Fun show

Just a fun new show to listen to. Episodes keep getting better.

Great Concept!

Love that all the stories have happy endings! I’m not a big fan of true crime, so knowing each story turns out well is a big bonus here. The first two episodes were great- loved the detail and the laughs along the way. Been a fan of Abi since the panalama and here to support! Looking forward to the next installment!

Waaayyy tooo much chatter

I was so excited to see the title of this and so I just started episode one…. 8 minutes into banal banter I tried to scroll forward and now at 12 minutes still no actual story just more inane chitchat (I am sure they are lovely but if you want to just showcase your chatter, set up a podcast for that😉). I don’t listen to podcasts to hear people chat about their days (seriously that is why I Love Outside podcast and a few others that get straight to the story). Not sure I am going to listen.
