Very well researched and presented. No annoying unnecessary banter which is refreshing. The transition music is a bit annoying though. I enjoy listening to this podcast especially the more low profile cases.
Esther’s hard work and love for what she does comes through every episode. Much appreciated
Love this show everything is interesting and I love every show! You rock!!
I listen to many true crime podcasts & am glad to have just discovered this one. Great podcast.
Oddly, I find this podcast calming and listen while working. One thing that makes Esther special is that she pays respect to her stories and the victims by not peppering the podcast with meaningless banter. It’s just great storytelling. She sifts through the details to find the story buried within. She hits on several different topics and I like that she includes many historic cases. As far as True Crime storytelling, Esther is a real pro.
Although I love the comedy of MFM, Esther is the real deal in terms of putting in her time to really understand each case and to give listeners content warnings when warranted. For someone who’s into true crime for the love of good detective work and is fascinated by forensic science techniques, but who doesn’t want the all the gory details, Esther does it just right! I wish I could have her level of dedication for my own podcast—she’s also an inspiration!
You called him Terrrance Hemphill Jr. I know it was a honest mistake, but to call him by his murderers last name and leave it in the episode is upsetting. Please make an edit if you are able to. Thank you.
Love the content and attention to detail. A lot of topics not on other true crime podcasts! It would be much more engaging though if not every word was read. It’s very monotone. I’ll finish an episode and then I will notice that I didn’t even listen because I lost interest. More guests please! Discussions are much better! Or try to paraphrase and tell the story not word for word read it!
Love how Ester tells the stories, and the history behind the true crime. She makes me laugh and her voice is soothing. Can’t wait for each new episode!
Enjoy format and stories but mostly love how real Ester is when doing this. More like a conversation story versus just reading a story. Reactions and personal comments come over as authentic versus scripted for impact. Came to this late and have been binge listening now to catch up letting others get behind this is just that good.
I’m hooked! I am a relatively new listener, having binge-listened to 3+ seasons in the past few months. Esther tells a gripping story each time, delving into not just the who and the what but also the why. She remains impartial while telling a complete and detailed story. I’m now caught up and hate that I have to wait a week in between episodes! Great job and I look forward to future episodes.
Can’t wait for new episodes love it and currently listening back to the earlier episodes. Great voice, snarks and tweets!!! 😀. TLBKnowles
I really enjoy this podcast and how you don’t announce the sponsor break but just roll into it. I also enjoy the different series and research. Thanks for what you do and keep up the great work, keeps me focused while working in my pod at work.
I’m late to discover everything but this was well worth the wait...episodes were so interesting and so well narrated I binged all of them over the weekend and then got mad at myself because I caught up and now have to wait a week for a new episode. The hosts are so enjoyable and the fact that their BFF’s makes them so in sync with each other. No corny jokes or gimmicks which annoy the hell out of me. Keep up the great work ladies!!
This is a solid podcast. Very consistent and interesting stories. I look forward to this podcast every week. There’s a few stories I heard on other podcast and Esther just flat out do it better. Her story telling ability and psychological perspective takes this show to another level.
Next to Crime Junkies and Court Junkies I’ve struggled to find one that I enjoy that doesn’t have a lot of unnecessary banter etc. I love this one because she is straight to the point and tells the story, which is what I want to hear. I love this podcast
I first heard Esther in an interview from another podcast I listened to. She is interesting, intelligent, empathetic and her podcast comes across like real true crime journalism. It’s one of my favorite podcast. Thanks Esther! Hope to see you at CrimeCon!
Would be 5 stars if it didn’t sound like narrator was reading a book report. But everything else is 5 stars, good podcast.
Great podcast! Narrator/creator is concise and easy to understand, adding detail to give personality to the people in her story. Thanks for a great listen, Esther!
Hello Esther, Do you write and read these awesome stories? I am amazed at how well you add details that are important I never want to miss one word. Thank you for your effort to bring these stories to life . Sincerely, Colette Moore 726 Carr Ave Rockville MD 20850
