_msal18 ,

Thoroughly well researched for sure

These girls really put in a lot of hard work to go through the content very systematically and pragmatically and present it as objectively as possible without any biases.

My curiosity for true crime podcasts made me listen to one of their episodes and now I’m going through the rest of the episodes because how consistent their content creation, whatever may be the topic.

shoeteava ,

Please don’t take breaks 😭😭😭

I came upon this podcast accidentally and I have recommended it so many people and everyone loves it!!!!

Love you guys!!

D!ksh@22 ,

You guys are as true as it gets!!

I recently found this podcast and I have been binge-listening since then. Five stars for the research, the narration and all the little personal anecdotes and tidbits that both of you share! (I now know I am not the only crazy Brett Lee fan!!!)

Kudos to you both!
