Extraordinary

I have listened to thousands and thousands of hours of true crime and investigative podcasts and David’s are the only ones I have listened to multiple times - no other podcast is up there. He is, quite frankly, an extraordinary investigator and human - it’s his kindness and empathy which shines and makes every episode so intimate and powerful. Thank you David for allowing us to come along for the ride, amazing work, as always!
