Well done

I live in San Pedro and was good to hear this so well done - and non sensationalized. My heart breaks for the families.

Great listen

This is an awesome podcast, despite the poor audio and music quality it’s still worth it.

Season 2

I enjoyed season 1 but season 2 missis the mark by miles. Literally learned nothing that 5 minutes on google wouldn’t show you. I hope it gets better if there is another season
