I absolutely love Hostage! The narrators have fantastic Podcast voices. The writing in the form of telling a story keeps you intrigued and captivated throughout! A must-listen for true crime fans!

Good but not about hostages

I am torn because the podcast really is well written and produced, but most of the stories are not about hostages they're about kidnappings. Most of the episodes involve someone just being taken and kept by their captor for years. They are what the captor wants. A hostage is where they are being to be used as leverage to obtain something else and the situation usually ends relatively quickly. Good show but misleading subject matter.

One sided story telling

After the Waco story, I had to unsubscribe.
