Every season good

I didn’t think I would ever want to know about Jeffrey Epstein but this pod cast truth & lies (season 1) was engrossing. The background of the people and witness testimonies made this pod cast really good. The story is horrible. Additionally, the 2 other seasons are equally as good and well reported. I had know idea the number of people the Boston strangler killed and how horrific the crimes were. The pod cast based off the book white hot hate was incredibly engaging and something I knew nothing about. Thank you, looking forward to another season from Truth & Lies.

Great

This season is especially great. Story is riveting - hadn’t heard of it. Dan Day is a remarkable man. Definitely worth hearing his story.

Vapid

Vapid and pointless. Show should require that you huff paint before listening.
