Creative Arts Director ,

Superb Host & Podcast

Everything about this podcast and the Host, Ana, is absolutely perfect in every aspect...audio production, research, script, voice. Ana as a Host speaks with such clarity and calm as she weaves the details of each victim’s story. A great voice especially for true crime.

DayOldNews ,

Well-balanced true crime tales

A different approach to the true crime genre, the host compassionately and thoughtfully covers stories of school-related crimes. The balance between good and bad stories keeps it less intense than other podcasts. The host has a beautifully soothing voice and the audio quality is well done. Her passion for students as an actual teacher comes through, as does her kindness and empathy for all.

MrPrudent ,

Teacher Crush

If MY favorite teacher had a voice like Ana's, I certainly would have made straight A's...As it stands HE was just a brilliant man that encouraged me, and challenged many of my mind processes ( I ended up being a solid B+ Student). What a fascinating concept for a podcast. Well produced and interesting in so many ways. There wasn't a second I wasn't interested in the story laid out by the Host. In fact, I found myself rewinding moments that I might have missed. The host is also gracious as an abassador for the art, reaching out to lend a helpful hand in support of her fellow Podcasters. The episode lengths are bite sized and easily consumed...BRAVO!!!
