Great podcast

This is a fun podcast to listen to. The hosts have a great dynamic & the episode layout is engaging.

Hmmm… Not so great

I give them credit for pumping out almost 70 shows but overall the hosts sound like gender studies majors from Portland State. The woman is better than the gentleman, although he seems nice enough, & if left to her own devices and shedding woke armor I think the young lady is capable of a 4* podcast.

Because it can be compared head to head vs several similar discussions the show on Sneha Phillips is probably emblematic of this podcast’s flaws. It would take a while to discuss every problem with their handling of the mystery but suffice it to say the hosts come off as podcasters who believe everything in a place like Portland is peachy keen as opposed to folks able to step back and suggest objective analyses of various facts & situations. Their perspectives are far too often impeded by politically correct blinders to offer more than a mediocre product.

The police & others (her colleagues) asserted Dr Phillips’ false accusation of being groped was almost certainly actuated by a desire for leverage in the situation where her contract was being non-renewed. Your suggestion that she was not lying & discussion of cultural morays in 2001 as if it was 1951 suggests at the very least an embarrassing lack of research and objectivity

Simple, great, perfect

Honestly so good. I listen to a ton of podcasts and I am always trying to find one that is as solid as this one. Literally simple, unedited for the most part. The perfect blend of skepticism, logic & buying into the paranormal stuff when the evidence is there. The Kecksburg Incident is an excellent example of this and I implore you to check it out.
