Khooni entertainment!

I cannot believe being a crime enthusiast I have not listened to you guys before! My bad 🥲
Sneha and Aditi I Love the show! Love the crimes…. Ahem I mean loved the recounting of the crimes!
On a serious note do listen to this crime podcast. The girls have done immense research on each incident and have narrated it so well! I found the show gripping and entertaining. I do enjoy it when you guys talk about yourself and life in general… it makes the show less macabre .. oh and I love sneha’s gaali, adds a bit of masala to the show! Keep it going! You have made Hyderabad proud ( I am a hyderabadi) and I am sure Aditi has done the same for Lucknow.

Horrible

Nothing just a couple of leftists trying to crack a joke . Out of the two , Sneha stinks

New Title - Preachi - Gyaan of India?

I discovered this Podcast sometime during the pandemic and it was so well researched and eloquently narrated. I remember my wife and I used to listen to few of the initial episodes on our long drives and at times were scared passing through secluded areas while listening to the content.

But lately, I just can’t seem to listen to the content anymore. The Tinder crime episode was the last straw.

The ladies used to tangent off to different social topics in the past as well which was bearable to an extent given the production quality and the efforts they put in and it indeed felt like a tangent/digression. But now it feels like they (or maybe because it is just Sneha now?) first have a social message they want to deliver and then pick a case to talk about. Maybe change the genre to Preaching/ Summit the Moral Peak etc.
