Thank you.

Just found you after trying to find a ‘serious’ for want of a better word podcast about Aileen Wuornos and being appalled by one podcast that were laughing and joking about her and more importantly about her actions. So thank you for taking her seriously ...you have a new fan. Gotta love research and respect.

Great

Usually I’m not a fan of scripted podcasts, I tend to prefer the more casual chatty ones. However, this is great. The cases are all well researched and contain lots of detail. Both sides are looked at, in every situation, and there’s no judgement of the criminals featured.
