Another great season!

Your research & attention to detail is excellent. And the interviews with the people involved make the stories even more intriguing & real. For your most recent season, thank you for giving these women a voice!

I tried …

I listened to more than half the seasons, and tried to listen to some others, but ultimately I have to give up on this podcast. Some seasons are better than others. The downfalls are 1) interviews that drag on and on and on (other podcasters edit to hit the relevant points) and 2) the host dragging on and on with her theories. I like multi-episode series, but this just moves way too slow. I appreciate hearing about crimes not covered elsewhere, but I can’t anymore with this one.
