Excellent Series

I have worked my way through the entire series from beginning up til the last couple months. Fascinating, sad, morbid , chilling. But oddly, the episode that most fascinated me was the 400+ year old Batavia mutiny. I from the US, and read and enjoy history, but I had never heard of this event. Absolutely shocking. Like a true life Lord of the Flies. Just appalling. Wonderful research, interesting presentation that intentionally interjects little personality, leaving the listener to project their own emotions.

Where are you?

I’ve listened to all of episodes for a 2nd time. I miss you! It’s seems like at least a year since I’ve heard a new episode. Please do not forsake us.

msbadkittie ,

one of the best podcasts!

this is how you do true crime. a lot of details and back story. even if i’ve heard what i think is all the important info on a case, Casefile will always provide new info i’ve never heard before.

the narrator’s voice really adds something. it’s the right amount of gravity and compassion.

the series on The Golden State Killer aka EAR/ONS is probably the best i’ve heard. if you haven’t listened yet, start with this one.
