Well done

Thoroughly researched, well presented, thoughtful commentary. Very entertaining and thought provoking. I really like her voice too.

Wow just wow!

I'm a long time fan of true crime and found your podcast quite by accident but wow I'm so glad I did! I am learning so much about Asian culture but also the false perceptions that many westerners have about Asia and the crimes that have gotten media attention. I applaud you for tackling this topic with such wisdom and grace. Looking forward to much more.
