Used to love the show, used to look forward to the next episode. Scott was getting annoying after a while, Matthew doesn't seem to add much, but my final straw was when they stopped using the term "away game". It was what you called it right from the start, using some Canadian...Read full review »

I love how you add your own commentary and phrases when describing certain people, for example “douche bag”, “he’s just a dick”, etc. I laughed out loud today when I heard Matthew say “tits up” as well. Thanks again for an amazing podcast! You guys are great.

Co host butts in with zero informative information, often whispers so quietly it’s become annoying. Sorry Dark Poutine, I used to love this cast…

I stopped listening when you used the word “racism,” a modern lib term that means nothing, twice. Unfollow

This isn’t the Mathew show. Please Mike, if you insist on keeping Mathew, keep it to 2 comments, no more than 30 seconds each. With his rambling, he interrupts the good story telling you used to have. We’re already aware that Mathew (thinks he) knows everything, has been everywhere, and has an...Read full review »

Edit 2: I listen to the January 20, 2018 show and it was extremely moving and sadly, relatable. I wish you were here or I was there to give each other a great big hug. Edit: I went to the Canada airport on the way to Malta, and I ordered poutine and it was pretty good although different but...Read full review »

I ADORE this show. I’ve been listening for 5 years now and figured it’s about time to leave a review. It’s my favorite true crime podcast. I look forward to Monday mornings at work because I get to listen to “my guys” Mike and Matthew. Not only is it well researched, the presentation is always...Read full review »

Engaging and funny hosts that present true crime in a way that truly respects the victims. Well Done!
K Willms via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/12/24
Just the absolute worst. Boring. Pedantic. Cringe.
Opera wiz via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/05/24
I enjoyed the show to start but don’t care for the blabbering on of the new cohost. Half the show is just shout outs to supporters and just got skipped anyway. It also just turned into ghost stories that I don’t care for and once I started skipping entire episodes I stopped listening altogether.

I am so happy to of found such a great pod cast . The content is so interesting and thoughtful of the victims and everyone else even me the listener . Thanks Rich Grant Carbon Dale Alberta (former Burnabyite). Mike and Mat you are doing a great job of telling all the stories , I am not a good...Read full review »

But………Mathew has made me stop listening. His pedantic discussions pointing out obvious knowledge is very tiresome. I wish he would realize the audience isn’t that ignorant…we don’t need so much historical explanation. If there are millennial or gen z people who don’t understand something, they...Read full review »

Apparently 4 stars… cause… Edmonton Oilers. But seriously, it’s nice to hear stories and the accents from the homeland. Grown in Alberta, living in South Dakota since 2010. Some of these news stories didn’t show up in my feeds. Interesting listening to them when all has settled and not in the...Read full review »

What is the purpose of the second narrator? He seems to add nothing, just talks about himself and makes random disruptive and non-contributory comments. Lose the kling-on, and this show would be 4 stars.
Jaseki via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/08/24
As a Canadian living in New York City, I love hearing these stories of home and learning Canadian history from people who have a healthy amount of skepticism around the colonial lens traditionally taught in the school system. Thoughtful, caring and humorous. What else can a true crime loving gal...Read full review »

I love the mix of narrative with just the right amount of commentary. The intro song is THE BEST, I usually rewind and listen a few times lol
canadian_girl via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/16/23
Host is awesome but the new guy is annoying and does not add anything to the podcast. In fact, he takes away from it but gotta virtue signal 👌 slows down the show badly
adam198585 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/28/23
I learnt so much about Vacuums and Canadian true crime
Keeterism via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/19/23
My favourite podcast. Monday mornings are better knowing a new episode is available to listen to. Mike and Matthew are excellent hosts. They respectfully tell the story with care and thoughtfulness. It’s hard to imagine being offended by this podcast, says a lot about those people and not about...Read full review »

I love this true crime podcast. I appreciate the research michael puts into it and I actually super fell in love with Matthew’s calming voice and all the little tiny info bits he adds about art or something super historical…I have been listening for years and I appreciate you both and this...Read full review »
Yay Buddy5 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/10/23
Not only do we hear about Canadian crime, we also hear lessons in Canadian history such as the Halifax explosion, the Burning of Montreal and Canada’s true role in the rescue of the US hostages in Iran. Mike and Mathew bring compassion, kindness, respect and levity so some very dark stories. ...Read full review »

The content can be ok but the times it gets overtly political and preachy take me out of it.
Blake'ss via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/23
These two are so uneducated in how an investigation works. The Port Moody podcast was awful and the Wakanayashi also terrible. They really are two schmucks trying to talk about true crime. Time listening to these clowns is time you’ll never get back. Awful
lk5555555552 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/11/23
Used to love your show u till the past year when you have gone completely woke. I get talking about controversial issues but wow I’m shocked how you can be so negative towards your own demographic. Putting down one demographic to lift another is also discriminatory!!!!
norrhern loggers via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/05/23
I’ve listened to this show for years and enjoy Mike’s storytelling. They’ve covered an incredible amount of stories from Canada and have covered a few cases from outside the nation. Love how they embrace being Canadian as well as the care given to not glorify the crimes and the perpetrators....Read full review »

After listening to 3 or 4 whole podcast about true crime and dark history about mostly Quebec, it just made sense to start this podcast! I’ve started a month ago from the begining of this podcast and now I’m on episode 89 and I really love it! Great job you guys🫶🏻
bea_allard via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/09/23
I can only hear how racist white people are, so much. Does anything else cross your minds. I’m out!
dshanesq via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/23
Being Canadian I really love that you guys do mostly Canadian stories. Very well put together and I love how your commentary breaks up the stories. I also LOVE how you respect the victims. It’s a rare thing. I’ve listened to EVERY SINGLE episode you’ve put out. I’ve been listening for a couple...Read full review »

What’s with the side stories and long rambles by the cohost ….seems jumbled up ! Also in the Ardeth.Woods episode .. The host states that”certain sunglasses make you a racist “ What a dumb comment !! go woke and political and your podcast will wither away .
kikidreamer via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/01/23
Some of the stories are interesting but the overuse of puns and alliteration are distracting and often a stretch at even being relevant to the story. Reminds me of the writing on some true crime shows from the 90s. There’s much better true crime out there.
vanisle4 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/31/23
You guys sound really knowledgeable & respectful too. This was a podcast i thought I’d never enjoy, but it just opens more areas around our country. How there’s freaks everywhere!!! It makes me feel scared & paranoid but then glad that some/ most are captured. It also lets us see how it...Read full review »

Great podcast guys. Really enjoying it! I judge a podcast in the first 15 seconds as Im tuned to the voices for listening quality, cadence and pace. You quys have all three down right frm your first show. Well done👏👏👏 Marina Bedard Peterborough Ontario.

This is one of the best podcasts out there.. I’ve been listening to it since the beginning. Love the hosts Mike and Matt! Also if you haven’t bought the book Mike wrote you need too.. it’s great. Can’t wait till he writes another book!!
SamVanIsland via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/17/23
I just found your show and I absolutely love it! I get excited to listen to every episode that comes out !

Such a quack
catnessevergreen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/23
Oh man I used to love this one, it got me hooked from the first episode. I understand the reasons behind Scott’s departure, so, fine. But Mathew adds nothing to the show, he’s pompous and arrogant and always wants to talk about himself. Even Mike who used to be engaging now sounds so monotone and...Read full review »

I just started listening after my boyfriend bought me Mike’s book, and I’m hooked. I love the Canadian content, I love the honesty and banter, and I love hearing stories that I haven’t heard from a million other podcasts. I wish I found this podcast sooner but I’m happy to have 5 years to...Read full review »
mandybeeeeeee via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/10/23
Loved the first few episodes, but it’s gotten overly political. The show has become more woke virtue signalling, and less true crime.
YVRChB via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/06/23
This was my first taste of true crime podcast way back at the beginning. I was a huge fan. Lately I started getting way too much politically woke opinions and it’s really put a negative cloud over the whole dark poutine experience. I can’t say I’m loving what the new co host is bringing and it’s...Read full review »
everynicknameistaken!?! via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/27/23
The babble at the start trying to make people feel bad about being born White. Kind of figured the hosts would do that by just reading the episode name.
Tyrone_gg via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/22/23
I’ve started from Episode 1! And I’m up to about 50! I listen to this everyday at work. And man alive does it ever make a shift fly! Keep on cooking up that Dark Poutine!
SVanDerVoort via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/12/23
It is interesting to hear stories from Canada, and eerie when the stories are close to home. Look forward to the new episode always.
Emziies via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/11/23
Great storytelling skills and humor that is appropriate for the content.
bhytesfan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/23
Treating your buddy of the year, month, week, etc. with some respect??? Not like a pet? It’s always about you. Plenty of pods with one narrator.
