  • Me, myself and I

    This is a good podcast, although it is mostly cases that has already been covered by Gérard or others. Racial segregation is always mentioned, which wants to make me scream.

  • Excellent Content, unfamiliar cases

    This podcast is well researched, the crimes are all new to me, and the host has a soothing voice. She hits the right tone, and it feels almost like a smart friend telling you about these heinous crimes. I highly recommend it. It’s a new favorite.
