Evil woman got away with it

I binge listened through the entire second season hoping Michelle would get what was coming to her. ( Spoiler alert) Unfortunately, real life doesn’t always work that way. Michelle is thriving while the loser cop who did her bidding would rather rot than admit she set him up.

Waiting for Season 3!

This Podcast has it all...! Looking forward for the next season as Michael has the perfect “storyteller” voice.

Riveting

One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to in a long time. It was especially interesting as it occurred in my home town. I can’t wait for the next one. Great work by everyone involved in the project.
