Fan

This podcast has got me hooked! I have listened to so many overseas true crime podcasts but to actually have follow up and clarity on some local cases is FANTASTIC! Thank you Nicole for doing this you have a fan for as long as you around 🌷.

Great podcast

I appreciate how you praise the women brave enough to come forward with assault yet still you provide context to those that didn’t, because there is also a story to be told. I love your objective reporting and yet you still give some personal view points. 5 stars from me.
