This podcast is so well done!!! Incredibly interesting and told in a compassionate and thoughtful way by David Ridgen. I could listen to him all day & I’ve done just that. I want to go on a David Ridgen journey everyday (especially in lockdown). Thank you for this wonderful work. An absolute...Read full review »

David is an incredible podcaster and investigative journalist. Not only does he show his passion for his cases through his incredible story telling, but in the way he treats the victims and their families. It is clear that David is devoted to his work, and he is persistent to get to the truth.

Just fabulous. Thank you David for all that you do. Keep them coming.
Kml646 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
Taped interviews and David’s warm and evocative story-telling allow the listener to “get to know” the characters and visualize the various locations snd scenes. It’s easy to lose yourself in the mysteries. I’ve binge-listened to one season at a time...road trips, home projects, long...Read full review »

This podcast is amazing. David, you are really great at your job and your podcast is so good. I just have to say that Trevor Brown sounds like THE nicest guy. I loved listening to him talk, sing and talk to ravens. I hope the Browns can find closure soon, and I’m so glad you decided to help them...Read full review »

David is an amazing journalist. The stories he covers are interesting and keep me coming back for more. Although, I think I'd listen to any podcast hosted by David. He's great at investigating and following every possible avenue and I think what's really captivating is how genuine he...Read full review »

David’s insight and personal commentary on each case he covers is part of what makes this show work so well. Haven’t been able to find anything in this genre that has the same feel. Great depth of reporting.

I have listened to A LOT of true crime podcasts. SKS is by far my favourite. So well done. I absolutely love how open minded David is. He goes with the evidence regardless of where it takes him. Leaves no table unturned. He asks the difficult questions and holds people accountable. I hope this...Read full review »

I measure all other crime themed podcasts to this one. SKS is the best there is. Can’t get enough of David Ridgen. His style, his compassion and his connection to these stories gives me hope for journalism. You could give the course on this Dave! Congratulations on a job well done!

I love true crime podcasts and the content, pace and empathy from the host has made this easily one of my favourites. Only on season 4 and absolutely would recommend!!

Wow
David is mesmerizing in a good way! I needed a great podcast with a voice I can tolerate. I found it! Thanks for all your do, David.
TeeTee218 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/21
I discovered this podcast by listening to an interview that Bob Ruff did with David Ridgen on the Truth & Justice podcast. This is the best true crime podcast I have ever listened to and there have been a lot. I love the “real time” interviews. This podcast is truly engaging. My only bad...Read full review »

The cases are interesting and extremely well researched, but what I am most impressed with is the narrator and writing. Beautiful, economical, and perfectly evocative.
elisego via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/30/20
Brings me to tears every time.
annawxyz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/20
The effort David takes is appreciated. It’s more facts that are first hand rather than reading from an investigation report. Good to hear all sides of the story.
Jay@88 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/28/20
David is so kind and thoughtful when he interviews the families. His voice is silky smooth. He’s the only Canadian who’s accent I forgive. Can’t get enough.
bornofcanadianparents via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/20
I’m not particularly drawn to the cases themselves, and it can be slow to develop, but I will listen to anything Ridgen does. He is brilliant and genuine. He is able to gain the trust of the families which allows them to open up and show a side that we would never know otherwise. Their pain is so...Read full review »
leslie_will via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/19/20
This is my absolute favorite true crime podcast. I love David’s style of interviewing and his ability to connect with others. I appreciate the follow ups! We need more episodes soon! Can’t get enough.
Mrs. Trick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/20
This was the second podcast I found and years later I am still listening. I love David’s voice and the way the story is told. If you are looking for a deep dive into a story this is the podcast for you.

David Ridge is an amazing story teller. Can’t wait to listen to more of his work.

Everything about Season 5 was fantastic! PERFECTION=Sound,Clariry,Detail,Length of Episodes, Length of Season, Lack of Ads, Storytelling, Pace.

It’s hard to find crime podcasts that actually do investigations rather than just rehashing other’s work. This podcast does this extremely well. David Ridgen feels like a really good journalist. He asks good questions and seems to form connections with and have empathy for victim’s family...Read full review »

I’ve never been so grounded in a podcast before. It’s real, it’s tragic, and it makes you really appreciate everyone and everything in your life. David is an amazing journalist and the way he tells people’s stories is amazing.
BloodClaw199 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/29/20
Thanks Trevor and Jim for sharing your story.
Winning Adventurers via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/26/20
I listened to season 5 and I’m hooked. I’m trying to listen to season 4. How can I do that? Thanks.

Please keep making new episodes
jas1000 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/19/20
This podcast is so well done. David really pulls you into the events with the descriptions he provides and the interviews. The fact that David is dedicated to finding the truth plays out during the interviews, in the special way he communicates. Keep up the great work.
Cold Case Buff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/20
This will sound so strange but the worst thing about this podcast is the sponsor. The sponsor is Candy Crush - and every few minutes during a somber story about murder, this high pitched girly voice comes on yelling about Candy Crush. It’s so jarring. Literally I went from a sentence about a...Read full review »

David’s ability to weave investigative reporting into a human story makes these podcasts worth the listen. Enjoy every season.

Love SKS! Storytelling is unbelievably well done. You feel like you are standing in the middle of every scene as it’s happening. Every season is great, but my faves are S1 & S5.
Huglife via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/09/20
Amazing! Iv binged listened to every series I love the fact David doesn’t just talk about the case for one hour and that’s it, he takes you on a journey investigating each lead really enjoying it looking forward to more
sarah_lou_r13 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/08/20
David is an exceptional investigative reporter and he relates so very well to people ... compassionate and thoughtful. Great podcast!
MissB@OS via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/07/20
The way he tells the story, the scene set up Even how in the background of some of the series you can hear surgery on his navigation it’s all part of imagining this storyline and feeling like you were a part of some thing that you weren’t incredible

David has a gift for writing, telling and sharing stories. These stories are a heartbreaking journey but told with empathy and respect towards the victims and their families. I find myself captivated and somewhat trying desperately to solve these mysteries along with him.
Jane Fan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/05/20
Exceptional investigating. Emotionally riveting! You cannot help but walk in the footsteps of the past. The stories of injustices, the glimpses into the lives touched by these unspeakable crimes gives rise to memories of when I grew up. Things that happened around me but never forgotten.

Outstanding in every possibble way.

David is soooo good with all types of people he interviews ! He can adapt to any situation and environment. The phone call that was never listened to or for some reason covered up leaves me suspicious of the RCMP or should I say that group that investigated the crime . Top officials should come...Read full review »

Great podcast - David is fantastic. Seasons 1 & 2 were good, but I found Season 3 to be absolutely exceptional. Can’t wait to keep listening!
