I’m blown away. Excellent content and presentation. I’m an avid podcast listener and support several. Having discovered this podcast, if I could only support one podcast- it would be this one. Thank you for critical, intelligent and interesting content.

Amazing find!

There are a lot of true crime podcasts but TZ adds a bit of social justice to the story. Not just for voyeurs. You will learn something here AND be mesmerized! Great voice, great quality podcast!

My new favorite

I came across TZ when he did a short story on the My Bloody Valentines show that included 14 different podcasters. TZ stood out to me and I enjoyed his voice and the way he told a story. I just finished the heartbreaking series about Dylan Redwine. I never cried when listening to a podcast (and I’ve heard it all) but the way TZ told the story of Dylan affected me in a way no other podcaster has. I can’t wait to listen to more.

How to MAKE a podcast

Dear creator, thank you. I am only on episode 2 of season 5! I’m going to finish and go to season 1 not listening to anything else until I have heard all five seasons. Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you for doing something that should have been done MANY YEARS AGO. You have to wonder how many people lost their spouse, parent, brother, sister, CHILD due to TRIGGER HAPPY ,IGNORANT, UNSTABLE people getting a power trip and taking ANYONE they believe they have the the authority to take on the trip with them. This creator WILL SOON BE on the top of the charts if you keep making podcasts like this one. Again …. Thank you!

Easily one of the best!

I just finished Season 5 about the death of Daniel Shaver and I highly recommend this podcast. It’s a very important story about how police are trained to use critical force and the role of police in society.

Great New Discovery

I found that this podcast was recommended in a podcast post. So I had a few minutes to spare. Began with Season 1. The host (s) have perfect volume and pleasant sounding voices. Well researched and presented in a flowing fashion, it’s wonderful for all of us who want to know every aspect of the crime!! Your very loyal fans want to hear more interesting cases !!

Premier Podcast

I heard about this podcast in a Reddit thread on r/True Crime so I decided to try it out. I was hooked by the first episode; initially it was the host’s voice that reeled me in, but it was the amazing research that went into this that set the hook. Also, the interlude music is amazing. It’s hip/ trippy and fits perfectly with this show.

Everything a true crime pod should be

Very well-researched with an informed, human approach. TZ provides concise and insightful perspectives. The seasons are exactly as long as they need to be, depending on the story. Other podcasts tend to add a lot of fluff episodes to get 20 pods out of the season. Not this one. There’s nowhere else I want to listen to real life, distributing tales of murder and delusion from the dark side.

A true gem

I absolutely love this podcast. The detail and research that goes into each episode is remarkable and I gladly support and recommend this. Each season has been excellent and I look forward to hearing about the Daniel Shaver case. I heard about this a couple of years ago and saw the police footage which made me sick and then outraged. We need to hold officers accountable when they murder civilians. Period. I hope that Daniel gets justice. Thank you for bringing light to this case and giving it a voice and thank you to the LEOs that protect and serve everyday and support reform.

Can’t stop!

I heard about this from True Consequences and listened to the psychopath phone call from the recent episodes then listened to the Spirit family massacre, then the Dylan Redwine season and now I’m on the Jesse Washington Waco season episode 2. I love the host- I wish I could get the bonus content (I’m not sure why we have to pay for better audio quality?) but I can’t afford to get patreon for every podcast I love! I definitely recommend this for the research, quality, straightforward delivery of the story without any banter, etc (I am ok with banter on certain pods) it’s a great format and different than other pods! Thanks for the content.

You can tell TZ strives to produce the best content. I love the format. TZ always picks interesting cases and clearly researches them thoroughly.

Season 3 review

Great show! I appreciate your attention to the inept politicians that could care less about children in the system and broken families.


Prefectly researched and amazing episodes. Way to go!!!!

Very welll done

I heard about this show when searching for a particular case. I started with the Dylan Redwine murder which is a tragic story in and of itself. As you can tell from the name of the podcast there is a lot of tape use from interviews, interrogations, etc. It takes real skill to put together in a cohesive storyline piecing all of this together. In addition our host has written his own material and formed his own opinions but does not push his agenda and is actually quite thoughtful. I am going to continue listening and tell others about it as well. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys true crime podcasts.

Wow just wow

I just found this podcast and started with season four. I cannot stop listening. This is so well researched, well presented, and completely engrossing, that I cannot recommend it enough. Great work. Exposing Senator Rick Scott for the atrocities he did to the department of children services in Florida was just mind boggling. Obviously going to listen to all of the seasons. Thank you for the great work. This is what a professional podcast host sounds like. This is what a great podcast is.

Great show so far

I’m on episode 1.5 and won’t stop listening until I’m caught up with all of the episodes.


I just started listening last night and I’m just about finished with all of the episodes and I joined their patreon. This is very well done and clearly impossible to stop listening to.

Really enjoying your podcast!

Just started listening this month and I am enjoying your podcast! Thank you!

Excellent podcast

His coverage of the Waco horror was excellent yet infuriating. Definitely not one story I have never heard over. Check out this podcast, u won’t be disappointed.

So Good!!!

Just started listening to this podcast and I’m hooked! I love the way TZ tells the stories, and the real recordings etc. of the people involved in the crimes.


Please post an email or contact form on your website. Show is awesome. I have some skills I could volunteer to make it incrementally better if interested.

So good!

Just found this podcast! So glad I did! If you like true crime then this is a great podcast to listen to! The host keeps you engaged and wanting to listen to more. Check it out!

Well researched 👏

This show is so well done. There are a ton of true crime podcasts out there, but this one stands out. The depth of detail they go through is impressive and the quality is awesome. Keep making more of these please!

Love this

Originally found the channel on YouTube, love the format and info

Great only one issue

This podcast is fantastic. The host is a great story teller and you can tell everything is well researched. My only issue is that this podcast seems to have no schedule for releasing new episodes. Sometimes you have to wait over a month for a new episode to be released and that makes it difficult to stay fully engaged. This podcast would be in my top three favorite true crime podcasts if there was an actual episode release schedule that I could rely on or if the host would at least release updates letting us know when the next episode is coming or letting us know why some episodes take over a month to be released. I have legitimately thought the podcast was on hiatus or something at some points because of the large gaps of time between episodes.

So glad I found this

This is truly a one of a kind podcast! I literally listened to all episodes the day I found it. His demeanor is pleasant and welcoming, very informational! I really love the live audio; it’s what makes this podcast different from the rest. I heard about this podcast from another one - just like you all I love me some true crime! He’s done in depth episodes of cases. He appreciates his fans and supporters and interacts with them. It’s like a little community. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!

One of a kind!

I’m a binger my nature. I find something, I binge it, and move on. Tapes from the Darkside hooked me with season one…with his voice, his research, the story I hadn’t heard yet, and the unique nature in which he presents the material. I binged season one, and season 2. I became a Patreon and I remain a Patreon while I impatiently wait for season 3 to be complete to binge that as well. So good, I’m a Patreon while not even actively listening. This guy deserves so much love!!

Super unique and well done!

Love this show so much! It’s super unique compared to other shows I listen to and that’s one of my favorite things about it. It’s also really well told and put together and TZ has a great voice for the show! Love the whole vibe.

Great podcast

I started listening a few months ago and right away felt drawn in to the story telling style that the host provides. I have since subscribed to the Patreon and love being a part of the community. He approaches horrific events with respect and offers an enjoyable listen at the same time.
