Great Pod

Love you two! But I do miss the old intro and the little chit chats about either a funny headline or just a story about your lives this week.

But always a great job on the true crime side!

MsAngey ,

I’m sorry, but no.

Maybe I’ll come back to this podcast down the road and hopefully something will have changed but for now it’s a big fat no. It’s one thing to have a little bit of banter but holy moly save it for before or after the story because you make it impossible to stay tuned in when you trail off every 2 minutes into gossip. ✌🏼

Sarecrossword ,

I tried.

I really wanted to like this podcast. The hosts all sound fun and interesting! It’s just when the episode is already only 45 minutes and 35 of it is just banter... gets annoying. I take nothing away from the episode other than what the hosts like to eat. Don’t talk about stories with victims if you aren’t going to pay better homage to them. Maybe try a different genre?
