Love!!!

Listened to one episode after this podcast was suggested to me. Don’t know what other people mean about the music being too loud because I never notice it. I’ve learned a lot after thinking I was pretty in-tuned with how these scammers work.

No longer bearable

I'm a fan of the show but prefer the original host. The new host sounds disingenuous like she's reading something.
Update :
I can't stand the new host and have decided to stop listening.

Miss Will

I really enjoy these stories. It’s a very informative podcast. However, I miss Will. He has a wonderful voice and way about him.
