Very interesting

Love the subject matter, it’s really interesting. A nice point of view which is a change to standard true crime podcasts. Only downside is the hosts view about the police and laying blame in general which repetitively comes out in every episode.

Empathy in the narration is amazing. What an emotional ride. Thanks

Loved listening to all the cases you have covered so far. So well spoken, with such respect. The rawness and honest feelings are heart breaking but at the same time very interesting. I learnt a lot and understand so much more now so thank you and sorry for the loss of all your loved ones.
