Riveting Radio

I don’t get all the bad reviews for this podcast. I think the hosts do a great job at investigating and trying to make sense of this mystery. Really enjoy this podcast and this subject. I find it fascinating and the podcast add to the mystery of the ISGM.

Lifetime Bostonian ,

Terrific

Terrific great deep dives into Gardner Heist

Senska11 ,

Time to put it to bed

Pod started out very interesting - storyline and info was intriguing and entertaining. It has now devolved into just having conspiracy theorists on spitting stupidity with aboslutely zero logic or research behind it.
