I wanna be their friend ,

Hammann/McDaniel for President

I hate running because I get so bored that I cannot stand spending my time that way. BUT, Most Foul is so great that I have listened to many episodes twice, while logging miles. The banter between Kirsten and Andrew is perfect - whether it’s that way naturally or is cut that way doth not matter - but their realistic take on things, their insistence on not blaming the victim but also stating the facts, and their ability to put you into the context and culture of the time is phenomenal. Also, references to such randomness as Mariah’s not remembering and Brittney’s time married for like two days, are all things that we are not normally getting from true crime. True crime is a passion of so many of us - AND Kirsten and Andrew point out that this is not weird, or new, which is so true. KEEP IT UP TEAM. And, let me know if you need help on the campaign trail, or on a trial of any kind. Here is a go at the slogan for your Campaign TRIAL (get it): Solving Healthcare, and Murder, which is also Healthcare, for America.

My new guilty pleasure

Excellent research and conversation between the hosts, also love the notes and additional info that is offered.

Fascinating and fun

Loving the research, the stories, and the banter! Great company—thoughtful and rivetingly macabre. Really enjoying the discussions and tangents between the hosts: they sound as interested in the topics as the audience—in the words of Kirsten, “I’m just going to say it: Whoa.”
