Gritty and visceral podcast, literally hard to listen to at times- ‘The Farmhouse’ ( just horrid). I’m not sure I agree with the host’s enamored empathy for Keyes, but it bodes well for the listener, as the research and deep dive into pathos is mesmerizing and horrible.

Just perfect.

Josh you have told this tragedy so beautifully. I just finished the last episode of Season 1 and have goosebumps as I cry and write this. You are an artist, thanks for bringing something different to the table when it comes to true crime. Can’t wait to listen to the rest.

Best True Crime Podcast

Josh Hallmark is a dedicated genius. He is focused, tenacious and insightful. The FBI can’t match his research in its attention to detail, its thoroughness, or its breadth. Josh puts these skills to work to get the story and then he constructs the story. And, lucky us (!), his story-telling ability even outshines his research skills. We are so fortunate to have Josh researching and exposing this horrifying tale. As soon as I listen to one episode I get antsy for the next. Thank you Josh Hallmark, you rock!
