Wish they went into more detail!

Great and engaging podcast with good narration but I just really wish they went into a little bit more detail on the crimes. It’s too quick and I wish they would just spend a little bit more time on each each item. Love Ash and Alaina! I know deep down it probably kills them that they can’t go into more detail haha
