Good stuff, as usual

No surprise here, but another solid Podcast from Tenderfoot TV. You had me at “Up & Vanished”, Payne. Y’all keep up the good work and we’ll keep listening.

Reenactments 👎🏻, Content 👍🏻

Really interesting podcast. My one criticism is that I find the audio reenactments to be pretty annoying and cringey. If those were cut out it would be perfect. The content is awesome and the reenactments don’t add anything.
