Love this podcast!

Currently binging your show and loving it! I started from the beginning and just finished episode 75. Trying to catch up so I can be current. Great show!

Nope

I listen to podcasts in this genre to hear stories, not your politics.

CindyWDST ,

Interesting

Love that the cases are much older and sometimes not so well known. They also have episodes with interesting guests. Interesting and while the cases may be old the stories feel new
