Love it!

Her voice is great. She’s almost always straight to the point but when she’s not it’s only because she’s stating a silly one-liner that is usually exactly what I was thinking. I love this podcast. So glad I found it.

Wow

The true crime podcasts I listen to are all pretty funny (this one isn’t) and of writing this review I’ve only listened to one episode (Episode 6: The Day The Music Died Part 1: Marvin Gaye), and she just dove right in! Gave every detail and was straightforward with the presentation. I loved every second of it!

Making true crime beautiful

Esther is tells stories from every angle and point of view without letting the content drag. Hearing the early lives of predators and killers, listeners learn of the very human beginnings before life takes a dark turn. Some background also gives listeners the opportunity to see what the outcome of broken homes, abuse and neglect can lead to if help isn’t available. The victims stories are told lovingly and are highlighted as the unique people they were/are above the tragedies that ended or altered their lives. That is something that is constantly looked over in true crime story telling. This podcast is compelling, thought provoking and addicting!

Terrible

So disappointed in you guys. Not only is the quality of the audio and content terrible, speculation of events are also wildly exaggerated in some parts, and other important details that are vital to the case are often ignored or disregarded because Esther hasn’t lived a life that has exposed her to more than her small life. Ethnocentrism doesn’t look good on you, E.

Monotone Narration

The stories are ok, but the narration is a terrible monotone and, if you're going to read word from word from a script - the writing needs a polish.

True crime at it’s best!

I’ve been listening for months now and I am all caught up on back issues. This is my favorite go to podcast every day. Easy to hear, I drive a loud truck so I have issues hearing all podcasts but this one is clear and loud enough that I don’t miss out on the story. Looking forward to more episodes

Back to Basics

Basic, straightforward recounting of events and facts. No overselling or opining, just the facts. Well done!

Intriguing and professional

I tried listening to several crime podcasts but this has the best format and production value. The host’s voice is perfect for longer listening.

We’re basically detectives

Love this pod cast and the stories she covers. You can see (or hear should i say) the growth from the 1st episode to the most recent. Keep up the great work!

Not

“Hundreds of hours of true crime podcasts, you are basically a detective”. I dont think this is how that works.
