ENGROSSING!!

This is hands down one of the best true crime podcasts I’ve ever listened to, and I’ve been through a lot! This is a huge investment of your time but it’s absolutely worth it. Matt does a fantastic job and he is extremely thorough. There is, however, one problem, and it’s a BIG one. Where are the last episodes?!! I’ve gone through them all and can not find anything past episode 34! It’s TORTURE! Please advise as to where these episodes can be found(I’ve looked everywhere) or if they were never published. To my understanding, there should be two episodes remaining.
