Our Reviews

Love

Love you guys so much. The content and commentary is spot on. I love crime but I neeeed the comedy mixed in because I’m a Scorpio and my only sense of humor is dark.

Like catching up with friends

Every Monday I listen to NATCP and I feel like I am catching up with friends talking about crime and conspiracies over coffee.

LOVE THEM

It’s —-not another—- true crime podcast! It’s not the same as others (which I also like). This is TRULY like doing a rundown of a case with your friends sitting around. The hosts are great and hilarious! The fan base is as well.
