DocumentarySociety & CultureTrue Crime

Sword and Scale is an internet radio show and website covering the dark underworld of crime and the criminal justice system’s response to it. The first episode launched January 1st, 2014 and feature stories of murder, abduction, rape, and even more bizarre forms of crime. It’s the purest form of true-crime where the raw uncensored audio tells the story. Everything from 911 calls to court testimony, interviews with victims and sometimes with perpetrators give listeners a 360 degree look at the seedy underbelly of human nature and so-called civilized society. Told from an everyman's point of view, Sword and Scale goes beyond the news clips and the sensationalist headlines to hold up a mirror to the audience and ask, "Is it us versus them? Or are we just like 'them' too?" Sword and scale proves that the worst monsters are real.

  • True Crime at it’s best

    I really do love this podcast a lot. I like the stories that are chosen and the way it’s presented. I even have put up with the not so great commentary for every single episode from the start. I have recently gotten really irritated by the “woah is me” comments in the show made by the podcaster because he gets hate comments for the inappropriate commentary. I do think the podcast is good enough to listen to regardless, you just have to really tune him out.
