1. Ultra Rachel Maddow - My name is Trudy, a -year young girl from the Pennsylvania mountains (hills to those in Colorado). Leaving for independence at age , I found my voice in Boston. My time as an analytic, active thinker began there and continues. Thank you, Rachel Maddow and the incredibly talented staff for “Ultra”.

2. I NOT MAD ANYMORE - I am back to loving Maddow. I was so mad at her for abandoning us (Only Mondays on MSNBC) for a cushy, lowkey writing job at home. I get it. Home all day with your loved ones drinking hot cocoa while leizurely putting pen to pad whenever the feeling occurs. Excellent job if you can get it. And yes, you earned it. However, I was still mad. I just finished Ultra. I'm not angry anymore. I love Rachel. Thank you.

3. Great but… - A bit more context at every turn would have perfected this bit. Not much but even things like season, weather, current bigotry and mood of country… more about the justifications for the vial actions always help. As with any work that deals in contextualization of an historic event, the psychological justification of the players adds depth and understanding. We do not have to like the players, but knowing their reasoning always helps.

4. Awesome - Rachel you done an magnificent layout of past history. I have listened to this podcast over and over. Because it’s like a book you’re telling us a story that has already happened and it looks like it’s repeating itself. Keep bringing us facts. Don’t let any silence your voice. Keep it coming. And I wish that I could have you on this level and full time on MSNBC. Real talk history is just repeating itself. I thank God that each time the narrative was stopped again.

5. Great job - This is a great effort to present to us, what the Germans were plotting in the ’s in the USA. This series should go to every single one of us, should be broadcast in a different languages, in Spanish, for example, nobody absolutely nobody communicate to us all this, hispanic media do not cover this at all! Great job, Rachel scared me at the beginning that she will stop the RMS, and I say, oh no, again, few years ago we stop listening Countdown with Keith Olverman, and the Brian Williams retires it, and now Rachel, but thanks that she still with us!!! Go for!!!!

6. Phenomenal podcast - Having been a Republican until Trump won the primary, I wasn’t aware of what sedition look like at a national level. This is also the first podcast I have listened to. I was not only impressed but spent all day between listening in the car and listening at home. It was mesmerizing, between the sound clips of the politicians, spouses, press, and lawyers to the suspense built up in conveying what happened in the s, and it all came together so seamlessly! I especially appreciated the extra artifacts on the website as well as the continual shoutout to the Library of Congress, which I never tried accessing before and am now addicted. I cannot wait for your next historical podcast!!!

7. Ultra - I thought todays happenings with right wing-nuts in Congress was scary, little did I know this was nothing new. It’s something all Americans should be cognizant of, but we know that’s a pipe dream. As disgusting as it find this, I’m going to make it my mission to learn more about the tactics of right wing propaganda so that I might help others who may be hoodwinked by far right nuts who are looking for followers. We are living in a very scary time ………………….. again.
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 00:26:11 GMT
8. Stunned - I binge-listened to all of the episodes of Ultra. He and I have to admit, shamefully, that none of the information I learned from the series was in my knowledge base prior to listening. It was all news to me. Most of it happened years before I was born but that’s not really an excuse. And now today, we are faced with a similar crisis of democracy, perhaps one even more dangerous than we saw in the late s and s, and it seems like this is the kind of information that everyone should have as a citizen. The facts laid out in this program sound so foreign to my modern ears that it feels like historical fiction. But I know that Ultra conveys true events. this podcast is incredibly well done, infinitely listenable, and important. Nice job to all involved.

9. Stop what you’re Doing and listen to this! - This should be required listening for Our entire country. Rachel never disappoints. This work is incredible. I’m still digesting what I’ve learned here and thinking on how to apply it to life today. Thank you, Rachel, for this work and for shining light into this dark place in our history. We can and must do better.

10. Incredibly researched but music is AWFUL and distracting. - Hate to focus on the negative but being a music supervisor for film and tv I’m shocked these sound cues got through the final edit. The music is really really bad and the sound levels are cranked up so high it distracts from maddows wonderful reporting. At one pint while listening, I thought a bug was buzzing around my ear at only to discover it was a screeching g violin in the background of episode? Lol. Please edit out this music so we can just hear her reporting

11. Never say myself, just say me. - Rachel, I love this podcast but when you say “this episode was written by myself”. It is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. It is simply wrong, “written by me” is correct.
We could banish the words myself and yourself from our lexicon and never miss them. Just say me and you. Try it. I could have said “try it yourself” and be correct but yourself is superfluous. It almost always is.
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 18:33:32 GMT
12. Scary parallels to today, and mesmerizing - Every episode was spellbinding. But recognizing the amazing parallels to what has been happening today is scary as can be. Forewarned is forearmed, though, so I am grateful for this history lesson. Will be keeping a closer eye on the news, the right wing newscasters and our politicians who might be trying to use this history as a battle plan. And we will be sure to support and aid those entities who will again, have to fight to make sure fascism is never successful in this country.

13. A request for season two - Wonderful production compellingly presented. I'd love to hear about Olde Gimlet Eye (Smedly Darlington Butler), the formation and original purpose of the House Un-American Activities Committee, and "The Business Putsch". You got close this season... mentioned HUAC.. let's go again! Season Two! Specifically I've always been curious about all those sealed testimonies from the business leaders who were caught out and never faced any consequences. Thanks for your work.
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 16:40:06 GMT
14. This is such an Import and timely piece of work - Told in a way that no one other than Rachel can do. Starts with small stories that thread into others that eventually bring you to the final conclusion. You always know with Rachel, to listen as this is going somewhere. We listened to your QA with Laurence but we were traveling back from the UK and didn’t have time to put in a question. My question Rachel would be this, many listen to Podcasts, and read books but take a lesson from the / Committee make a movie if only a Netflix version but better yet work with someone like Steven Spielberg. This has to reach more people this is so “now” and a lesson that we cannot fail to miss “again”. Well done to you, and your amazing team for a tremendous piece of work. We watch you always even when we’re in the UK we so miss you and know that what you’re doing is so important.

15. Wanda - I binged-listened because I could not stop wanting to know ‘what’s happening next’. It is sad that this portion of history did repeat itself, and what was disheartening, a lot of them got away with their treasonous ways for years. Thank God our legal and judicial methods are better suited to handle that and present-day types of lawlessness, cruelty and hatred. That and this type of historical behaviors can not and must not repeat themselves as we stand up to crush it and eradicate it! Happy Listening!

16. Rachel Maddox’s “Ultra” - Absolutely fascinating program! I was glued to every episode and learned so much about the history of fascism and anti-semitism in this country by far right extremists sadly parading as Christians. This history brought us to where we are today and provides a clear understanding of what it takes to combat this threat to our democracy; for the court system alone is not enough. BRAVO and THANK YOU Rachel! Brilliant!

17. Blind spot - This podcast puts researched flesh on the mini series “Plot Against America”. I live in San Diego and passed many times by a huge mural of Charles Lindbergh on the way to our airport, Lindbergh Field. It has since been removed and the airport renamed. My ignorance of the events, in the thirties and forties, of persons with the character danger of the Lindbergh ilk astounds me. Thank you Rachael and team for your research and illumination of history I should have been aware of but was not. Respectfully!!!!

18. Loved this podcast - I admire all your work as well researched written intriguingly and entertaining. I’d LOVE it if you dig into Roy Cohn’s story as follow up. From McCarthy hearings thru Nixon, Trump and AIDS. I could listen even if it turned into dozen podcasts because everything I’ve read about him always seems as though the whole story is missing
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 16:05:32 GMT
19. Master Class - Rachel Maddow has accomplished an astonishingly brilliant series that is fascinating, educational, entertaining, and inspiring all at once! She consistently manages to draw out the drama and intensity of historical events that are otherwise looked over or forgotten. Court transcripts come alive with her narration, highlighting all the incredible and ridiculous antics of those trying to subvert justice and democracy. It’s remarkable that this segment of history did not slip the the cracks to be forgotten but instead has come to light at just the right moment. Serendipitously .
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 11:00:30 GMT
20. Brilliant Indeed - Thank you ultra is excused and hinged on every human emotions heightened! Including the angus and pain of injustice . One I personally can relate with in this age there has been to much of acting out for this to just be “go along to get along “ in Washington. There’s something more holding people to commitment to every talking point and pushing them onto Americans now. I believe money is supporting talking points, I also agree with your final summary Rachel, and grateful to see Americans are stepping up and showing accountability is alive, slow, but I can live with that .
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 09:22:59 GMT
21. Love it but music too loud - Please have your sound engineer look at the voice to background music sound levels. Plucky violin and especially the scratchy (somewhat annoying) moody violin is loud enough to be distracting. Music needs to stay in the background, not make hearing the brilliant script difficult. Other than that, a fascinating story.

1. One of my favorites - This podcast has been one of my favorite things to listen to over the years. Listening to Shawn and Andrew navigate life, parenthood, and also have a blend of guests that leaves you feeling like you just listened to friends talking to hours. The podcast leaves me refreshed and inspired.
Mon, 05 Dec 2022 04:25:28 GMT
2. Wholesome Content - Shawn and Andrew speak genuinely about their experience with their relationship and about their family. They provide a true perspective of what life truly is like. Their comfort with speaking about reality is extremely refreshing. I love this podcast and it has changed the way I see things in my own life.
Mon, 05 Dec 2022 04:19:01 GMT
3. Real and Relatable! - I love listening to this podcast! The first episode I listened to was one where Andrew makes a little comment about how Shawn’s always cleaning his side of the bathroom while hers is always a mess. You could tell he was a little annoyed and took it like his side needs to be perfect while hers gets to be messy. Shawn simply asked him if he knew why she did that and it was because she knows he likes things clean and tidy and her side being a mess doesn’t bother her. I have never heard something that described my relationship with my fiancé better It just stuck with me and from there I went back to the beginning of the episodes and have been listening ever since. Love them!
Mon, 05 Dec 2022 04:01:06 GMT
4. Best duo - I love everything Shawn and Andrew stand for and I love how real and transparent they are. Their stories personalities life advice make for the perfect combo. And the best part of it all is that they unashamedly are outspoken about their faith in Jesus in a world that tries to silence so many. Thank you guys!!

1. Wonderful - I found this podcast a few months ago and I’ve been binging it ever since. I didn’t start with this true crime podcast, but I prefer this one. I really appreciate how concisely and objectively the stories are told. I like that in under an hour I can get all the details and I don’t have to wade through inane banter and private family jokes that are so off task that I get lost and am unable to follow the storyline. I also really appreciate that. Ashley seems to really care about helping people and brings attention to unsolved cases in hopes that they may be solved. Thank you and keep up the good work. I hope Brit is doing well !
P.s. I love Ashley flowers calming voice. It doesn’t surprise me at all about the anxious dog who would only be calm, listening to Crime Junkie.
Mon, 05 Dec 2022 01:00:17 GMT
2. Interesting Podcast - Such a great true crime podcast! They do such a good job giving all the information about each case! This podcast is interesting to listen to and I love how they bring awareness to cases that may not be well known! This podcast is definitely one to add to your true crime obsession!

3. My Childhood - Not sure if this is weird to say but I grew up on crime junkies. Ever since they started putting out episodes (I think I was ) I’ve been a dedicated listener along with my mom. We are both crime junkies. I feel like this podcast has taught me to be safe. And the best part it it’s not just a whole bunch of joking and chatting. They get straight to the point so they don’t lose my interest. Keep making episodes and get better britt

4. Obsessed!! - Ok, my husband and I did a road trip home to Texas after our wedding in Sacramento and we stumbled upon this podcast as a mutual obsession with true crime documentaries. Both he and I had never listen to podcasts so this was all new to us. From episode , we were HOOKED!!! Obsessed is probably more like it. Thank you for our new mutual favorite podcast, and for making a hour car ride eerily enjoyable!! You guys are phenomenal!

I have been listening to you guys since and now I have my boyfriend hooked too. We listen to the podcast on long road trips together. Please please please do an episode on the Toy Box Killer.

6. I want to like this podcast.... - But ehhh. There are several aspects of this podcast that make me cringe. The way Ashley gets overly dramatic when describing details of a story. Also, when Britt chimes in to ask questions, Ashley comes across as condescending towards her at times. It seems like a less organic version of MFM, down to the pet sign off and forced catchphrase.
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 11:54:43 GMT
7. Amazing - I love this pod cast!!!! And usually I never listen to podcasts cause they just don’t entertain me as well as the crime junkie podcast does. On Monday (the th of December) is my birthday and I just can’t believe I’ve been listening to crime junkie for years now. I love true crime and I am just so interested in solving crimes and other things. I just wanted to say you are amazing and that you really know how to put the image into the heads of the person listening to your pod casts. Keep up the good work and like always you are amazingly good at doing pod casts!!!
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 23:41:39 GMT
8. Co-host - I love the show but I think you need a co-host. Although I feel bad for Britt’s current struggles, she’s a behind the scenes person. You need someone dynamic, who can give you natural dialogue. I get being a perfectionist and wanting everything to be scripted so there’s no surprises but some things that shouldn’t be scripted. Still love the show and listening .
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 01:31:23 GMT
9. Fav podcast - I usually can’t listen to podcasts because they’re all over the place with so many different opinions, but Ashley (and Britt) do a great job and sticking to the facts when delivering stories! Thank you for making my dreaded hour road trips back home more bearable! I will forever be a Crime Junkie :)

10. Obsessed! - I’m obsessed! The storytelling is fantastic, the interplay between the Ashley and Brit is stellar, and the production is top-notch! I listen to all the true crime podcasts and this is definitely top ! Thank you, ladies, for coming along with me on errands and chores, and making the mundanity of life a little more tolerable!
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 14:46:30 GMT
11. Used to be a great podcast - I used to love this podcast, but now it’s just an okay podcast. Ashley always gets riled up when law enforcement, CPS, etc. didn’t do what she thinks they should have done with their involvement in the case. Sometimes it’s understandable & warranted, but not always. As someone who does think there’s room for improvement in law enforcement & as a former CPS social worker who knows that the system is far from perfect, it’s also easy for someone who has never done those jobs to sit there years later with a lot more information available to her now while she’s in her recording studio to criticize first responders’ & social workers work when they didn’t have the luxury of having all of that information while they were out in the field actually doing the work. Not to mention the rules & laws that they are required to follow - some of Ashley’s suggestions completely disregard that & her attitude is as if they’re just lazy. No - they have to follow rules, their superiors’ orders, & they’re overworked.

12. Crime Junkie Lost Another Listener - I was first introduced to crime junkie a couple of years ago. Up until the last year or so, I was obsessed with crime junkie and I couldn’t stop listening to it. The anticipation and excitement that came when a new episode dropped each Monday was intense. . However, the show has changed recently and I don’t find it intriguing or interesting anymore. Lots of personal opinions and poor writing style, each week the episode content and content descriptions are the same. I went from being a loyal crime junkie fan to a person who dreads the release of a new episode each week, which is sad because I used to love it so much. Sorry Crime Junkie, you’ve lost another fan.
Tue, 29 Nov 2022 18:01:03 GMT
13. Crime Junkie - This podcast is one of my favorite podcast! They do such a great job telling the stories and enjoy listing to both their voices! It’s a must listen if you like to follow crimes or even have slight interest in cases. I like that they go through cases I have never even heard of. They are the best!

14. Disappointed - The last episode should have came with a warning. Child abuse and death is major merit for a warning. The episode left me sick. CAnt believe you put that out there without a warning. Had to have been on purpose. Please fix it for future listens asap. And no concern for that sweet innocent baby. Forget the negligent moms unsolved case, focus on the baby!!! Ughhh disgusted

Trump.

1. Another Shining Star in the MSW Constellation - Allison and Andrew are off to a great start recounting how we got to this point. They’re honest, insightful and funny while conveying the gravity of the situation and what’s at stake in the Special Counsel investigation by Jack Smith. I plan on listening to every episode carefully. So glad Allison decided to do this - she and Andrew are the right people for the project.
Mon, 05 Dec 2022 02:35:22 GMT
2. Can’t wait for more episodes - Dr. Gill and Andrew McCabe are a fantastic team: meticulous, but to the point, with great simple explanations and outlining a very important (and complicated) investigation. You couldn’t ask for any better duo covering this and helping the public navigate the nuances of this process. I feel so informed after listening. I’m so excited they’re doing this! Can’t wait for more episodes!
Mon, 05 Dec 2022 01:12:55 GMT
3. Factual Accounting of The Jack Smith - Truly looking forward to hearing about the investigation and exactly what we can expect to come from this besides just saying something unprecedented happened but then nothing being done to hold those accountable for their actions. Currently a lot of people (ME) believe there is indeed hred people that are indeed above the law, so really looking forward to your take on this investigation and what is ultimately the goal going forward to start getting the right leaders currently house members and current senate member held accountable and stripped of their seats. These people still holding seats in our government are a literal slap in the face to all the regular citizens that we know if we had done one of iota of what has been done we would be a maximum security prison modeling the local fashionable prison jumpsuit
Mon, 05 Dec 2022 00:12:05 GMT
4. Thank You - Dr. Gill and Mr. McCabe are both well qualified and both particularly gifted in translating the legalese of the process we are all witnessing of investigating and bringing to court the convoluted cast of characters who work like slippery fish to avoid justice in their cases, especially in showing how they affect the American way of life and the expectations of citizens who deserve to understand the high stakes in a battle for maintaining the rule of law to protect civilian citizens and those who aspire to political office. We need and deserve to understand the process we are witnessing.

Excellent Team! - What a Dream Team — Allison Gill (of ‘Mueller She Wrote’ and ‘Daily Beans’ fame) and Andrew McCabe (former Acting Director of the FBI) combine forces weekly to illuminate all that is yet to come as Special Counsel Jack Smith heads the DOJ investigations into the Mar-a-Lago documents case and the January th investigation. Bring on the popcorn!

6. You don’t Know Jack - I have been listening to MSW since the kitchen table days. In fact, they were the first pod thatI listened to regularly. You Don’t Know Jack is AG’s latest in her mission of truth in politics. Andy McCabe is a wonderful co-host with all his experience,
With all the noise and lies flying around this is a wonderful way to start my Sunday. Thank you both for keeping us informed with the truth.
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 11:19:47 GMT
7. No one is above the law. - So glad AG and Andrew are stepping up and keeping us informed about this special counsel investigation. The former guy has done so many illegal things, the DOJ has got to clarify this to the American people with legal actions. No one is above the law - otherwise - we don't have a country anymore.
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 10:38:14 GMT
8. I’m tired - So sick of knowing that wealthy wyte men will never be held accountable.. like literally so tired.. there is a double justice system here in the USA. I have absolutely no confidence in the justice system. And garland went on tv and said no one is above the law but obviously there are people above the law.

We also discuss existing and emerging tools for measuring and changing how our nervous system works. Dr. Andrew Huberman is a tenured Professor of Neurobiology and Ophthalmology at Stanford School of Medicine. His laboratory studies neural regeneration, neuroplasticity, and brain states such as stress, focus, fear, and optimal performance. For...

1. Great when sticking to science and experience - I appreciate the episodes that are very well researched and especially the interviews with researchers who are actually experts in their topic. I would prefer less speculation and more focus on science and experts with scientific expertise as well as personal experience (sometimes it has been obvious that Andrew and/or the interviewee cannot effectively discuss the experience of someone that has ADHD or complex trauma, for example). Occasionally, I feel that Andrew talks a bit too much when he's interviewing and would prefer that he keep questions brief and comments minimal, so the expert can speak more. Please do another episode on salt/sodium with the science showing how harmful it is for cardiovascular health (I could not believe there were any legit studies showing health-promoting benefits...must have been funded by the processed food industry). I got a lot out of the episodes on dopamine and sleep. Thank you very much for providing valuable tools!
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 20:45:27 GMT
2. For All Knowledge/Experience Ranges! - Huberman does a phenomenal job of describing tools, studies, protocols, biology, etc. in terms that you can deeply understand without having a background in biology/anatomy/general science. He takes time to explain the most complex biological processes in extremely simple, understandable terms. The content is actionable and he provides unbiased recommendations for all depending on your desired outcomes. The duration of each episode was a bit daunting at first, but every second is worth it. Thank you, Huberman for providing this resource!
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 05:19:22 GMT
3. Could be better - Too repetitive, long, pedantic, professorial, and did I say repetitive? :) - hours is crazy. Please just get to the main points without all the background details and tangents. Or make a separate episode that’s minutes, and just gets right to the main points - eg how do I increase dopamine.

4. I never miss an episode! - This is one of my favorite podcasts. Dr. Huberman has hosted some amazing episodes about scienced based nutrition topics, amazing guests, and incredible actionable takeaways. It has changed the way I live my life. Every Monday Dr. Huberman and his staff have provided me with an intention for the week, with new insights and reminders of how to enhance my overall wellbeing.

5. Insightful and interesting - I’ve been listening to this podcast almost since it started. It’s amazing. Very useful source of knowledge, information, and references for my classes. And extremely insightful on practical things one can do to improve health and wellness. Not to mention that it is just really fun and enjoyable for those who, like me, are interested in the nervous and endocrine systems.

6. One correction - Appreciated your invaluable convo with Dr. Layne Norton! Just one comment re: protein. Take away message was .g pro/kg which may work for most but when a person is morbidly overweight (e.g. ’” woman weighing or Kg), this calculates to g pro/d which is FAR in excess to what she needs. Lean body mass was not mentioned in this segment & it should have been. Otherwise, excellent info. Agree re: fiber, fiber, fiber!!

7. Lex Fridman episode - I have really enjoyed many episodes of Huberman Lab and this was a great guest. It was very cringy however for them to tiptoe around Andrew Tate. Why would you even consider giving space on your small platform for this already hugely popular misogynist? I can empathize with the people who are sucked in by Tate, Petersen, Trump - but I’d rather understand their thinking than hear from their so-called heroes. Yuck.

8. Best podcast - I just want to say thank you for all the knowledge that you share can honestly say a couple of your podcast have changed my life and saved it I was in a dark and depressed place in my life and it gave me the tools and power to get out of it. I don’t think you will read this but I just really want to say thank-you Andrew. I don’t think I would be here right now if I never found this Chanel!!!
Sun, 27 Nov 2022 10:58:34 GMT
9. So many words, so little useful information - I guess Huberman means well, but the podcast is an endless firehose of fancy biochemistry terminology and conveys very little actionable information. He explains things like neurons and receptors but it never leads to anything useful. For the vast majority of the audience who don’t have a degree in biochemistry, % of the content goes over their heads. On the few occasions where there are specific recommendations, e.g. supplements for sleep, they are completely ineffective.

10. Must listen! - I love your stuff! I listen while I’m at the gym and feel like I’m learning and improving my health. My late father was Dipolar and your episode on the disorder really opened my eyes and helped me understand what he was going through. Your great work has helped me in many ways. Thank you for that.Keep it up!

11. Life Changing Stuff - Absolute bombshell of a podcast. Perfect duration, subject matter everyone on earth should care about, far beyond entertaining. I incessantly talk about what I’ve newly learned with everyone I know and care about. My life has changed since becoming a subscriber. I sound like a bot- I know, but I’ve lost weight, cut back on drinking, now eat TONS of (and deeply care about) prebiotics, put my lights on blast before I am able to be outside in the morning to regulate my dopamine…I could go on forever. The topics can be understood by laymen and those of the Big Brain order ( ) The intermediate crew likely absorb even more from an episode. Though will not be wearing sunglasses in my home the info is applicable not just because someone smarter than me told me about it, but because the “why” of it all is explained extensively. GREAT WORK!

12. My New Favorite Podcast!!! - I have always been into neuroscience and I finally decided to get my MS and decided to pursue Neuroscience over the other choice. No only has finding this podcast opened my eyes to so many more opportunities in this career field and different avenues that I want to explore; it has probably driven me to want to go into research and pursue a PhD. Thank you SOO much for the work that you do! I just joined the Premium membership as well, I can’t wait to keep learning!
Fri, 11 Nov 2022 03:08:46 GMT
13. LOVED EPISODE !! - I GEEKED OUT (Literally and figuratively) when I saw that Andrew Huberman would be interviewing Layne Norton! Two of my favorite brainiacs on one episode. How could a girl get so lucky Thanks for this episode! I love all of the content on this podcast especially ones digging into alcohol, and marijuana. I just wanted to share two of my biggest takeaways from episode - To maintain weightloss or overcome and addiction you literally have to change your identity And some of the best things come from really challenging moments. Thank you

14. P.E. In schools - I greatly appreciate all the scientific info this podcast provides. Just fyi, in CA, PE is absolutely still required through at least half of high school. Actually, many districts starting prioritizing PE even more by funding PE teachers starting at Kindergarten or Grade . PE is definitely a priority in California. (in reference to conversation with Dr. Layne Norton)
Tue, 08 Nov 2022 18:19:26 GMT
15. Finally. Science. - I’m a recovering Dave Asprey and Ben Greenfield listener. I’m grateful for someone who puts his credentials on the line and digs into the literature. The only thing I’d fault Huberman for is giving too much air time to Mr Resveratrol and NMN. I wish he’d pushed back on his sketchy claims.
Tue, 08 Nov 2022 15:00:49 GMT
16. Incredibly helpful - I decided a few weeks ago to start listening to episodes every Saturday morning. I have gained lots of new information that I’m using to improve my life holistically. I try to tell others about the stuff I’ve learned because it’s been so helpful. The credibility factor is huge for me, and I know this is a great source. I briefly attended an osteopathic medical school, but it didn’t work out for me, and I’m in a different career now. I so wish I had found these episodes years ago. Listening to this gives me so much gratification.
Sat, 05 Nov 2022 16:25:39 GMT
17. Thorough yet digestible - Andrew Huberman is well-educated and articulates complex topics in an easy to understand manner. Using available research, he will discuss experiences or habits that are common and provides a holistic explanation that allows the listener to understand the physiological implications and how it can affect our day to day life. I am not one to enjoy podcasts typically, so I am pleasantly surprised!
Fri, 04 Nov 2022 04:20:40 GMT
18. Potent information from a neuroscientist and Bodhisattva - This podcast lives up to its promise! Easy to tell that Dr. Huberman has a wealth of knowledge and just wants to use it to help people. Every episode gives science-based advice on sleep, meditation, mental and overall health, and makes me feel empowered to live better.
Thu, 03 Nov 2022 20:43:44 GMT
19. Repetitive - Disturbing repetitive. Says the same thing multiple times per episode. The episodes are unnecessarily long because he repeats himself so many times. Feels like a time travel experiment where your real life has ground to a stuporous halt because a podcast is circling and circling and circling through the same material for so long. Clearly there’s no editor because any person who may have tried to persuade the creator that nobody needs to hear him say the same thing uncountable times in one episode has quit in shame. If you feel your life slipping away with nothing to show for it, you might just be listening to this podcast repeating itself. Missing the days of a record player getting stuck in a groove? this podcast might be for you. The podcast equivalent of being stuck in a traffic circle. Forever. Seriously. Why listen to anyone with this little self awareness?
Thu, 03 Nov 2022 15:29:25 GMT
20. Help with growth - What is the normal guy. But I have a desire to grow and become a better person in any and every area of my life possible. Listening to this podcast excites me and encourages me to keep exploring avenues of myself that I never have before. It excites me to think about reaching my potentialEither with the information from this podcast or with the ideas that he gives me when I listen. Very thankful for all this free information.
Tue, 01 Nov 2022 22:35:51 GMT
21. Becoming a fan but... - I am becoming a fan but... The blind spots in terms of "we just do this to animals because..." and how cannabis remains scheduled but there's no acknowledgement about how that relates to how other drugs that are discussed on the show are scheduled severely limits how seriously I can take you. Enjoyable and interesting but you lack a certain amount of self-awareness.

1. Please understand how this works! - For all the people ( I see it every new week ) who are complaining on having to pay for the next episode or the last episode. Please understand how this works. The episodes come out once a week. The first week they are out they are subscription. You have to wait an extra week and then they are free. For example episode came came out on / - that means next week / ( week later) it too will be free.

2. Not the worst but not the best - I am enjoying this podcast but I agree that it jumps around too much and feels like it ends abruptly each episode. I agree with others about Nancy. It’s not just her voice but her ego!! She’s really not likeable. She didn’t deserve to have a murder plot against her- obviously- but you can tell she is a total nightmare. Sorry!!!
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 22:44:07 GMT
3. Not as interesting as most DL special series - Keith Morrison is top notch as always but maybe it’s just me but the story seems kind of bland and uninteresting. I’ve loved most of their special series and this one is by far the most boring. Maybe they’re pushing for paid content a little too hard.
Wed, 30 Nov 2022 21:37:16 GMT
4. Subscription Fees, nah,…. - I have always loved true crime stories, always loved Dateline and all of the story tellers. However, I’d rather listen to commercials, ones that I can’t opt to fast forward through, than to pay for a subscription. Sorry. Too many options out there. Already too much inflation to now pay for something else.
Wed, 30 Nov 2022 13:43:31 GMT
5. Don’t listen to the crankies! - This show is great! You have to pay for an episode… big deal, it’s entertainment. Get more for your money and subscribe so you don’t get ads. Story is super complex but they do a great job telling it concisely. Keith Morrison is the best storyteller! I love these more in depth series Dateline has been doing.
Wed, 30 Nov 2022 07:15:17 GMT
6. Subscription issue - If you can’t listen to the episodes without subscribing even if it’s not early access and it’s supposed to be available, go to the episode webpage and you can listen from the browser for free. It won’t let me listen to episode without subscribing but it let’s me listen to episode . Dumb.

7. Keith deserves stars - I remember this dateline episode but I didn’t remember how grating Nancy was. Of course, she doesn’t deserve any type of harm but imagine that voice degrading you frequently. It was a lot. I feel so bad for their kids. No way do you get over your dad doing this to your mom and then dropping you like you never existed. I’ll listen to anything Keith reports!
Tue, 29 Nov 2022 15:07:36 GMT
8. So sad - It KILLS me to have to write this because I ADORE Keith Morrison, but the whole episodes for free then I have to pay to hear the end? No thank you. Not even for Keith.
I’m not ok with bait and switch tactics. I fully understand wanting to get paid, but podcasts that are more popular than yours are free, so why on Earth would I give you money?
If I’m gonna pay for a podcast, I’ll do it for a tiny outfit that needs the funds. Which I do. Because they actually need it to keep going.
Dateline is not hurting for dollars.
You have the money from the advertising on your tv show, and the advertisements on your podcast.
How much is enough for you?
Is there … ever enough?
I just think it’s kind of gross that during this time of high inflation, you thought it would be a great idea to tease us with free episodes then have the audacity to try to charge us to listen to the last /force us to get an overpriced subscription to Dateline. Gross.
Whoever came up with this idea should be fired twice. I’m disappointed, but not surprised.
I’m unsubscribing guys. To this and your regular Dateline podcast. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

9. MONEY - You’re not start this series, you’ll be highly disappointed, when you have listen to three episodes, and out of the blue, and all of the sudden that you have to pay money to hear the next one. Always enjoyed that line. I didn’t think it was about degree with them, but I guess it is with everything.
Mon, 28 Nov 2022 22:03:43 GMT
10. I can’t take Nancy!! - Great story telling by Keith Morrison of course but Nancy is insufferable! Her voice is cringe worthy. She obviously loves that this happened to her so she can be the center of attention. Overly dramatic. Over tells her story. And when she had known Joe the detective at the time for about minutes and she says that she saw a piece of paper with handwriting she thought she recognized she “grabbed Joe’s arm and said”. Come on lady. You shouldn’t be murdered but I can see why the husband wanted a divorce.

In the early 1970s, the future of abortion in America was far from settled. Roe v. Wade would change everything, though few knew it at the time. For the seventh season of Slate’s Slow Burn, host Susan Matthews explores the path to Roe—a time when more Republicans than Democrats supported abortion rights. You’ll hear the forgotten story of the first woman ever to be convicted of manslaughter for having an abortion, the unlikely Catholic power couple who helped ignite the pro-life movement, ...

1. Abortion- Let’s Not Forget - Why is everyone ignoring the facts here? Surely you know abortion was started by Margaret Sanger, a true white rascist who began Planned Parenthood to abort black babies to control the black population. Why, oh, why do blacks continue to want abortions and even fight for their rights for abortion in light of this? I do not understand.
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 15:58:32 GMT
2. Just writing this to counter all the fools on here - It’s incredible to me how people feel the need to control other peoples body’s and how fervently they will fight other people and their OWN beliefs. You can do whatever you want to your own body but leave your thoughts and laws off mine. Men especially need to SIT DOWN for once in their lives. My body, my choice.

3. Dishonest - Firstly, i just witnessed my iphone’s app independently give this podcast stars on my behalf, with no input from myself. I caught it and adjusted it. But now i know how they have manipulated this to the top of podcast list. Reality is not what it seems my friends. This show is further proof. The creators have spent no time discussing how Ann, since the trial, has officially stated, on the record , she lied about the “r” word in hopes to sway the court. Similar to how this podcast embellished details, stretched facts, and manipulated figures to “honey-dikk” the listener. Regardless, facts wont stop a million democrats from acting like experts. I implore you to do your own research!!!

4. Trash - I’m a woman. Anything that supports abortion as “healthcare” and a “woman’s right” is trash at best. Women are better than this and deserve better - women deserve the truth! I personally work with women who have had abortions and almost every single one of them has been put into depression by it. They feel they were lied to when they were told this choice was what was best for them if they wanted it. When we determine murder is a right we degrade women and lie to them. No way around it.

5. It’s not your body - To Rebecca.riot Actually, Professor Gordon of the Mayo Clinic says, quote, “by all criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from conception.” Professor Roth from Harvard medical says, quote, “ it is scientifically correct to say life begins at conception”. The science clearly supports the fact that a baby in the womb is a life. And even if the science is wrong, when does life begin? I would assume you don’t know, meaning an abortion is essentially throwing a grenade in a room without know if anyone is inside. Abortion is, by definition, murder.

6. David Duke Season - I am from Louisiana and lived in New Orleans for many years and had no idea about the complexity surrounding David Duke. I appreciate that the journalist is from the area, because so many people want to come and tell Louisiana stories who really can’t grasp what it means to truly be immersed in the culture. They get caught up in the folkloric atmosphere and forget that real, actual people live here, who aren’t just props for their message. This podcast is wonderfully researched and fair. The interviews are such high quality and give everyone, even the repulsive players, a chance to speak for themselves.

7. This got podcast of the year?? - First it’s Apple trying to remove Twitter and now it’s this garbage that they’ve decided to elevate and make their podcast of the year? I don’t think Steve Jobs vision for this company was to turn it into a political pawn. Garbage podcasts like these are why we continue to be divided as a society. One side always blaming the other and painting them out to be evil. Are we not smarter than this? Sheeple at its prime

It has no voice to tell you how he/she feels but it needs it’s mommy. Maybe your not in a place right now where you can properly raise a baby, that’s okay there are millions of ppl out there who would love to adopt your beautiful baby! Abortion is murder and you don’t know how awful you will feel if you take that baby’s life. It will cause depression and a deep since of loss. Plz don’t take your baby’s life. Just think, that life that you just ended could have been the cure to cancer. That one life that you decided not to save could have very well saved millions

10. Abortion is healthcare - Dear John Doe ,
You obviously don’t know what it is to menstruate, have a pregnant body, or give birth. You’re also clearly not a doctor, obstetrician, nor a gynecologist. You don’t know the myriad ways pregnancies can go wrong and threaten the life of the pregnant person. You also don’t know squat about biology, because life does NOT begin at conception. That is a strictly religious belief and does not belong in legislating, nor in a uterus that does not belong to you.
You don’t know what it’s like to be a single mother in this country facing insane housing costs, childcare costs, rising food prices, formula shortages, minimum wages, and the stigma of being a single mother, or a woman in general. You have all the care for a clump of forming cells, but none for the human beings right in front of your face. Your opinion is fed by disinformation and mysoginy, and you can shove it where the sun don’t shine.

11. Stellar reporting of a critical piece of women’s history and rights in America - This was a truly captivating season of Slow Burn and one that felt really timely given the recent Supreme Court action to overturn Roe. There is so much history here, and the episodes are thick with details, first-hand accounts, and documentation, yet it is woven together in a profoundly relatable and human way that honors the stories and experiences shared. It left me with the unsettling feeling of deja vu and a sense that we may have to dig into the Roe playbook yet again to secure rights that should have never been in question or politicized to begin with - the right to personal liberty, privacy, bodily autonomy. It’s clear over time that - to some - these rights were never considered inalienable for women. Thank you for this important work.
Sat, 30 Jul 2022 13:31:44 GMT
12. Outstanding - This series was extremely well-researched, and should be part of every high school history curriculum. Not only it is enlightening about trailblazing women in our history, but it also offers invaluable insights into popular culture at the time and the operations of the Supreme Court. I can’t recommend this podcast highly enough. Kudos to Slate and Susan Matthews and the team. It should win an award.
Fri, 01 Jul 2022 16:02:11 GMT
13. Was hoping to learn more on the history and topic - The program has an obvious agenda, Season episode : : - People on the pro-life side called saline aborted fetuses as ‘candy apple babies’. I can see how that plays into the narrative but I think it is as a bit general. I liked some of their seasons, but this is a bit silly.

14. Good content, f’ing distracting - Yes, I am old, and I have dropped my share of f-bombs in my life, but I don’t like hearing them sprinkled into otherwise intelligent and civil content. It isn’t exactly offensive, just unnecessary. I know it is becoming expected in the speech of the young but it lowers the tone and diminishes the presentation. Keep up the good reporting, just clean up the unnecessary profanity.

15. BEST podcast - Simply great stuff. Writing, narrating, research, just perfect. One thing though...keep in mind, as President Ford himself said, inherent in the act of pardoning someone, and the acceptance of that pardon, is an admission of guilt. In other words, you can’t pardon an innocent person. Nixon always denied he did anything illegal; by accepting Ford’s pardon, he ended up admitting his guilt. Ford isn’t as dumb as people think.
Even Woodward and Bernstein refer to him as a great patriot for pardoning Nixon.

16. Booo - Replaced my five star rating with a one star rating once you had to pay for it starting in season . The cherry on top is that for one, it still shows I have unplayed episodes (like notifications) with no option to set as played or delete for episodes that I can’t listen to anyway, and then second it only lets you listen to random episodes for free, which is the stupidest thing ever. Yeah sure I’d love to jump in on the middle of a story, in episode four without knowing anything about this story or the episodes before it, cool! Podcasts and apps have only gotten worse and not surprisingly not greedy. There’s a million podcasts for free, why would I pay for this. Used to recommend this to everyone, not anymore…

1. Some missing perspective - Overall, very informative and excellent storytelling. Hard to hear at times but important to hear. The lens of English as an Additional Language learners is missing which can be dangerous for some who assume “one-size fits all.” The story pushes discourse to one side of a pendulum. Students still need meaning with phonics. For all learners, that meaning comes from oral language and vocabulary knowledge or else students are just decoding. This is particular important to early emergent multilingual learners. What’s missing from the podcast is how reading is not just sounding out words, but that is the primary emphasis of this series. The parts of the story told are outstanding, but there is still a HUGE gap in how decoding affects sense making and understanding what you are reading is just as important as decoding.

2. Polarization Kills - A stunning expose of how political tribalism and utopian thinking ruins lives. Let this be a warning to anyone who claims to have a corner on “the science” without the humility to look beyond their narrow ideology. Thank you so much for making this so clear and bringing this urgent issue to light.

3. Must listen for educators AND parents - This series is really well done. A pleasure to listen to because of great content, audio quality and the journalist’s excellent narration. I implore educators and parents to listen. We need to know what is being taught in schools and is it in fact the best method.
I listened to this series horrified each time I heard familiar words, acronyms and strategies that my daughters have come home with over the years or have appeared on progress reports regarding their difficulties with reading. We ARE the suburban family having moved to an area for “excellent” schools only to have to hire a reading tutor to give our youngest that extra phonics help. She has flourished in reading since hiring our tutor. How many other kids would be flourishing if they had that instruction on a daily basis IN school?

4. A Much Needed Discussion! - As a special education teacher who has been using the Science of Reading theories since the beginning of my career, THANK YOU for exposing the myth of cuing system based curricula! I am so thankful that you made a parent friendly podcast that I can share with my friends who have children in districts that still use these antiquated systems of “teaching” reading.
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 18:09:21 GMT
5. Not the Whole Story - I have a lot of thoughts about this. First of all, highly trained literacy teachers would never suggest children guess or only use pictures. Never. They would also use the cue integration approach with fidelity and as one small piece of a balanced literacy program. The issue is NOT the method when done correctly. The real issue is that we consistently refuse to properly train teachers and use shortcuts instead, we expect elementary teachers to be experts in every subject area, and we keep piling on. Piling on while funding for Public Education is constantly being cut! THAT is the real story. Please listen to this more than once and then talk to a literacy expert. If not, you might be being sold another story. . I’ve never met a balanced literacy person say cover up the word and guess what makes sense! We are meaning makers using clues from the text (yes, the word parts/sounds and the pictures). . I am direct instruction, reading recovery trained and balance lit framework trained. It would be best practice to include the big (yes phonics too) in literacy instruction! An approach requires all!!!! And cannot be devoid of joy (where balanced literacy comes in). I have to say this podcast seemed a little jaded.

6. Not just a problem with reading instruction - I’ve taught multiple grade levels, rd grade, middle school and high school English, composition and critical reading and writing at the college level. The sad truth is the tendency of schools and teachers to eagerly embrace all sorts of (at best useless and at worst downright harmful) approaches to learning is a reality. Our desire to teacher-proof instruction, to find neat prepackaged approaches is ruining education. A related issue is the low quality of teacher preparation/education. Anyone who has been through it knows it is a joke. Let’s educate teachers and give them some professional autonomy to make decisions based on real information. Sigh…this is so frustrating! Our leaders are arguing about CRT in the schools—a silly sideshow—while our children are not being taught.

7. This just isn’t true - I’m a first grade teacher and this podcast grossly mischaracterizes how we teach reading. Many of my students have been in Reading Recovery, and we would never ever tell students to guess at words without using the letters and sounds in the words. This reporter is selling her own story and creating an alarmist narrative that has nothing to do with what we really do in classrooms.

8. Absolute Must Listen - I am a teacher with a master’s degree in literacy, but when my now year old son was diagnosed with dyslexia, all of that time and money to get those degrees failed me! I cried when I listened to episode . My story is identical to Missy’s story. After pouring over the research, hiring a tutor who spent years teaching him how to decode every spelling pattern in the English language, fighting my son’s school (in the same school district I grew up in and now teach in) we sent him to a private school that specializes in dyslexia where he’s made more growth in year than in his entire school career!
My friends who have struggling readers are paying $ for private tutors, this is so wrong! We need a systematic change in the education world.
Thank you for the work, research, time, and energy you put into this podcast, you presented the information in such an eloquent way that both teachers and parents who aren’t trained educators could understand! I could not put it down and I’ve shared it with everyone I know!

9. Sad and True - A fantastic podcast of what is a shockingly low profile story with stakes that are sky high. I had to fact-check much of what I heard since I simply couldn’t believe we are so loose with our education pedagogy (shocker, we are). I’m so glad this podcast defended classroom teachers but do wish it took an even harder stance against academics and administrators who are in positions of power and trust. How did we fail so many kids for so long?! This is a must-listen for anyone who cares about our education system.

10. Amazing Podcast - If you work in education and you have anything to do with teaching reading, you absolutely need to listen to this. The story is disturbing and frustrating on many levels. It is yet another proof for me that we are highly biased creatures and that many times we act in predictably irrational ways, even when the truth is staring us straight in the face.

I am a teacher of years that has taught and been trained the reading and writing workshop approach, studied Marie Clay, and own the Fountas and Pinnell books.

This affects everyone. Just listen.

14. Listen to this - If you know a struggling reader, are a struggling reader, teach reading at all- this explains everything. The amount of research and information about reading in this podcast is impressive. I never knew where the reading theories came from that focus on everything but decoding- but now I do. I thought I was crazy when it seemed wrong to teach that way. It just doesn’t make sense to not teach how to decode words. This makes sense.

15. Educational reporting that feels like true crime - I am not kidding when I say I pinged listened to this series in a day and a half. There are all kinds of shades of villainy, good intentions, and concern for children, but a shocking and dismal result: too many kids who don’t know how to read and can’t get the help they need from their teachers. I am telling everyone I know about this series.

My stomach was turned when I found out how the school system was teaching kids to learn how to ready by memorizing or looking at photos. I’m so thankful for how much it’s evolved but theirs still so much more to be done. I’m extremely thankful I’m able to teach my . how to read at home and not only relaying in his school. I will definitely be asking are private school at the next education Coffee, how they’re teaching our kids to read and if they’re seeing success! So thankful for everyone who made these episodes

17. Mind blowing and empowering - Wow, so well done, heartbreaking and mind blowing. I am living this right now and it has truly helped me as I try to understand why my th grader cannot decode words yet is reading “on level”, which. Is clearly inaccurate and flawed. Her school used Lucy Caulkins and the queuing and guessing strategies completely failed her. I am so grateful to you for this podcast. I have also read your article. Thank you! You have informed me and empowered me to drive change.

18. Amazing Truth - Thank you for this heart and mind changing podcast! I graduated from a private college in MN were Whole Language was the method of teaching reading back in the ’s. I never understand how children would learn to read by just looking at books, being read to, or listening to stories. But, I was young and just believed I was getting a solid education myself on teaching reading. Totally wrong:( I currently work for the largest school district in MN, Anoka Hennepin. I am a literary interventionist and work with K- students. We have used many, if not all, of the curriculums you reported on. We currently are using McGraw Hill Wonders reading Curriculum. Our reading scores have been plummeting over the last years. Our district has heard the cry of the teachers that this curriculum is lacking many key components that will ensure our students success in reading. I’m am happy and proud to say all K-, Sped, and intervention teachers are now being trained in LETRS!! This knowledge is absolutely mind blowing and also a bit humbling…. Why did we not learn this in college? Our school now has wonderful decodable books from Heggerty and a few other publishers that are students are loving. I see the joy and accomplishment when we tackle the new skills. Our students now know what a vowel is and a consonant. They know digraphs, blends, vowel teams, r-controlled, and all the syllable types. They love to do the Heggerty phonemic awareness lessons. We are definitely moving in the right direction. Thank you again for this amazing Podcast and for shining a light on a problem that needed illumination. Candace Johnson

19. A Must Read - Every teacher and parent needs to listen to this entire podcast about how children learn how to read. Every school administrator, reading coach, School board member, anyone responsible for the curriculum that is used to teach reading. THINGS MUST CHANGE!!! We have FAILED way too many students. Science of reading needs to be taken seriously in every single school in our country. Thank you for making this podcast!!!!

20. Fascinating - So informative! Reading is tremendously important for learning. Statistically in children has dyslexia. I live in California and in California schools they don’t test for dyslexia! During the pandemic I realized my second grader struggled with writing and reading. I got her a psychoeducational evaluation and chose to get her tested privately because of the many restrictions schools have with testing. She was diagnosed with dyslexia & I was shocked! I’m paying for outside reading help, but it’s sad that schools don’t have the ability to test and treat this reading issue. Thank you! Thank you!!

21. Thank you - Thank you for this podcast. I feel seen and understood for the first time. I’m a mom of a boy who is dyslexic and dysgraphic and has struggled to read. My son is now a rd grader and we’ve been fortunate that we’ve had the means to intervene for him since Kindergarten. Much like the families from RI & NYC, his issues became clear when we began at home learning during Covid and we have been able to get him the proper support. Sadly, our public school system in Chicago (that uses Lucy and F&P) refuses to acknowledge that the curriculum is not meeting his needs, nor do they want to recognize his learning disability. I hate that our options were to either let him fail or to resort to taking him to private OT, speech, tutors to get him the support he needed. I am fearful for all the children and families who aren’t getting the fight support or being given information about different curriculum or instruction. How do we get people help and supper? Where are the Teachers Unions on this? Why is the Dept of Ed? Let’s make change happen!

22. Should be required reading for all parents - This was an enlightening series about why many children are unable to read and the frightening pseudo “science” which transformed the American educational system from function to “feel good.” This series documents the marketing scam perpetrated on the most vulnerable victims -the nation’s children- and brings to painful light the questions all parents should be asking their children’s educators and school boards. Bravo for brilliant reporting!!!
Wed, 30 Nov 2022 03:00:32 GMT
23. Wow! So simplistic! - There are so many other education topics that need examination in the U.S. such as funding, test prep as the default curriculum for poor children and equity between low income and high income public schools. Where’s the multi-episode series on those? Phonics instruction - which I agree with as a part of a balanced literacy program - is mandated by the Common Core Standards. I highly doubt that the majority of teachers are not using phonics to teach kids to read. But, screaming "American children are not being taught to read!"makes a provocative headline
Tue, 29 Nov 2022 23:11:44 GMT
24. Mind Blown! - I am not a podcast person by any means but I couldn’t stop listening! The information I gained from this was incredible. I sent it to all my parent friends and even went to search for the article Emily wrote to send also. One of my friends was actually struggling with her son learning to read in st grade because of this very issue. This has been invaluable and I’m so grateful it exists!
Tue, 29 Nov 2022 19:25:05 GMT
25. Excellent, shocking - I had heard about the controversy over the reading curriculum (existing and incoming) in our district. I have been observing challenges in reading, things that didn’t seem right or on the right track, in my own child. I keep on hearing that my child is at reading level. This piece finally explored in detail the system, the evolution, the entrenchment, which matches our own personal experience. It’s shocking. We need to change to what will work (and also, which was not as much explored in this podcast— in a maybe future update :), what needs to happen— train educators, set them up for success for this change, support a new system that combines both the Science of Reading and the Love of Reading).
Tue, 29 Nov 2022 00:31:39 GMT
26. Thank you! - Thank you for bringing this to everyone’s attention. As a teacher in Colorado for the first time, I didn’t quite understand why they were not using the guided reading method. I taught for eight years in another state before this, and believe it was blended. Thank you for opening my eyes.
Mon, 28 Nov 2022 23:24:17 GMT
27. Essentially Stunning - As a mom of school-age children - this podcast brought into sensical clarity the who, what, how & why of reading education in this country - or better yet, lack thereof. And the reason my children are in private school. of my children are dyslexic, of them are intellectually gifted. Reading in public school was such a nightmare - for all of them. But trying to discuss my concerns over efficacy of reading instruction w/public school boards, teachers, principals - was even worse. The whole experience was like living inside a shaken snow globe. This podcast series just settled the snow. Excellent reporting!!! THANK YOU

Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.
Release date: 2022-12-05 Genre:True Crime Get
1. Old episodes and paying for subscription - As one of the previous reviewers stated, there are several repeats that show a date of being new that have been on in prior times. I am definitely glad I do not pay for a subscription for the ad free especially under these circumstances. However I don’t think any episodes should be held back for the listener simply because they haven’t paid for the ad free subscription. If we are willing to get through the commercials, then why withhold the episodes as a ploy?
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 02:37:01 GMT
2. Repeat uploads - The repeat uploads are extremely annoying. If we wanted to listen to the same content again, we could go back to the original upload. It’s not live tv where you can just get away with playing reruns. It’s impossible to tell what is genuinely new content and what is just reuploaded old episodes.
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 13:50:04 GMT
3. Translates very well to podcast format - One regret - seeing Keith Morrison at a gate in Orange County airport ten years ago and leaving him in peace. My policy is to leave celebrities alone if I happen to see one, but I’m such a fan of Dateline and of the golden voice and investigative style of Keith Morrison I think I should have broken my own rule. Keith, if you’re reading this, you can feel safe, at least from being bothered by me, because I don’t fly into John Wayne Airport anymore. But if I could go back in time I’d stop by and tell Keith to never retire. Keep this show coming! It’s the best true crime show of them all, and Keith Morrison is the best part of it.
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 02:37:40 GMT
4. Love Dateline but…. - I got addicted to Dateline about four years ago and occasionally listen to the podcasts. They are great overall, but I agree with some who complain that sometimes they won’t play. I subscribed to the commercial free option and having that glitch is annoying. I like all of the hosts except Canning - I must agree with some other reviewers on her. She is not objective and is generally unprofessional, inserting her perspective into many interviews. Lately I have also noticed incorrect information on prescription medications in some podcasts. Hydrocodone is, in fact, just as addictive as oxycodone. Hosts would do well to stop feeding the false narrative about pain meds that leads chronic pain patients to commit suicide every year. You are journalists- please do better.
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 00:29:23 GMT
5. So many glitches - Used to be such a great podcast but lately it is full of issues like “unable to play” on certain episodes and then audio missing from sections of an episode. The last straw was when the audio cut out on the part where they revealed the verdict! Taking this podcast off my favorites and unsubscribing from Dateline Premium. Too frustrating.
Tue, 29 Nov 2022 12:23:03 GMT
6. Love the show, but can’t play all the episodes - I’m a subscriber, because I love Dateline. However, the past couple of months, I have episodes in my feed that will download, but won’t play. I get an error message saying “Something went wrong - try again later.” This is the only show I have this issue with.
Tue, 29 Nov 2022 03:19:21 GMT
7. Down, Down with Upspeak - Unfortunately, Andrea Canning engages in the extremely annoying and unmelodious practice of upspeak. Any public speaking teacher would promptly give her a failing grade. This speech pattern is as unflattering as vocal fry. Please stop the pattern of veering into a higher octave (or two, ugh ) at the end of every sentence. People don’t hear the content at all — just the nagging, forced cadence change. Sounds contrived and excessively emphatic. Dreadful !
Sun, 27 Nov 2022 14:06:42 GMT
8. The best - Dateline is the best true crime series out there. If you don’t love dateline then you can’t possibly be a real true crime enthusiast. I’ve learned so much from this show/podcast, way more than I could ever learn from listening to hours of wild speculation and irrelevant opinions, which is basically all you get on these other podcasts. Casefile and crime junkie are the exception to this but other than that it’s just opinions and pointless speculation. Which might but fun but it isn’t helpful if you want to know the facts and learn a thing or two about the criminal justice system. Thank you dateline!!!!!
Fri, 25 Nov 2022 14:57:20 GMT
9. Not your best - I thoroughly enjoy Dateline and listening to it as a podcast, it is my favorite and my go to. It tells a story in a way that keeps you interested, is compelling, even exciting but this one just fell so flat. It was so many options and opportunities that were missed. It came out very flat and not very exciting. I’m sure the next one will be better, as almost all of them are
Thu, 24 Nov 2022 12:56:01 GMT
10. So many tropes - It’s like you know the story before it’s told. Trotting out the same old ‘smile lit up a room’ stuff. And the bore of the Haunted one was a trial to listen to I would’ve given up on if I wasn’t half asleep through most of it. Pro-death penalty, good ol white boy trash. And not sure why the female narrator takes a break after every three words. So false sounding.

This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro and Sabrina Tavernise. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
Release date: 2022-12-05 Genre:News > Daily News Get
1. It’s fine - The public deserves better but many episodes are worth a listen. They go overboard with the background noise and reporter drama. (Is any listener actually buying this faux realism? As if we’re really getting to know the people behind the story and seeing how real journalism is done? Nonsense.) That said, my two year old really seems to like the music.
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 14:44:12 GMT
2. Excellent episode of a great show. - The daily is usually really good, but this episode with reporter Vivian Wang is exceptionally informative. Vivian really put us there in the middle of the Chinese protest and also gave a lot of deep background on why the zero Covid policy is so destructive to social harmony. And Sabrina was a great interviewer who let Vivian speak most of the time. Excellent job!
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 20:32:49 GMT
3. The Children in the Shadows episode deserves a Pulitzer - I love this podcast. The investigative journalism, high quality writing, gripping subject matter set each episode miles above the rest. I just finished listening to one I’ve the best pieces of investigative journalism I’ve ever heard or read. Please give this episode a listen. Thank you to the entire staff for this wonderful podcast. This podcast just keeps getting better and better. It provides information that’s allows me to get insight into today’s current events. UPADTE: After listening to so many episodes I can say the this is the best podcast overall.
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 14:32:43 GMT
4. Its good… but very Radiolab - Why does Sabrina pretend to be finding out the information in her own podcast for the first time as if she’s never encountered it before? Its extremely cringe. And Michael needs to stop making moaning noises every time his guest says some basic piece of public information. Guest: So the sky is basically blue most of the time, except during sunset when its pink, and night when its dark. Sabrina: Wow that’s amazing Ive never heard anyone express that opinion before! What about the sky makes you perceive it as blue during the day? Michael: Uuuuuh, mmm, ughghghghehgggghhhh. Pink…Wow thats quite something.
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 07:40:31 GMT
5. Listen to The Daily daily! - Usually Love the show but today’s (thanksgiving show) is a let down. I won’t even listen to it Bc it celebrates death and cruelty. There are people who don’t celebrate the colonizer holiday and people who don’t eat animals but listen to your podcast. As thoughtful as the podcasts usually are this episode was a complete letdown.
Thu, 24 Nov 2022 19:00:40 GMT
6. Stop repeating what your guests just said - I enjoy the Daily. It tends to be informative and entertaining. However, I cannot get past host Michael Barbaro’s tendency to ask his guest a question, listen to their answer, grunt/sigh audibly, and then repeat to the audience exactly what his guest just communicated. It is such a constant irritation that I’m giving this stars.
Tue, 22 Nov 2022 22:24:12 GMT
7. Consistently a great way to wake up informed - Michael’s interviews identify important issues of the day and go straight to the main issues I want to understand. Today’s clarification of the triple threat posed by this year’s respiratory viruses is a case in point. What an economical and thoroughly engaging use of my time!
Tue, 22 Nov 2022 14:39:21 GMT
8. Anything but Trump stories, please - I love to listen to The Daily and the in-depth reporting that is shared on the show. But I have become so very weary of the former President and his antics. Please consider minimizing your coverage of him - there are so many other interesting, thought-provoking, and important stories to cover.
Mon, 21 Nov 2022 22:16:42 GMT
9. Don’t be fooled - When the conversation ends and Michael Babaro says “we’ll be right back”, they don’t really come back. It’s just an ad for some other podcast, then Michael says the words “to know today” as fast as he possibly can and reads - current events headline blurbs. They get me every time, and it feels like a really disingenuous move to say you’ll be right back but then just wrap when you return. I always feel baited and switched. Great pod tho /.
Mon, 21 Nov 2022 19:19:35 GMT
10. The Daily is superlative - Just listened to show on Uruguay and renewable energy. Well organized and presented. No easy answers but shows that one can begin a process that the US can’t seem to do. Identified the challenge to all human improvement - behavior change. There were two outstanding shows interviewing a group of conservatives and another of progressives. I did not agree with a lot but the responses were well thought.
Sun, 20 Nov 2022 13:15:34 GMT
11. What a joke and terrible journalism - Listened to the the man who was supposed to save crypto to learn more, journalist got the facts wrong and even I know that. What a joke. Released on Nov , days after it’s been established that people were sending money to alameda for their FTX deposits. Speculating the “first company” “reputation hit” “ex girlfriend” were the potential reasons… it’s probably best y’all learn to code.
Sun, 20 Nov 2022 06:10:59 GMT
12. Bigoted & Biased - The NYT has a serious far-right problem. This podcast showcases this problem on steroids. I’m lucky if one episode a month is worth listening to… honestly I only keep this to compare it to Post Reports (WaPo ), which is also problematic at times, but surprisingly more balanced than the NYT has become. Stop reporting disinformation that puts ethnic minorities in DANGER! STOP!
Sat, 19 Nov 2022 16:00:41 GMT
13. Was My Fav - I can really trust this podcast to tell both sides of each story and as a political Centrist, black woman. I can’t say how hard that is to find. Additionally, I love how the podcast isn’t as repetitive as other daily news podcasts saying the same thing every single day. Also, MB really breaks down each topic so that you understand what happened and why it’s important. His cadence is also a cool plus. update : No longer my favorite. Lately I can hardly handle the partisan perspective. Why is it so hard for media to tell the truth? I considered subscribing to get real news, but omitting facts for a particle narrative and framing things in an effort to convince people how to think of something isn’t news, it’s manipulation.
Wed, 16 Nov 2022 20:24:35 GMT
14. The Run Up - Astead Herndon is doing the lord’s work on ‘The Run Up’! Calling republican voters to better understand both their historical and current perspectives on politics, asking clarifying follow up questions and allowing them to speak candidly…Astead is delivering the news I didn’t know I needed. Thank you for this new iteration of The Daily, a podcast I love. Sincerely, A leftist voter.
Tue, 15 Nov 2022 17:01:40 GMT
15. Biased and sensational - We criticize the “hmmm”s and background music in the reviews so y’all make start making statements on the podcast of why these are important… UPDATE: I take back my first statement in my review after you did a serious piece on Birds Aren’t Real… The podcast topics are interesting, relevant, and provide a lot of detail to the topic. However, the presentation of the topic is sensationalized through the host’s tone, especially in those “hmmm”. I don’t see the need for the podcasts background music either to highlight for us what’s good/bad. I’m on the left but would appreciate a podcast that doesn’t tell me how I should align on the topics, especially in the slightly subconscious ways you do.
Tue, 15 Nov 2022 15:25:19 GMT
16. National Report Card analysis weak - This podcast was greatly underwhelming and disappointing. If the goal was to show a causal link between remote leaning and underperformance of our public school system, I didn’t see it. Basically we went from % to % th graders proficient in math pre-pandemic; %, means we were already greatly underperforming. The other statistics cited also don’t bear reporter’s assertions. (E.g., limited disparity between CA & FLA scores despite totally different approaches to pandemic learning). Overall the lack of in depth analysis by the reporter left me bewildered. Felt like she instead wanted to use adjectives and adverbs to further a her conclusion rather than logically link her premise with her conclusion. But she yes, the reading scores didn’t decline as much as the math scores. Very disappointing show.
Mon, 14 Nov 2022 14:13:13 GMT
17. I love this show - I LOVE the daily. I love that they get multiple view points. I absolutely love how Michael plays devils advocate, I love Michael’s cadence, I love how he says “Here’s what else you need to know today.” Not sure why people complain about that. It’s his trademark! Also, the “hmmm”’s don’t both me either. It’s shows that he is paying attention and he’s engaged. I do wish it was still only him hosting though. I like the occasional visit from Sabrina, but I don’t care for her as a full time host. I don’t like her cadence or the way she asks questions. I can’t stand the way she says “aaaaaaand”. I will still listen, but I do tend to skip her episodes unless I really care about the topic.

It’s a lighthearted nightmare in here, weirdos! Morbid is a true crime, creepy history and all things spooky podcast hosted by an autopsy technician and a hairstylist. Join us for a heavy dose of research with a dash of comedy thrown in for flavor.
Release date: 2022-12-16 Genre:Comedy Get
1. Rapidly Declining In Quality - I like the hosts and i respect them being able to monetize their podcast even though the ads are excessive. It’s free content so I can deal with ads. I have stopped listening as often as before because now they are pushing out quantity over quality. The listener tales used to be a treat when they were sporadic but now they use them as filler to meet their quota of episodes. The listener tales are no longer a treat but are more like a punishment. The previous format was way better despite their long drawn out uninteresting banter which is what the listener tales have become.
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 20:41:43 GMT
2. Episodes are great! - I like the show and have been listening for a long time but hate that it’s so many collabs, listener tales, and spooky stories now. I feel like they’ve gotten away from what they initially started with that they were good at. They said they were going to start doing less collabs but it’s still been so many. I miss just hearing the murder stories. Please get back to what you were doing before!
Sun, 04 Dec 2022 16:41:30 GMT
3. Used to be a favorite, not anymore - This was one of my favorite podcasts until Wondery came along. I rarely listen anymore. There are so many filler episodes in there that the real true crime stories are lost. The old timey episode so boring. I only listen to the if I’m completely out of other pods and even then usually stop after a few minutes. It would be different if they were sprinkled in but virtually all the content has changed. Unfollowing the podcast and cancelling the Wondery. Morbid was the only reason I paid for it in the first place.
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 15:23:38 GMT
4. Magic? Really? - Tarot, astrology, etc are not a real thing. It’s the same as any other con game. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MAGIC Now they are just lazy and greedy. Too much woo for me now and you used to be one of my favorite podcasts. Ghosts? Lol!!!!!! Been around at least twice as long as the girls, never, ever had an inkling. Caves, graveyards, abandoned homes, and I LIVE IN THE FOREST. Nada. Flying squirrels yes, spirits no.
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 09:45:12 GMT
5. Turned from GREAT to annoying sell outs. - I used to be a DIE HARD fan and recommended the pod to everyone and anyone who would listen. But ever since they went to Wondery it’s been a downward spiral. I kept listening for awhile hoping theyd go back how things used to be, but they just ignore the feedback. Truly, they are just an echo chamber of unfunny jokes. One of them will say something stupid, then they just say it back and forth at each other for mins straight while laughing uncontrollably? I dunno, it’s real weird and off putting. This happens constantly throughout each episode. And.. They now release “ episodes a week!”?? But honestly, episodes are always late and % of the time they are just guests talking about their shows or listener tales episodes. They are just really phoning it in at this point. Really sad to see them go but I will physically start to rip my hair out if I force myself to continue to listen. Old episodes are worth a listen, but basically anything - forward, save yourself the brain cells and frustration.
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 07:38:20 GMT
6. Yes! Love this! - I love both your listener tales and true crime stories! Never change what you do and who you are! This is great! I’m so excited to find this podcast! Your banter is so cheerful and just the right amount where I don’t need to think, get on with it. You are wonderful companions to listen to any time of the day or night!
Sat, 03 Dec 2022 03:07:55 GMT
7. The best duo evaaa! - I personally love when you guys talk about you views on everything (even if it is for literally a second) it just shows us who you guys are as people and the majority of us can relate! I love that you guys stay true to yourselves! This is by far my favorite podcast and the unhappy people that have left negative reviews or harsh comments don’t deserve to be here! You guys are amazing
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 17:35:01 GMT
8. Still a Good Show - A lot of the reviews mention how people are dissatisfied with listener tales or the other content that isn’t strictly true-crime. I agree that it isn’t what we downloaded/purchased the podcast for, but at the same time, the episodes are clearly labeled! Just skip the ones you don’t want to listen to! That’s what I do. The editing has gotten pretty awful though. Several episodes will randomly cut out and restart in mid-sentence elsewhere in the story, or sometimes the theme song will play out of nowhere (perhaps where an ad once was, but has since been removed?). Anyway… for the most part, it’s still a great show and everyone I know who is familiar with it agrees it’s still worth our continued loyalty.
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 15:36:42 GMT
9. My nd review - Man, y'all are keeping it too 'weird' now. I have been listening since the 'underwater recording days', and was ecstatic for you to join Wondery... but did Wondery make the Listener Tales & Guest episodes a requirement?? Those were interesting when they would be dropped every once in a while, but at this point its over done. They lost the rarity spark they once had... The fillers are just for quantity, and thats not helping. If you need to go back to - episodes a week for space to breath and reevaluate, or even a longer break - I know your fans/listeners/weirdos would support you! That was when you put out your high quality content, even with no set schedule.. It left us fiending for the next episode release. The research and time you gave yourselves really shined, and made your Pod special. Now its evident that quantity over quality prevails . I know you recently made an announcement that you're listening to the comments/reviews, so hopefully things take a turn for the better with the new year. I am rooting for you guys!!
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 13:55:50 GMT
10. Heart is broken - Morbid was my favorite podcast. I got family members to be obsessed with it. But when they joined the dark side (wondery) they only do cross promotion crap. I am super happy they got paid, they definitely earned it. But the original show is gone forever. I couldn’t give them a star because of their pre wondery episode deserved stars.
Fri, 02 Dec 2022 12:58:53 GMT
11. Lacking the same quality - Morbid used to be my favorite podcast. I never really enjoyed the listener tales but tolerated them once in a while. Since Morbid joined Wondery there has been a serious dip in program quality. Too many easy episodes with guests, listener tales, silly themed episodes, and long ad breaks.
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 11:30:17 GMT
12. Meh. - It’s giving me My favorite Murder level of enthusiasm. I get wanting to make that coin, however when it dims, dulls, and quite frankly dums down your stories, the level of interest in your voices, and overall package deal of what you’re attempting to sell us The listeners; than it no longer has the same value. The content as of late hasn’t been as magical as it has in the past. Why that is I know not.
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 06:53:41 GMT
13. Please go back to the old Morbid - I used to be a die hard fan of this podcast. I listened religiously every week, but lately the content has gone so downhill I stopped listening completely. Stop with the old timey episodes, collabs and listener tales!! It’s not what your fans want. I would much rather you release one episode per week again if it meant you cut out the fillers. Also, lately I’ve gotten really turned off by the political commentary and unrelated tangents. It’s a true crime podcast not a talk show
Thu, 01 Dec 2022 05:16:49 GMT
14. The negative reviews are NOT IT - I am shocked at the reviews cause you ladies are incredible. For the people wanting all facts and no banter, go listen to Crime Junkie. If you want to feel like you’re hanging out with your besties, this is the podcast for you. I’m a stay at home mom and some days feel so lonely, so the banter helps me get through those days. I also binged all the listener tales first then went back and listened to the other episodes. My sister is a day listener but it took me forever to finally give y’all a chance and wow it was a mistake to wait so long. Please keep up the listener tales and keep being your weird selves

15. Lost its integrity - R.I.P to what was once a good podcast. First off, the cussing & banter is unnecessary. I’ve also read that there has been a tremendous amount of misinformation being told throughout some of these episodes. The collaborations & “spooky” content is excessive and just annoying! Also, ENOUGH with sprinkling in your political opinions. It was never asked for. Make a separate podcast if you feel so deeply about your liberal views.

16. Lost Some Stars because… - Update: Here are some facts - despite some people enjoying this list of things the majority does not. Listener Tales Spooky Tales Episodes with guests Old-timey true crime Have you considered doing another podcast for that stuff? Because the majority of your listeners DO NOT enjoy those. If you change that I’ll be back on board to pay to listen. Used to love this podcast and want to again! I enjoy the banter and don’t even mind paying for it. SO SO many of us are tired of the listener tales, spooky stuff and TV shows!!! Why aren’t you guys listening to us? Make a new podcast for that stuff and bring back the old Morbid. I’m soooo bummed and have stopped listening. I’ve joined and cancelled Wondery a couple times hoping you guys would do true crime again. Sad.

17. Wonderful podcast! - These ladies bring it! I usually stick to stars only but after listening to the murder of Sherri Rasmussen episode I had to let you all know how amazing you did. I had heard several other podcasts cover the case and even a forensic files episode I believe. I thought I knew all details already but listened anyway and boy am I glad I did! Such attention to detail and Ash, your energy is Everything!!! Such an absolute grand job of telling such a sad story. I’ve been listening for almost years now and I’m so glad I found you! Much Love!

18. Love the ladies but the editing is messed up - I’m not going to give the ladies a bad review because of this because the show is still great, but I wanted to address and issue. Ever since they moved over to Wondery the editing is horrible. In almost every episode parts are skipped or out of order, get cut off then restart in the wrong place, or sections are repeated. It’s annoying and seemed to get worse when they switched to Wondery. You’d think being on such a big platform would make the editing better. Can someone please fix this?
Like I said I still love this podcast and will continue listening either way.

19. Starting to go downhill a bit - When I started listening to Morbid, I was a huge fan and listened constantly. I listened bc they brought comedy to another wise sad story. The true crime episodes are what really got me. Now it’s mostly focused on hauntings (spooky/paranormal things) and the true crime episodes are just old timey murders. They don’t do a lot of episodes on more current events. They’ve been adding a lot of guest speakers and listener tales. Not the content I originally got hooked on.

20. over all - this podcast literally it’s the only reason I’m living lol. but they do really great storytelling, and they do great representation on all the cases however, it does get a little bit irritating when a lot of it is listen tales and combined podcast. I do like listening to them, but there are just so a lot of them. I would totally love to see way more true crime, or spooky places besides from that this is like the best podcast ever.

21. Honest but loyal listener - Ok here’s the thing. Love the show and I relate to a lot of what they go thru but when they can’t get thru one listener take without going off topic every sentence I find my self turning it off and throwing my phone. Sometimes I just wanna hear the story without interruption and that rarely happens.

22. Keep up the great work! - I love this podcast. I don't pay to listen early or without ads, but I love great content - and Morbid delivers again and again. I started with the most recent recordings during the pandemic then went back to the submarine start. Never stop the banter, we love you two for being you! People who complain can (leave a poorly written review and) go listen to something else. I keep the skip forward button handy for the numerous loud ads, but I enjoy all episodes: true crime, spooky stories, and listener tales. Please do not change your content based on complaints, people complain far more than compliment, and they, like me, can always skip whatever they don't like. I hope you, keep on recording, and I hope you, keep... it... weeeeird. But not so weird that you let these reviews affect what you do, who you are, or how you live your life, k?

23. Use to be great - I loved this show BEFORE Wondery got ahold of it. While they added an episode a week, it seems like we get an almost weekly campfire tales style episode a week that is a colaberation with some other show. Usually it’s a min nothing tale each and lots of how much much they love their show. Fridays are always listener tales- that I use to look forward to but are now no longer special. I am giving it to the end of the year then leaving if it’s not better- And they said they were stopping all the guest , yeah for a month. I guess it’s back to true crime garage for brotherly talk and actual crime.

24. I’m so sad - I love Ash and Alaina, I’m proud of them!!! I’ve been listening since they were still doing hair and autopsy-ing folks. But since joining Wondery… this is a different podcast. Constant adds make it hard to continue an episode. Every other episode having a “guest” or being a listener tale make it hard to even want to listen. I’m just so sad that this is no longer my favorite podcast.. I hope they hear their listeners soon & bring it back to what it used to be

25. Haters gonna hate - I love your show ladies!! I don’t know why so many people say it’s not good anymore. Y’all are always hilarious and I love the variety that you offer. The mix of listener tales, true crime, and supernatural is the best. So many podcasts only focus on one subject/genre and it gets boring. Keep on killin it and keep it weeeeiiirrrd!!
