    Season 6 Q&A with Bob Motta (Defense Diaries) and Charlie Worroll (Crimelines)

    We've received more questions in the first half of this season than in any other season prior. So, I decided to sit down with Charlie Worroll (Crimelines) and Bob Motta (Defense Diaries) to answer questions, discuss the investigation, get legal perspective from Bob, and case perspective from Charlie. We discuss new info in the Steven Koecher case, a new theory about all of Keyes's hits on Susan Powell media, an update on Burger King Guy, Somewhere in the Pines, the FOIA process and working with law enforcement, comparisons between Keyes and John Wayne Gacy, attorney-client privilege, and more.

    Featuring: 
    Charlie Worroll from Crimelines

Very throughly researched

I’ve been listening to this podcast for quite awhile now. I’m completely caught up. The subject matter is incredibly sad and horrifically frightening. Josh and his team have done the biggest deep dive on a serial killer that I’ve ever heard or read. While doing so they’ve also been incredibly respectful to all of the families involved, including Israel’s family, which I believe is a very honorable thing to do. I truly hope that through all of their hard work some of these cold cases will be solved and victims brought home to rest. The sound is top notch and the music is great too. If you like to listen to true crime podcasts, this one is definitely worth your time.

5 stars to 2

I have listened to TCBS since the beginning. Been a Patreon supporter, Instagram follower, Facebook group member, after show watcher, etc. It’s gotten weird. The show has this weird undertone of ‘Josh knows all’ and no one else, not even investigators or the FBI know what Josh knows. The vibes are definitely weird. The researchers also seem weirdly obsessed with pleasing him. Idk I can’t explain it. It used to be good. Now it’s the Josh show. They also weirdly gate keep information and like tease info like “we’ll get back to that later” and never do… or the researchers will say something and stop and be like “oh I can’t talk about that hehe” like I totally get keeping things private, but like if you can’t share something, don’t tease it. It’s disappointing. Also kinda telling that a new podcast about Keyes comes up and hits top charts and has interviews with FBI and people who actual met Keyes. Wonder why those people would play ball with TCBS. Just my two cents

If jgddsssghjkkk ,

Used to be great, now not so much

Weird season. Terrible issues w audio quality & volume. Skimpy episodes. Nothing of real value covered unless you want to hang your whole case on newspapers and some Amish people. The ads dominate and how disappointing for Josh to take money from highly problematic platform Better Help. Ugh. And the music is just an irrelevant vanity project screaming look how obscure and feely my taste is. Finally, I wonder how a different and new Keyes podcast snagged first person interviews with the actual FBI agents on the case and people who knew Keyes when TCB has been going for several years and hasn’t managed to do so. I’m listening in hopes it will get better but I’m not optimistic.
