Customer Reviews

The Misery Machine ,

Love It!

Excellent find! We came across your show on IG and decided to give it a listen - very glad we did! The hosts are a breath of fresh air and a joy to listen to - the topics are interesting and bingeworthy. Keep up the great work - cannot wait to binge more content <3 Yergy & Drewby

In depth

This show is great. Unlike most true crime shows this podcast doesn’t get tempted to use sensationalism to draw listeners in. I am from California, but I believe that people from any locale will be able to dive in and enjoy. They present the facts in an entertaining and interesting way, yet listeners can still form their own opinions on the cases. The hosts have an excellent rapport and you can tell they genuinely enjoy working together. The amount of research and attention to detail that goes into each show is astounding. I’m 6 episodes deep and I still find myself anticipating the next opportunity I get to listen. Great job

JP Genius ,

An interesting take on my home state.

I first subscribed to this podcast while looking for episodes about the Children of Thunder case. Then I saw 13 episodes about Steven Stayner and decided to give that a listen. Now I think I’m hooked on this podcast. The information about different localities and the insights into other topics are incredibly interesting. 👍🏾👍🏾
