Interesting story but it’s too bad the host injected her liberal opinions the entire series. Trying to portray a law breaking border jumping criminal as a hero is a bit much. There is a process to enter this country and these ppl are no more special or important than the immigrants who enter the...Read full review »

Mr Kid’s poor family is put through the wringer as his self-serving, selective morality drives him to engage in illegal activities. Yes, I was rooting for him, but he is no hero. He is the Walter White of human smuggling.

After the first episode I was hooked and had to subscribe! I love how the podcast includes interviews, and clips from different media sources. Such an amazing story.

Not really rating low the show but rating low the whole situation with elden kidd. Some Orta are hard to listen to with him being so dumb and selfish in so many ways. He ruined his family who are a nice, wholesome, and faithful family who appear to have forgiven elden despite the horrible...Read full review »

The real story: A man cheats on his wife many times while being a coyote. He abandons his wife. Abandons his own young children. Then he remarries a Mexican woman with two infant children and has the balls to say, “I have a very maternal instinct”, which is laughable of course since he abandoned...Read full review »

This world has gone insane, supporting illegal activity in any way, a hero-you have lost your sanity

For several years now I have listened to numerous podcast shows. This one had me most intrigued. Sitting at the edge of my seat wanting to hear more.

Intriguing, informative, and intense full. Not sure how anyone can rate it any less than 5 stars. Didn’t want it to end

Funny, intriguing, gut wrenching.

Propaganda

I’m not sure if this story is believable but it is a good story. It could be true but Eldon comes across as a blowhard so I’m not sure. 🤷‍♀️

He followed his calling, right or wrong, not for us to judge.

Too many ads, but Good job

I just finished episode six & I can’t stop listening Eldon’s story is incredible & Andrea does a great job helping tell his amazing journey. I definitely recommend this podcast to everyone. I also love the fact that unlike a lot of other great podcasts it plays every episode in order....Read full review »

This was a great podcast that told an amazing story from different views. For those saying this gets political, well yes, it would be almost impossible to tell the story without referencing the politics at play affecting the outcome of this man’s story. However I never felt that the political...Read full review »

Listened to this during a road trip throughout the southwest. It was wild, it sparked some good conversation about immigration and the situations that people are thrust into as we passed an endless stream of border patrol vehicles.
heccin bork via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/21
This podcast was very captivating, well put together, well written and the different points of view from each character kept your imagination going. It’s almost unbelievable and yet each episode kept you wanting more!! I love this piece/podcast, it’s so interesting and intriguing that I would...Read full review »

Thank you for such awesome work with this story. I love how different aspects were covered during each episode, having similar experiences told from multiple points of view was a brilliant approach. Looking forward to hearing more of your podcasts!
c0achEr1ka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/21
This is one of the most interesting stories I’ve heard ever. Have no idea how it doesn’t have a 5 star rating. Fantastically told and detailed without being dark or gory.
@tinytantrums via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/14/21
Can’t we just tell stories without the blatant political agenda?
chili wack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/21
Great story and great narrator.
tmaury via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/21
Good show til episodes 9 & 10 where a hidden agenda started to show. Politics do not need to be involved in everything. Also, if you’re going to pronounce “coyote” do it the same each time. Sometimes it was perfect English, sometimes perfect Spanish and sometimes English with Spanish flair.

I do deliveries so it can get pretty boring. This podcast made my trips way better. I was entertained the whole time. Gracias por contarnos esta historia ❤️🥰

Since when did human trafficking (slave trade) make someone a hero ?
k207 mo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
Well produced. Great story. Exposing our flawed immigration system isn’t unpatriotic.
pdxinde via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/21
Over the top excepts for the ads. Long ads during the podcast, not just at the beginning. So I was going to give 4 stars. But then I saw that the only low ratings were front right wing conspiracy theorists, my rating changed to 5. Do not miss out out on the excellent storytelling and...Read full review »
ggggghhhhhhjjkkoihhh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/21
Love the complexity built into this flawed-hero narrative and the novel take on an oft-politicized issue. Also as a side note, to everyone who can’t listen to this because of the young female host’s voice... GET OVER IT! She’s young and doing more than you are. Also, literally every young woman...Read full review »

Don’t waste your time. Seriously.
PodAwfulCultist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/21
Episodes 9 & 10 are especially powerful. US citizens should really be made aware of what the real effects are of dumping more and more money into building walls, border enforcement agencies and dehumanizing people who cross the border for asylum and an opportunity to support themselves and...Read full review »

This is a great podcast. Well told and beautifully written. The US border is a mess a trump and his scum republikkkan agenda has made it 1000x worse. Elden is a hero for having compassion and caring about human beings. Love love love this and hope trumpers can learn some compassion while...Read full review »

I thought he was being extremely naive about transporting things across the border in his “friends” motor home. At that point, he had been in the game long enough to know how things worked. Therefore I think he was either naive or knew what was going on. Thank goodness marijuana is being...Read full review »

Sometimes in life, you run across the story or someone who was willing to lose it all for the good of others and whose conscience would not give him peace until he helped the last one. I find it challenging to blame the historically insufficient and poorly manages US immigration policies on the...Read full review »
TheLare via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/21
Just over the top with political/personal agenda. He is a criminal in 2 countries and the podcast is written and edited to make him a hero and victim. Would have been much better without the personal agenda, and presented as a true account of events.
CRMHCCTX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/21
I enjoyed the main story of Elden Kidd, however I’m not impressed with some of the side plots - episode nine features a former border patrol’s experience, while her story is tragic it seemed very irrelevant to the rest of the podcast and seemed it was used to through the border patrol in an...Read full review »
Samuel Reed via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/21
first i want to respond to some of the other reviews because i don’t believe they’re fair. this podcast does not push “liberal ideas”. human decency and having compassion for others is called being a good person, stop trying to make it political. also, the background information about the...Read full review »

This was so compelling I couldn’t turn it off so I just binged it. I thought the narrator in the beginning I found her voice to be a little distracting but as time went on and the story got more and more compelling her narration just seem to fit it perfectly. I give her five stars as well and...Read full review »

It’s like I was in 3D movie, the story telling was impressive.
Chamilie_Ug via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/21
Really enjoyed this one. His story is fascinating and a tru me testament to the good nature that (hopefully) still exists in our society. Highly recommend!!
WRXNITUP via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/08/21
They do a great job of telling a crazy and incredible story that gives us all much more perspective on how complex of an issue immigration between US and Mexico really is. I hope there’s plans to turn this into a series or a movie.
mikeSmiami via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/21
Loved this podcast! Really learned something new here and enjoyed the story :)
sophstribean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/21
Couldn’t get past the narrator’s voice. Sounds like she is 15.
Graveywr11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/21
Great story, but they make it political with side stories that aren’t important to the story. And of course push for left wing thoughts. Of course they can’t just keep it straight, and decide to sway the listener to political ideas.
Cumster123456789 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/21
What a life! Love someone who can stay true to what is right and not a sheep. Love this podcast, binged it twice.
