Kyary pamyurind ,

If I had to choose only one podcast I could listen to, it would be this one.

Andrew Rule is a fantastic teller of tales, and the title is accurate, some about life (all sorts)and some about crimes. Great stories but as with comedy, it’s not the joke it’s how you tell it. Great voice, human and humorous perspective.

clovergraves ,

interesting and thorough stories, great perspective, great everything

Georgia Boy US sailorman ,

Life and Crimes

I like the delivery and info in the front and back story. Well done.
