The gayslayer/Doug comparison was hysterical! The show is well-researched, and the recommendations are awesome so I can check out further listening if I want a further deep-dive. Looking forward to seeing this podcast grow!
Finally a black true crime podcaster
I am an avid true crime fan but much to my chagrin many of the cases covered on podcasts or tv are about white women. I first heard the host on the Peripheral podcasts and then on Insight. It does my heart well to hear the host call out society for their homophobia and racism. Love this podcast and the host!
Love, a black woman tired of America’s hate
I f@cking love you! You are hilarious and compassionate with just the right amount of sass! Oh, and the way you cover these cases give me just enough info to decide if I want to hear them in depth! Keep it up!
