The narrator is too slow. Had to stop listening after 5 min.

Wow
Wildly profound and thought provoking! I quite honest don’t care about the subject matter in this podcast but the moral questions she asks are fantastic and makes you have to reflect. 5/5

Essential global story!

I really enjoyed this. The second part will be interesting. I look forward to it.

A very slow drawling voice with a drawn-out story. Could have done with a rev-up to make it a bit more interesting.

I’m so glad I didn’t waste my time on this as someone said that there was colonialism and patriarchy etc. All the buzz words of those who love to blame others but themselves
Jerry Tromble via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/28/21
Both personal and scrupulous, this podcast on Rhino poaching does the long needed dig into the messy socio politics of the crisis in Southern Africa.
nonkynuts via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/29/21
Powerful story showing another side to rhino poaching and exploring the personal lives of several people involved. Takes one on a truly African adventure too. Georgina showed considerable personal bravery travelling to the remotest parts of Mozambique to hear from those fully involved in the...Read full review »

Such an insightful well made podcast. I learnt so much from both ends of this topic. Who knew that Rhino poaching was such a complex matter. A very well balanced, well researched podcast. I can’t wait for the next chapters. Thank you Georgina Savage and Team for for shedding so much light on not...Read full review »

Such a great balanced documentary
MadelinePrebble via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/27/21
Social injustice is an important subject in our time, community and social setting - there is no denying that! However, I went into this Podcast thinking they are going to explore the very serious issues of a rampant Rhino poaching problem. That was the case until the 2nd half of the series which...Read full review »

The story dives quite deeply into the context surrounding the animals, the park, the country and the people. Great story telling. Beautiful audio as well.

What I thought would be an interesting look at a black market trade turned into a completely fascinating look at colonialism, patriarchy, systemic racism and so much more. It is approached so sensitively and ethically. Love this. Well done!
benshapirolies via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/22/21
Gritty, on the ground insights into animal conservation, colonialism, race and poverty. The first time I’ve ever had to consider the real human factors driving this trade and heard from those involved to understand it from all sides.
Kapie2014 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/18/21
...this is quality work. sophie, georgina, esa, and the tech team have given us something special here. the presentation is balanced and absolutely riveting. research, sound editing, music-it is all here and perfect.
dogscanswim via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/17/21
Finally.. an exploration of the rhino poaching problem that challenges conservationists and global observers to ask themselves the difficult questions. A well-researched, balanced, empathetic approach. The original tracks at the end of each episode are also phenomenal!
ggmarquez20 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/08/21
I have been listening all day to your podcast and haven’t the words to fully express what I feel. The topic and messages within the podcast itself are very important and presented in a thoughtful and thorough manner, which I love. However, what prompted my rating were the flood of memories it...Read full review »

This was an immersive, thought provoking podcast that explores a complex issue with compassion and great objectivity. Fantastic production values!
Antifascist999 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/21
While I wasn’t sure this podcast / documentary was for me. Wow it really drew me in. Very informative and and excellent investigation into both sides or views of the situation. Which should be applauded. As a white Australian it made me have another perspective on everything we don’t really...Read full review »
Vikstar19 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/31/21
Such an elaborate piece of work that takes you through the depth of the rhino poaching crisis, looking at it from different point of views and eventually touches on many more relevant linked topics: colonialism, globalisation, feminism… Captivating narration, music and sound design. Highly...Read full review »
Marineinvalencia via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/28/21
I just wish there were more episodes. This podcast needs to be listened to, it needs to be talked about. Georgina Savage made a classic. Looking forward to seeing what she's going to come up with next.Read full review »
Callmegoldie via Apple Podcasts · France · 07/23/21
Such a fascinating and thoughtful look at this issue. This series is punctuated by nuance and self-reflection, and shows the issue of poaching in all its complexities - couldn’t recommend enough!
Ellapreda456 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/22/21
Fantastic story telling of an incredibly complex and gripping subject. The story follows so many different versions of the same narrative and builds a thorough, impartial account of white rhino poaching in South Africa. The podcast carefully explores many themes around race, class, gender, and...Read full review »

I don’t normally write reviews but this podcast had me completely enthralled. A thought provoking take on many complex and intertwined issues. Highly recommend
Beckyindevon via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/19/21
An absolute must listen. This podcast shares incredibly important information about the relentless and barbaric nature of poaching and is narrated beautifully. Each episode left me wanting more.
Phi Whit via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/17/21
I’m loving listening to this beautifully executed podcast. It is personal and sensitive and the topics explored are so important in the context of what is happening in South Africa at the moment. Congratulations to the team
Robains feedback via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/15/21
Extremely informative along with excellent narration. Thank you for enlightening me. I really appreciated showing the prospective from all angles. Looking forward to your next series!

A powerful, important story told so beautifully. I am not all the way through but am savouring each listening session. I cry, I laugh, I pause. The narration is rich and the audio style so imaginative and captivating. It really draws you in, every second. You can feel the care and time that went...Read full review »

I thought this was a great podcast that explored both rhino poaching and the societal reasons behind it! Not to mention a great soundtrack as well!
Plant Gay via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/13/21
Loved. So much more than a rhino doco. Refreshing for a documentary to present multifaceted observations without strong bias. Although the subject matter is heavy at times the podcast itself is very easy to listen to and incredibly morish. Highly recommend.

One of the most wonderfully produced podcasts I’ve listened to!! I left this show more informed and full of questions. Eagerly awaiting Season 2!
raqueldeserbelles via Apple Podcasts · Brazil · 07/13/21
This goes to the heart of a lot of problems we experience at the hands of merciless capitalism. Scary to see how far things can go. This podcast does an incredible job of highlighting the grave issues in such a way that is non-judgmental and merely seeks the knowledge of a depraved ecosystem.
Evander_x via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 07/13/21
!!!
Incredibly compelling storytelling that delves fearlessly into hegemonic systems of power — how they intersect and mutually sustain one another. All of this plays out in the fore/back-ground of a Rhino poaching war. The episodes move seamlessly between these micro and macro contexts to deliver a...Read full review »

This is a great podcast, incredible story telling and content. Absolutely hooked. Can’t wait for more!
Webber_1989 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/11/21
This series is a fine example of truly investigative, high quality journalism. I found every episode extremely well thought out and left each one feeling like I had learned so much more, from so many diverse perspectives on a topic I previously knew little about. Bravo!
Loonyleper via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/10/21
A wonderfully presented and well researched documentary. Really worth a listen!
Liv Sav via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/10/21
Who would have imagined where this story was going to lead once Georgina started tugging at the threads on the surface …
Peter Hedge via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/10/21
Or at least make you reconsider things. As someone who was vehemently against poachers for a long time before I considered their circumstances, this podcast will put anyone on the fence or possibly make them change sides.
GG from Seattle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/21
I dont consider myself very left leaning but this was a awesome doco.
GP1985_ via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/08/21
This is a massive pod. Hugely thought provoking. Moments of grim. Beautiful. Weird. Got my brain wondering about life. I can’t wait to hear the rest when travel loosens. Also, I cannot wait for a Q and A. I wonder how things have been received from both sides. Thanks for sharing such great work.
AllegedSquirrel via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 07/08/21

Investigative journalism at its best - absolutely flawless series. Will quickly rise in the top charts
Hotmail Chey via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/06/21
I found this podcast to be incredibly thoughtful and respectful of varying perspectives on am extremely complex issue. I hope this podcast helps educate people about systematic racism around the world, and the importance of working to dismantle it. Thank you to the show for your work!
Aleash124 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/06/21
I have just started listening. I am enjoying the reporting style, it is easy to comprehend. I am concerned that the information put forward will be just what the poachers may find out. Especially with the dog Ben, being put into danger. Hopefully it will be revealed that the poachers are aware...Read full review »
