Favorite podcast of all time

I started listening to MWMH in October after a friend recommended it to me when I said I got sick of all the other true crime podcasts that I had been listening to here and there. When I say I am addicted to this podcast… I mean I’m literally addicted. Like I said, normally I get sick of the hosts on others but Payton and Garrett are the sweetest, funniest, and most genuine people and I could never get tired of them. Payton is able to tell a fantastically organized case in a way that will always leave me on the edge of my seat to figure out if it’s a survivor story or not, and even if it’s not, I love how she talks about the impact that the victims have on everyone after the fact. Payton is also so good at showing all aspects of the case and gives attention to the things that are important. I tell literally every single person about this podcast because it’s so stinkin good. Love you guys!!!!!!
