when a 15 year old child is involved with an adult...it's not a 'relationship. it's child abuse.

Regarding their sponsor - Upstart is terrible. They still base loans on your credit score and nothing else. I tried it myself.

Patricia Hearst was covered on Hostages. Now the case is being covered here too. This week Conspiracy Theories as well as Unexplained Mysteries are both covering Atlantis. For those of us who listen to the bulk of Parcast podcasts, it's disappointing to have shows repeat the same topic. I understand it works for fans who may listen to one show and not the other.

You guys should do a podcast on Gypsey Rose Blanchard. It was just on a crime show not long ago and I thought it would be a good one for Parcast to do either on Female Criminals or on Crimes of Passion

I can't help but notice how sketchy some of your sponsorships are. Betterhelp has been publicly under investigation for fraud :/ taking money and not supplying the help they promised.

JUANA IS CLEARLY DISTURBED! (AND DISGUSTING). EVERYONE has a life story quite often they are sad, painful and depressing. Juana, WAS A COWARDLY Killer! ROBBING AND KILLING ELDERLY WEAKER women that were EQUALLY LOW INCOME!! THEY NEEDED HELP and PLACED their TRUST IN JUANA, UNKNOWINGLY signing their own death certificate. How can you define yourself as a good mother, while being a murderer, liar and a thief? Let This STORY SERVE AS A REMINDER to Not allow strangers into your home, and NEVER judge a book by it's cover!
