Not your usual True Crime Podcast - must hear

Special treat, not just the mainstream stories

I am so happy I came across this true crime podcast. Annie and Johanna are super funny without being disrespectful towards the cruel and eary topics they discuss and I find their voices to be extremely comforting to listen to. They compliment one another really well and you would never believe they never actually physically met! What I love here is that they not only cover the same old cases literally every true crime talks about, but also show international cases I have never heard of before. The sound quality is astounding aswell, given the fact that they aren’t physically together in a room recording it.
Just a 5 star from me! Keep up the good work girls!
