Keep it up :)

Saw someone trash this podcast because of the hilarious banter and lighthearted jargon. If you don’t like it, don’t listen. I listen to more serious podcasts at times, and they can be heavy on the heart. This one is great because they relay a story without the heavy and painful feeling we sometimes get when trying to keep a victim alive in spirit by listening to their stories, and they do have serious tones when referencing victims and scary situations they endure. It is evident that these ladies are dedicated to giving a means of understanding/learning to those listeners that sometimes can’t hear horrific descriptions and blunt retellings of crimes. I understand that some, even myself, may feel that we need to feel disturbed to grasp what others went through, but people are vastly different and some want to learn through a retelling that sounds like your friends are sharing it with you. This podcast is unique for that reason.

Thank you both, Melissa and Mandy, for referencing George Floyd and providing a link to donate and learn more.

Easy listen but still provides a good story!

I hate seeing negative reviews on this podcast.

If you’ve listened to it enough, you know it’s not crazy in-depth/super serious. It’s an easy listen that provides the facts but in a lighter atmosphere than most true crime pods, which for me, is refreshing.

I personally enjoy the banter throughout. For me it keeps me positive and I enjoy the ability to hear a true crime story and not feel crushingly depressed afterward!

10/10 ladies :)

LBEE9TRE ,

Thank you

I love the podcast and look forward to hearing from you all every week. As a person of color I truly appreciate you acknowledging our trauma and taking a stand against racism, sexism, and bigotry. Keep of the amazing work.
