  • Repeats, Repeats

    Very repetitive podcast. It seems like each episode repeats the same story over and over. They aren’t just recaps either.

  • Ep 46

    I can’t thank you enough for doing this work and making the essential facts available to all at no cost. Lax prosecution of rapists and wife or girlfriend abusers and murderers in South Carolina is incredibly intimidating to all girls and women who know without even asking, that they will not be protected from male violence or defended by the courts if they stand up to it. You also showed in the Murdaugh case how generational change can happen and that it’s one-by-one and not one-and-done. All t... more

  • Michael white privileged murder

    Excellent broadcast it was very annoying to listen to the whole mortgage thing and what he got away with unbelievable what is it with South Carolina and these people it’s really infuriating for somebody who has my own business what I have to do to have a mortgage and qualify for anything. He never works. He’s always backed up by all these people and the banks and really the white privilege is getting old in this country. It’s just what it is with Alex and the rest of them.

  • EXCLUSIVE Access - But only for those with money???

    Really? “EXCLUSIVE access” - I am actually shocked. To me, you’re no better than those you’ve been doing an admittedly excellent job exposing. I feel like gagging on this hypocrisy. “Exclusive” - So you’re putting yourselves in the same position as the wealthy, maybe looking to buy your Edisto beachouse? Two tiers of justice, two tiers of Sunlight. HOW can you be serious? You are journalists/podcasters - but you’re only going to tell the real Colucci story, the full story of this outrageousl... more
