast
Blondy1969 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/12/22
This podcast feels like the overwrought late-90s tabloid/news-panic version of true crime podcasting. It lacks the human angle that has made true crime such a popular topic. It doesn’t understand the difference between tv new segments and longer-form storytelling. It’s overly self-congratulatory...Read full review »

Tragic story on the horrible death of Arcelie I hope the cowardly despicable excuse of a low life person who committed this attack is never released from prison!!!

Freaking awesome
Tim3011 via Apple Podcasts · Ghana · 03/02/22
This podcast is so well done! It’s full of captivating interviews with those involved with the cases at the time; the victims, witnesses, jurors, cops, & reporter Nancy Hixt, herself. Being from the States, I hadn’t heard of most of the cases covered & it’s both fascinating &...Read full review »

I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is one of my top ones!
CathyintheUSA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/22
I could listen to Nancy talk all day long. Her voice envelopes you with her caring passion, so clear and easy to understand. She doesn’t speculate but gets her information first hand by speaking directly to the ones involved, following up on Canadian cases that you may have heard and have...Read full review »

I’m from the UK. Love this. Love it’s direct, to the point, no silly banter and fair, measured reporting. Thank you.

I appreciate how Nancy focuses the humanity of the victims and gives us continuity on stories we hear snippets of over years! This is the perfect crime documentary for my commute and I especially appreciate the background context she provides to validate the story. True credibility in journalism.

This was the first time I had listened to a podcast and I was hooked. I have become a True Crime Podcast junkie. If all podcasts were put together as well as Nancy does her podcasts I would never get anything done. The Alberta connection for me is very relevant as I am Albertan born and raised...Read full review »

For the 3-4 shows you put out a year it sucks you waste part of it on behind the scenes crap.

Intelligent Sensitive Thorough Engaging Personal Best podcast I’ve listened to.

The soundtrack in the background is insufferable
plsnoooo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/26/22
Nancy does an absolutely phenomenal job at explaining these crimes, you can hear the passion in her voice. Makes the listener feel engaged. Keep them coming !
Seanny-bravo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/23/22
This is my new favorite true crime podcast. Episode 1 in season 1 is really disturbing though. I wouldn’t recommend it because of the sheer awfulness of what happened. However, the rest of the episodes are super interesting and not as disturbing.
@TopFan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/22
I love how you describe every detail. You are a great storyteller. Great podcast
Camcake via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/22
I have been listening to Crime Beat for a few years and have always liked Nancy’s careful treatment of the cases. The newest season is too much for this hardened true crime buff to handle. Each story is more of a gut punch than the last, and the details are both deeply depressing and...Read full review »

Nancy Hixt brings integrity, compassion and respect to provide the stories that honour the victims and their lives and surviving family and friends without putting the spotlight on the heinous acts of the criminals responsible - or the criminals themselves. Keep up the excellent work Crime Beat...Read full review »

I started listening to Crime Beat, was soon addicted. Nancy does an excellent job of telling the entire background and story. I have shared my thoughts with co-workers and have several of them listening to Crime Beat as well. My favourite podcasts by far.
Troydw via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/12/22
I love this podcast. Crimes are not sensationalized, focus is on the victim and handled with the utmost care and sensitivity. Nancy is a true crime reporter and excellent storyteller only sharing factual information of what took place from real sources. She shares the most haunting crimes in a...Read full review »

You are so good at telling all these stories !! I have listened to all of them twice !! Keep up the great work !! Nancy / Oklahoma

Thank you, Nancy. I appreciate you giving voice to those who can no longer speak for themselves. Although, some info is so hard to hear and often shed tears, I am grateful that someone still cares about those who are no longer with us. I stumbled across your podcast and now hooked. I love that...Read full review »

We hear so much about the dark side of society, but I love how Nancy and her team have included the human side of crime. All facets: victims, their families, and the perpetrators. The reporting is comprehensive, and the production is top quality. Kudos to the team!
Otkzt via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/04/22
I love this podcast so very much! I love Nancy’s voice, her accent, her storytelling.. Love the fact that she’s an actual journalist and talks about cases she covered before. This is my first podcast I’m actually sticking with and can’t wait to listen to after a long day at work and in the...Read full review »

Love the work you put into this. I want to listen to your take and the humanity. No 911 calls or interviews. I can watch the news.

Thank you for this wonderful Podcast Nancy. I’ve enjoyed listening to each episode.

…and very professional. I binge listened and found the reporting both intriguing and respectful. Excellent reporting. Thank you.
Nottooscaryforme via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/25/21
This is a wonderful podcast. Miss Hixts empathy for the victims and their families is profound. She is a great crime reporter/researcher and it shows in every episode. Well done!
C-Canada via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/22/21
This is truly a wonderful podcast focused on Canadian true crime (specifically, Calgary). Nancy has very traditional reporter’s intonation, rather than a more casual podcasting voice, but I don’t mind it in the context of her superb investigative work and interviewing. You can tell she is very...Read full review »
