Critic Reviews

Liz Barnsley - Liz Loves Books - Sep 21, 2020

"Crime Beat is a podcast absolutely full of human stories, looking at cases Nancy has covered told in one or occasionally two parts – every single episode is hauntingly compelling and utterly addictive. I have been in tears several times and listened to one episode after another until I was all caught up. Nancy Hixt is one of the best out there."

Amy Wilkinson - Pop Sugar - Jan 31, 2020

"Canadian journalist Nancy Hixt remains one of the most humane true-crime podcasters out there. The veteran Global News reporter avoids sensationalism in favor of giving voice to the often-overlooked victims, many of whom she’s interviewed numerous times throughout her career — meaning they trust her to tell their story and to tell it well.
