  1. First of all, you guys are awesome!!! Really enjoying listening to you.
    I just have some case suggestions:
    Jaleayah Davis: some people label this case “a mystery” but nothing about it sounds like murder to me, I would love to hear your perspective on it! I am sure a lot of true crime fans will love it!
    Sherri Papini: hoax? I wonder what you guys think. I personally do not think she faked it, but I am not a professional like you.


  2. I am just getting started on this podcast and I love y’all. I am sitting here listening to the Staircase 1 Episode and the blow poke. I do not think it was the weapon. I think, the stair itself is the weapon. Michael is standing over her bamming her head into the stair, causing the lacerations on the head and blood spatter on his pants.
