Interesting true crime podcast
One of my favourite true crime podcasts - Robin explains each case in depth. As well as the depth of the cases, the way that he has featured non-North American cases also increases the appeal.
I find the way that the host says “Anyway...” at the start of new sections quite rude. It sounds pretty dismissive of what has come just before - which is often a story of someone meeting a mysterious, grizzly end to their life!
Robin is adorable
He is so cute and he works hard for this podcast. 👍🏻💗
