Addictive Podcast!

Love this pod… Naomi’s delivery is brilliant, very calming considering the nature of the things discussed. I’ve thoroughly been addicted to all the episodes, well done Naomi 😃

Sensitive & Thoughtful

I like to support independent podcasts and was impressed with this one. Well researched and very interesting subjects, many of which I haven’t heard before which is refreshing. One of the few true crime podcasts don’t sensationalise the cases which is appreciated. Naomi’s voice is smooth and feels gentle and warm. She is one of the more balanced hosts too, seeing all sides which is refreshing!

2 week True Crime Binge 😅

I am totally invested in this podcast! Naomi’s calm delivery is a perfect contrast to some of the shocking true crimes covered. I am nearly up to date though 😭
