Heart wrenching

I was hanging on every episode while my heart was breaking for the precious souls murdered by those sadistic sexual deviants. Mexico’s system is a modified version of the Atlantic slave trade. The US always has their hand in corruption, oppression abuse etc in the name of capitalism. I wish there could be justice and the young women can be safe. Thank you for illuminating this story.

Outstanding

Being a Texan I knew that it was never safe to visit Juárez and anyone who left a comment with your political views... no one cares that you support a racist pseudo president. This is about these women who’s lives mattered. I will say as a bruja the misconceptions about Santa Muerte are a little hard to listen to but overall it’s an outstanding podcast.

Wait a sec

First off, this podcast is powerful and extremely moving. The amount of violence women face is alarming. One day I hope we can all reach peace amongst ourselves. Second to the people who disagree with the last episode where she named names... come on people you’re really going to focus on that? They were examples -__- people are offended by the fact that she named disgusting people? give a fair review
