Urge to Kill

The most heartbreaking and well done podcast I have listened to in a long while. Could not stop listening.

Definitely one of the best podcasts ever!

First let me say this: Your heart will break for everyone affected by this horrific, unbelievable and terribly sad incident. However, because of her great story-telling, the host, Ashley, keeps you interested in every minute of every episode in this podcast by providing high quality interviews and tons of actual recordings. Excellent work, Ashley!
