Best True Crime!

I’ve binged all of the episodes over the last few months so I guess it’s finally time to leave a review! Sarah and Caitlin are so entertaining in their banter and storytelling. I usually favor one person over another in podcasts but I truly enjoy and look forward to listening to both of them! From a fellow North Pole-ian, thanks for being so cool and shedding light on victim’s stories every week.

They are adorable humans and I love the podcast

Sarah and Caitlin are so sweet and will respond to comments/DM’s because they care about their listeners so much. I love that they end with dad jokes and I have shared some of their jokes with my friends haha. One of my favorite podcasts.

Love this!

I recently discovered this podcast while browsing for true crime podcasts on Reddit. I freaking love it and have binged for 3 weeks straight. I don’t even really like beer but ya’ll have me going to the store and trying alllllll the beers. Literally laugh out loud to the banter. So good!
