I was like, what do I do in this situation? And then it got to the point where I just honestly started laughing at the situation. I was like, What more could go wrong here? Really? I've got no money, no service, I'm stuck in Lebanon. I don't even know my flight details because I couldn't even get onto the internet to check them. Yeah, so the flight was meant to be another four days away. And yeah, I was freaking out."

Criminal Domain

Really interesting but terrifying!

Just a big ad for Norton

Would be interested to hear the stories but this really just feels like an ad for Norton rather than a podcast.

Great content but hosts need a tweak

Love the stories but cringe at the over-dramatics of the male American host. I would prefer to hear the producer speak to the guest like in Tayla’s episode. The other two hosts just seem like surplus and over complicate things.
