Excellent!

Truly outstanding investigative journalism! The story of Daniel and how he has never been found is devastating for his family and that “Private Investigator” is preying on his parents emotions! He is a fraud and a joke! He should be ashamed!
This was an excellent podcast, Thank you!

Started out very neutral....

This had all the markings of something that would cover just the facts and allow you to decide what is what ( real journalism), but then devolved into anti capitalist leftist garbage in episode 5. Don’t get sucked in and don’t waste your time with this anti-American garbage
