Devin, Joe and Steve have always been curious. Though they don’t have any formal education to guide them, they sit down every week to discuss unsolved mysteries of all kinds: weird noises, strange website and horrific suicides that look a lot like murders. They take a skeptical approach, but never discount the truly odd nature of the world.

A ton of errors

Less than 3 minutes in and there’s at least 5 errors. I hope it gets better.

Some are better than others-earliest to latest

I originally found this podcasts earlier this year and took to listening to it on the way to and from work. I made a point to listen to them in order in case anything related in the future, and really enjoyed it at first. It seemed pretty well-structured at that point, and the hosts very clearly had their areas of interest that could provide facets of understanding to a story. The “lost episodes” were good. Lots of interesting topics, and it was fun to listen to them work through popular theories, regardless of origin.

As I encountered a few in a row that weren’t that interesting (either the topic or the discussion), I started bouncing around to more recent episodes and have been for a month or two, still providing benefit of the doubt each time I start a new one.
I don’t find any of them particularly funny, and truly, I wonder if they don’t find each other humorous as well, so much fake/uncomfortable laughing from Devon, barking laughter from Steve, and snarky-yet-gaining-no-reaction comments from Joe. They start walking all over each other, the men, esp Steve, over Devon, to the point that in one episode she literally says “I know what that means, I’m not stupid.” People mention Joe doesn’t have much to put in, but between the bickering (not well-)disguised as banter, it’s no wonder. There are times where I feel like they aren’t okay with not knowing things, so they just fill time when they don’t have much connection to the case.

The most recent few I’ve listened to have driven me to unsubscribe, which I guess doesn’t matter because it’s over. If you’re listening to the newer episodes, come with a bucket full of patience.
