Betty Drooper ,

Hosts that rock and cover fascinating cases

I really love listening to these two ladies - especially with those Jersey accents!! 😂 Smart, educated and insightful commentary on some cases I knew and some I didn't, but always with a different and interesting perspective. I’m so impressed at how much they can predict in terms of criminal behaviour and legal outcome. Keep it up!!!
