Unsolved Murders: True Crime Stories Podcast Reviews

Clear, informative and professionalThis podcast just feels of great quality; the limited voice actors fill each role well and it becomes easy to immerse yourself in each case. Sure, they’re occasionally a little cheesy and the accents tend to stay U.S. no matter where it’s set, but it doesn’t take anything away from the podcast at all. (and I personally like the sort of retro/kitsch vibe of the show - which makes you feel even more a part of the historic cases!) People giving one star because this is ‘cheesy’ are being pretty ridiculous really - sure it may not be to your personal taste, but the actual execution of the podcast is slick and professional and I personally enjoy the style! It makes the dark subject matter a little less intimidating when I listen to it whilst walking home alone.... 😭.Score: 5/5

Love these!Really enjoying these, they’re delivered in a serious sympathetic manner not laughing and joking. I also enjoy the re enactments even if they can be a little cheesy as they really bring the stories to life - these cases are about real people not just story characters. They’re a really interesting selection of cases too most of which I’d never heard of. Not keen on the theme music but it doesn’t last long and doesn’t detract much from the rest of the show. Great job guys - keep them coming!.Score: 5/5

Good but stop beggingI have given this a 3 stars for a number of reasons and the biggest one is begging for a 5 star review and them claiming they had people contact them asking how they can help, I find it hard to believe people would go out there way to ask them how they can help, please STOP BEGGING, and this has been going on since the start, second some of the stories are really interesting and I have to agree with some of the comments, but for me it’s the voice from one story to another I am getting mixed up with characters, a father is re-enacted by someone with a really old voice and yes the music doesn’t always fit the scene, overall it’s got some good story’s and your assessment of the cases are very good. Just please I will say it again STOP BEGGING FOR A 5 STAR REVIEW..Score: 3/5

OkWell researched and sympathetic towards victims but the re-enactments are very cringeworthy - especially the cases outside of the English-speaking world acted out by Americans..Score: 2/5

The Green BicycleHaving listened to the most recent episode - The Green Bicycle - I am unsure of the authenticity of using American accented actors for characters and from Leicestershire. And the Americanising of terms such as ‘attorney’ is frustrating. Also, apparently “Ronald Bright died in the seaside town of Kent” - or, with a quick check, actually Charing, Ashford, Kent (not a seaside town) - so maybe not so ‘well researched’.Score: 3/5

CringeyTrue crime is a really interesting topic and can be done really professionally and respectfully. I’m sorry but the voice acting in this is just so bad it’s painful. Sad really because I quite like other parcast podcasts.Score: 2/5

UK FANJust started listening to the unsolved murder podcast on the stitcher platform. They are amazing! So well set out, very easy to stay with the story and the voice acting is brilliant. It’s my go to when at home or in the car..Score: 5/5

Brilliant!I’ve been listening to a lot of the True crime stories podcast recently, and I find the length of each podcast fits perfectly into my morning routine before school. Most of the episodes vary from 30-50 minutes long, which in my opinion makes the podcast perfect to listen to whilst perhaps driving home, getting ready for work or school. At first, I was skeptical that the ‘frightening’ aspect of many of the crime stories would make it difficult to listen to at night time, as I myself am often anxious about the strange things that happen in many of the crimes. I often get chills when listening to horror stories- which of course is interesting, but can sometimes become ‘too real.’ However, I believe that the podcast is both not too scary, but still very interesting and gripping- the perfect balance for someone like myself, who loves a bit of horror- but sometimes gets a bit too involved in storylines and plots and scares them-self. Admittedly, I haven’t been a Parcast Subscriber for a while- I’ve only been listening to True Crime Stories for a matter of 2-3 weeks or so at this point- but still I have managed to listen to almost every podcast. Additionally, I’ve even been so inquisitive about multiple cases that I’ve been inspired (on more than one occasion) to do my own research about multiple of the conspiracies involved in the crimes. Carter Roy and Wenndy MacKenzie (the Podcast’s presenters) always manage to pleasantly surprise me as the plot thickens with each case- they do a really good job of not arousing suspicion before mentioning every perspective and angle of the crime story. Another thing I have often noticed with Parcasts’ Unsolved Murders presenters is their positive outlook on multiple cultures and beliefs. What I mean by this is that (often) with many unsolved crime stories their seems to be at least one conspiracy involving either spiritual, scientific or religious beliefs. Carter Roy and Wenndy MacKenzie (and the producers/script writing team, I am sure) do well to not ‘beat around the bush’ when it comes to these beliefs. Although many people find religion, spirituality or scientific beliefs difficult to talk about when considering everyone’s opinion, they do well to speak carefully and to not offend any listeners who may support the same beliefs as those involved in the crime story’s plot. A good example of this would be the podcast’s “The Lead masks case” episodes- in which a lot of the conspiracies about the confusing murder involve in-depth spiritual beliefs. The script writers do well to take into account that anyone at any time could be listening about something they too believe in- they do not make those in the story with said beliefs sound ‘crazy’ or strange. Thanks Parcast for this brilliantly written podcast :). Fay, 16..Score: 5/5

Great Podcast, but..I have asked my 13 year-old daughter what she thinks of this podcast- she thought it was ‘Creepy and Awesome!’ She loves it. Keep it up! The only thing that she said she didn’t like was the woman presenter. My daughter didn’t really think the lady was needed because, ‘all she really did was repeat what the guy said and point out the obvious.’ I thought that his podcast was fab! Well done..Score: 4/5

Addictive and well producedWould be 5 stars but recently they’ve started splitting stories over 2 episodes every time - the fluff and filler in these is a bit frustrating, less pacy compared to their earlier episodes.

Odd..The stories are interesting, but would be much easier to sit through without all the dramatisation and weird (and frankly quite bad) re-enactments with voice actors who can’t seem to fake a scream. It’s a shame because I’d love to listen to the accounts of each event, but I just can’t deal with the combination of the over dramatic narration and the bad voice acting. Wouldn’t recommend, but I suppose some people seem to enjoy the above..Score: 2/5

MehDecent stories, always interesting narration by the two hosts, but hearing about a murder in London, involving exclusively British people, being told with (apparently) hired in American actors is just.... poor.

Good but voice acting takes away.Voice acting is in American accent but talks like the person it’s meant to be or try’s to. Especially Easey Street that old woman is horrible lol. Why put dialogue if not sure what was said? Seems silly and seems two hosts has to have different theories at the end.

Loving itLoving this podcast so far! Only started listening to it today and currently on the phantom killer part 2, I like how they tell it as a story and make it a bit more fun that what it actually is. The only downside and why I only gave 4 stars is that the stories are split up into 2 or more parts of about 30 minutes, so I find myself in the middle of doing something and having to stop to put on the next episode, I’d find it a lot better if they put all the parts together into one that’s 1+ hour long rather then the 2 or 3 30 minute ones..Score: 4/5

Let it grow on youBeen a Parcast listener for a year and a half and only recently managed to get into Unsolved. Tried it back when I first became aware of Parcast and couldn’t enjoy it... however now I think it’s their most interesting show; the structuring of the narrative is clever, playing on the human need for closure. You’ll start off like “there’s no way of knowing who did this” but pieces will fall into place and you’ll end up having a prime suspect (most of the time). It takes more than one case to get into it but trust me it’s worth it - going newest to oldest will make that easier. The acting gets panned in some of the reviews but I see it as somewhat necessary, partly due to the incomplete nature of what we’re hearing about. It’s no coincidence they still have it as of writing this, despite the fact it was removed from Serial Killers a while ago. I urge you to give this a listen and you may see it how I do..Score: 5/5

Lose the DramatizationsIf I were to rate this podcast solely on its hosts, I'd give it a five star rating. Despite reading a script (usually filled with errors) Carter and Wenndy are wonderful, never sounding like they're reading from a script. The problem is the overacting in the unnecessary dramatizations; I can be listening to the facts and then have to sit through something that tries to evoke old radio dramas, forgetting that there's a reason that this type of dramatization doesn't exist any longer. Thankfully, they stopped trying to use local accents in these scenes - the faux Italian and Southern accents in the Axe Murderer of New Orleans episodes were so bad that they bordered on racism. These scenes are chock full of cliches - every detective has to have a gruff voice, as does every abusive parent. Please - get rid of these "actors.".Score: 3/5

Two host nightmareI really wanted to enjoy this one but I just couldn’t get over two hosts basically finishing each other‘s sentences! It is very distracting and kills the flow of storytelling.

Exploitative, Salacious, Unethical, Opinionated.Not only is this salacious and speculative story telling, at times it is just plain wrong. In episode 84 for example the hosts offer their opinion as to who murdered Arlis Perry: “Although we entertain other scenarios, we both agree Arlis was the target of a cult or other Satanist organisation.” Of course you do because this is the most titillating scenario. But it’s wrong. Arlis was murdered by the security guard. I’m aware this episode was produced before the crime was solved but it speaks to these hosts desire for lascivious content over facts. Please keep your opinions to yourself and stop disrespecting the victims and their families they are real people not characters in your fantasies. Although the production values are reasonable the dramatisation of events is in bad taste, the dialogue in the scripted reenactments is fanciful and cringe worthy, they treat victims like characters in a midday movie. If you’re interested in factual true crime investigations ‘Trace Evidence’ is a far superior podcast, better researched with a sense of moral responsibility. I’m sure there are countless others but this isn’t one of them..Score: 1/5

InterestingI really like this podcast especially how the end of the episodes have the hosts say their opinions on who did it. I'm listening to episode 53 at the moment and it's possible that the alphabet murders could have been done by more than one person, because of how different Carmen's case was.

Just plain bad.Why are people allowed to broadcast this rubbish? There should be some kind of karmic fine for awfully researched and distastefully presented stuff like this. In addition, they need to pay more attention to two things (that stood out) - 1. AMBIENCE. Setting the tone/mood, particularly via background music is of paramount importance. Their choices leave a lot to be desired. For example, listening to the Beaumont Children felt like it was light entertainment to them with the chirpy theme of their mood music. I know this case very well. I lived around the corner from the Beaumonts. My parents knew their parents. It’s not a chirpy event to me. 2. CHARACTERISATION They really need to be careful about how far over the mark they step with what THEY think a person was like as they frequently get this wrong. Again, with a case I know well, I can confidently dismiss the way the Beaumonts were portrayed. I found this so off the mark, it was offensive. They also missed key notes of the case that would have added much needed weight to their presentation but surprisingly they didn’t. Which leads me to think they don’t actually know anything about the cases they’re podcasting but reading from a researcher’s script.

Must-tryI was looking for an alternative to music to listen to whilst walking, and these are perfect. I’ve always been fascinated by true crime and with two young kids I don’t have much of a change to read. I never even thought the ‘dramatising’ could be a problem until I read other reviews. Personally I think it helps visualising the events and makes it far more interesting than simply retelling the facts and gives it the feel of an audio book.
