THE Best!

I’ve been listening to this podcast since the beginning, but just finally reviewing since I’m bingeing old episodes (sorry, Billy!). I can’t say enough nice things about these two guys-I just hope that all their efforts lead to more arrests and answers for all the families needing to know what happened to their loved ones. Being a science nerd, I absolutely love when Paul starts his scientific explanations (oh and don’t forget his weekly distractions 😂). Love your podcast-keep digging!
