Chelsea_Ford ,

Love it!

I’m so glad I came across this podcast! As someone who’s lived in South Carolina my whole life and loves true crime, this has become one of my favorite podcasts! Keep up the great content y’all!

Stewart and Ellen ,

Favorite Pod!

This is the one pod that we both are addicted to. We save them to listen to together.

Fruitbat Jen ,

Love listening and am getting caught up!

I love you y’all! I’m a Hendersonville, NC native living in Charlotte. So my counties have always bordered SC, I’m well acquainted with SC. My dad used to tell stories of “ dark corners “ that was on the border between North and South Carolina. It was apparently a place rich with crime and shenanigans as no one could figure out jurisdiction. It would be cool to hear about this place in an episode. My dog’s name is Gimli and he is a dachshund. Keep up the good work and I enjoy you both and how real you are.
