A Senseless Murder: REVIEWED!!!!!!!!
Listen in as we, Elaina and Annie, argue, debate, and pick apart the podcast titled A Senseless Murder. This is the story of a road rage incident gone wrong; ending in a senseless death. One of us sees this podcast as more pointless than senseless; where the other is just fine with discussing boring ass state laws that would allow this crime to go unsolved. Always keep in mind while listening, that the Upper Balcony Podcast is an opinion based podcast, as everyone is entitled to their humble/shitty opinion. We are not professional broadcasters, excuse the dogs in the background or don't listen, and we are not all that great at fact checking. So listen in, leave a five star, subscribe, and ENJOY!
