TJTENNISPRO ,

Vinnie Politian is an incredible narrator

I recommended anyone that’s writes a book to get him to narrate. Automatically 50% increase in sales.

NGrayFox ,

BIASED

The host is completely biased and it really doesn’t seem like he’s objective. He ends every single episode with rants. I thought this was about examining the case and trial not trying to prove you side and what you believe

have lost it ,

One sided.

I think they are a bit one sided. Maybe have someone for the defense.
