"Small Town Dicks is a hell of a unique show. It’s a cool crew that allows the show to bring on the actual detectives from the cases they explore, giving the show a sense of gravitas and realism rarely found in the true crime podcasting world."

Claudia McCarron • PodcastReview.org Jan 31, 2020

"Small Town Dicks’ willingness to dive into the murky territory of detectives’ thoughts and feelings, their prejudices and deep compassion, shows how closely emotional connection to a case and successful investigation are related. By showing the critical role emotion plays in competent investigative work, victim advocacy, and bringing alleged criminals to trial, Small Town Dicks reveals that the reasons law enforcement succeed and fail are often only one gut feeling or misplaced bias away from each other. The fact that these stories come from the mouths of the detectives themselves, at a time when such admission and self-reflection is all too rare in the conversations surrounding U.S. law enforcement, is a powerful formula and call to action that Small Town Dicks uses to its fullest advantage."
