Sooooo tasty!

I just found Mob Queens, and I’m rapidly chewing through all of the episodes. The hosts are nothing short of excellent and engaging. AND...what a great story!

10s Across the Board

Absolutely incredible. Really fascinating to see the confluence of history, popular culture, and queer culture illuminated so vividly by very able hosts. I would rate it higher if I could.

Boring

This podcast somehow found a way to make Mob Wives boring. They spent too much time on insignificant detail, trying to make it seem exciting.
