Intense; terrific hosts!

I’ve only listened to the Adam Braseel episode. It was so well done, I subscribed. Heartbreaking...

The Best!

I’ve listened to about 50 episodes because i wanted to be completely sure when writing this but this podcast is by far my absolute favorite.

They choose from a variety of both well known and lesser known cases which I love. There are certain well known cases I just don’t have much info on and they do a wonderful job at outlining the case and evidence. With their lesser known cases, they are really great at making it relevant to the listeners in terms of things we can do to help.

The dialogue between the two is so captivating and most importantly, REAL- being two different people, someone times they have differing opinions which I don’t see v often (most other podcasts I listen to always have hosts that have the same opinion) and I think this is really refreshing because you get to hear multiple perspectives. Their voices are nice (I have a weird thing with certain voices, mannerisms, and speed when speaking), they speak very clearly, and at a very professional speed.

It is very apparent that they put a lot of time and effort into the research portion of their episodes. All information is presented clearly and the theories they share are all relevant.

Overall, this is definitely my favorite podcast and I 10/10 would recommend!

Good but weirdly condescending

I like this podcast, and I still listen to it, but I do wonder why one of the hosts is always speaking so condescendingly. It’s like he thinks all of us listeners are internet trolls who are arguing with him.... I’m just listening to something I know nothing about mate, nothing to fight about here
