It's hard to stand out with so many other true crime podcasts, but for me this one does. I know the host isn't everyone's cup of tea but personally I rather like his style, he's a compelling and unique narrator and these podcasts are very well put together. Quite often you get to...Read full review »

I’ve listened to this podcast for a few years now am the episodes are great but over time the ads are getting to much and some of the remarks/jokes are just unnecessary.

I like the host and his funny quips. If you don’t want to be entertained by a host find a new podcast, please keep up the commentary!!

I stumbled across Sword and Scale Nightmares a month or so ago and was so sad when I plowed through all of the episodes really quickly. I was poking around the other day, looking for more true crime pods and Sword and Scale. I am so happy to have more episodes. Mike is exactly my speed in terms...Read full review »

I love the host's voice and style. He makes this the best podcast in the True Crime genre. This show is miles ahead of all the others in every area. Killer audio, all around quality, and incredible content. The best around!Read full review »

Awesome true-crime podcast, authentic and genuine. Could also listen to Mike read anything. Give the man a sleep story!

So many true crime podcasts recycle the same stories and are as enjoyable as the annual visit to the gynecologist. This podcast keeps your attention the host has a certain charm that not everyone will enjoy but I sure do. The true crime stories are well researched and always keeps the focus on...Read full review »

The host is insufferable, a big man baby. Constantly crying about his listeners. Hey Mike, I like the stories but I wish you weren’t in the show. You start every episode passive aggressively complaining about people.

I wish i could see a picture of every clown giving it a 1 star review. Im sure they all look exactly like i think they do. Grow up people and stop dying your hair purple.

This channel was Recommend to me by a friend and I'm so happy she did! I love that there is no small talk and includes actual audio from witnesses and news coverage. Very informative in all the ways. Host has a nice speaking voice. The ONLY negative I get from it is the dramatic pauses the...Read full review »

I really like this podcast and have told friends about it, they like it too but we all agree that the subscription cost is too much.

Thank you for the time and research, Don’t listen to the rude comments about the show it’s great. People are just picky.
rotten bananas via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/04/24
Been listening to sword and scale since 2018, found this podcast on my own and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. The host cares about victims and shares their stories bc they deserve to be told. Ignore those clowns giving poor reviews, try listening and judge for yourself.
LB17389 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/24
A flawless and unique take on cases that captures the essence of the villians in the most dead on and sometimes hilarious fashion. His commentary kills me, and pretty much takes the words right out of my mouth. Perfect combo of storytelling, setting the stage, digging into the details and does...Read full review »

Raw
I like how uncensored this podcast is and the real recordings. The host can be abrasive at times but he has a mellow voice. Rock on
BIGWillyyWonka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/24
Wow
I finished all the episodes including the plus episodes I’m quite sad now I’m bored I have to wait they are so good if you listen to mikes voice from the beginning and as he goes through you can here a very distinct change in his tone he talks about the worst people in the world and all people...Read full review »

I’m not sure this man understands (or cares) what is inappropriate to come out of ones mouth. Today I listened to the harrowing case about Jessica Lynne Reale and her sister (Ep 259). Her sister is murdered, dismembered and burned in this episode, and Mike Boudet sees this horrific happening as...Read full review »

Have listened on and off for a while. Just unsubscribed. Tired of hearing a middle aged white man rant about things like believing women…

Effin HOT! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/24
Love this Podcast! The best storyteller out there. Not a fan of the Biden ad I just heard on today’s episode though.
Solon 2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/24
I love that his podcast doesn’t have a co-host. Other shows with a co-host, there’s too much banter and opinions and takes away from the story and the facts. I also really appreciate that a lot of the show is made up of real audio in relation to the case being covered. I’ve listened to almost all...Read full review »

I don't usually write reviews. But this is a really great Podcast. Some of my other favorites are Snap Judgment and Risk. If you like those you'll love this one. Still listening years laterRead full review »

Love hearing the stories but at the same time I cannot stand listening to the host. His opinions and his presentation are not the greatest.
Sherripohlman5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/24
I used to listen to this show religiously years ago before Boudet became a right wing hack spewing tired talking points like he’s true crime’s Alex Jones. I haven’t listened in ages, but decided to give it a try just to see if anything had changed. He talked about a little girl’s burning body and...Read full review »

Literally the best, worth every cent for all the extra content. Keep doing what you’re doing Mike

I have been with this show since 2014. I have been a plus member since then. I love everything about this series but recently my credit card was compromised and I wasn’t sure which card I was using to pay for my subscription and I didn’t receive any emails telling me that my payment didn’t go...Read full review »
smoccia10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/24
The 911 calls and interviews make my skin crawl and every episode feels like a living nightmare. I love it and want to listen to every episode. My only critique as a new listener is that the host does not discuss people who have mental illness(es) with care. It seems like he’s trying to make it a...Read full review »

I have an idea.. shhh on the app until it eventuates. Cos, we don’t care until it like, works & stuff. Cool!

I listen to so many crime pods. You are 100% my all time favourite!
sofie robo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/08/24
He’s great but I wish he would clean up his language.
Shananogin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/24
Simply THE BEST. keep on going Mike.
Ellengiov via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/24
I look forward to new drops like I do the weekend. Love the stories, delivery, narration, interviews, the suspense…just a tremendous true crime pod. Not sure what the low ratings are about but this is indeed an upper tier production.
WestCoastaNostra619 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/24
Some of your commentary is unnecessary. Talking about your favorite grill when referencing someone’s body being burned.
Mabelt89 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/24
Good show. I’ve been listening for years. That said, it has become about 1/2 child abuse cases. I have little kids and don’t want to listen to someone describe a child being in tortured. Those crimes exist obviously. I just don’t listen to those episodes, but. They are becoming more and more.
Drew VIII via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/24
Episode 259: “…as Barbara’s often do” - SERIOUSLY? Do you ever think before you open your mouth, Mike? Man. You can be rolling along perfectly well with your monologues and then the stupidest s%!+ can come out of your mouth. You can have the listener right where you want them - deeply into...Read full review »

Your the best podcast.. but tramadol is not comparable to oxy and morphine. It’s literally prescribed as a muscle relaxer And literally the absolute lowest in the scale of pain meds.
salmon Salmon! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/24
Been listening almost 4 years now and my mom put me on. I’ve loved this podcast since I started listening. Please continue as long as you can. 🩷 If you don’t like ads, pay to listen without them just like every other streaming platform and podcast. Nothing new here. Don’t single this podcast out...Read full review »

I won’t pay for ‘subscriber’ episodes! I pay more than enough. Bring on the library and more audio books
mamakatt11 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/02/24
Every episode requires a subscription to listen which is odd I would want free ones to get people hooked. Anyway I took advantage of the 3 days free and I’m going to listen to some episodes during that time to see if I like it. If not I’ll just cancel the subscription before being charged. I’ll...Read full review »

Great podcast. Lots of researched info and well edited. The host has a great voice too. I look forward to every episode.
Gatacinco via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/29/24
Did he go through an unpleasant divorce or something? Get busted for something and had his custody amended? He’s gotten bitter as heck and, frankly, no one cares about your personal problems bro.
Mushi67 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/24
Only just started listening to true crime and heard about this one from the Osbournes Podcast and I have to say it’s awesome!

A really great one, Mike. Well executed: 5 ⭐️’s for originality, length, interviews with key players closely involved with Jessica’s case. VERY engaging.

Not as good as it used to be..not at all. Stop interjecting, it’s tiresome. No one wants to hear your racist opinions - just tell the story and keep your opinions to yourself.
Boujie88 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/26/24
Hands down the best true crime podcast out there.
cindibeth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/24
This guy is sus and overly political and misogynistic. The podcast has over 18 minutes of ads and intros. I have to skip every ten minutes because the ads are copied and I hear the same thing in the span of two minutes literally starts off with adds one min later adds Introduces you to the story...Read full review »

The most in depth true crime podcast; actual court room audio, more details than usual. Love Mike’s sarcasm and wit!
