My favorite

I will say I look forward to each episode and some I’ve heard from when it was on it’s original platform. The host is interesting and engaging, the spooksters are good, just every episode feels like a story. I know one season wasn’t so gray but a bad season of Spooked is better than the best of most podcasts.

Re-runs

Stop posting re-run episodes as new. I love this show so much and pray there will be new episodes every week! Such a disappointment when it’s a re-run.

This could be good but….

The music is too dang loud I can’t take it! I want to hear the people talking not loud rap music. The host of the show speaks so fast his words mesh together and he can be hard to understand too.
