Top notch podcast

Excellent research and reporting. One of the best!

Sonorific ,

The Dixie mafia stuff is interesting. Lots of (far too much IMO) conjecture & speculation. Needed a ruthless editor at the writing stage, which it obviously didn’t have.

Ugh … Another Unresolved Story

Jeesh, my fourth straight investigative podcast with NO resolution. Roughly eight hours I’ll never get back. Oh well. I should just search the story first and save my time, but I remain hopeful that one of these will grab me by the short hairs … /M.
