Fascinating delivered perfectly.

Jerri, your treatment of your audience as intelligent, but curious is refreshing! No constant trigger warnings as if you are a child (don’t listen to true crime if you’re easily triggered!) If there is a warning, it’s no nonsense and valid, but details are still delivered to those who want to hear and learn about the realities. Jerri’s interviews are insightful and she lets her peers speak without annoying interruptions, yet poses questions when needed. Such a natural style, it’s endearing. She lets her fascinating guests shine. Have listened to most, but just listened to Dan Craft and what an intriguing and intelligent man he is. Brutal honesty, however, as you pointed out he leaves us all with the gift of his life wisdom. Well done, a perfect podcast show, with little waffle around it.
I also commend you for leaving politics out of episodes!

Great podcast that’s changed my understanding of the American FBI

Coming from a family of cops and lawyers I’ve always been and still am fascinated with their stories. Whereas I have always found stories about the fbi, cia, or any other dramatised American agencies to be overblown and a bit cheesy. There’s always a lack of the human element which made my parents and grandparents stories more personable which is what drew me in.

However!!... Jerry’s experience in the fbi makes her a great interviewer and she really only steps in to ask questions that give the story another layer of depth, and both she and the agents she is interviewing speak openly and candidly about the wins, the losses, and the emotions of a job that’s so rarely discussed in this long form conversational way. Great podcast,

Love from Western Australia!
