As an over the road truck driver Adam gets me through some of the greatest challenges throughout my day! This podcast is rich in both historical facts along with amazing cases of sleuths! 5 Out Of 5 Stars!

If you love detective stories, you’ll love this

I subscribed to this podcast 5 years ago. Adam was shaky at first, which I loved, and he’s grown into a pro. Way to go Adam and thanks for keeping your podcast going for so long.
