This was phenomenal. The host was AMAZING. Some thought certain details were repetitive? Whatever!! So much to absorb.. I’m glad he explained things so well. This story…just wow. I am so sad to know that so many are behind bars but shouldn’t be. But I’m SO HAPPY for Crosley.. what a strong man. Can’t wait to hear that he’s out for REAL and FOREVER. EXCELLENT PODCAST!!! The truth will set us free!!! 👍🏼❤️🙏🏼❣️(enjoy your ice cream and macaroni & cheese!!!) 🍧🧀
God bless you Crosley.
Worth the listen
Great podcast! I can’t believe this stuff happened while I was growing up in Palm Bay! It was almost hard to listen to at some points because it’s so infuriating how the Palm Bay police conducted these investigations! He’s repetitive but only because there’s a lot of information and he makes sure you understand what’s going on. There’s a few reviews complaining about the audio quality in some parts.... they are literally years old recordings from the original interviews when the murders happened there’s nothing they can really do about that.
The narrator was good in the first season, but season two has a lot of instances where he stops to repeat himself - I’m assuming it’s for emphasis, but it just comes off as dramatic and superfluous. We’re listening, we got it the first time! It actually became annoying. They also replay a lot of the same testimony, which was unnecessary.
