really annoying when show host refuses to give any details about the ritual abuse inflicted by the preists...if you are to squeamish to talk about it maybe your in the wrong genre....maybe you should try something safer like....gardening.

I couldn't disagree more, I absolutely loved someone knows something. Maybe the title is wrong for the cases they are in search of but it's a really good podcast.

FYI- "Someone Knows something" is a waste of your time. I listened to the first two seasons and guess what? NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING... I kept hanging in thinking it would get better, but it didn't.
