The stories are interesting but the hosts make no attempt to sound like they aren't just reading from a script

wanderlust and murder
 Nov 10, 2018
Pretty decent podcast, but they could really use some new VO actors. That one girl's voice has become so grating at this point. It's so distinctive and she's in every single episode as at least one character.
