Truly amazing

The way this all came together, the narrator’s voice, the emotions and feelings I felt while listening….amazing!

Lack of effort

There seems to be an issue with researching stories. Time and time again they portray opinions as fact.

Nothing compares.

The story, the narrator, the way the story is told/unfolded…it pure perfection!

Five years later and nothing compares to this podcast for me! Culpable is a close 2nd and it’s not that close.

I feel I will never find the “magic” of this podcast again.
