Excellent take on True Crime
There are many podcasts in the True Crime genre; different approaches appeal to different listeners. What I appreciate in Beyond the Blood is the presentation, integrating primary sources/quotes as part of the narrative, a window to the events, and a way for us to relate to those involved. Then, Earthen (who has perhaps the single most awesome name I've ever heard-seriously, that is an Avengers worthy name) provides his thoughts, as a law enforcement officer, in regards to the crime. Hearing his opinions is illuminating, thought provoking, and has given me ideas to consider beyond the specific case in each episode. I'm so glad I found it.
Well researched and no chit chat
I really like the focus on the case and not on the host and inserting chit chat. Very entertaining. Keep it up!
