Captivating

Anna does a great job with this podcast! I never cared for true crime podcasts until this one! Anna keeps you engaged the whole time. Every story is likely one you never heard . Great job with this Anna keep up the good work .

P. S I found you by accident. I said hey siri play Apple and in a matter of seconds forgot to say “play Apple Music” and boom Apple for the teacher comes on and the rest is history . So good thing here that my phone was a bad apple. I think we can excuse this bad apple :)

Excellent podcast and super well made!

Your homework is to listen to this

I have listened to all but the most recent. Ana’s ability to share stories is full of compassion and well-done. Her decision to not name the offenders unless absolutely necessary adds to the purpose of honoring the victims and their families. Every once in a while her episode will bring me to tears. But that’s ok because it means she has found a way for the memories of of the lives to live on. Her recent episode where she visited the actual site of where a young girl was abducted and Ana’s description of it was so poignant.
