Just listened to season two and what a story! Brilliantly reported with incredible access to Nicola Gobbo. Highly recommend!

What an amazingly professional and eye opening podcast. The journalists were so inspiring in their relentless commitment to bring such a huge and important topic to the public. The public has never before had access to this level of information nor heard from Nicola herself in regard to this...Read full review »

How she was allowed or let herself to become a mother is the question I’m left asking. That’s got to be a crime everywhere but Victoria Disgusting attempt at justifying her behaviour, but considering the integrity of the police, the pillar of justice is nothing but a rotten joke and even a royal...Read full review »
Gone forgot via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/23/20
Stumbled upon this series while looking for something to listen to while I cleaned out the garage and I legit binged both seasons over the weekend. The podcast is informative and remains unbiased through both seasons. Rachael has got the perfect voice for a podcast, so lovely and soothing....Read full review »

What a stupid comment. Valour awards are for rare and exception courage. Moral courage is not rare in policing or the general public. Regardless of this horrendous blemish on Victoria Police and policing generally - moral courage is common, not rare. Any suggestion otherwise is self serving and...Read full review »

Very interesting story, but it’s shown through a very bias lens where Gobbo is painted as a victim to police

Best coverage of this amazing story, love how real Rachael Brown is. Sometimes it’s hard to remember this is a real life story. I’m left feeling almost everyone involved could only tell their perspective and their truth, how close to the truth that really is... we may never know. Really great...Read full review »

Season two of this podcast investigative journalism at its best. Incredible work
DanT129876 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/11/20
Amazing podcast. After bingeing all episodes I can’t wait for the next one Rachel!

Rachel, Josie and the entire team who put this show together. I absolutely loved it! Such an insightful piece and it allows you to see where she fit in with the gangland world. I look forward to any updates and new shows.

I was torn about the second series ... it was thoroughly researched and showcased great storytelling, but it was too fan-girl. The system has failed, the police have failed, but Nicola is by no means a victim or blameless. I sympathize with her partner and her poor children, but that does not...Read full review »

I almost feel sorry for her now.
MezzaFraser via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/17/20
Love these series. such incredible real life stories
Summer1_2 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/13/20
Amazing podcast, extraordinary unbiased journalism!
KamillaEve via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/04/20
Very well researched and articulated. Soothing execution of some unsavoury situations and definitely holds the audience captive. Well done and please keep it going!!!!
Archer013 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/02/20
Nice to have so much detail. Solid work. A little too much thrillseeking though ... crime isn’t glamorous in fact, despite what Netflix tells us. Keep ‘em coming.
matthewddasilva via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/01/20
An incredible real-life story only enriched by truly exceptional journalism. I’m going straight back to the beginning and listening again.
jenkay7020 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/01/20
Refreshing, objective, non-biased journalism. Couldn’t stop listening. Highly recommended.
Maz456778 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/28/20
Very good podcast, intriguing story that raises as many questions as it answers. Had a bit or everything from drama and action to romance and conspiracy theories. What more could you want.
Bergerscoffer via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/24/20
Kudos to Rachel and her team for delivering a podcast masterpiece! Everything from the music thru to the nitty gritty details was perfection and kept me hanging on to the bitter end! Great unbiased journalism!
RachelFox4 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/24/20
Informative, intelligent and honest. It’s also frustrating, annoying and convoluted- (like every good story) Lawyer X has an excuse for everything .... as do the Victorian police.
Joblack71 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/22/20
The podcast tries hard and technically it succeeds. After all, it's produced by a professional outfit. But trying to make Nicola look like she's been hard done by is very on-the-nose. This woman has put the public at great risk and her unethical actions have cast disrepute on her...Read full review »

One of those podcasts that you dread knowing it is coming to a end. Highly recommend!

Baz de baz via Apple Podcasts · France · 10/19/20
This story is thought provoking, opinion dividing and simply perplexing. I felt a little sick after the last episode after the insight into the real workings of a system we are supposed to trust. Challenges a lot of my understandings of our systems. I’m more confused than before listening. Bravo...Read full review »

Amazing journalism. It was incredible to go on this journey and hear from so many different sources. You end up like the reporters wondering what to think of it all but questioning the mainstream media’s portrayal of this complex figure. Loved the podcast - very addictive and thought provoking.
LizabethLangton via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/13/20
The topic of Lawyer X is one of great intrigue. I enjoyed series 1 and happened upon series 2 after an interview, where you discussed this case, on Australian True Crime. I was hopeful for some sort of resolution or at the very least clearer answers as to why she did what she did. This series...Read full review »

Fabulous reporting! I’ll be wondering what happened to Nicola for a long time.

While in lockdown I have been fortunate to be able to do some driving for my job. Between jobs this week I couldn’t wait to get back in my car and hear the next instalment of this bizarre, complicated and fascinating piece of Melbourne history/current situation. Thank you Rachel and co for the...Read full review »

So addictive. What amazing stories for both seasons. I really want to know what happens for both stories. Keep the updates coming.
Hawkins5$ via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/08/20
An incredible story illustrated by quality journalism. It took me on a sad conflicted journey, the whole time wondering if it could get any more crazy, every episode offering more tantalising details of this real life crime saga that has literally brought the Victorian police force and our age...Read full review »
Trayn K via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/07/20
This podcast was so good I binged the entire thing in a week!! Incredible reporting. Some of the reviews here state an unfair bias toward Nicola - total rubbish! (Perhaps they are cops and is proof of their complete inability to accept any unfavourable comment about VicPol, who behaved...Read full review »

Thanks Rachel for another amazing piece of incredible journalism! I loved your first Trace and this is just as good although incredibly disturbing. I hope you are able to continue this story and end it with Victoria Police having a major cultural change in light of your story and Nicola being...Read full review »

You are incredible journalists! Thank you I really hope we hear more!

Wow - what a powerful story, uncovered and told with incredible skill. The team should be very proud.

A very interesting podcast. Fascinating and addictive. Well done

Both seasons are brilliant. Regards to Nicolas season, what an ending! I don’t want to give anything away here for those who haven’t listened yet but I really hope all is well with the parties involved and wish everyone the best.

Couldn’t stop listening!
di bundy via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 10/04/20
Hey Rachel, Does Nicola have her children back now? What is happening to Maria James case? Can you do more pod casts you are so good
Kellie03evans via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/03/20
This is an incredibly compelling story. The journalists did a knockout job here. “All of our systems are rotten, our churches, banks and police. They’ve all fallen over”.
poplyfe1 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/02/20
A nuanced and thoughtful exploration of what happened behind the headlines. Incredible access to Gobbo and those around her makes tis riveting. The reveal in the final episode is a knockout.
Rachel, Brisbane, Australia via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/01/20
Amazing podcast and incredible level of reporting. Perfect audio design as well
JoeJoe's via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/01/20
Love the story, hate the way the music is not in the background but seems to be competing with the story for centre stage.
maddog 75 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/30/20
Fabulous Australian true crime. Beautifully put together and edited. Thank you so much.
aunty mame via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/30/20
