    Hi Esther.

    You're podcast is one of a few true crime podcasts I listen to. I am grateful you write and research before airing, and really appreciate your distinctive, frank speaking tone —not over-embellished or heavy-handed.

    This conversation with Yolanda brings out another side to the podcast, and really highlights your hosting skills! I usually can't listen to conversation-style podcasts, but you two are a treat - like you really know how to direct the conversation while also leave plenty of room for your guest. More of this in the future?! Either way, thanks for your good work!

    Hi Esther! I love your podcast so much! I listen to many of them, and am particularly sensitive to (probably over-sensitive to) podcasters' tone and attitude. Yours is just perfect: clear, no abrupt decibel shifts, no hyper-moralizing (we take for granted that murder is the worst kind of wrong), and kind.

    Usually I'm not big on unscripted or conversational-type podcasts, but you and your sister's segment on Laci Peterson's murder is on another plane. It's direct and to the point but also natural and so naturally funny. Someone should hire you! :)

    You two should do yourselves and your listeners a favor and give your sources.

    Sorry, but I had to stop listening after 7 minutes. You obviously didn't read the Habeas and Appeal documents. There were no circular shapes of other anchors at the warehouse. Look at the photos. The container was the wrong size. The cement 'expert' for the prosecution was debunked by the defense expert who actually is the one who taught him the trade. Laci was seen walking the dog in the neighborhood. And with the new found testimony of the mailman, it is pretty air tight. Check the phone calls from Amber and Sibley's brother to Peterson and you will see why Scott had to call. He talked to her before the vigil. It is normal that he didn't want anyone to find out he had slept with a woman before his wife went missing. I am not saying he is innocent, but the guy needs a new trial. The 'alleged' hairs in the rusty pliers were debunked at trial. Distaso had to apologize in court after being reprimanded by the judge for saying it was Laci's. There was no concrete proof of that, and the pliers had not been recently used. She lived with the man so a hair would be no big deal anyway. I would like to listen to your podcast after you do a thorough reading of the official documents. The detectives in this case had blinders and lied and covered up so much.
