I love this podcast!!!! Erica rocks! Update- I still love this podcast but there’s no rhyme or reason as to when she drops episodes and there’s always some lame excuse why she hasn’t. It’s annoying. Update to the update- over a month and no new episode or explanation why…

When it comes to guilt and innocence in true crime stories I pretty much always have my mind made up. However, Erica’s research and following narrative has made me think, stop and consider, and occasionally left me wondering what was the right thing to see that justice was realized. So thanks!...Read full review »

I used to love this podcast, but the ads have taken over! It feels like more ads than actual story. I listen to a lot of podcast and this one by far has the most ads.

Insane amount of ads with the podcast.
Jaksekmcginn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/24
I love this podcast! I grew up in Nashville and enjoy Southern crime and history. Erica thoroughly researches each podcast and has the gift of weaving the story together in a coherent matter. In other words, her shows are easy to follow, even the complicated crime stories. My only negative...Read full review »

I really don’t understand the high reviews for this podcast. She somehow manages to take really interesting cases and make them extremely boring with here monotone voice. I’m just going to assume the reviewers haven’t listened to good podcasts.

I’m southern to the core and LOVE this podcast! Anxiously await every new story!
Tisaan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/24
Stories are well researched & written. I just want to here the story in an objective way! I don’t want to hear the podcaster’s views, feelings, religion, or politics thrown into the story. I usually listen to this podcast for a couple of months at a time. Then I can’t take it anymore, and I...Read full review »

This is such a disappointing review to leave, because the quality of the content and the story telling is really good. But the number and length of ad breaks is wild and very obtrusive. Would be an easy five stars without the excessive ads.

I love the brutal honesty. They obviously do very in-depth investigations. I love hearing all sides.

Just listened to the Denise Lee episode , what a brave , brave woman !! I cried my heart out over this episode , bless her heart , may she rest in peace 🙏

If I have insomnia, these episode are guaranteed to lull me to sleep. I love her wit, and insight as well.
horibondi via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/09/24
This is best true crime podcast out there!!!
deforestchezz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/24
I was hooked after a few minutes. Erica Kelley has possibly the most wonderful voice of any female podcaster to come out of the country, with not a trace of that current, lazy “vocal-fry” scourge that seems to have gripped so many others. Exceptionally well-researched content, her delicious...Read full review »

I wish I could discover this podcast all over again. The structure of the episodes is great, the story is thorough, well-researched, and Erica is insightful and sensitive. So good!
Dabs dog via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/24
I enjoy the variety of stories told on the podcast, but I do think more diligence would be prudent in the research of the towns involved. I know for a fact there have been instances where the geographical descriptions of locations were wholly incorrect, and some historical facts about the time...Read full review »

I love this podcast but I can’t deal with all the commercials. No other podcaster has this many. I’m not alway near my phone to skip them. Way too many
lucianokmn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/24
The stories are good. And the narrator’s voice is pleasant but she reads the script with little emotion. Like a robot. She shows more emotion reading the credits.
Stupidbaboon1245 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/24
I keep trying but just can’t find a podcast as good as this one! Very detail oriented but also insightful and sympathetic. True crime at its best
Sure hen soo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/17/24
I still love this podcast so much that I don’t mind skipping the ads that come up after every 3-5 spoken words.
Babybluestx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/24
I am from Arkansas and it’s not often that I hear a podcast covering a case from my state. I love the south and I am familiar with the unique crimes prevalent here. I love Southern Fried True Crime. Erica’s accent paired with her first hand knowledge of the south is the cherry on top of her...Read full review »

210
I’ve been a long-time listener and I feel episode 210 is probably some Erica Kelly’s best work, second behind The Ballad of Zack and Addie. *chefs kiss and mad respect*
Leanne in Chippewa Falls via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/24
The episodes of this podcast always seem thoroughly researched and fairly presented. The narrator is one of my favorites. She speaks at a pace that is measured without being stilted, and is easy to understand.
RobinChicago via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/24
I’m always looking forward for your show. Listen to it as soon it’s available Thank you very much Las Moras The berries
Le Pew el Pepé via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/24
This is actually my first ever podcast, yes I know I am behind the times! Lol Southern Fried did not disappoint! Erica has a great listening voice! I love her take on the episodes and her honesty and wittiness! I also appreciate the way she gives as much honor and respect to the victims and their...Read full review »

Love this podcast! My new favourite show!
Zozozo05 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/28/24
Stoppp with the black crime!! Black crime is so common that it’s not even interesting. You’re white, Erica. Stick with your own race and let the blacks cover their own cases.

911
I love this podcast, it’s well researched &amp; the accent &amp; narration easy to listen to. Unfortunately a couple of episodes include distressing 911 calls which I think are unnecessary to add.
carrieboosh via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/25/24
This is a fantastic podcast, but I find myself turning it off during commercial breaks. Is there any way to enjoy it ad free?
Grac€ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/24
Well-researched! Thank you for finding these cases, particularly in the American South. I had never heard of the Dixie Mafia before.
Hallowen or Bust via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/24
I’m happy that I listened to the most recent podcasts first. Listening to the early ones and the phony white privilege installed in the episodes was ridiculous. Finally on track and presenting facts and not phony ideology.
Hunter-187 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/24
Erica Kelly, I would just like to share with you how much I am enjoying your southern fried true crime podcast. I found you by listening to Crime Junkie and The Deck. Which is a blessing because I needed some new binge worthy crime podcast to do for a few days. I love the way you tell your...Read full review »

I had to listen to this speed up to barely put up with it. I had to stop listening. She just get uppity and self righteous and I’ve had my fill of that nowadays.
nwmdist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/24
I love Erica’s voice and the content is always great but the amount of advertising really puts me off.

Just want to correct the military status here. Shadow did not retire from the military, she ETS’d which is End Termination of Service. To retire is 20+ years.
Hawaiin monk seal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/24
It’s absolutely appropriate that the podcast circuit, is at long last, fading away. This one is near the top for cringy, opinionated content, and I swear more ads than actual show. If you insist on listening make sure you have access to FF through because every episode has a minimum of FIVE ad...Read full review »

From reading the reviews I note that there are a lot of Aussie fans - and I’ve joined them! Pods are well researched and interesting in that macabre murdery way, but it’s also the host’s intriguing southern accent that gives the stories such a delicious southern fried feeling! BTW “Aussie” is...Read full review »

I sure do wish there was a pay option, rather than listening to the NUMEROUS, and ever-increasing number of ads. It’s difficult to relax, and enjoy the podcast, then bam…it’s an ad…it’s loud, and even sometimes in Spanish, which I don’t even understand. Please offer some way to NOT hear the ads....Read full review »

Thank you all for your hard work and diligence in having an honest podcast that truly cares about the victims. Erica- love your straightforward personality!
KWH/JAH via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/24
I used to love this podcast. Erica was a true Southerner. I loved her accent, her snarky comments and the stores she told. For the past year I feel like her comments have turned old and mean. Sometimes popularity is not good. Still listening for now but no longer waiting and listening as soon as...Read full review »
Wvupiphi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/24
This was a favorite podcast but the crimes, and especially the victims, have become overshadowed by the narrator’s politics and opinions. It also has an excessive number of ads.
Mindy Moe 1979 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/24
I just discovered this podcast. I love it. Highly recommend to anyone who is a true crime fanatic. I live in the south so southern true crime is fascinating to me and Erica delivers.
UnhappyDesigner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/24
I have listened to your podcasts for a long time, have enjoyed them. I am curious why you added background music. I find it irritating, it adds nothing to the podcast and I think it is distracting and takes away from the podcast. Enjoy the podcasts but not the background music
Suswallace via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/24
Great voice and excellent writing.My only criticism is the song playing in background. Its out of hand. It’s just strange to play it over and over and over under the narration, don’t understand why. I am curious since it adds nothing and is irritating (like Muzak, you can ignore it most of the...Read full review »

Loved your telling of this incident . My father testified on the hair and fiber evidence for the FBI on this case. He was just remembering it and sharing more details.

Excuse me while I gush for a minute, but I’ve got to gush. I’ve listened to many episodes of this podcast over the last year or two and love all of them. This particular episode my 17 yo daughter was in the car with me as I listened. It was her first time hearing the podcast and I could tell she...Read full review »
