Great podcasts

I first listened to this in 2022. I continue to be fascinated by these stories and listen to them off and on at random I am hoping you will continue with more podcasts about the area. I'm sure there are many more stories to tell .

Evil Exposed!

I was young at the time, and don’t remember anyone speaking about this, then or even now. I moved away shortly after this. This has been very eye opening and shocking. Thanks for your bravery and hard work to expose evil. Truth always has a way of coming out.

Great Podcast!

I was at The College of Charleston when this happened and don’t remember my parents, in Spartanburg, telling me about the crime. But this podcast brings the old Greenville back to life. I’m binging because it’s a fascinating, yet horrific, true crime story. And very well told!
