This story is heartbreaking, but SO important for us to learn from. My takeaways from this excellently produced podcast is that we all need to look out for each other and, more importantly, speak up if we see any signs of abuse. I am so thankful to this podcast for making a difference in the...Read full review »

So repetitive I had to keep checking if I was actually relistening to the same episode over again. Could have easily been a 5 star if it was half the episodes.

I agree with the other reviews that this podcast was way to long. There was too much about Chris and the school girls. I didn’t need to know about all of that and all effect it has had on all the victims, that is another matter and had nothing to do with Lyn’s disappearance. I hope they figure...Read full review »

I loved listening to this podcast and have recommended it to many friends. I was surprised to see the latest episode dropping in April 2019 but was pleased to hear Hedley talk about respecting the wishes of the defense and the judicial system to pull down the previous episodes in order to allow...Read full review »

Great work bringing this story into public view and finally affecting an arrest after so long. But holy cow...this podcast could have and should have been at least half as long as it was. I felt like I listened to a few episodes before learning even one new fact. I know...part of Dawson's...Read full review »

Could have covered the same content in 5 episodes

Also hooked. Then looked it up and he has been arrested, the podcast is unavailable until the court case has been heard. Possibly only 2020... :(

I unsubscribed, I know, who cares. The Australian bowed to pressure from the privileged sector of society that protected Dawson for decades. Like a podcast would somehow prejudice juries... because no other media would cover this right ? Also, calling Dawson “Chris” over and over again the...Read full review »

Binged this over a weekend! Excellent investigative journalism.
Nicachica2012 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/14/19
What a story! Truly gripping and engaging. Left me desperately wanting to know more!
Fire4hair via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/14/19
Completely hooked and fascinated wth this podcast. It is brilliantly put together. I was half way through up too episode 11 and is now temporarily unavailable and with no information on to when it will be available it’s really disappointing.

I’m halfway through this podcast. I am really enjoying it. However due to Chris Dawson’s murder tréfila, the series has been pulled to allow a fair and reasonable trial.

I was hooked on this after Trailer but now every episode after that is unavailable!! Why?
Mrs Noosa via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/12/19
This podcast is a work of genius. It is without question one of the most important true crime podcasts ever made. It has become Australia’s Serial; as it shines a spotlight on deep problems in the criminal justice system. Teacher’s Pet also reveals the appalling privilege — essentially immunity...Read full review »

This remains the best podcast I’ve ever listened to and the one I always recommend to friends.

Great podcast but I’m also having trouble playing any episode from ep 11 and beyond? Just says there is an error?
GI19222527 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/11/19
Why can’t I listen to the podcast, keeps saying unavailable it’s really annoying
hamishandjoshuamum via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/10/19
Why aren’t I able to listen past the first few minutes of episode 11????
EmJ-is-who-I-am via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/10/19
So the very popular podcast could prove to be the key to Chris Dawson walking away. Great endeavour and slick journalism but at times too biased as it turns out for its own good. I hope he goes down despite🤞🏼
Balancedbroadcasting via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/09/19
I was hooked on this until I reached episode 11 and now all remaining episodes are apparently ‘unavailable’. Very disappointing
jona9876& via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/08/19
Highlights the appalling state of the NSW police and DDP. It took a journalist and a very proactive community to lead to a murder trial. What exactly are we paying our taxes for..... certainly not policing of any quality in NSW.
l_hubter via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/07/19
EVERRRRR.... I’ll be sad to see it get taken off however I most certainly understand the reasoning behind it. Hedley and his team done a sterling job putting it together and his amazingly calm dulcet tones of delivery were so relaxing they put me to sleep. The podcast material and content didn’t...Read full review »

A fascinating and compelling story, that needed a serious edit. Far too repetitive which is a shame
filmfestfreak via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/05/19
Bob Ruff host of Truth & Justice podcast discussed his favorite podcast to listen to and the The Teachers Pet was on the top of his list. I decided to give this podcast a try and found myself hooked immediately. I couldn’t stop listening and burned through each episode in 5 days. I’m really...Read full review »
Dillonskpr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/19
At first I enjoyed the story of what was portrayed as a journalist trying to resurrect a cold case (even if it was insanely repetitive and drawn out)… But to then find out that there already was a police investigation into this matter at the time of this podcast recording? Conveniently omitted...Read full review »

This is the most captivating podcast Lynette s would be thankful for the time and effort that perfect strangers have put in to clear her of deliberately leaving her two beautiful and dearly loved children in the hands of selfish and careless adults who still continue to care only about themselves...Read full review »
Miss Wooly via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/05/19
Thankyou for bringing this matter to the masses. It’s been fascinating and eye opening. Justice must take its course and with this podcast removed it means one less thing Chris and his legal team have to challenge. A chance for Lyn Dawson’s case to be properly investigated and considered...Read full review »

Best podcast I’ve heard in awhile. I can’t believe this case has remained “unsolved”.... seems like quite enough information to solve it and convict those involved as well as those who covered it up. I don’t understand how there can be any negative feedback! Truly well done!
Krista528 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/19
Whilst it is an interesting story and one that needs to be told, this podcast is drawn out, repetitive and in desperate need of editing. It strikes me as a somewhat self indulgent piece by someone who fancies themselves as a detective rather than a journalist.
Briedyc via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/03/19
This is by far the longest podcast I’ve ever listened to and it is the same thing over and over and over. It is soooooo repetitive... doesn’t make any progress until the end.
lindseyhmyers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/19
Same stories every episode, quick recap would be fine but details are not required, “refer to previous episode” would be useful.
porttay via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/02/19
Not produced well. Repetitive, and a bit scattered. Sad and intriguing story.
Teon77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/19
Podcast is well put together and nice to listen to... but the whole thing is just repeated same few ideas, and the investigator never talks to anyone that doesnt think the husband is guilty. Investigator never tries to bring an evidence that isnt hearsay. Total opposite of real investigation,...Read full review »

Too much going over same facts could be shortened
Jackierussel via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/01/19
As so many people have said, this podcast is so very repetitious and long-winded. It’s such a shame because it’s such a compelling story.
Cosmickate via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/01/19
I started listening to this podcast in the “Binge Listen” section on the Browse page. This podcast is very interesting and I can feel the injustice this case had. However, there should not have been as many episodes as there are. After about 5 episodes it began to become VERY repetitive. And I...Read full review »
HannahLynne97 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/19
This story needs to be said and needs to be heard for the sake of the victim, her kids but to highlight the white collar corruption (or overt negligence) that did and still does exist within Aust. The podcast is addictive (albeit repetitious), infuriating and heartbreaking but it raises a lot...Read full review »

Good crime story however everything was repeated which becam very annoying
siobhancarroll via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/28/19
In hindsight I wish I’d never started listening to this, a good true crime podcast, I was engaged and really wanted to find out what happened but so annoying listening to the same information repeated over and over. Big fail on the editors part here
bech2602 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/27/19
I love reading and listening to true crime stories, but I find this case to be very bitter sweet because I feel so much sadness and frustration for Lynette Dawson, her daughters, her family and friends. I haven’t reached the end yet, but so far I have thoroughly enjoyed Hedley’s attention to...Read full review »

This guy definitely is biased af. No proof what so ever that this guy killed his wife. He says stuff like he lies about certain thing when the guy didn’t lie he just didn’t tell everything. If you are having an affair you aren’t going to go on record with it or put it into writing. I am glad...Read full review »
Mroffer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/19
I'm glad I listened, but it could have been condensed a lot. As other reviews gave said, it was very repetitive. I'm happy that the podcast brought action to the case.
MrsJTupp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/19
I want to love this. The story is intriguing and I think bringing new interest to a cold case is important...however, the repetition is maddening. I’m on episode 3 and so far, it could have been condensed to 1 episode. I’m not sure I can listen to the entire thing with it being so drawn out.
troo80 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/19
Wow!
tabijo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/19
Whilst the story on a whole is interesting, the podcast is difficult to listen to. Information is repeated over and over again without actually adding to the storyline. Found it difficult to get through but listened because everyone said it was “so great” I don’t recommend it to anyone with...Read full review »
gfjjd via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/21/19
The story is amazing and hard to imagine happening in today’s world and it quickly drew me in. A few episodes in, I was angry at the nearly equal blame seeming to be placed on Joann— the underage teenager who was groomed, raped and abused by someone who was in a relationship of trust (him being...Read full review »

Fantastic, well written and well versed. Couldn’t stop listening. Detailed investigative reporting.
ElleWild via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/18/19
It’s an intriguing story but the host repeats the same thing on every episode. If they would have trimmed the fat and just put all the information in fewer episodes this would have been so much better. I couldn’t even listen to the last two episodes because I was so annoyed with it.
kelclashae via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/19
Very well narrated and researched and thoroughly engaging and interesting. Great work and very well produced.
sophieleedyball via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/16/19
This is a great story that is repeated over and over again every episode. I think it’s so important to share these stories the recent arrest can be directly attributed to Headley Thomas’s investigation, but I if I have to hear the words soft soil again, I will chuck my phone off a cliff.
