LOVE

So interesting and well researched. Keep going! Don’t stop!!

JJPasadena ,

my only complaint…

...I wish there were more! April 8th was a long time ago! ;) Amazing show. One of my favorite podcasts out there. I am constantly suggesting this show to ppl. Give it a try if you haven’t yet. The information and stories are dark and eerie and the narrator is top notch.

edit: wish the episodes were more frequent.
