Almost 5 stars
This is a great podcast about mystery, thriller and scary books. It would get five stars from me except for this, I really enjoy Rinceys reviews but she throws the word “Like” in there so many times it’s distracting.
I love the book recommendations!
This is a great fun listen and I love the book recommendations! I’m a huge mystery/thriller/true crime lover and I’ve been enjoying the light discussions. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is because of the constant swallowing noise coming from one of the hosts. If you listen to the episodes, she’s CONSTANTLY swallowing and you can hear it all. I know it’s picky and random but it’s very off putting and when listening, it’s a gross sound to hear every few words. And it leads to a kind of awkward pause every other word/sentence.
Why is every other word from Rency “like”? It drives me crazy! If this was a drinking game you would be passed out in the first ten minutes if you were drinking every time she says like.
