Who’s to blame?

I would like you to find out Who is to blame for this podcast having a 4 star rating? Who gave this a 1-star review and why???? It has been 5-star from the very beginning.

P.S. Heard about you from the hosts of Gaslit Nation.

Wonderful show

Comedy meets history in this great show that tries to figure out who is to blame for historical tragedies. The shows could run for a long time as there are a multitude of tragedies out there to find blame on.

The Best Podcast!

Dear Rebecca, Amanda, Chris, and the rest of The Alarmist crew,

I have been binging episodes of your show, and I’m in love! I was a history major in college, and some of these events I’ve never even heard of! Listening to you guys gets me through the day delivering mail and packages.

I have an idea for a tragedy that you could cover. You could do it now and get it over with, or possibly wait until later down the road since it’s such a fragile topic still. Who is to blame for the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and 7 others? Some things I’ve thought of include the pilot, the helicopter company, Kobe’s luxury lifestyle (taking a helicopter everywhere he goes), and possibly the demands of AAU basketball.

I can’t think of much more at this time, but I’m sure there’s plenty to go around. Let me know what you decide on it, and keep up the good work!
