Overall Entertaining

Interesting stories, hope the guests really get the ongoing assistance they need cause while listening you hear every single red flag. My hugest strife are the long and multiple commercials and the long theme music. If those were shortened it would be so much better.

Downhill

Season 13 is ridiculous Natalia was unbearable to listen to and recently Grace who was “terrified” about a cyberattack who never actually contacted her. She continues to get upset with the contact he makes which fuels the fire. Change your phone number, email address and delete your social media.. problem solved

Great podcasts

Why does one of the best podcast have the worst theme song? The song is terrible and makes me angry that is so bad. Highly strongly suggest changing the song- this cannot be stated strongly enough. Love the podcast however, the stories are both disturbing, and triumphant.
