A brilliant, harrowing insight into a childhood that no one should have to experience. Would recommend anyone to listen to it and appreciate the bravery it must have taken to do what Joey did, because it needed to be done.

It is difficult to comprehend what Joey experienced. We live our lives day to day never, thankfully, having to come into any semblance of contact with the type of brutality and nightmarish situations he experienced throughout his most formative years. He was a child and his innocence as one was...Read full review »

This story is all consuming and tragic, I have listened to it non stop. It made me cry, laugh all at the same time. I hope Joey finds his way, and all his bad days are behind him now. Thank you for your story.

I had no idea what this podcast was about. I just started playing it and went with the story. You can tell throughout that Joey is being 100% honest and truthful about his experiences. His memory recall and detail is fascinating, I just hope going forward he’s able to forget a lot of the...Read full review »

I cried having listened to this podcast, not sure they were tears of joy that Joey has found some peace or for the loss of his youth and his suffering. I am hugely impressed by his resilience and appetite for life and I wish him a safe life he deserves a ton of happiness.

I think I could be best friends with Joey. Absolutely tragic story. So damn incredible.

My heart broke listening to this story. Strange how you can not know someone but feel so proud of them for being so brave. A story of true survival and determination to do the right thing. Thanks for telling your story Joey.
S.Fairey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/14/21
I hope Joey gets the peace he truly deserves it was a heartbreaking listen but what a strong person to tell his story and hopefully help others to stay away from this kind of life . Truth always wins in the end. Best wishes Joey

So nice to hear joeys voice today giving us an update on his life since the book and podcast. Usually when I finish a pod I delete from my library but not this one.

Every once in a while a hero comes along. The one who is brave enough to stand up for what is right despite the consequences. It’s an absolute disgrace that Joey is still having to live in fear for his life. I hope that them monsters are never released and that Joeys story helps to save someone...Read full review »

What a powerful story. The courage that he had to do the right thing is impressive. That he has been able to rise above all that occurred is a testament to his fortitude.
PeachySpeechy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/21
This story is one I still think about a while after finishing. It’s impossible not to want to invite Joey over for dinner & want to good for him. Around episode 7 or 8 when he tells the story of sitting his exams in the interview room of the police station is the first & only time in the...Read full review »

I really wanted to enjoy this but struggled with the accent far too much. Totally bummed, as the reviews are all so positive.

An extraordinary tale of strength and bravery, Joey has made me question my assumptions about many things. This is an engaging and well told account that has changed the way I look at life. I was affected from the start. I wish Joey the happiness and peace he truly deserves.

Joey is amazing at telling his harrowing story. Only complaint, I felt that by Nicola taking Joey back to that house re-traumatized him & was difficult to hear.
Disgusted in Canada via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/05/21
The Witness is a first hand account of how Joey’s life spirals out of control when he is befriended by a local small time criminal called The Milkman. Within months Joey finds himself way out of his depth with no means of escape. As the Milkman grows with ambition way beyond his station, the...Read full review »
