Tara Bennett ,

Great work.

Thank you for doing the work and bringing this information to the table.
I am from Tulsa, Oklahoma and I am happy to say that we have kicked Live PD our of our city.
The portion of the episode about the man from Tulsa broke my heart. We have ZERO state run mental health facilities, so we have a huge issue with anyone, especially those with less money, with mental health issues not being able to get the real help they need and deserve.
Our police here need a rude awakening of how they police. Live PD came here directly after Betty Shelby, a then TPD officer shot and killed Terrance Crutcher. They were trying to benefit off of that. Our officers need extensive retraining not glorification.
Thank you, again.

Wow! I’ll never watch again!

This show made me see things in a brand new way. What once may have seemed entertaining is now something I don’t want to lower myself too. Keep up the great work.

👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I found this while listening to The Clearing. I wanted to finish The Clearing first before listening this and was super eager to see what it is all about. Such an eye opener. Great reporting and highly entertaining.
