Not Just the Best MSW Podcast, But an Overall Delight
While I watched Murder, She Wrote casually with my mom in the ‘80s, I didn’t really CONNECT with the show until my basement flooded when I was in my late 30s (long story) and I was inspired by Jessica Fletcher, a smart, compassionate woman who unexpectedly got a second act later in life. I became obsessed. I got the Angela Lansbury workout video. I got the MSW sweater. But I didn’t get a podcast I LOVED (and I tried a couple, believe me) until this one came along. Listening to Cabot Cove Confidential feels like entering the MSW expanded universe. Damien and Jennie clearly love and respect the show and the characters, but they have a lot of fun with it. It’s just nice to visit with them every episode—their voices are engaging, their chemistry as co-hosts is phenomenal, and the structure of the podcast is reliable but never boring. Just like Murder, She Wrote itself! Great job, and I hope they make it through all 12 seasons.
I have been a fan of MSW since 2000 and your podcast is a delight to listen to! I love it!
Love the podcast and the hosts!
Damien and Jennie—this podcast is everything I wanted in a MSW podcast! It’s lighthearted, fun, funny, interesting, and I don’t have to quickly turn it off when my 8yo comes in the room! I feel like I know you—in a non-weird way. Damien—I was homeschooled too! Jennie—I love your insights! Keep it up guys.
