Breaking news folks, if you drive or work for drugs, and for a thug like this Sean thug, a life long criminal, a drug dealer, just a general stupid thug, your life could be in danger, or is this news to some of you? this native fella that got out alive, count your lucky stars, and stay the hell...Read full review »

…about a really important story. I hope all your work leads to some answers in this case. I know from experience that the Nanaimo RCMP hasn’t always taken sexual assault seriously. Good on you for holding their feet to the fire.

Just found this podcast and am so impressed. Laura Palmer has done her research so professionally. Looking forward to the other seasons.

I have listened to many true crime podcasts but I love the way you do yours. You get right in there and get some answers and you don’t give up. I wish you weren’t all the way across Canada as I am an advocate for a local missing man and no one is talking. Anyways keep the great content coming. ❤️

I really enjoy this podcast, it’s well researched, the attention to details is so well down but the music in the background is really annoying. It’s too loud and doesn’t serve any purpose. I cannot tune it out when i listen to the stories. The only thing negative i have to say about this! Please...Read full review »

Excellent podcast. Just a little hard to navigate through the sequence of episode.
CLllQc via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/22/23
This podcast can’t be called investigative journalism. I listened to season 5 over the course of about a week. When I finished, I went back and checked to make sure I didn’t somehow skip/miss some episodes…nope, there just wasn’t any meat to this story. The whole season is comprised of a few...Read full review »

I am from the island although I don’t live there anymore. I await every new story and every episode. I am particularly haunted by Lisa’s story. So many things went wrong that night and there were so many opportunities to intervene and help her. I hope the cases get solved. Thanks for your great...Read full review »

Just not interesting and doesn’t give any new information beyond episode one.

A content warning for all the animal abuse would have been nice.

This podcast is very well done, thoroughly investigated, and respectful to the victims and there families. Well done!
Kvjo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/23
It’s obvious what happened. It’s tragic that Amber was murdered by Justin and then he took his own life.
MaverickAbundance via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/23
Excellent podcast and reporting . My wife and I moved from Kelowna and little did I know about these mysteriously missing souls in the island . It’s excellent reporting like yours that puts pressure onto people that do have information and need to speak up , to give closure for the friends and...Read full review »
Joey Catalan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/26/23
I am glad I stumbled on this podcast. I’m listening to season five right now. The story is very interesting, intriguing and human. The host doesn’t just focus on the story, but also tries to give background on the individuals involved. Their feelings, motivations, fears, faults and lives. There...Read full review »

Started listening to the Whiskey Creek episodes as it’s 10 minutes from where I live. Now I’m listening to them all. Laura tells an incredible story with deep research and compelling personal perspectives to each case. We are very fortunate to have this podcast series for our island community.

Excellent podcast and MAJOR shout out to Pink Mountain Michael. Need more men like him ♥️
van isle listener via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/07/23
When I seen this podcast it definitely caught my attention as I grew up on the island. Laura delivers these news events from the island with the victims at the forefront. She is very well spoken and keeps the news events in chronological order. I can invision the areas of the island in my mind...Read full review »

I finally started this podcast after finishing so many others... I heard this pod was good, but the negative reviews deterred me. Now I wish I hadn't waited to give it a listen — the problem is with the reviewers, not the host. This pod is excellent. I started with season 5, now working my...Read full review »
Not even into vid games! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/23
A true crime story close to home and told in a way that held my attention till the end. A great podcast overall.
Ayhicks via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/19/23
I’m not in Canada and I got completely sucked in. Laura delves right in. She doesn’t sugar coat the people involved and asks the uncomfortable questions. I also appreciate that she doesn’t selfishly dramatize or false report. She unrolls the facts in a uniquely palatable storytelling manner. I’m...Read full review »

A must-listen for those who care about the news that mainstream outlets overlook. Thank you for showing the humanity of the victims of this tragedy, Laura Palmer.
Pidgefancy via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/14/23
Shining a bright light on unsloved island homicides. Lindsay Nichols who vanished near Courtenay in 1993 could use some more attention too
True history fan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/13/23
Laura has a way of relating to the people she interviews and see the best in everyone. Professional yet personal - she’s great.
Marsands via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/06/23
Came across this podcast by fluke and I’m so glad I did. I am hooked. Very easy to listen to. You’re doing an incredible job speaking for those who need a voice. Well done.
JMB285 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/06/23
You should do one about what happened in Tofino!

I am so hooked on your podcasts!!!
Louuuuiez via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/29/23
Well produced show but really 2 violent career criminals and their junkie friend get killed. I understand why police have better crimes to solve with their time. Who gives a hoot.
cravenabeer via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/28/23
Please make her stop. Painful
Namynot via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/23
Laura does an excellent job of setting the scene each season. Her efforts to connect with the people and the land are evident and effective. You get a true sense of what the landscape is, both physically and emotionally, for the people connected in this season. You can tell she cares about...Read full review »

If you have to distort the audio quality so much to hide the identity of the source, why bother having it on the show? The Survivor episode is unbearable.

Phlegm flarg. Gotta zarg the ded people for zarg clicks
J. Oatmon via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/25/23
I agree with the other reviews. Couldn’t get past the host’s voice and storytelling style. Her first episode was poorly put together in my opinion and I have no idea what is going on.
Eleanor Ethereal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/23
The host should stick to research and writing. Her narration is beyond bad, it’s painful.
1234KoKoGo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/23
Carefully researched and presented in a very professional but engaging manner. This is my absolute favorite true crime podcast. As a resident of Vancouver Island, I really enjoy each episode, and eagerly await the next! Thank you, Laura!
OakBaySue via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/12/23
It would be much better if you did not speak like a robot. It is hard to listen to. I had to stop listening.
Kaylagrigsby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/23
The best coverage of local cases. Informative, unbiased and fair.
Radical Chicken via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/24/23
I found this podcast by accident but I’m hooked now.
Auwombat via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/24/23
As someone who has asked the question themselves, is there a problem with missing boys on Vancouver island? This podcast is needed!! Laura is helping people feel heard. Helping those who can’t tell their story, tell their story. Brining attention to cases that need answers. Her voice is...Read full review »

I haven’t read any of the reviews , with the exception of the that preceded my review. Negative breeds negativity. Pay them no mind if possible. I think you are doing a great job! I enjoy every word. Keep up digging up the facts, to find answers. Thank you so much!☺️
booksholic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/23
This is a well produced, captivating and empathetically thought out series of podcasts about unsolved cases of missing people on Vancouver Island. If you are interested in justice, you’ll be disappointed, as these cases are still open. However these stories need to be told, and the missing...Read full review »

Kudos to you on your reporting of Michael’s disappearance. This report brought chills, especially the brown van man, it sure hits too close to home! It’s so disappointing that our local police refuse to cooperate in an investigation that went so seriously wrong. Our daughter was only 3-mths old...Read full review »
Valleyview68 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/19/23
For those of you 1-star haters moaning and finding so many faults with this podcast, maybe keep in mind that what Laura is doing is helping grieving families and lighting a fire under some non-priority cases around missing people. Season 1 alone has reignited the case about Lisa Young and every...Read full review »
Kfred22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/23
Sorry to say I had to quit. I made it 4 episodes of season 1 and that’s it for me. The most we get in 4 episodes is a basic recounting of the crime and Lisa’s backstory, which is great, but that should be 1/2 of episode 1. I have found the telltale sign of an amateur podcast is that they haven’t...Read full review »

I have listened to a Laura’s coverage of Lisa Marie Young. I had heard of the case many years ago. I have always been interested in true crime. I’ve watched many television shows, listened to many pod casts on true crime. She is by far, does the best coverage. Her compassion and in depth coverage...Read full review »
