I have listened to the Australian crime podcasts in the past and enjoyed them. However this one felt unstructured and bounced around from topic to topic without clear signposting or introduction of new voices. It was hard to keep a track of, and I’ve ended up replaying large portions which is...Read full review »

I’m not a reader of NewsCorp publications but Hedley Thomas seems to be an exceptional investigative journalist and it’s wonderful that he is able to put effort into trying to find closure for such devastating cases. I desperately hope there can be some closure for the Vaughan family as soon as...Read full review »

Why do I care about a car race that took place (if memory serves) a good two months before the woman’s disappearance? What am I doing listening to announcers of this race for minutes? I am sorry, but it feels like you fill in your podcasts with irrelevant detail and repeat information. More...Read full review »

I am late to the party with this one. Very sad story of a horrific crime and police misconduct possibly. I cannot understand how her stalker, who she probably new through the store etc has not been identified or more closely scrutinised. I really hope this beautiful lady and her family find the...Read full review »

Hedley Thomas’ work is always superb and this was no different - serious journalism meticulously and grippingly told; he has a great radio voice too. I’d love to know what updates there are.
Radionoush via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/16/22
I’m from the UK and I just Love the podcasts based around finding the perpetrators so the families get the closure they so desperately deserve. What is a fantastic piece of investigative journalism also casts huge light on just how many male suspects there can be in one vicinity that women feel...Read full review »

However, just because Brad Hoseman and his family say he is innocent- doesn’t mean he is. Him denying the flowers was telling.

I love these one case mysteries and this one is in depth and full of details. We can remember and connect to the characters. No baloney. It's great and I am totally enveloped in the story. Lynn, CanadaRead full review »

Healey is so easy to listen to. Great podcast. Such a sad story
BushyBabe1789 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/15/22
I’m halfway through episode 3 and just grossed out by how biased Hedley is. Is this a podcast about a woman’s disappearance, or about exonerating this Brad Hoseman? I find myself questioning what exactly has passed between Hedley and Brad to make him so bent on singing his praises. Maybe an old...Read full review »

Wonderful journalism, respectful telling of a tragic story. I hope this wonderful family gets the answers they deserve 💔

Very interesting that a woman who became a murder victim was described as a drama queen, but did actually disappear never to be seen again.
under the milky way via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/01/22
Hi there - Over the years, I've listened to hundreds of true crime podcasts and whilst this one was pretty good; the repitition of previously stated opinions was a bit much. Also, I felt that many of the female voices were incredibly similar and the back announcements of their identities...Read full review »

It’s frustrating that the podcast producers heavily believe that Andrew Jones is not a good suspect just because Lynette couldn’t ID him in a police image line up. That doesn’t mean it wasn't him that tried to abduct her. Who knows what image she was shown. More research has to be done. He...Read full review »

Spreading trumpist propaganda?? I really thought this podcast was better than that.
MDahlhausen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/19/21
Absolutely riveting. This podcast kept me invested from beginning to end. Brilliant research, production and narration. Superb formatting. It’s nuanced and detailed. Hadley’s interviewing style is thorough, pragmatic and seemingly effective; he certainly seemed effective at garnering information...Read full review »

Listening to Hedley Thomas is almost like sitting down for a chat with a friend. He draws the listener in and makes the story and people come to life. A very well made podcast about an intriguing case.
LincKym via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/13/21
Brilliantly researched and produced. Gripping from the start.
David Rhys via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/25/21
Healey has a great investigative mindset, a sharp intellect and a balanced and reasoned approach. As a former detective I love listening to his podcasts and can relate to his insights.
brobes66 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/21/21
I went from a break listening to podcasts and decided to throw myself back in. I had to think about what I really enjoyed to begin with when emotionally investing in a story and then I thought about Hedley and his way of telling a story. His dedication and hard work pays off and then the hook .....Read full review »
tamaramosh via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/21/21
I loved this podcast but it lost credibility for me when he talks of an argument she had with someone the night she went missing, interviews that person but then decided himself not to disclose to the listener what the nature of the argument was! Like, why even include that whole segment then? A...Read full review »

I LOVED this podcast. So suspenseful and a tough one to crack. In my opinion Barry Cranston did it. He was the one spreading the rumours about brad.

Can’t be bothered Where’s the beginning? Where’s the hook? It seems to start halfway through the story We don’t even have a a plot before we hear from grieving family Such a shame..
Gursel Ali via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/28/21
I couldn’t stick with it because of the terrible editing. Such a shame because it was otherwise a great podcast.
BB-Belinda via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/09/21
Great content. Hedley always does such a good job with his productions, interviews and the way the podcasts are constructed. However the podcast skips, jumps and glitches all over the place. I thought it was something g wrong with my player but it was the recording itself. Would be amazing if...Read full review »

This podcast is fascinating. It was however frustrating and annoying as it is so poorly edited and jumps around abruptly which results in difficulty concentrating on it. There are times where the same snippets are repeated, some 3 times. What a shame as it detracts from the quality of the...Read full review »

There are numerous examples of police covering up the crimes of other police. To act or talk about how that isn’t possible is either stupid or very suspect. And he was on the case
infamous IA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/21
I binged this podcast as it has a lot of very interesting information and I enjoyed the interview style and manner, however, it’s poorly edited. Lots of skipping and repeating. Quite messy. Probably worth re-editing as it’s one that many would get into and may even one day solve this cold case!
Angi3ell via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/28/21
Could have been shortened by 2-3 episodes. Good, but not as good as the Teacher’s Pet. A lot of repeat details.
parford via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/21
If you liked the teachers pet you’ll like this... Gripping podcast from start to finish, hoping they do another season!
Miroslawa_ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/16/21
Love the speed of the commentator and the clarity of pace and thought. Please come back with another season or at least do another podcast on a mystery. Please research into the missing Nicola Sallese and interview all those surrounding.
Charliemac131313 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/06/21
Please don’t waste time on silly teaser updates. So very annoying.

After studying the pics of the car for some time , and also that I know their are some very credible suspects , the car looks to me a Toyota Corolla hatchback 94-95 ish which comes in a red maroon salmon colour depending on how you interprete.

I decided to listen to this after loving The Teacher’s Pet. Unfortunately, this one was not nearly as good.

He respects everyone in the story, presents...Read full review »

Between this podcast and The Teacher’s Pet there is simply no one even close to doing what Hedley is doing in True Crime investigating/podcasting. His work is a must listen for any fan of the genre.
hereticpride87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/21
I have binged it! Great work here! I sure hope the truth is about to come out and somebody will come forward by speaking out! My hope is that they will find her and her family can put her to rest!
Klipitar via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/23/21
Brilliant one of the best podcasts I have listened too. Hope everyone involved gets the answers they want and the family can finally lay Janine to rest. Highly recommend! I literally couldn’t stop listening!!!!
DaniP6103 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/07/21
I really enjoy every bit of this podcast. It left me wanting to find the answers for the family, Frustrated and Intrigued all at the same time. Such a well done podcast!

Exceptional podcast. Best Australian podcast I have listened to - thoroughly researched and narrated with dignity, respect and compassion shown towards Janine and her family. Absolutely brilliant. Thankyou.

incredibly distracting bad audio
wbg20 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/21
This sounds like a high school paper that strings together a bunch of quotations without actually saying anything. It seems to assume you already know the story, starting in the middle with suspects and jumping around randomly, without any overview or background whatsoever. Host is obsessed with...Read full review »
