I grew up 15 min from the Villisca axe murder house and was SO PSYCHED to hear it talked about!! Never been there bc absolutely no thank you ma’am but I feel weirdly connected to it?? Idk but I love this show so much. I came here after I finished every episode of Morbid and I need more shows from these two. For real

One of my fav

I absolutely love this podcasts. I like trying to guess who is going to be on the lists. In reference to the Alcatraz episode, if anyone has not been I highly recommend it. Also the night tour is a lot creepier than the day tours
