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.

E108: Tent Girl Pt. 2
Todd Matthews first heard the story of Tent Girl on Halloween night in 1987. The story of an unidentified woman’s remains found at an interchange fascinated him to such extremes that it became a mission to identify her. Risking his own personal relationships, Matthews, with the help of a new technology called the Internet, would find a missing persons report from decades earlier that could be a match. Could he identify her? And could he help solve the mystery of her death?

When the body of a young woman was found stuffed into a canvas bag along the interchange of I-75 and U.S. 25 in Georgetown, Kentucky, her badly decayed remains rendered police unable to uncover her identity, or the identity of her killer. It wasn’t until decades later, when the story of Tent Girl was told to a young boy on Halloween night, that this Jane Doe would meet the person who would stop at nothing to identify her, and bring her home.
