Technically interesting investigative storytelling

Such an interesting niche podcast in “Exemplar”. Good narrative and technical details on audio forensics. Investigative storytelling also draws you in. So well done. BBC continues to impress.

Keneddy Fisher is back!!!

Wohoo! If you are a fan of love craft investigations, kenddy fisher is in The Who is Aldrich kemp podcast!!!

The system is amazing, I guess they changed the guys voice for season 2, cuz it’s a different dude.

Enjoyed the first show

Who Is Aldrich Kemp may be my favorite story yet! Keeping this one in the library to listen to again.

I really enjoyed The System. It got me through a long drive from a weekend trip.

Steelheads was rather accurate to the way things are possibly headed… (sarcastic yay).

Some of the stories I just can’t get into but the great thing about this feed is that there is something for everyone (that is, if you like fiction podcasts). Looking forward to what else Limelight may be coming out with.
