Love Lara Beal but not the depth of Dr Death.

Subscription- no thx

Wondery has gotten greedy now requiring a subscription. I’ll go elsewhere for my podcasts and stories. Such a shame bc I enjoyed listening… use ads not subscriptions to fund your next podcast.

So interesting

I found this podcast by chance and I absolutely loved it. The story was really interesting and one I wasn’t familiar with. So it was great to really learn something and not just being entertained. All the tales were moving when the victims would talk about their experiences. This is definitely a great podcast.
