    Do You Like My Little Lie?

    Do You Like My Little Lie?

    It’s the time of year when skeletons come out of the closet. We honor the dead, as we get ready for holidays among the living, where secrets will be spilled, and secrets will be created that will haunt us for years to come. You might describe today’s story as a classic “noir,” if it wasn’t … Continue reading Do You Like My Little Lie? →

    Franky Carrillo: Life Now

    Franky Carrillo: Life Now

    We check in with Franky who did 20 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit (listen to our original Franky Carrillo episode “Life” for the backstory) and find out how he’s doing now and what he’s been up to for the last six years since his exoneration. It was worth the visit.

From the outside looking in ,

People in the review section are shady...

Strangers is a fantastic podcast with excellent story telling. There have been episodes with storylines worthy of being adapted into full length films. Producing podcasts is a challenging gig, and there are so many on the App Store that lack the production quality Leah (I apologize if I’m misspelling your name here) brings to the table. The listeners who left negative reviews are calling the host narcissistic for taking a few episodes to share her own story. C’mon. If you’re not a fan, skip the episodes. There is no need to drag this woman and publicly shame her for being vulnerable. People have so much to complain about when it comes to free content, it’s not even like you’ve spent money to be here. Just don’t listen? Hahah. Long story short, it’s a solid podcast, would highly recommend.

Unsubscribing

I loved this podcast when it was about other people’s stories, told so beautifully and with such vulnerability and care, and I was sad when it started being sporadic then disappeared for a while. I was excited to see it back in my feed until I listened. Yes, I wondered where Lea had been but I only needed 30 secs of explanation, not hours of tape that just have a self-absorption I can’t listen to. Very sad to unsubscribe but I have.

So Lame.

LOL the description on her newest episode is “Lea is back, but where has she been?”

This podcast should be called “The all about Lea podcast”
