I listen to 30-33 true crime podcasts and your podcast has become one of my favorites! I love everything about it-your voice, the stories, the format and the Sweden tidbit at the end. I wish you much success now & always! PS: I agreed with every point you made regarding the "hate" mail you received.

My favorite podcast
I love this podcast because it’s clear and to the point. No extraneous commentary, obnoxious background music, none of all those distractions that drive me up the wall. Also, Pernilla’s voice and cadence is much to my liking, not too small or fast, and not too monotone while managing to avoid getting too emotional. I worked in forensic psychiatry for many, many years, and her tone reminds me of the tone we often used during our treatment team meetings. Granted, we did have a bit more gallows humor at times, but overall we kept things pared down, so as not to interfere with the actual facts.
One of my favourites
Oh dear—Pernilla seems to be taking a break again. I hope she is well and will return.
