Sword and Scale

4 star

Residents of the Marpole neighborhood in Vancouver, British Columbia suddenly found themselves double-checking their deadbolts when an unidentified killer senselessly murdered two valuable members of the community. 64-year-old Dianna Mah-Jones, and her husband, 68-year-old Richard Jones were discovered in their home on September 26th, 2017. It was a massacre inside, one that law enforcement officials would never forget.

Sword and Scale Podcast Reviews

Fascinating cases...cringy hostThe cases are completely enthralling and the researchg is excellent. However the host is crying-worth, judgy adn sulky and it's a real shame because this is probably the most interesting true-crime podcast out there...less personal input and childish commentary, and more content please...and it would easily be a 5 out of 5 rating..Score: 3/5

Meh, it’s okay I guessI’ve listened to S&S for a few years now but only when I’ve exhausted all the other better true crime podcasts. S&S has some interesting stories and I like that they use interrogation audio - although sometimes it’s so inaudible that’s it’s pointless, but the host is arrogant, rude and overly opinionated. When I first started listening to S&S, I read a review that said “it’s the daily mail of podcasts” and it’s not wrong. So, I will probably continue to listen with apathy and hope Mike’s inflated ego doesn’t get in the way of the stories..Score: 2/5

The latest..........Hi Mike - I’ve just been listening to your latest episode, the story of Mike Williams. Over the years I’ve heard this story several times before but never have I heard it told in such detail and with such compassion, especially for Mike’s mum Cheryl. Quite often I listen to podcasts while I do jobs around the house or to help me get to sleep. Not this time though. I was absolutely glued to every word. Not just the words, but the feelings behind the words. Great job Mike on a heart breaking story. I’m an old fan of yours and will continue to listen. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👍🏻.Score: 5/5

But the hosts constant rambling about feminism are so annoying and off putting. In some episodes it even leaks into him blaming female victims.

Although I still don’t think he is quite as bad as he is often made out to be, he still can’t help but spoil this podcast with some really stupid takes and moronic opinions. There are dozens of examples to be found throughout the episodes but I was pushed over the edge and prompted to leave a review by the Kevin Gregson episode and the sheer, astounding irony of listening to Mike, an American, sneer at and ridicule the infinitely more progressive and successful Canadian justice system throughout.

What happened Mike?Man- this podcast used to be the holy grail for me. Hands down the very best of true crime. This past two years though? My goodness. Mike, what happened to you? First of all, you clearly hate doing this show. Look I get it, passions change. It’s cool to move on. Maybe you should just let this podcast go and try something new. Every episode you sound angry, bitter, resentful and just quite simply over it. When there was a new episode of Sword and Scale in my library, I used to drop everything to listen to it. I was a patreon, and I devoured every episode in awe of your research and story telling.

Low key homophobiaI’ve listen to a few episodes now and there is a definite homophobic/misogynistic/transphobic vibe to some of Mike’s comments. For example, I believe ep 186. “Do I detect a lisp?” is his segue into talking about one of the suspect’s sexual ‘experimentation’, which *is* also later referred to as a “lifestyle” by the host. Another example, ep 187. When talking about the murderer and rapist Brian Cooper confessing to his mother on the phone, he uses an example of a kid coming out to his parent as gay or trans, as a compatible conversation. As though the two are both terrible things, but opposite ends of terrible. Not to mention his flagrant disregard for gender identity, which he casually flips off in the same segment by basically saying gender pronoun choice is a trend. That’s less than three episodes in. The show is very well researched and put together, but the host’s prejudice shines through on social issues to a point where he’s treading the boring, and incredibly ill-founded trope that so called ‘liberalism’ and the rights of LGBTQ2S+ people are somehow part and parcel of the degeneration of society.

Open ended with no set end date, and due to the nature of the podcast, there is no shortage of episode topics. If you need a podcast to binge listen to, look no further. If you need a podcast for your daily commute, look no further. If you need a podcast to listen to while home alone, hope you don’t scare easily. Thanks to Mike, for continuing to push through the vocal minority and finding ways to keep the show going. 👏🏻.Score: 5/5

Waste of TimeI listen to EVERYTHING true crime. From highly polished to start ups with less than perfect sound, Sword and Scale is time you’ll never be able to get back. The victim blaming is off the charts. The use of tape and violent, vivid descriptions exist because the writing is pretty terrible. I unsubscribed before I found out what a misogynistic bully Mike Boudet is. He represents everything that is wrong with the entitled white asshat.

I would love to commend Mike and the team on their ability to find all the nitty gritty details, including 9-1-1 calls, talking to detectives and people directly related to the stories, as well as painting the victims perfectly in order to share their life and stories. I feel like Mike is directly talking to me and telling me a story effortlessly. I’m not sure why people hate on him, I have yet to figure that out.

Boudet, no-one for the deadInstead he spends the last 20 mins or so of the latest episode (181) defending a young white guy who murdered them. He features the guy’s mother with the classic line, “that’s not him”, as in her son is not the violent type. She also claims there’s no way her son would have used a slur to describe them, because “we don’t say that word”. To be clear, this is a 1 out of 5 for this episode. It ends up being a ridiculous way to frame a discussion of rehabilitation vs punishment in the Florida/US penal system. Fact is two men died, but Boudet got no-one on his show to speak for them and neither did he do so himself. This ep is a ham-fisted attempt to deal with the complex and emotive issue of mental health in the criminal justice system. In the end Boudet presents a biased argument for why this nice white boy (nice, when he’s on his meds) should not be treated so mean for a heinous crime. Some other Sword and Scale episodes are fine, this one just left me steaming mad at Boudet and this entitled mother. Sure she can speak for her son, but neither of them had a word for the two dead men who are the ultimate victims in this case. A 1 out of 5 fail indeed..Score: 1/5

Great podcast buuuttttI have listened to nearly every episode of this podcast and regard it as being high caliber and well-deserving of its high rating. However, this most recent episode, 171, left me feeling slighted. As a Canadian, I found the episode to be quite dismissive of the Canadian police service. The little quip about our Mounties and their “silly hats,” was unnecessary. The mispronunciation of Regina as well as referring to Canada as Canadia when scoffing at the mental health policies within our judicial system came off as very ignorant. Regarding the Vince Li case, the mental health system had failed him. He had sought help over 5 years and although symptoms of schizophrenia were observed by many, little was done to help him. He was discharged after ten years of treatment. The podcast made it sound like he walked free shortly after.

Excellent podcast buttttI echo parts of the sentiment posted in the review that I’m referring to in the title. However, I feel that the growth that has occurred over the last six years needs to be acknowledged. The Vince Li case, episode 31, was blatant fear mongering of schizophrenia. In particular, I really cringed at the last few sentences of the episode. Vince Li had paranoid schizophrenia, which only makes up a small percentage of the population with schizophrenia. I’m not just being PC - promoting this fear based message on this huge platform is part of the problem. But as an avid listener, I can hear the growth that’s occurred over the course of the seasons.

Sword and Scale Podcast Episodes

Episode 189

Residents of the Marpole neighborhood in Vancouver, British Columbia suddenly found themselves double-checking their deadbolts when an unidentified killer senselessly murdered two valuable members of the community. 64-year-old Dianna Mah-Jones, and her husband, 68-year-old Richard Jones were discovered in their home on September 26th, 2017. It was a massacre inside, one that law enforcement officials would never forget.

Episode 188

On New Year's Day 2008, 24-year-old Meredith Emerson went missing after setting out on a hike up Blood Mountain in Union County, Georgia. Search teams combed Blood Mountain for days in an effort to find the missing hiker, but they never did. Meredith was not on Blood Mountain. She was fifty miles away, held captive by a deranged serial killer.

Episode 187

21-year-old Alisha Bromfield had it all. She had a supportive friend group, a family who loved her, a nearly completed bachelor’s degree, and a baby on the way. When she didn’t arrive home from an out-of-state wedding on Sunday, August 19th, 2012 as planned, friends and family soon learned that someone in her life did not have her best interest at heart.

Episode 186

In October of 2005, empty nesters Dennis and Norma Woodruff were found shot and stabbed to death in their Texas home. With a lack of physical evidence and leads, police fixated on the couple’s 19-year-old son Brandon as their killer when they found out he was in debt, flunking out of college, and secretly making gay porn. Was Brandon really the murderer, or were there other suspects roaming free? Was this a case of character assassination on young Brandon, or was he truly a cold-blooded killer?

Episode 185

We’re back to bring you the conclusion of the mysterious staged death of Natasha Waalen. In order to get the full story, we encourage you to go back and listen to part 1 before diving into this episode.When we left off, Natasha’s former boyfriend, Ryan Boland had been arrested for her murder. But, police had a hunch that Ryan didn’t act alone and all signs pointed towards his hotheaded, weapon-obsessed brother, Tim Boland. The Boland Brothers had grown up with the world at their fingertips, but they were both on dark downward paths. Had they finally gone too far? Soon all of Anoka County would know the true nature of these entitled, manipulative brothers and what they did to Natasha Waalen.

Episode 184

When 29-year-old Natasha Waalen was found dead next to her dirt bike, police assumed it had been a terrible accident. They were wrong. Natasha had been murdered and her death was sloppily covered up to look like a motorcycle crash. Who would want this young mother, acupuncturist, and university graduate dead? Fingers soon pointed towards the father of her child and former boyfriend, Ryan Boland as the police uncovered the violent, questionable past behind Ryan’s good ol’ boy facade. But the town soon questioned if he had acted alone.

Episode 183

On Sunday June 28th, 2015, Dr. Teresa Sievers returned home early from a family vacation only to find she was not alone in the house. In the aftermath of a brutal murder, it appeared on the surface to be a robbery—but no valuables were taken, and no clues were left behind except for a bloody, hairy hammer. Uncovering the truth would take months, and involve a conspiracy that crossed multiple states.

Kim Dixon - Raw Interview

We sometimes get things wrong. In this exclusive interview with Kim Dixon, sister to Zachary Penna's victim from Episode 181, she joins us to tell us why.

Episode 182

In December of 2000, 31-year-old real estate appraiser Mike Williams went missing while duck hunting on Lake Seminole in Jackson County, Florida. The initial belief was that Mike had drowned and that alligators had eaten his body. Seventeen years would go by before Florida law enforcement could prove that something even more horrifying and nefarious happened to Mike Williams.
