shmooppee ,

Love you both and the podcast ❤️

Peyton and Garrett ,
I walk 5-15 miles a day and listen to podcasts religiously, MWMH is MY FAVORITE!!!! I am addicted to true crime , but I have to say that not every true crime podcasts deliver like you both do, Peyton your delivery of how you tell the stories is just phenomenal! Your voice is soothing and I just can’t explain how much I love MWMH. Garrett, I always look forward to your reaction and I have to tell you both that I look forward to my daily walks anyway but listening to you both is just the BEST! Thank you so much 😘😘😘

Sinstina ,

First started on Amazon music AND FINISHED ALL EPISODES

They really make the episodes interesting and relaxing at the same time as well as the respect and in depth research that’s done is so nice to say the least ! I also watched all the you tube content too now I’ve got faces to the voices I love you guys!!!

MylissaR ,

Excessive ads! Immature host..not worth it.

The ads are unbearable!! Excessive!! Wayyyyy too many! I listen to a lot of podcasts and no other podcast devotes such a huge amount of time to ads. It’s way over the line. Absolutely ridiculous! It’s so excessive it makes even minor criticisms of this podcast major. Because with THAT many ads, you better be worth it. But you’re not. You don’t even take the time or make the effort to get 911 calls, interrogation tapes, or interview anyone. You read a written summary, broken up by SO. MANY. ADS!!

Payton, you sound uneducated. How did you end up doing a podcast when you can’t pronounce simple words and often just make words up completely? And please let Garrett talk! You snap at him if he dares ask a question or interject an opinion. All you’re doing is reading a previously written summary so why is he even there if he isn’t allowed to interact? Is it WITH your husband, or do you just want to read your book report to the class? Poor Garrett. You’re not kind to him. Also, please spare us the reading of references. We can find them in the notes if interested. Mostly, get over yourself. You’re not all that. You’re reading a script, can’t pronounce words, often get facts wrong, don’t understand the judicial system, and even misrepresent common laws such as HIPAA. You’ve put in no effort except researching online; no interviews, no recordings, nothing. You’re out of your league, acting like this is Dateline or something.

Garrett, stick up for yourself. I bet you’re aware that the disproportionate amount of ads and subscription tactics are “scammy.” (A word Payton might use right?) This is like a podcast of sponsors with breaks for a story. My God the devotion to ads is excessive! Little bit of a story, now here’s ANOTHER break for six ads. Most podcasts break once with a few ads, maybe twice with fewer ads in the break. You guys have three, four or more breaks with several ads each break! For a story that’s less than an hour!!! You know the loyalty to sponsors over listeners is a losing business model. Stand up to her childish ego and inability to see outside of right now now now!! And, I pay for three subscriptions, but I will not pay for this podcast. You want more money for one podcast than entire collections cost! You’re doing it all wrong. Pushing the envelope. Taking advantage just as far as you possibly can. It’ll implode. Too much too fast. You know she doesn’t get it. Shortsighted risks that can’t be recouped by even more ads. Take a stand. To her and MIL both.
