Unbelievably engaging!

Excellent audio, great voice, sufficient drama to stay engaged; thank you for pursuing the story! Better than the movie (certainly!) and better than Dylan (but adds to the energy)!

The best

This is the best podcast series that I’ve listened to. The case was well researched and laid out and the music and background stories are incredibly crafted.

Well done!
