Voice message From someone in Australia


From a listener named Mackenna, Austin TX

I’m a serial true crime podcast listener (listened to hundreds of the these true crime podcasts ) I found myself smiling constantly while listening to Dakota Spotlight. I appreciate the warmth and care you put into being fair and sensitive while making this podcast.  It was truly filled with a feeling of authenticity that I didn’t realize I was missing in my podcasts.
