Finally!!

This is the true crime podcast I have been searching for! Every single episode is an emotional roller coaster that forces you to look at the life of a complete stranger objectively. You’ll ask yourself “what would I do?” And possibly learn something about yourself through the answer. Highly recommended!

Wow

For somebody like me who loves history…especially American history but not to exclude world history….I absolutely loved it! It was fascinating, interesting and just all-around entertaining. If you like a good story, especially a true story give it a listen.
