I am hooked!
I have listened to a number of true crime podcasts but this one really stands out. The host is not merely a fan of the genre but someone with an educational background that really adds depth to her analysis and a scholarly element to the discussion. Her delivery is calm but definitely gives the impression that something bad is about to happen. I started with the introduction and kept listening through every episode in one sitting. I am defintely looking forward to the next episode.
A new look at the true crime genre. Her take on criminals and their behavior is fascinating.
The show is off to a promising start.
Quirky and informative
I found this through a recommendation from the true crime fan club podcast. I like it. Can't wait for more.
