Excellent quality!!

I’m a true crime fan, and have a wide and varied list of my favourite. This podcast just climbed to a spot near the top of my list!! Lake Erie is near and dear to my heart and many of these cases are located in familiar places. Excellent content and respectfully told. Keep up the great work!!
