Atlanta Monster gets our review! And Dirty John gets the prime time treatment!
< 1 day ago
It was one of 2017's biggest podcasts. Now the tale of "Dirty John" gets the treatment from Dateline NBC. Does a 42 minute TV episode add anything to a story already told over five hours in podcast form? Maybe just some pictures of how hunky John Meehan really was.
The main event: we breakdown the first installments in "Atlanta Monster," the new podcast from Payne Lindsey's Tenderfoot TV and HowStuffWorks. This look back at the 1980s Atlanta child murders is billed as "an investigative podcast," but where is it taking us? Does Lindsey repeat the best parts (or the worst parts) of his hit debut "Up and Vanished"?

Rated 5 out of
They mostly talk about current crime that has made headlines.
They will sometimes have guests on that are also very informative.
Although they are sometimes talking about serious creepy crimes they still manage to keep it upbeat and funny without making it seem crass.
Really difficult to do but these guys are genius at what they do.
Husband and wife team with a few of their friends mixed in that they've know for sometime.
They will also review current TV shows as well that are crime drama/based shows.
EX include Law and order, and the current HBO limit series The Night Of.
You can tell crime is their passion!
Keep it up guys!

Hands down the smartest, most interesting, most informative, most entertaining, most beautifully produced, and funniest podcast about other podcasts (and True Crime) out there. I started listening a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Now I never miss a show and look forward to it each week. The hosts are full-fledged professionals who know their stuff...and have a great sense of humor.
