My favorite.

I listen to multiple true crime podcasts. Crime junkie, morbid, and many many more. However, the amount of love I have for Em & Christine blows the others out of the water. They are so relatable and make me feel calm and like everything is okay. They’ve helped me through times I didn’t think I’d get through.
