A long strange listen

Hoping for a season 3!!! I recommend this podcast to every fellow deadhead or true crime fan I meet. Please look into the murders connected to Rainbow Family Gatherings and see if there’s any connections.

Cringy at best

This podcast was so difficult to listen to but I kept listening thinking eventually it would go somewhere but it doesn’t. It’s just a bunch of people speculating & pointing fingers and spreading rumors pretending to actually remember events from 40 years ago while they were stoned out of their minds. Everyone including the host just keep repeating themselves over and over as if, the repetition will somehow make their drivel more believable. Don’t waste your time on this one.

No

Jake’s voice and narration is so cringe I couldn’t keep listening. Super bummer bc I like all of Payne’s other stuff. This one’s a no for me.
