  1. I was literally watching the podcast about the girl whose homie from the internet killed her this morning

  2. especially helpful for unsolved crimes. I only wish Britt was more involved as the the co-host. Scary but fascinating topic.

  3. I listen to their podcast on Spotify and follow them on all social media platforms. I was wondering though if any hard core fans like myself have found a YouTube channel for them?? Ashley and Brit, you ladies are badass and your podcast is amazing. I love it 🙂

  4. Her cohost needs to go. She’s just annoying. All she does is say “what?!” And “no!”.

  5. I happen to stumble across this podcast on spotify and now I am going to every EP. Best Crime Podcast…

  6. Her podcast is ok, but i'm sad with the way she have conversation with britt. Feels like shes not listening and not giving conversation with co host. I like my favorite murder than this

  7. Such an amazing podcast!
    Not only are Ashley & Britt amazing, but they are using their platform to bring awareness to cases that are unsolved, with hope that families will be able to have closure one day. Such an amazing group of people. ❤️

  8. Love love love This podcast!! I am hooked and listed to every episode 😀 keep up the good work ladiessssss

  9. Too bad she's been plagiarizing everybody else's work she doesn't do the legwork of a real reporter she just finds sometimes even solved cases I just regurgitate the information she sees off the internet she just got caught for it recently

  10. I listen to this podcast almost daily while I am at work..I just love it to there is no other true crime podcast presenters out there that can compete with Ashley & Britt..

  11. Let’s just make sure she is really helping these victims and not just storytelling. There is a difference. And I’ve never heard her mention or give credit to any authors of articles or researchers who have been the ones that are going out there and knocking on those doors to get the info she needs to tell the story. That’s important in journalism respect 🙂
