Just the right balance of all the key elements - investigation, exposition, drama, and more. Absolute delight to listen to. Barb, please take us on more adventures!

Please please do more!

I love this podcast. utterly laugh out loud hilarious and just kept getting better Under it all though is the reality that real women suffer at the hands of these scammers so it’s great to see “Barb” getting one back. 😁👍

Please do more I absolutely love it , a fantastic laugh
!!M!M via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/21/20
Omg - I want more! Please keep going.... I laughed out loud so much!
Booboisie1144 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/10/20
Kate, please make more, this was soooo funny!
Me2u&u&u via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/10/20
I was interested in the idea, scamming the scammer - but the fake high pitched voice and long boring phone conversations just get boring. The real life stories and context is good but just can’t stand that voice. It started out funny but after a few minutes I was annoyed with both of them!...Read full review »

This is a great idea but the hammy voice ruined for me . It was totally unnecessary.
Richplezo via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/24/19
Outstanding podcast! Had me laughing for 90% of it!!! Please do another!!!
Listener924 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/19
This podcast is genius! The character Barb is so absurdly over the top.
Loud Beeping Noise via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/19
What’s going on with this podcast? I was SO looking forward to some Barb action in her very own podcast! And it was an entire podcast of my favourite Dr Phil episodes! All devoted to scammers! And even better, scamming them back! But there was than the intro episode and then nothing more! I know...Read full review »

I was skeptical but oh my goodness this made me laugh so hard!
rachMhelton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/22/19
Are there more coming???
fjbtjvfu via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/14/19
Yuk
Was so keen on this content. But then the fake voice absolutely killed it. Is it possible to overdose on cringe?
sbourke88 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/13/19
There was no need for the voice or the over the top acting I pushed through it to see if it got better but unfortunately it didn’t. Sorry for the bad feed back
Mancsy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/27/19
Loved it, only downside was that there is only 4 short episodes!
Shezshezshez163728 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/02/19
Wish there were more episodes. This was hilarious & ingenious!
tweet7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/19
The most ridiculous characterisation and fake voice. Unbearable. Could have been great, but the voice and acting are beyond stupid.
frafka via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/25/19
... when I’m listening to this with my headphones on. “F*ck me, Barbara!” “F*ck I love you Kate.” *Hysterical snort laughing* Stop what you’re doing, and listen.

I bet he’s hung like a horse 😉
J W Proud via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/04/19
Based on very sad true real life occurrences but hysterical at the same time! When you start singing Sound of music... brilliant! We want more!
Calivia via Apple Podcasts · United Arab Emirates · 03/18/19
Love the fresh concept of this podcast, as I listen to a lot and they can get kind of repetitive. Waiting impatiently for more......
mummabearoftwoboys via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/15/19
I really enjoyed this podcast and even had a little chuckle at times. I gasped when I heard that hugesy was coming on as the housekeeper. I was really excited to see how that would play out with him playing a lady. My only slight criticism was that barb’s voice came across as very helpless. Now I...Read full review »
Bluepog via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/09/19
Great idea for a podcast but the fake old lady voice irritated me to the point where I can’t listen to it anymore. I don’t understand the need for it, Kate could have just used her normal voice. Unsure if it is an attempt at humour, but I couldn’t bear listening to it anymore.
Del_82 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/24/19
The fake voice is simply ridiculous.
Sooze111155555 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/18/19
Absolutely insulting to the people who have been genuinely ripped off and shared their story. The hideous voice completely detracted from what could have been an interesting story, I couldn’t finish the series.
Podwacky via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/17/19
Brilliant!!! I just binge listened to the whole thing at work and I know my coworkers probably think I've gone nuts due to laughing so hard!! Can't wait for the next episode!Read full review »
askashleyofficial via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/19
At first, I was a bit skeptical. Then, I couldn’t stop laughing. Barb’s housekeeper is my favorite. Haha, laugh out loud funny!!
FlInNola via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/19
Omg I am dying! This podcast is great. I love the over the top character “Barbara” the host is putting on. GET THE SCAMMERS!!!
OllaCat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/19
I loved this! Probably because I do this to all the phone scammers that call me!!!! Different voice, bogus details. The stories we can tell!!! Kate, I can’t believe your voice...hilarious.
Chrissy1805 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/14/19
Really liked the concept, the voice started to get on my nerves a little bit. It would have been good to evolve the concept a little and have had a few scammers on the go.
pearlsandjandals via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/12/19
I’m literally doubled over with laughter each episode. Looking forward to more. Well done Kate- they deserve every bit of torment Barb throws at them!
taryntarzo via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/12/19
*Spoiler alert* The five star reviews and the one star reviews are all correct: this is at times funny and interesting, and at other times cringy and tedious. As a whole, it doesn’t actually work. “Carey”, who appears to have much to learn about wooing women for real or pretend, obviously begins...Read full review »
Ercolee via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/09/19
The interviews are really interesting, being able to hear what the scammer says it’s really interesting but the voice that Kate puts on for Barb is almost done unbearable to listen to and grates on your brain
echom88 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/09/19
Definitely with a listen on your way to work ! Laughed so much through it ! Thanks
Sazzstar via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/08/19
This promised to be a really interesting and funny podcast, but ended up being the exact opposite. The interesting and compelling interviews with women who had been scammed were undermined by an irritating and contrived set up to catch a scammer. Kate's impression of a mature lady falling for...Read full review »

Loving this just binged on discovery. However Barb sounds like she is 85 and probably not up to a hot young lover. More Kate please, More!!!!!!!
KfayR via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/06/19
Can’t wait to hear more.
Sandpan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/19
Interviews with victims are good. Kate’s characters voice grated on me after a while. There is some interesting reading over in the Hall of Shame at 419eater.com which posts stories about scamming the scammer which some of the listeners to this podcast may enjoy.
RichSR71 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/06/19
Excellent podcast and can’t wait to hear more from Kate Langbroek. Always entertaining.
KlieNas via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/05/19
Nup
Started with promise but the fake voice the host puts on was unbearable to listen to. There should have been more focus on the facts about scams and scammers and less of the boring and poorly improved old lady impression.
vrp1 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/05/19
I think the 1 star raters don’t realise this started as comedy skit on Australian radio, the interviews & info on scammers is added on. It can be a bit jarring the 2 opposites of seeing the cruel/ sad side to the funny side but I rather enjoy it!
TamikaJade611 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/05/19
Sounded promising, could not put myself through it!
SadieMaeO via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/03/19
This show is good for a laugh while being incredibly interesting. The whole mystic of “what does an online scammer sound like” has been tapped into and broadcast right to our ears, without a single soul being negatively affected. This is why it’s ok to have a laugh here. Yes the subject matter...Read full review »

My god this is so good hahahaha love it
Adoggghhh via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/31/19
Cringe...I can understand the premise but it was just so awkward and horrible I couldn’t get past the 15 minute mark.
Rinroo via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/30/19
Kate is brilliant. The OTT delivery only emphasises the desperation and deception. The idea of giving these reprehensible people even a little bit of their own medicine is fabulous.
potatoeyes via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/29/19
I liked the idea and the topic, but found the whole thing so cringeworthy and embarrassing I had to stop listening! Just terrible!
