Not Sure It’s Worthy Of A Series

Interesting story but they really drew it out to make it a series and then it ends without great resolution.

Engaging!

I liked the pace of this one and didn’t find it as bloated as some of their other ones (Murder and Magnolias is just terrible for that). Cool podcast and recommended.

Confused

Story is kinda dumb because there a lot of things they can solve the mystery with easily
