Not sure why I STARTED with Season 5 but by episode 2, I was hooked! Love hearing the first-hand accounts of everyone affected by this horrific, senseless tragedy. I hope this ends with someone being held accountable! I’m impressed with what David has done to get the attention this case...

Don’t get me wrong, David Ridgen has incredible empathy and his journalistic instincts are spot-on: the podcast is riveting, touching, humane. But its premise is flawed: so far, no one appears to actually know anything that could help solve the cold cases. So if you’re looking for some kind of...

David has such a respectful and warm manner in dealing with people who have faced deep loss. Enthralling listening.

I love how thorough your investigations are. Your very fascinating and I love your detail that you provide in your show so you can imagine it to great detail as your listening. Fantastic podcast!

Listening to numerous podcasts through the day, I would say David is by far the best host I have heard. David is an amazing story teller. He is gracious and deeply kind hearted in his journalism and interviews. His stories pulls listeners into the story with his ability to set a scene in an...

I am super surprised by the negative reviews saying host/narrator David Ridgin is pretentious or self-absorbed - I think this is the most respectful cold case whodunnit podcast I’ve heard. I deeply appreciate the way David works with the family members of the victims in such an inclusive and...

The host wonders at the beginning of season 1 whether or not doing this story is an act of exploitation or an act of compassion. It’s an act of exploitation when you have no content for an episode and decide to have a sketch artist draw the missing boy aged up, and show that to the family and...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the way this podcast researches cases, interviews people, describes the environment of the case, and engulfs my heart every season. Beautiful journalism at its best!

David Ridgen is a fantastic investigative journalist and leaves you on the edge of your seat in every episode!! I take the long way home from work just so I can listen longer! :)

I really love this show because it is seriously built and does not forget any king of aspect to the subject. I must say that I fell for the social side as it is not presented as engaged but factual. Thank you David.

Hope for the victims, empathy for the families and anger regarding police incompetence makes these unsolved crimes riveting to hear. David approaches it with compassionate and fearlessness always asking the correct questions. My heart hurts for these families. They deserve to know the truth....

Insanely good! Not only is it great content, but David is actually making a difference out there.
MaijaN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/18
I think I’ve listened to just about every true crime or mystery podcast out there and this has to be one of the best, hands down. I love the storytelling, the research, the compassion for those involved and the way it’s all presented is incredibly interesting and suspenseful. Even as I’m...

The first series involves a young boy and although not everyone likes to hear podcasts that involve children, there is not a lot of gory detail involved. That’s the beauty of this one is that it’s concentrating on the notion that someone does actually know something! Interviewing people, digging...

David does an awesome job with telling the stories of the victims as well as investigating and bringing skeletons to light! Bravo!
Stljeepgrl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/18
This is truly one of my favorite podcasts, thankfully I found it on my iPhone, I listen at work through my computer, SKS isn’t on iHeart. I’ve searched! So I have to listen through my phone. Weird, or am I missing it somewhere?
lovethepods via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/18
I started listening to this podcast on a long drive and it kept me so intrigued throughout. I have listened to all of season 5 and can’t wait to listen to the rest. You do amazing work David. I would love to see a documentary made. You have a new fan of this podcast.
Buda21$$ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/18
This podcast is so professional, thorough, and captures the drama and the intensity of each story. David really knows how to put these difficult stories out there for us to hear about with sympathy and detail, even if at times his dramatic affect can be a bit too much sometimes IMO. He has a...
DanaMayhem via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/18
Although, like every other cold case podcast with DNA, I was whispering “gedmatch” under my breathe throughout season 5 (it will be solved, unless Canada has some laws I don’t know about or the DNA has been mishandled etc.) this podcast is truly top notch. Art in the true crime genre, only s-town...
22Benjo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/18
I never leave reviews but this is great. Many crime podcasts focus on the hard facts and that’s ok, but I appreciate the sincerity with which David approaches things. He takes events that seem faraway to most of us and makes them human, giving life to each name and place. In this way, he is able...

This podcast is well researched and fairly presented. It’s obvious that David is invested in these cases, and that passion tempered with journalistic caution make for a compelling narrative.
JawnJam via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/29/18
True crime podcasts are my favorite , but David Ridgen has truly raised the bar with “Someone Know Something.” He’s able to weave direct-smart investigative work with genuine respect and heartfelt concern to create stories that draw you in—that make you crave justice for the victims. Though his...

David, you do an amazing job of drawing us in to these stories. I love how neutral you stay, and how brave you are in your interviews. Thank you for doing this for these families, so hopefully one day they can gain closure.

This podcast is easily on par with up and vanished and the other greats.
Trent445577 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/18
It makes me uncomfortable but I can't stop listening
AngieL71 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/29/18
Love his stories , hypnotic voice
shant70 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/28/18
This is hands down the best podcast series I have ever listened to. I can’t get enough and the end of every episode keeps me hanging on to see what is going to happen next. The narration is wonderful story telling.
Suziferguson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/18
I have never written a review for anything before. The reason I wanted to now is because of some of the ways other listeners have categorized this podcast and it’s narrator. I thoroughly enjoy the slight description of circumstance. Wether it be while driving through town with description of the...
EzraKnockemstiff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/18
It’s a very thoughtful and well produced podcast. Whenever a season ends, I search for something similar, but so far nothing matches the quality of David and his series!
Eadochs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/18
The fact that I have decided to write a review is testament to the quality of this podcast. Thanks to the entire team for this elegant production. Having just discovered it, I am binging at the moment, but I look forward to a long and satisfying time following the future programs. With so many...
cass-@ndra via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/26/18
Hi Dave. I’ve been listening to all seasons now. You do such a great job. Such a great story teller and I like the production style too. Keep up the great work.
Ecrab365 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/18
I enjoyed all of the seasons of this show, even though the likes of Payne Lindsey kinda stole the thunder, but something in this current season has become beautiful. The story is immersive and the journalism is careful, kind and balanced. The care taken in the story structure, the production...
Mason Rodrickc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/18
Great podcast. I listen to many and unsubscribe the trash. This podcast has the goal of actually helping the victims and their family and friends find answers. Unlike so many true crime podcasts that have no purpose other than glamorizing the killers and the hosts trying to be comedians.
RavenNation1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/18
Good story but the narrator goes on and on with useless verbiage. Let’s hear from the friends, police, loved ones of the victims versus the narrator. I listened to 4 of the episodes and then stopped. It was boring. Again, very poignant story just told in a poor manner. Very disappointed in the...
Kcdjcd2000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/18
I love this podcast. I sneak out to my car for lunch to listen and my commute is finally bearable thanks to SKS! Thank you David Ridgen & Co. for your compassionate work in helping people find closure and answers in these cold cases. I am always completely riveted and in suspense while listening...
Funutmom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/18
My husband and I just finished listening to Season 5, 10 episodes about the Kerrie Brown murder in Thomson Manitoba. The unsolved murder stories David investigates are very interesting. We truly enjoyed listening to the episodes. We highly recommend the podcast Someone Knows Something to everyone .
Bambi1273636 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/23/18
Please tell me the name of the ambient song that plays randomly through season 5. It’s somber and heartbreaking. Brought tears to my eyes every time I heart it.
ANakedLady via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/23/18
I legit never leave post like this but I have never wanted the last few minutes of a podcast to end so fast. That horrific song you have with that awful singing. Come on. I’ve heard some lame music but this is just horrible. Amazing podcast but god awful ending music
Charlie Henning via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/18
David reports with respect and is very kind and professional to all he interviews. While there may be no outcome in the podcasts it makes you think how corrupt and unprofessional the police/investigation was at the time as clearly there was evidence that leads to people and where there are people...
My3stars via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/22/18
I am a big fan of Sword and Scale and find this to be the perfect counterpoint. David and his crew are trying to do some good in the world rather than just gawking. It's about murder but it's also built on the fundamental goodness of people and I find myself getting attached to some of the...
Messica via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/18
Slow-burn but utterly engaging. David Ridgen is an amazing story-telling. There is something here you don’t always get with true crime - the human experience and the aftermath of tragedy.
Yaz Sabs via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/22/18
Can’t wait for more episodes!! Definitely my favourite podcast I’ve listened to so far!!!
Sneekykeeks via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/22/18
Without question this is my favourite podcast. I look forward to Monday’s because there will be a new episode available.
ShanCBCfan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/21/18
This extraordinarily depressing podcast should be called no one knows anything. They give false hope to broken, grieving families, under pretense that they actually care. They way they corner a homeless, suicidal, mentally ill man in season 5 is irresponsible and disgraceful. My stomach turns...
lamptablechair via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/21/18
The stories are amazing and the research and background work are incredible. Unfortunately for me, David’s delivery is like fingernails on a chalkboard. Multiple, overstated pauses in nearly every sentence render the episodes nearly unlistenable. His voice in the storytelling/narration sections...
CaveMama via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/21/18
It’s very binge worthy!!
Mickeylovecupcakes22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/18
This podcast is amazing. I love what David and the CBC are doing for unsolved cases.
Loradel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/18
MY FAVORITE I CANT WAIT FOR MORE! I don't always have time to sit and read... I have enjoyed listening to this series while folding laundry, doing dishes, etc. Very interesting! Thank You Dave
Christy615 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/18
I was advised to listen to season 1 and became hooked . Between seasons of SKS, I listened to a plethora of other true crime podcasts. Somebody Knows Something stands out as the most carefully constructed , in depth , compassionate podcast of the many crime podcasts now online . Thank you to...
