Scooby Do & Charlie 2 ,

You are all great! Love the shows! Ignore the McTrolls!

I have been a long time listener and have enjoyed how the show has evolved into so much more over the years. I appreciate how hard all three of you work to inform and entertain us all. I love the new show (WOW)!

What happened to Woody’s original stories

Original Real life real crime hasn’t had any original stories besides the 4th repeat. I understand he was sick, but it’s what he started out with and promised it wouldn’t go away. Did he run out of stories?

Jmac252 ,

WOW

Is there a way to separate WOW from RLRC Original and Daily so I don’t have to hear Mikes voice ever again?
