Someone Knows Something Reviews
David is a great story teller!
Like many, I was hooked by the well-done job of Season 1 and stayed around for a little while until I just couldn’t deal with the poorly put together storylines and production... On a whim and fact that there’s just nothing good avail RN, I decided to give Season 6 a listen. It hooked me from first 3 mins. THANK YOU!! Whatever behind the scenes fixes were done- However you got back to this solid level of production similar to early year’s chance AMEN, praise all the Gods, and Universe too!!! I’m only on episode 2 and hooked. Proud of you guys for adjusting and getting back to making and sharing solid story. My heart goes out to the mother. I feel her. And That’s bc of narrator dude coming back to his roots— not over describing and allowing listener to grasp it, feel it —well done, sir.
I love the different types of stories each season. The narrator/host/investigator/creator has such a calming way of getting people to talk to him. He should be a detective because he’d probably get a lot of people to confess. He is non-judgemental, down-to-earth, and adapts easily to dead-ends when he is following leads. He lets the people he talks to tell their story and doesn’t add fluff. He asks interesting questions and right when I’m thinking something, he asks the question I was thinking. You can tell he genuinely cares about finding out what happened and not just the sensationalism of a gory story. Plus i love the Canadian accents!
I’ve been waiting for a long time for David to return. Can’t wait to hear this one... even tho I haven’t heard it yet I’ll preemptively give it 5/5. ... that’s just how confident I am in David’s work.
Just wonderful and wonderfully perfect.
I have probably overbinged these podcasts. I find them so riveting like mystery novels, only this is real stuff. I am fascinated to hear the interviews with people from my own country who clearly live very different lives from me. David is a great story teller and he and the crew do a very good job at organizing the telling of the story. I am left feeling that every possible lead has been followed up on. I will say that based on circumstantial evidence in some cases, the authorizes should arrest and take some to trial. Just look at the cold cases investigated by Kelly Siegler in USA. Why are the police/RCMP nit jumping all over some of this stuff?
I thoroughly enjoy these podcasts. The investigative work is thorough and compelling. I also like David’s personality and how he is dog friendly-except for the Rottweiler!
I love listening to SKS, and above all I love how amazing Dave is with these families. He goes in to do this reporting and he really takes care of these grieving family members while he’s there. He gives them hope, companionship, and offers something to them I feel most of them thought they’d never get: a real chance to find out what happened to their loved one with the help of a person who genuinely cares. THAT is what makes SKS truly special. Dave, keep up the good work. What you do isn’t simply reporting to these families; it’s something far beyond that.
It’s not often when you are actually listening to a real true crime junkie AND the witnesses, in their voices, firsthand. Totally freaked when I heard it. So well done, so real and so gritty. I do have to laugh in Season 2, ep 3, I think called Blondie? When y’all all were at the propane tank parking lot and got into the car to talk? Less noise? I heard distinctive clicks of seatbelts! I laughed out loud. Great job on this podcast!
Season 3 blew my mind. Could not stop listening to it. Amazing amazing! Love them all but 3 brought me to tears many times.
I just finished listening to all 5 seasons of SKS and can’t wait for future episodes! David is to be commended for his dedication, investigation expertise, and ability to bring the families true feelings to listeners. I believe David’s efforts will lead to further arrests and convictions. Keep up the great work!!
This podcast is riveting. Just finished a binge of Season 5 and so hope the RCMP gets back on this case and devotes the time to it that was never given in the beginning. This family needs some justice.
Love all previous SKS investigations. Kept them coming.
Love this. Can’t wait for a new one to come out!
David Ridgen is simply brilliant. I could listen to his voice all day!! It honestly brings me a sense of calm. He is a top class journalist (thorough and doesn't sensationalise) & has a gift for storytelling. He also sounds like a genuinely nice dude. Clearly i’m crushing on David 😂 The quality of this podcast series in all areas like editing, sound, composition, arrangement etc - it is seriously well done.
If you download more than five images of Chuck Norris, your hard drive will explode.
I’ve listened to the first 20mins or so of the first episode...and it feels like the host is making it too much about himself. Also not really relaying any facts? Just reeling off vague idiom after vague idiom interspersed with a (fairly thin) personal connection to the case. After 20 mins, all I know about the case is the name of the missing boy, and that tells me that the focus on telling his story just isn’t there.
This is consistently a beautiful, tactful, well-researched and skilfully edited podcast.
David is like a modern day Columbo. Understated, unassuming, easy to underestimate, killer instinct. Beautifully crafted and totally addictive. Needs more than 5 stars
Great podcast. The hosts questioning of people seems to keep them at ease and they talk more openly and don’t feel threatened.
I get so excited when a new episode drops. Dave is such a natural story teller who is sensitive to the families involved. This doesn’t stop him from trying to get the truth. Hanging out excitedly for Season 5 in October.
I’m enjoying this podcast. I’ve started at season 1 and over the last 3 days I’m now up to season 3. It’s interesting, brings light to cold cases, and I enjoy hearing the from the people really involved in the case. I agree with others, I would love to hear what happens from here? What of the little boy that went missing.... season 2, wow, clearly he seems very guilty, would be interesting if he does come forward. I hope that this podcast does bring more light to these case and one day to be solved too. Well done. All the way from Australia.
It really is. The host is always sensitive and true to his topic. He is dogged yet respectful and even in interviewing all parties, often including traumatized/grieving parties which can be no picnic. What makes this stand-out quality is David paints a word picture in such detail that many others would miss. He has a knack for setting a scene or a mood clearly and without judgement or bias. It’s what he doesn’t say that says more. I love his lilting voice and his gentle, friendly and patient approach. There is no morbid fascination here, just someone painstakingly, diligently and intelligently trying to help solve a puzzle, easing other’s burdens by finding a resolution. There is no pushing for a sensational result at whatever cost: he is after the truth as best or close as he can find it. And finally the music he chooses for each season is well-matched and often haunting. Thank you, Mr Ridgen, sir. GB
Great serious, well researched. By the way I like the music!! GB
Great quality long form true crime story telling, have really enjoyed every series. Worth waiting the long break between each series ❤️ GB
