Great Podcast

I recommend this podcast-I really like the hosts voice- very easy to listen to and clear. I like the cases and it’s not sensationalist at all or hyped- presentation style. Excellent. Thanks for your work Jillian- it’s much appreciated.

Fab podcast

I stumbled across this podcast one day and now I can’t stop listening. Really well researched with lots of interesting cases. Would highly recommend!

Terrible quality audio

Sounds like a robot programme from Windows 3.1 is doing the voice for this. It’s horrid to listen to and is even more jarring when it swaps back to this voice from audio from humans.
