ManlyPointer ,

That grating laugh!

I can't get enough of it. The rapport between this group is amazing and they have led me to so many great stories (podcasts, documentaries, etc.) I also love their low key liberal politics...they just express themselves without ever getting overbearing or self-righteous. I hope it creeps into their listener's psyche in an insidious way.

Keep up the great work!

Philorts ,

I’m sorry

I couldn’t give a lower rating because they really put a ton of effort into the show. It’s well done all around an I’ve appreciated it for a few years now. That said I have to unsubscribe. It’s a firm rule of mine that if psychics are pushed in anyway on a true crime show I jump ship. Considering the climate of US policing, and how so much of the forensic tools they use are based in little to no data, advocating even in the most innocuous way, for them to use psychics is a deal breaker for me.

Would it be ok if Doug Evans employed a “real psychic” to prove Curtis Flowers guilt?

Again, it’s a well done show but we are not in a world where advocating for things like psychics in policing is in anyway ok.

Great Podcast

I love Rebecca’s laugh and her husband’s sultry voice.. weird I saw them being interviewed on TV and Kevin’s voice sounds totally different..it wasn’t as sultry but whatever.. I enjoy the teams relationship and their discussions..

In Additional:
KEVIN, 50 is NOT advanced age.. can’t believe u said that ....
