Reviews
The story is riveting but it could be told in way fewer episodes. The writer and narrator skips around so much. Much of the time his reporting is irrelevant.

Can’t wait to hear the court results.

Yes as some have said this podcast is a bit repetitive, but I honestly think without it Chris Dawson would have gotten away with murder. The lack of investigation on the PPDs part early on is mind blowing. This podcast made people look into this crime, new leads and even old ones that had been...

Got hooked 5 minutes in.

Absolutely compelling. Well done Hedley and all involved. Bring on the case and verdict.

This is the Podcast that has transformed me into a Podcast fiend! Hedley’s voice is very soothing and it’s obvious, he’s a man who really cares-cares about justice for Lyn but also her family; it’s easy to see how Hedley has become close to the Sims’ Family...I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a...

For a short while I thought maybe they introduced new people, I really got confused with the jumping around and repetitive story. At one point I thought maybe she did walk away.... How did nobody fight for Lyn? If Chris beat her how did her mother NOT question him? If Lyn came home and seen Jo...

It’s interesting nay riveting at the start but quickly runs out of runaway. Ultimately (and this is an American perspective) it’s a lot of hearsay and sordid stories. At times, it feels like this is more of an attempt to bully the courts and police into a guilty verdict than actually construct a...

Well done on bringing this case to life and helping to bring justice for Lyn.

An incredible insight to a horrible travesty. Thank you for exposing the injustice that exists within our justice system and being an advocate and a voice for those who are unable to speak for themselves.
Lylesk via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/15/18
Great subjective. But, bloody repetitive. I'd often zone out mentally, only to zone back in to something that's already been covered multiple times on other episodes. Reminded me of when I had long essay assignments in college and I'd cover the same points over and over again as filler. If I...

Pretty good journalism, makes an airtight case that he did it, and also that investigators deliberately looked the other way bc he was a star athlete. The system is trash in Australia too apparently 🙄
LRK718 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/18
This desperately needs an editor. It reminds me of one of those Discovery shows, like The Curse of Oak Island, where there’s a constant stream of almost nothing happening with no actual information, but it’s played dramatic and important. I wish I had read the reviews before starting this,...
Bob7268371844 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/18
The first few episodes were riveting. But after that I found myself tuning out because they started going over things again and again. Episodes could have been much shorter and just presented any new information they had.

12151990 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/18
Very riveting story and gripping - however do listen to this with some caution - I’m a lawyer myself and a lot of the information presented would not be admissible in court and the journalist is highly bias - there are many occasions on which he makes conclusion and asks leading questions from...
Lisalisa1818 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/14/18
Had to call it quits by episode 4- there is an excessive amount of repetition and length to each episode much of which isn’t additive. While the case sounds worth paying attention to, this podcast lost me.
tuneteller via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/18
What a story! It’s so thorough and well done. I understand what people have said about the repetition, but I don’t mind it because I tend to forget small details from previous episodes. Chris and Paul Dawson are monsters. The whole thing is absolutely despicable!
EmJuddz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/18
As others have noted, the real life case is fascinating but the structure & production of the podcast are incredibly frustrating. Bad audio, repetitive testimonials, lifeless monotonous narration, circular arguments that become increasingly confusing... I listened to the first 4 episodes then...
germaincm via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/13/18
Thank you for your work. I am fascinated like many regarding this story and checking on weekly updates for breaks in this case. Cannot wait for the trial but hoping for justice and closure for the families.
TwelvingIt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/18
This podcast is so wonderfully and masterfully done. Hedley is thorough and detailed and the entire story line is as riveting as it is devastating. I don’t live in Australia and didn’t know the case of Lyn Dawson but I feel truly invested now in this entire case. Beautiful!!
$ammy4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/18
Intriguing story however it badly needs editing and organising into a story that flows. It was really irritating hearing a snippet of info then hearing it would be covered in greater detail in a later episode, must have counted that occurring three times in one episode. The story doesn’t seem to...
Elaine Moran 11111 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/12/18
If you listen to the First Episode and the Last Episode you won't miss anything. It literally repeats the same points in EVERY EPISODE.... Might have been a mistake to release on weekly(?) basis as this made most of the podcast a newscast of the reactions to the First episode...
Devilyn1822 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/12/18
For giving a voice to Lyn and shining a light on the insidious nature of domestic violence. A brave stance by the Australian that will hopefully bring about accountability for what Chris has done.
mckerckellllll via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/12/18
Story was told so well The best podcast ive found yet!! 5*
louie21378 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 12/12/18
Great podcast, such an addictive listen. Really well produced and narrated. Like others had trouble downloading for a week or two also had to stream episodes, which was pain when under ground travelling etc, but in the last day or two that appears to have been fixed and all eps now down loading...
Marie&Andrew via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/12/18
Brilliant podcast and beautiful dictated. I’m really hoping the story keeps going so we can learn more. Specially being that I live in the UK. Thank you
acepett via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/12/18
The podcast subject is interesting but way too repetitive. We review the same facts and opinions over and over. There could have been way fewer episodes
ienxiejwneu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/12/18
Like many, I believe this podcast should have been far fewer episodes and more succinct. Would have greatly benefited from proper editing/paring down, as the case is worth exploring. Also- no episodes can be downloaded currently (in Canada). Frustrating.
teenabeena10 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/11/18
Commendably researched investigation that exposes shambolic original police work. It’s an enjoyable listen though may have benefited from both some editing, sound design and more suspenseful narrative structuring. For a masterful example of this in the true crime genre listen to West Cork on...
Shzuzu 250 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 12/11/18
This podcast is a very interesting 4 episode podcast told over 16 episodes.
Gaelicite via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/11/18
Excellent journalism. Fascinating podcasts. The detailed analysis of the facts and the way the evidence is presented by Hedley brings this tragic story to life. He asks the questions we would all want to ask but remains objective in his narrative.
Lulu York via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/11/18
I'm only 1/2 way through, but this is an amazing podcast. So thouroughly and thoughtfully researched and told. One of the best series I've heard.
Evemail via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
Only podcast impossible to actually download and listen to.
Rajj_rkb via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/10/18
This is an intriguing story and Lynn deserves justice. However, as others have stated, it just goes on f o r e v e r and is repetitive. It could have been cut in half and I would have enjoyed it more.
Roxymom77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
Podcast drags like you wouldn’t believe. I’m invested in what happens, so I will finish it, but man, it’s painful to go through it all. Not the fault of the podcast but wow everyone around Lynne was entirely useless. “Oh, she had hand-shaped bruises everywhere but I had no idea she was abused!”...
deannabanana111 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/10/18
It seems that it early on the paper realized they had a hit on their hands and they expanded the number of episodes and their length. Also, the position of the prosecutors is poorly defended. Look, Chris Dawson murdered his wife. We know that. But what PHYSICAL evidence do they have? They...
Aphilsphan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
Interesting story, however issues preventing from downloading any episode past #2 means I will no longer continue until this issue is acknowledged and dealt with.
Griffin_23 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/10/18
I so badly want to know the details of this story but don’t have the patience to listen to the info given in past episodes to get to the good stuff. I gave up but if Sarah Koenig and the Serial team want to take over, I’ll gladly come back!
mbjbfb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
I’m shocked this podcast made it to air, much less has so many downloads. It’s so repetitive and subs actual investigative journalism with hearsay. You’re better off googling Chris Dawson and getting the facts in five minutes rather than wasting 12+ hours of your life listening to this podcast.
EustaceScrub via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
My son recommended this, but l can’t get any episodes to download. I have subscribed to many podcasts, never had an issue before. Any news on when this problem will be addressed and resolved?
D. M🦇 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/10/18
Can’t download this which is really frustrating given i wanted to check it out.
Bunny Von Tail via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
Wow , my very first Podcast! God love Lyn and RIP . Frightfully we’ll written and narrated ! Absolutely addicting and sadly true ! Well done .10 out of 10 . BotoxBozza
Botoxbozza via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/10/18
I loved the way this podcast was told... I could not stop listening to it and look forward to hearing future episodes... I was aware of this very sad storey from when it happened but I have only heard bits and pieces until now.... I feel much sadness for lyn and her family and I also feel sadness...
timtam66 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/10/18
So ridiculously addictive! I couldn’t stop listening until the very end. Unfathomable how many mistakes were made in this case & in prosecuting Chris Dawson. Such an injustice to what seems a very beautiful sweet lady. Thankyou for finally telling us her real story & giving those involved some...
lozziekate via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/10/18
This was the first podcast I’ve ever listened to and was hooked. I binged listened over 3 days and appreciated how through and in-depth Hedley was. I’m appalled and disgusted how life was in Sydney in the 80s. As if being ‘good looking’ was all that mattered or an excuse for such repulsive...
hollyattard via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/10/18
Well presented and in depth. Hope justice is done.
StephMelbbbbn via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/10/18
If you’ve not heard of the case, do yourself a favour and listen.
