What am I supposed to listen to now?!

Finally caught up after months of listening and now I feel empty.

CrimeJunkieTori ,

Newly Discovered!

I love these 2! I love how different it is for half of the episode to be true crime and the other half paranormal. My 2 obsessions in 1 place, it’s great!

SamanthaMcMillan ,

Best podcast I’ve heard

Love this podcast so much! I’ve been listening to old episodes for a couple weeks now and even though I keep getting nightmares I feel like it’s worth it lol, I love the stories and the banter it’s really really great!
