Loving the true crime angle!

Great job to Alyssa for successfully pivoting the podcast to true crime. I’ve enjoyed your take on some stories I knew a bit about from the news. Excited to listen to part 2 on Amanda Knox.

I thought I would like the transition

I love true crime so I thought I would like this but no. I listened to all of approachable and a couple episodes of approached. Didnt like the change. It would be wayyyy better if she was more prepared and had notes. I think it was the Amanda Knox or I’m not sure what episode she said that she forgot the name or some detail because she doesn’t have notes and didn’t write it down. WHAT?! These were important details she kept forgetting. Just write down notes. Please. You don’t need a script- just important details. The other one she said she had to hurry and do it because she was packing or something maybe it was hot -idk- and it definitely felt rushed. Had to stop listening to this one.

Good podcast, not great cases

I like this new podcast but I really hope cases that aren’t so widely known and already covered many times will be covered in the future.
