Hard to listen

I listen to this show occasionally and even checked out a few subscriber episodes but please work on your storytelling. The main speaker talk in circles a lot. She also mispronounces things frequently. A few of the stories aren’t researched well. I find myself zoning out then looking down realizing the entire podcast past and I don’t remember anything that was said. I think this podcast has a lot of potential to improve but they aren’t ready to focus on paid subscription just yet.

Too rushed

Many of the true crime stories that are covered on this podcast can be found on other black true crime podcast as well. Whenever I listen to other black true crime podcast reporting the same stories, I get a more in depth explanations on what happened. So my 3 stars is simply due to the fact that the stories on this podcast can seem very rushed as if there’s more information out there but you all have chosen to omit it.
