Amazing

This is such an amazingly educational podcast. The host and guests are the real deal former FBI profilers, not just some true crime enthusiasts or wannabes. I’ve learned so much from all of the episodes. This is truly my favorite podcast and I hope it’ll stick around and won’t abruptly end like the Unsolved Mysteries podcast (still not over how they pulled the rug out from listeners!)

Amazing insight from the experts

I am loving this podcast! I heard an interview with Julia on the “Strictly Stalking” podcast and knew I wanted to give it a listen—so glad I did! I’ve always been curious about the Jodi Huisentruit case and the episodes about the ransom letter in the JonBenet Ramsey case are fascinating. Keep up the great work!

Needs better structure

I really want to hear their insights but have a difficult time listening because there are too many people and not enough organization
