This is a great true crime podcast. Episodes get right to the point and the narrative format means no banter or off-topic information. I like the conciseness of it and that only relevant information to the case at hand is presented. A really good selection of cases too.

one thing that bothers me personally. I do not like to listen to unsolved cases. I want to know that the evil one was caught and prosecuted. unsolved should be made clear at the beginning.

so far I really like this podcast. The storys are simply told without a bunch of giggling and bantering with co hosts. I appreciate time not being filled with goofy music too. Good job

Whirlpool is home based in Benton Harbor Michigan and the majority of them were at one time made in Benton Harbor Michigan! Look inside the door and it will tell you that its administration is still in Benton Harbor! Findlay is an extension yes! My dad was a designer engineer for a Whirlpool for 40 years!

Crown attorneys are not elected. ... Regardless of whether the prosecuted matter is a criminal offence or a provincial offence, crown Attorneys represent and argue on behalf of the Crown. In the province of Ontario, there is only one crown attorney appointed by the Attorney General per judicial district.
