So sad that Hamish wasn’t caught earlier. Interesting to hear how white collar crime is sentenced. Hamish destroyed so many lives. Podcast was well done. I was hooked after the first episode.

I finished this off in about two days as it is highly addictive, beautifully crafted and full of the kind of stories that will make your stomach churn as this is the report of a truly evil man who over a period of decades did unspeakable things to honest people as a conman of almost mythic...Read full review »

The creepy fraudster! A great story that reminds you to not to trust anyone, ever 🤣
BBnEV via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 11/07/19
For the most part, I was able to get past the host’s strained timbre and propensity for ending an interviewee’s sentences with sensational conclusions. Sure, these people invested to get rich quick, but they were also victims of fraud and deserved my sympathy. There was a distinct lack of...Read full review »

Janes interview was very emotional. She was so brave and honest. I didn’t like the intrusive probing when she was emotional. I thought the interviewer was insensitive, when Jane already felt shame and guilt when discussing certain events. Otherwise a good, well researched podcast unfolding...Read full review »

amazing account of the lives impacted by this person

Great pod!! Feel sorry for Jane, but she was just a child. For the life of me I can’t figure out why these people fell for this! Call it a good dose of US midwestern skepticism, but I was taught the if it seems too good to be true it probably is.

This story is compelling. Excellent investigative journalism.

Amazing podcast and fantastic reporting. Thank you!

It is absolutely insane that this was able to occur for such a long time. I have an unbelievable amount of compassion for the people's lives that hamish all but destroyed. I was so happy to hear even the small portion of the judge's verdict. Also, June. Listening to this bright, young,...Read full review »

Great storytelling about the abuses & manipulations of a cunning sociopath. People need to be wary of these people. They’re out there & they look just like us.

Still confused as to how this crook was not caught sooner!

For me it’s hard to understand the many phone calls the sound quality is in some important conversations to poor.

An excellent podcast. Focused, well edited, and evenly paced. An engaging and interesting story. I highly recommend it.

really interesting story; heart hurts for jane, who is a VICTIM and should be treated as such

A crime I didn’t even know about! Story is told impeccably and is absolutely addictive!
2mumsAus via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/09/19
I am enjoying this podcast and only have one episode to go. However, I am very concerned about the portrayal of “Jane.” I am very concerned for Jane’s view of what she “did.” Jane is 100% a victim of Hamish, if not a victim of the worst kind. She was an underaged “child” who was sexually,...Read full review »

What a rock star podcast! Brilliant storytelling and investigative reporting. A standout in a sea of average podcasts. Hurry up and punch out your next production please!
Gorgeous George 45 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/03/19
I have enjoyed this podcast- well constructed and well told. But during the full interview with Jane I could not stop cringing. Just so insensitive. This young woman (girl at the time) was a victim. She remained calm and courageous in telling her story but I found the unnecessary prying from the...Read full review »

Great podcast, told well
Dang star via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/02/19
This podcast was riveting. Fascinating subject, excellent interviews, sooooo compelling. What was difficult was the wet mouth noises/drinking/swallowing sounds REPEATEDLY, especially on the bonus episode. 🤢😬🤢😬🤢 Those sounds have no business being so LOUD and in my ears. Were I sitting next to...Read full review »

Superb
DL2035 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/31/19
Hamish is sinister no doubt and deserves to be locked away. But let’s not forget that the majority of victims were drawn to him due to his appearance of wealth and they greedily wanted a piece of that lifestyle for themselves.
takes 2 to tango via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/31/19
Fantastic podcast - interesting, insightful and the bonus episode with the full interview with Jane was a great addition. I hope the people he has hurt will overcome what this man has put them through. Bravo to the women who have spoken out, especially Jane.
Fbaddie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/26/19
Fascinating story and well documented. I really couldn’t stop listening. Interviews were very interesting and each person told their stories so well. Really have to hand it to Jane in particular. She was amazingly well spoken and articulate. Admiration for those who came forward. I hope justice...Read full review »

Follows in the same trail blazing path as Teacher’s Pet. Gritty and addictive from the first 30 seconds. Subscribe and binge! You will not regret it.

Enjoyed this entire podcast! Told and investigated brilliantly Great voice you have Greg! And how fabulous this piece of dirt is now behind bars!
magnatronic via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/20/19
Well done and such insight into people - sociopath and otherwise.
Laukelmomof3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/19
Greg doesn’t make himself the star as some journalists tend to do. His sensitivity and care of Hamish’s victims is a lesson in humanity we can all learn from. Compelling series.
Millie2310 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/15/19
The podcast was intriguing and very well done - I was thoroughly impressed at how eloquent and articulate “Jane” was in her interview. Hard to believe she was only 23 years old at the time. I listened to her bonus episode twice and found her to be honest, intelligent and well spoken. Thanks to...Read full review »

I can’t believe this man was able to do this for so long without being held accountable. Thank goodness he is now where he belongs.

Highly recommended, brilliant storytelling and compelling interviews. Great stuff.
Binary_Boy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/06/19
Great podcast! All of the podcast I have listened to from the Australian have been excellent. This one was no different. I enjoyed all of the episodes. I definitely recommend this podcast!
AbbyOzols via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/19
Jane was a child who was taken advantage of by an adult sociopath. Absolutely NO BLAME should be placed on her (which unfortunately occurred both directly and indirectly throughout the interview via Greg’s questions and language choices) - I had to stop listening to the interview because I found...Read full review »

Do your homework on the people you meet and do business with, and listen to your instincts.

An astonishing story but this especially stands out from the myriad of podcasts that each have an unbelievable story to tell.

Excellent podcast Really well documented & produced A credit to all involved Thankyou
arpy33 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/29/19
This was an incredible listen and a really intelligent analysis of a highly narcissistic conman. I really appreciated the time and respect given to the victims, particularly to Jane and Bec who were treated abysmally by Hamish. Just really brilliant.
aussiepodcastenthusiast via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/27/19
Loved this series. I thought Jane was fairly treated. Yes she was a kid but she thinks she is far more mature than she is and ultimately she made a choice to sleep with an adult, she was seduced by the money and the cars/holidays etc. She used Jack and Bec and has no remorse about that, just...Read full review »

This is fantastic and a real eye-opener. I have learned so much about the potential impact of white collar crime. The journalism is really sensitive and it’s wonderful that the interviewees were prepared to be so open - thank you. I’ve listened to it several times. Also, Jane seems exceptionally...Read full review »
everythings taken 1979 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/24/19
The “bonus” interview of Jane is repulsive. The interviewer is just as much of a creep as Hamish. Completely infects every previous episode. “Hey, can you describe in excruciating detail every aspect of your abuse at the hands of this man? Oh, you’re reluctant to? I’m going to press harder!” ...Read full review »

Greg! That final sentence was perfect and made me laugh out loud. Thanks for following this through to its conclusion. Have loved this podcast but feel nothing but empathy for his multitude of victims. He is a coward and deserves every minute of his jail time.
