Been a fan since the beginning

I love this podcast. That being said I am getting annoyed that they are trying to pull one over on us by playing old episodes and not disclosing it. Every other podcast that plays repeat shows discloses this in the episode title. The whole point of this podcast is to solve a mystery, so catching true fans off guard in this way feels like they are belittling our intelligence. I’d rather have lower quality new episodes than be fed the same ones again, or you could even go on hiatus until things get back to normal. Please stop airing repeats, or if you’re going to keep doing it, tell your listeners instead of covertly removing old episodes from the feed and placing them right on top (the episodes are numbered and we know how to count). I do love this podcast which is why the way this was handled has been so disappointing.

It’s a wonderful podcast that helps you better understand and appreciate the life, love, and determination of iconic individuals. Many made a significant impact to our current culture, primarily within the entertainment and business industries. The time, thought, and effort put into this podcast is absolutely amazing. It’s one of the best podcast around.
