    Before Wild Bill became a serial killer, he was a small-time crook swindling anyone who got in his way.

Love this!

Excellent. Just excellent! I found this podcast after listening to many episodes of Twisted. I binged all 3 seasons in one weekend and am excited for season 4. I have also subscribed to Javier’s podcast Pretend. Such a refreshing take on True Crime. Definitely not the same recycled material that you hear in other shows.

Different approach to true crime

The hosts are excellent and they discuss unfamiliar cases. There are too many people just repeating the same old gory details with nothing to add to the genre. This is thoughtful and the discussions don’t go off the rails into silly banter. The hosts both have great shows alone as well.

Amazing! Seriously one of my favorite podcasts ever!

One of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Great job!
