What Happened to RCP?!
This was one of the first podcasts I really grew to love. The topics were engaging, I enjoyed the "expert" analysis of Jim and Laura, and felt they brought something to true crime pods that most other hosts didn't: real life experience. However, over the last year the quality of episodes has severely declined. The conversations are more and more disengaged, almost forced - like Jim is just going through the motions to keep Lisa Z. pacified. The expert opinion that I used to enjoy so much has become stale and predictable - like Laura and Jim are trained parrots who only know a few select phrases. "Squak, squak, coercive control." Oh, how the mighty have fallen. #unsubscribed

Great Coverage, but Poor Podcast Etiquette
While I love the content covered in this podcast, Jim Clemente needs to work on his podcast etiquette. He talks over, interrupts, and patronizes his co-hosts (particularly Lisa Zambetti) in every episode. When his cohosts disagree with him, he becomes emotional and will bully and browbeat them into abandoning their points and falling quiet while he raves. He just *does not let them speak* if he doesn't agree with what they're saying. It's incredibly frustrating to listen to him when I otherwise enjoy the subject matter. I'd give this 5 stars if it weren't for Clemente's poor impulse control and his inability to handle civil disagreement from his cohosts.
Stop interrupting, Clemente, and let others have opinions even if they differ from your own. You are, in fact, capable of being wrong every now and again.

Laura Richards & Etiquette
I wanted to like this podcast so badly but I just can't with how obnoxious my two big gripes are.
1) Laura Richards repeats the same stuff every episode and is self-aggrandizing. Not everything goes back to domestic violence. Also, there is no need to bring up English law every moment when the crime happened in the US. Talk about the law relevant to the crime, not law in another country. Not sure why she is a co-host other than trying to seem "exotic / worldly". Really a one-trick pony. I'm sure she has done good things but we don't need a broken record every episode.
2) If someone else is talking, let them finish. Enough said.

Excellent, insightful, and in depth
I love the combination of true pros in criminal profiling with the true pros in crime procedural drama. The depth of detail and discussion for each case is awesome, and I love that they will span a single case across several eps. I look forward to them delving into cases beyond the obvious.
That said, I think Jim can sometimes be overbearing and dismissive of his co hosts, especially Lisa. Sometimes it feels less like give-and-take and more like a lecture based on opinion. THAT SAID, it's very much worth subscribing to.

Powerful and Motivating
As a survivor of domestic violence, I appreciate the focus on the victims of this podcast-especially the special attention to victims of domestic violence and stalking. As very few people actually understand the realities of these things, I love hearing it spelled out clearly for those who do not understand. So inspiring.

too many interruptions but good overall
Lisa is constantly talked over. Often the person speaking over her interrupts her to repeat things he has said. Lisa can rarely finish her thoughts because Jim will jump in and just begin talking louder and louder until she gives up. I bet this podcast would get even better rating if one of the people who contribute good ideas wasn't constantly being cut off mid thought.

Hearing about things from people who really know. I listen to a lot of crime pod casts but this one really stands out from the rest. The presenters have been there and have the experience and knowledge to really delve into the subjects
