Loving it!!

Great narrative-style podcast with good writing and a presenter with a lovely accent. I prefer lengthy episodes, detest self-absorbed banter and am super bored with the whole murder-meets-box-wine industrial complex. TCG is refreshing and I’m looking forward to seeing Dan hit the big time.

My new favorite

My new favorite podcast. I binged on it all in a week! The Armin Meiwes case had me on the edge of my seat and ready to lose my breakfast simultaneously. Thumbs up! High quality podcast!

Absolutely Fantastic!!

This podcast is my new favorite and I'm a podcaster lol. Dan is amazing and the level of detail is unmatched!!! I love the straight to the facts no chit chat approach he takes and the accent doesn't hurt. I'm fascinated and can't stop listening. This show is an absolute must listen if your a true crime fan!!!
