Ugh what rubbish

I tried this podcast a couple of times and eventually got over one of the presenter's annoying valley-girl voice. The original episodes and premise were fun, let's each talk about a murder for a few episodes, then will throw in requests for listener's hometown murders. Once the podcast started gaining popularity is when it went down hill. All the poorly, pre-recorded live shows. The laziness with presenting "I shouldn't be alive" stories from the tv show. And the constant blabber about absolutely nothing.

After listening to about 100 episodes, I decided that enough was enough and stopped.

There are much better true crime/murder podcasts out there. Just do yourself a favor, save your ear drums, and find any other one.

P.S. their super-fans are what gave another true crime podcast a whole lot of trouble because they took offense to how they presented their cases.

disrespectful and annoying

I'm a huge fan of true crime podcasts, but I hate this one. It's one thing to learn about cases because you find them interesting. It's even better if you learn about them so you can petition, support or help bring justice. Then there is this podcast, where you glorify murderers, rant and ramble like you're wasted and do zero good for the families and friends left behind to deal with a tragedy. It's gross.

My least favorite podcast

Honestly, I’m confused why this podcast is popular at all. The title and the whole idea behind it is problematic - if you have “favorite” murders and serial killers, there is something wrong with you.
I’ve listened to a lot of true crime podcasts and most of them put the emphasis on the victims and who they were when they were alive. Glorifying killers is not okay.
The research on this podcast is pretty sloppy - get ready to hear a lot “I don’t know”, “I’m not sure”, etc...
I tried listening to two different episodes and in one of them ≈30 min was them discussing their own stuff and ≈40 min they actually tried talking about the case... Maybe they should try chatting and catching up before they hit the record button.
Overall do not recommend.

Everything wrong in this genre.

Everything wrong with this genre. Don't waste your time here. Total lack of humanity.

Far too much unnecessary profanity

I have no problem with profanity or sex-related words sprinkled in for emphasis, but it's just part of the natural dialog here. It's too bad, because the stories get covered by the over-the-top language.

Not a good podcast to support

Quality has completely fallen apart over the past years, and the content is not worth the time. Their episodes consist of either having other people do their "research" (which is literally retelling wikipedia entries), OR having their listeners do all the work and submit "hometown murders" (which has proven to be a big red flag since they were called out by a victim of one of the stories for telling what happened to her without her consent- but they still continue these segments). Discussing high profile situations or historical events is one thing- but the "hometowns" are irresponsible and callous to victims and their families. If you are going to have a podcast dedicated to something so sensitive and attempt to be an advocate for victims- then you need to sincerely be respectful of those victims. There have been countless situations over the years where the host's actions have not aligned with the messages they preach, and that's extremely harmful considering the nature of what they are discussing. There are better podcasts to follow.

The 1st 3 or 4 were pretty good…

…after that it was as if they realized they’d found an audience full of “woke” women, that talk about nothing but how much they hate men and all of their “toxic masculinity!” Lol. They are literally actors at this point. The surprises! The gasps! The fake excitement! Gross. The show literally became about nothing but them, catering to their cult following on Twitter, and all the advertising possible! Seriously i/2 the episode is commercials and the other half is them laughing at their own jokes. You can tell they can’t even stand sitting in the same room together making these anymore, as dark-haired Karen is much less talented than the untalented other Karen. But they can’t quit now because they’ve been living poor in LA for years before this ! Lol. This show is so painful. The only thing worse is the ppl that listen to it, they bow down to the hosts every order, and really think there’s this large audience out there who’ll recognize their stupid t-shirt they were talked into buying for like $40 while walking down the street to buy more black eyeliner. Ugh. These are the girls who never had any friends in school finding each other and talking crap about the rest of us over the premise of a murder case that they never even have their facts straight about. Horrendous. Trust me…I wouldn’t waste all of this time writing if it wasn’t totally warranted. And the whole fake “I’m cool”
manner in the way they talk now…dragging out their final syllables in every sentence just long enough to sound raspy and awesome. These are the very ppl who are ruining our entire country because of their cluelessness. Ok. I’m done.

Way Too Political

I enjoy most of this podcast, but it gets way too political sometimes. I listen to podcasts to get away from the constant politics everyone wants to throw into things. I don’t have one side I always stick with, I vote based on who I think would do the best job. I say that because I don’t get annoyed because of their political party. I get annoyed because the President, no matter what party is in office, has nothing to do with these stories. Unless we’re talking about the Kennedy family, in which case any current sitting President would have nothing to do with. I have to take long breaks from this one because the constant talk about who they hate gets old.
