I am a True Crime Podcast junkie who literally spends all day, everyday listening to podcasts while I work. I have listened to a lot of different investigative reporters over the years, but Delia is by far my favorite now. She is a bada** and doesn’t take “no” for an answer. Good job on being a voice for those who are no longer able to use theirs!
Delia’s voice! 👌
I love listening to Delia! She is smart and objective.
I absolutely love Delia! (And the Audiochuck team i.e. Ashley, Brit, Chuck, etc.) They go above and beyond advocating for these victims and their families. I have been a fan for years and will be a lifelong fan! Thank you all for all the good you do.
