GURL! This podcast has me in STITCHES!

Guuuuuurl!! I'm a relatively new True Crime podcast addict. I got hooked on some of the more serious true crime podcasts out there, and initially I avoided listening to TCO because I heard that it is a comedy-type true crime podcast... I couldn't imagine how the seriousness of true crime stories go together with comedy... BOY WAS I WRONG!! This is oficially my new fav True Crime podcast and I've been hooked ever since the first episode I listened to! Patrick & Gillian are iconic! period. I've joined their patreon feed and it's been pure joy and entertainment. My day at the office flies by listening to them, and I catch myself laughing silently at my desk like a mute mime, trying to contain my laughter. BRILLIANT!
