Couldn’t get through the first episode

I’ve lived in Middle Georgia (Near Wrightsville, actually) most of my life and went to college in Milledgeville. Never have I heard it referred to as Blood Town. Even if I could have gotten past that, the production quality did it in. Sorry not sorry but this is poorly done.

Great hosts. Like the unique approach.

I enjoy this podcast because it’s different. The hosts are eloquent and it’s well researched. Interviews are conducted well.

Difficult to Hear…..Very Strange Title

Maybe the title is fabricated for interest after the S-Town podcast? - I’ve been in MidGA for 40+ years and haven’t ever heard of any town or city called “blood town.” If ….there were a blood town in GA, it would be Macon or Albany, or Atlanta- each has held the grand title of “murder capitol” of GA at some point over the past 40 years. The audio is difficult to understand as the sound effects block the voices :(
