Season 1 is awesome

I loved the crazy ride of the first story. Great characters. Like watching a crime or mystery show. I’ve only listened to season 1 so far.

Love the Sneak

So glad I found the Sneak. I started with Season 2. I have gone back and listened to Season 1 and am listening to Season 3. Keep up the good work. Love Nate’s style. Am anxious to find out the topic of Season 4.

Don’t waste your time…

This undoubtedly took countless hours to investigate. To make a podcast discussing all of the deadens and misinformation gathered and NEVER coming up with a proven fact or for that matter anything close to a conclusion is just nuts. And to post 8 sessions doing it is ridiculous.
