Too longDateline always does a great job. Love Keith Morrison’s delivery. But they stretched this one out too long. Could have been done is a single episode of the regular Dateline podcast. Some audio clips like the conversation between the 2 women while in holding were played at least a half dozen times throughout the podcast.Score: 4/5

ExcellentWhile Keith Morrison may come across as overly dramatic at times, he’s an amazing story teller and holds the audience in his hands throughout the entire podcast. A true Canadian!.Score: 5/5

The thing about Helen and OlgaKeith Morrison is wonderful and clear as always. The story is interesting and well told. BUT the inserted audio clips are so poor quality. Very frustrating as you cannot hear what is being said, especially between Helen & Olga which would be so interesting. I am surprised with all the expertise sited at end of postcard, those experts would allow this poor quality audio to be published..Score: 2/5

The CloserOf course, I love Keith Morrison ( who doesn’t!). When I started listening I knew I had heard this story. It came to me that is was an episode of The Closer with Kyra Sedgewick. Great to hear the real story and shocking at the same time..Score: 5/5

Long and drawn out with sexist undertonesThis could have been condensed into 2-3 episodes. Everyone interviewed were older men and they kept referring to Helen and Olga as “girls” or “little old ladies.” They described them as being some of the worst criminals ever. Obviously killing 2 men is awful (to say the least), but there are far worse crimes, especially against children. I wonder how the producer’s gender bias played a role in how they told this story. Overall they seemed shocked that two “old ladies” could be smart enough to pull off insurance fraud for as long as they did and sinister enough to murder someone. I’m not surprised, but I’m not sexist. Also podcasts filled with cheesy phrases/comments like “the night was as dark as a California merlot” said in a long deep voice. Not listening to another Dateline podcast. They should stick to TV..Score: 1/5

Distracting music, a lot of fluffDateline always gets hold of fascinating stories, I just wish Keith Morrison would reduce about 15% of his fluff. And the music is very distracting. This seems to be a trend with dateline podcasts which is disappointing.Score: 3/5

Engrossing!Another well produced, well written story from the folks at Dateline…and Keith M knows how to turn a phrase to give you goosebumps! I missed this story on the tv broadcast but no need for any visuals…I felt the drama..Score: 5/5

American Greed episode is much betterThis podcast drags the story on by including too much unnecessary detail. It also gives too much credit to Webster, who was critical to catching the ladies but definitely not the only critical player as this podcast seems to convey. I’m also not a fan of the overtly dramatic tone the narrator uses. But that’s just a matter of preference..Score: 3/5

No one tells ‘em like Keith Morrison!It’s Keith Morrison buttering your very soul with his smooth, sultry voice, ushering you through the twists and turns of yet another diabolical tale of malice and murder.

Not in the fan clubI don’t watch dateline, but I listen to many podcasts. I’m used to hearing the delivery style of many different hosts, but I barely made it through another series this guy hosted before. Maybe his television background encourages this manner of exaggerated and dramatized narration, but I find it so jarring and distracting from the story itself. I know the story, and I find it interesting but I’m so turned off by his delivery that I won’t be listening past the first episode. Does he talk like this in daily conversation??.Score: 2/5

Great podcastAnd sure, they are guilty, not contesting that. But I find it laughable that people seemed so concerned for this people AFTER they died! Where were this crying family members of those men while they were alive? Crocodile tears the lot of them! We as a family care for our family members that are in a rough place, we have housed them, feed them, helped them get back on their feet, all in different states of mental, health, and debt issues. We’ve even done this for friends. Why are these people crying to know where is the body of so and so? You could know this is you had taken care of them while they were alive! Or at least had a relationship with them. I see this so often, that man more than likely would have died alone in the street, and they wouldn’t have known for years what happened to them..Score: 4/5

Podcasts Narrated by Keith Morrison are THE BEST!!!I am a huge Dateline junkie, but I’ve never heard the story of Helen and Olga until I binge listened to the podcast a few days ago. Keith Morrison just does the best job ever narrating these stories, getting all the small details, and putting them all together. I think this story is absolutely sickening that there are people out there that prey on individuals that already have had a hard enough life living on the streets. These people are broken inside. Majority of the time, from the demographics I’ve researched in the past, the homeless are there mostly bc they had an addiction they couldn’t kick and they literally lost everything along the way. At the same time, anyone that has been on the streets long enough probably would jump at the opportunity to have free room and board and meals brought to them everyday. Having someone that lets them keep a few dollars in their pockets. Helen and Olga knew these facts and they preyed upon the ones they knew would be the easiest targets. Ones that wouldn’t ask a lot of questions despite the fact the ladies were asking them so many questions to get the life insurance forms filled correctly. I think it is horrendously unfair that Helen took the fall for both of them when they were both equally involved. Anyways probably the fastest I’ve ever binged a podcast it was sooo good. I literally listened to the entire thing straight through for about 6 hours. Highly recommend that you give this podcast a shot as well, but especially if you are a true crime junkie like me!!!.Score: 5/5
