The Bacchis ,

Fascinating

Melinda did a great job! Those of you who did t get past the first episode - she gets better as she goes on. She admits she didn’t know podcasting, but she is surely passionate about this subject. I for one couldn’t stop listening until the end!

Hell Awaits the Obstructors ,

Awesome!

From the beginning the listener can hear the dedication of Ms. Esquibel’s to Tara Calico and Tara’s family. The truth, still obstructed by layers of deceit, nepotism, and abhorrent record-keeping, is within reach. All it will take is one person to stand up and share what they know to be true. All others should still - to this day - be charge with obstruction of justice. (Even though time limits have expired...) I am a God-fearing person and I believe that those who have hurt Tara and have prevented the truth from being revealed cannot fool God. They can twist their lies and stories here on Earth, but their eternity is a different story!

Bluegypsydaisy ,

Couldn’t do it...

She mentions Making a Murder and Serial in the first episode and that pretty much says it all. She tries too hard to make it all sound so dramatic and serious. It’s just a mess and I would rather google it.
