No longer active but still a delight

I started listening to this back in 2016 and I come back to revisit periodically. Though the podcast is no longer active, it’s a great sampling of bizarre crimes in Japan.

Perfect podcast

I love the atmosphere and research done for each episode, I’m so sad I came after y’all stopped making podcasts, I wish there could be more episodes :( but this is my favorite podcast rn

Does it get better?

I'm on the 1st episode and the dialogue between the hosts are too much. Hey to the story and offer some background but it's like every detail of this interesting story takes me off track.
