What a great podcast. Had me laughing so hard at times. I love how it is fully aware of its lampooning nature of the crime genre. I loved how it also parodied two of my favorite Podcasts. “Reply All”. And “Ear Hustle”. When the actor tried to mimic PJ’s laugh, I couldn’t stop laughing. Yet at times it was fully aware of the somber nature of the genre they are spoofing and also knew how to accurately point out the brokenness of our Justice system. And some sobering thoughts on the journalistic nature to assume endings that are not how the story turns out. Thank you so much for this lovely podcast. Truly a Gem. Thank you for your hard work. It payed off splendidly.

I thought this was true until I read the comments. But then I’ve been watching 90 Day Fiancé, so it’s not much different in terms of credibility.

I'm blown away. This is the greatest story I've heard by far I think. The audio and dramatization makes it better than reading out of a book. However, I'm mildly upset I wasn't actually listening to a real psychopath! I always wondered what they are like. He was convincing though!

I searched as well and found nothing on google. I wonder as well if this was fiction. I love the podcast nonetheless but was confused I found nothing on google.
