Love this!

I love this podcast. I fell in love with it after their Roaring 20’s series, and am listening to the Princess Diana episode now. :) Perfect for long commutes and rainy days.

Too many crossovers, cheap production, sexist.

This is a Parcast problem in general. If I wanted to listen to an episode of one of your other shows, I would download that one to listen! Advertising other shows is one thing, but it feels like half the season of any of their programs belongs to another show. Also, the topics are interesting, but get your facts straight! And please, PLEASE check your toxic masculinity. Ironically, Tales is the only podcast on your network which I feel even tries to explain historical context and isn’t completely sexist.

Ignorant, poorly researched and out of touch

The portrayal of women in general on this show is piss poor, but the way this show portrayed Elizabeth Short - who has a name - was disgusting.This program took a woman who is brutally murdered and wrongly portrayed her as a drunken “ bar fly” rather than actually doing any research it would’ve showed that she had a very troubled and tumultuous childhood. Additionally she was simply trying to survive with virtually no family support and a time we’re options for women were virtually nonexistent.

Absolute trash - do better. You have more resources than many podcasters, yet others don’t seem to lack basic empathy and social awareness.
