Down The Hill: The Delphi Murders Podcast Reviews

Could be great...presenters need much less airtimeThis is a great story and could have been told well by Wondery or a better production house. The interviews are good and would be enough to move the story along and keep the interest and suspense. Sadly for this podcast the presenters seem to think we want to hear their opinions and their repetitive, boring dronings’s totally unnecessary, detracts from the story and starts to feel like a vanity project rather than them telling an important story. With editing (removal of all “writers room” rubbish) and less repetition this could be great as the interviewees are so heartfelt and comprehensive that the story is really brought to life!.Score: 4/5

Deep diveThis case has bugged me for ages the info that is in the podcast may be slow paced for those who like the one hour and it’s done CI ID Oxygen style documentaries. However, as someone who has consumed as much media as I can on this case this is priceless. I would consider this a deep dive into every detail and there is very good presentation and am looking forward to the next episodes. I really hope Libby and Abby get their justice soon. Heartbreaking.Score: 5/5

Don’t listen to the criticismI don’t understand why this podcast has had bad reviews. I found it really informative and the presenters were easy to listen to and didn’t dramatise it in any way. I would highly recommend listening and I only hope there will be more episodes in the future as the case develops..Score: 5/5

Interesting case but not suitable for a podcastThe case itself is interesting, albeit obviously tragic. The issue is that for some inexplicable reason the police have released very little information about the crime to the public, so the production team spend the majority of the episodes either pointlessly speculating or repeating themselves. If I were the family or friends of the deceased, I would be incredibly frustrated at the local police and their chosen strategy. At which point will they release everything they have. Unsurprisingly their plans ‘A’ and ‘B’ haven’t worked at all..Score: 2/5

Repetitive, over-long and ultimately pointlessThis is a disturbing and intriguing murder that deserves to be investigated and sensitively reported. Unfortunately this podcast does a very poor attempt at doing that. Basic facts are repeated throughput the episodes, often presented as if they are new when the listener has already heard them. The presenters don’t appear to be following a script; they just state whatever comes to mind with no apparent insight or reflection. At one point, they just straight up guess what they think has happened. As a listener, you don’t feel that they offer any viewpoint or knowledge that you couldn’t get yourself. A couple of times, the questions to the law enforcement officers border on offensive. Asking them why the didn’t seal the crime scene or didn’t find the girls on the first night are pointless questions. It’s obvious that their main concern was trying to find the girls alive and that it was a large, dense area. The officers were more polite than I would have been when answering those questions. Ultimately I listened to all episodes out of respect for the victims, their families and the law enforcement officers. They all deserved a better podcast than this one..Score: 1/5

Self indulgent and repetitiveI’ve listened to a lot of true crime podcasts and this one is the worst one so far. It feels like it could have been done in two episodes, but the presenters were desperate to make it into a series, so just repeat themselves and ask the same questions etc over and over. Am stopping after 4 episodes. They also go on and on about the police not revealing more information and it feels like they’re more concerned about their podcast content rather than the crime actually getting solved. Very self indulgent..Score: 2/5

RepetitiveInteresting story but it’s very repetitive and slow at times. I can zone out for 15 minutes and have missed nothing vital. I have listened to the first episodes so far and feel like I learned most of what I know about the case from the trailer, so to drag it out across 3 episodes seems unnecessary.

Boring, Repetitive RubbishI stuck with this til half way through episode 7, just background noise while I worked.

Too many episodes!This could probably have been a good 'one-off', hour long podcast, but to try and s-t-r-e-t-c-h a case with so few details, and barely any physical evidence, into eight episodes is being overly ambitious, and it inevitably becomes tedious to hear the same thing repeated over and over! There are also far too many 'voices' taking part, making it difficult to keep track of who's who..Score: 1/5

Awful. Fire the presenters.This is AWFUL. The presenters are AWFUL. They act as if they are these super-smart, super-intuitive investigative journalists but they just keep repeating the information that a first-hand witness has just said. They dissect things like they’re going to reveal something new to us and never do, because it’s just repetitive. They keep going on about the police not revealing certain things and yet they know - as all of us do by now in the True Crime World - that there are certain things that the police can’t say or it will compromise the investigation. Or even COULD - surely that isn’t what they want! To pry some information out as a scoop that could then jeopardise them ever being able to prosecute someone? There are tons of reviews of this podcast and most of them concur - this is terrible. What a shame. If it had been edited differently, had a narration rather than this faux discussion between the presenters, then it would be heartfelt, decent and interesting. I can’t believe I’ve got to episode 8. I’m done. And if you’ve not started it yet, I’d advise you don’t waste your time. Or just listen to episode 1 and know that you’re getting this same information in the same annoying way week after week and it’s just not worth your while. These presenters shouldn't be allowed near a microphone and I can just imagine how bad their other journalism is. How are they working for such a prestigious news outlet? Jeez..Score: 1/5

A tragic crime described in a well produced podcastA fantastic, in depth podcast. Really enjoying listening to this on my drive to work. Lots of information and it is very well produced.

Poor reporting and interviews of officers...I found myself getting irritated by the reporting and interviewing of the police officers in this podcast and the officers themselves. The reporters had an opportunity to probe deeper into the investigation and to critique their subjects post interview and they didn’t, as it is all very sensitive and the officers play up this fact as they are clearly not adept at coping with this type of crime. It sounds like the town of Delphi hasn’t had a lot of pre-meditated murders, with the officers stating the suspect must feel remorse for what he has done, I honestly don’t think the officer has a clue about the psychology behind a pre planned murder, people have remorse for running someone over or a crime of passion but not this. The suspect is clearly in his late 40s to 50s, it appears his right hand is raised in his pocket which tells me he is holding a gun concealed within his pocket. He would have used that to threaten the poor girls to go down the hill. The age range of between 18-40 shows how lacking in skill this police department is. How the poor girls died had been discovered and put on the internet, it also should have been released early in the investigation as the weapon used in the strangulation could have been seen in the suspects home by someone. This could have also been committed by two men, just because one is in the video doesn’t mean there wasn’t another actually down the hill. I am glad this podcast has been made to put the story out there but it’s poorly done, but at least for the family’s sake it will draw more attention and more people who have a knack for investigative journalism..Score: 1/5

Tragic, fascinating and respectfulFirstly, my prayers and thoughts go out to the families of Abby and Libby and also to law enforcement officers that have to deal with this crime. I think this podcast is amazing and very respectful to everyone involved in this horrendous crime. The case is fascinating as well as tragic. It is clear that everyone involved has been so truly moved by this case. I believe the fact that no further details of the crime have been released, shows respect to the victims and the families.

It’s going to be a long haul as we already know there is no closure to this case. There are also too many narrators/presenters; and the different roles they play are not clear (is one the host? One the expert? What is the third guy for?) so it’s just pointless recaps/introductions of things you already have heard about and they know as much as each other so it’s not incremental..Score: 3/5

Fascinating story, but...The case that this podcast covers has all of the makings of a great true crime mystery, the interviews with the family of the victims and investigators are great. If they had stuck with those interviews and filled in the gaps with scripted narration, this could be a 5 star podcast. But for some reason the hosts feel the need to jump in and add off the cuff conversation about what they think about the case and what it was like to cover it. It immediately takes you out of the story and rarely adds any relevant information. The male host actually asks “what was the vibe of the press conference” at one point to the other host. They should have saved all these interstitial conversations for a bonus episode. It’s a shame because the story itself is fascinating and tragic. I still listened all the way through and enjoyed it, minus all of the “writers room” conversations.Score: 3/5

Nothing new hereThis 9 episode series offers nothing! No on-site as to why, how, who, nothing. One of the best produced and worst executed. There are so many good true crime podcasts out there don’t waste your time with this one. At the end of episode 9 you know no more than from the end of episode one..Score: 1/5

Great Start Then PlateausI originally watched the 2 hr special on HLN a few days ago and was intrigued enought to start the podcast... the first 3 episodes are on point and had same momentum as the special but after that, its repeated information (due to the lack of it) and I agree with some other reviews that the hosts are putting themselves too much on their opinonated pedestals with the unnecessary, dramatic commentary. This could have been 4 well quality episodes. Its good to hear more family interviews and did appreciate some insight from the people of Delphi and LE on the case that you dont see in the special. OTHERWISE, its clear why they made a 2 hour special of this.. intriguing story but needed some editing to create a full captivating picture not an empty net of story. Debunking some theories along the way could have carried this whole podcast to not plateau in circles. Like, if they were searching in that area all night how were they not found sooner only a Quarter mile away? What kind of rumors did Delphi start believing to be true about the case? What did schools/parents do to start protecting the students? Did they ever start surveillance on the bridge after this tragedy? So many questions that could have given this story more life!.Score: 2/5

EhhhThis podcast starts out mediocre and spirals toward painful. They create metaphors and proceed to squeeze every drop out of them. It’s frustrating to listen to the host say something multiple times in different ways, as if they want to make sure we are throughly stunned by their thoughts.

The discussion can be expected, but I feel for this case it was out of place and felt uncomfortable.

Commentary from the professionals was informative - Finding out about the multiple ‘signatures’ was a great detail that I hadn’t heard before.
