Miz so ,

Great interviews

The first two seasons are gold and deserved five stars, the third season was fine but maybe not as good. The host and interviewer are top notch.,

Bubsgoodman ,

Excellent

This podcast is extremely well done. Also, I love their music choices.

Michael Carter Reno ,

Great investigative podcast

The sneak brings attention to the lesser known avenues of criminals and disappearances. I felt as if initially I had to get over the mildly annoying voice of host. But after the initial acclimation, I’ve really enjoyed all 3 seasons
