Dirty John Reviews
Another great podcast from the LA Times and wondery. After one I am hooked again!! 😁
Darling Deb tangled with Dirty John and he met his match with Terrifying Tara. What a story!!!! Just mesmerizing.~~Naughty Nicole~~
It’s a somewhat interesting story, but starring generally unlikeable people, told in a jagged format by an overwhelming boring narrator.
I pretty much listened to this podcast all the way through! I’ll say though that Debra Newell’s Mom is someone who’ll anger you- she is naive to the point of delusional and has the surprising habit of taking the sides of both her daughters’ abusive husbands, even going as far as saying she loves them- they are such swell guys! I hope Arlene pays for her crimes against her own daughters! Of course, barely mentions the impact the abuse had on her daughters and her grandkids. Little wonder that Debra, for all her intelligence & success as a businesswoman, throws her kids under the bus in order to be with her obviously manipulative & criminal man! Her mother did the same to her and her sister, of course.
Season 1 was absolutely insane and the reporter had an easy voice to listen too. I can’t wait for more updates!! Season 2 was boring but okay. Season 3 was awesome!! The reporter had first hand accounts and was easy to listen too. Season 4 is interesting but the reporter has an irritating voice, it’s just sooo slow! It’s like he is trying to tell a scary story at a fire, just talk normal!!
I listened to this after watching the Netflix series and documentary. Great for true crime listeners. Had great content including interviews with people involved.
I listened to this whole thing in one day. This was so amazingly well done, and I was literally screaming at certain parts because of the drama and the suspense. This was amazing!
Least favorite true crime podcast. I understand that you can’t fully control who your sources are when trying to organically unfold a story. But for Pete’s sake, give the speakers a tip or two. The youngest daughter and her boyfriend are SO HARD TO LISTEN TO. the girl has issues with maintaining a consistent pitch and it sounds disgusting. Same with her freeloading boyfriend. You’re 24 and living at home, questioning who your mom has sleeping over. Ughhhh her voice.
This podcast hooked me like Serial & S-Town did a few years ago! Really makes you think about trusting that gut “this is not a good person” feeling.
Trying to get past the dimness, vanity, and ignorance of the women in this family (how do you work in healthcare and not know an anesthesiologist is a doctor, not a nurse?), the writers just didn't delve into the really interesting parts of the case at all. Really low on the list of true crime podcast out there. Save your valuable listening time for something better-there's no shortage out there.
It is still shocking to believe that this story was based on real events. The interviews with each of the family members made it so much more engaging and impactful. You really get a better understanding about how everything unfolded from the very beginning when John entered their lives. The story flowed incredibly well and the narration was clear and easy to follow. First podcast I have ever listened too and I am not disappointed!
Frustrating and sad but riveting!
One of my very favorite of all podcasts! Brilliant job! Love the voices
Love this story truly ground breaking podcast listening
I’ve seen a few reviews giving low stars due to the reviewer being Australian, and not being able to deal with the narrator and daughters voices. I’m also Australian and had absolutely no problem with it. Dirty John is a fascinating, tragic, eye opening story and you’d be missing out if you let something as silly as the hosts voice turn you off.
Chuck Norris's belly button does'nt collect lint, it collects steel wool.
Great series loved it
The podcast is brilliant. Incredibly gripping, once you start listening you can’t stop but the ads are annoying. Yeah you can fast forward to avoid them but still ads, argh.

Thanks for the gripping series, prefer this podcast to the Netflix movie!
Storytelling could've flowed better.
That’s it, I can’t say any more! So good! So addictive!!!

Started listening to this as I was boarding for a long haul flight. Listened to the whole thing from end to end, without stopping which was NOT my intention! Everyone I recommend it to loves it.
So good I’m binge listening GB
I found it to be like a trashy “true-crime” tv show. Predictable and a bit dull but I guess easy listening? Might suit other people’s tastes more. GB
A compelling listen if you can get past the fact that a women would choose a man over her kids even with all the proof you would need to run a mile and never look back GB
