Love this
This podcast is fantastic. If you have a curiosity in murder and some unsolved cases, then this podcast is one to listen too! I have enjoyed listening to this podcast and found that I listened to just about everyone of them. They do a lot of research into the cases that they cover, which makes you want to learn more about the cases.
International - sign me up!
I love international cases and was so glad to find a new true crime podcast that covers some crimes and mysteries that I’ve never heard of. Dawn & Cole are fabulous, the stories are easy to follow and their voices are wonderful. I hope they’ll start finding new listeners popping up here in the states and from all over because I can tell they put a great deal of effort into the show.
Really good
