Somehow making terrible incidents sound somewhat “fun” and educational
Though some of the topics are admittedly too dark for me… I really enjoy the banter of the hosts as well as Mike’s obvious careful preparation for each episode. You can tell he’s done his research and written with calculated care rather than riffing off-the-cuff. The subjects are treated seriously, but the context is treated with some humor and lightness. Overall, makes very bitter pills, much easier to swallow as they expose bits of history that you may have seen briefly in the news, but have much more backstory. They are especially careful to be respectful of the victims in the heinous crimes they document.
