THIS IS EXCELLENT.

Its so rare that you find a podcast that really gets atmosphere right. Most people think they are really funny and that we want to hear their stupid jokes. This isn't funny at all. And that's the way it should be. Its positively Halloweenian! Its one of the best- maybe the best-true crime podcast out there. Crime Junkie who?

You’re a good story teller

Kudos also for the background music.

AND! What you said at the end of the last episode, I agree with you 100%.
I’m also taking a break.
