    I took my grandkids to the park today and saw a new VW drive by. The color was tan, made me think of you guys and what you said on the podcast about tan cars...

    I discovered your podcast a few years ago. The first true crime podcast I listened to. It was the one about Mia Zapata, and you discussed in detail about who she was, talked about her life and what happened to her. I didn’t know how the man who killed her was finally caught! You told the events in such detail like a story that I couldn’t stop reading. I could sense that you guys put a lot of work and care into how you tell the story about the victim and the crime. I was hooked to True Crime Garage, your opening with the beer being opened while discussing the brand and where it’s from, and how many bottle caps it earns for how much you like it, makes me thirsty. Lol really it does. It’s also cool that The Captain makes the music for your podcast. I love the theme music. Keep up the amazing job you’re doing and whenever I can get extra money I’ll donate to your beer fund.. Love you guys..

    Thanks Ruby - we appreciate you. Keep your money and spend it on you. Just tell a friend or two about the show and leave a 5-star review. It really helps the GARAGE. Cheer Ru! - Nic :-)

    The trailer was super interesting! Thanks for summarizing it for us Nic. Love when you guys discuss FBI profiling, it is so fascinating to see how its evolved throughout the years. Thanks for the education! Cheers to not getting dumber (is dumber a word?)

    You've been my favorite true crime podcast every since I first started listening to you. I'm not sure wether this is the best place to make a case recommendation, but I'd love you to go through the Norwegian "Mystery at the Oslo Plaza" case. The Norwegian newspaper VG has done a brilliant (and quite long) article on it, which can be found on their website. They have also published other material (i.e. interactive website presenting the main evidence, 3D view of the scene) concerning the case. The case is such a combination of mysterious events and evidence yet so widely unknown, I believe it deserves more coverage. Hope you both have a nice summer!

    Great episode as always. I love listening while on my daily bike ride. Do you guys ever take suggestions for episodes? I would be super thrilled if you did an episode on Darlie Routier. There’s a LOT there and it would be really interesting to hear your take on her.

    Hi Krysten, Thanks for the case suggestion. That's a big complicated mess - but aren't they all. It's on our list - Cheers Nic

    I just heard the Captain say that the defendants in the Ahmaud Arbery trial would get harsher penalties if they were charged with a hate crime. Georgia is, unfortunately, one of the four states without any hate crime statutes on the books. This is why they aren't being charged with a hate crime. I love the show! The way y'all discuss and debate often makes me see a bigger picture about these cases. Thank you for all you do!

    After listening to Nik's summary at the beginning of the 'Slayer' episode, I think that the man responsible for the Delphi Murders could be that kind of predator who saw an unplanned opportunity to live out his fantasies. What do you think? Love the show and keep up the great work!

    Nic, your fascination with profiling and getting into the minds of broken machines is obvious. I think you have an impressive background on the subject and can speak rather intelligently on it, even in professional circles. Obviously your show gives you a forum to pursue this avocation. Am curious if you have considered the idea of writing a book on both this pursuit and your show in general? Your research is always topnotch and your vocabulary reveals someone with literary chops. Getting published seems like an obvious next step for you.

    @Amelia - you are spot on. The Delphi case has all of the elements of a lust murder. This would give us some idea of the "odd" portions of the crime scene that was referenced by the past DA. This is likely a direct reference to the signature displayed at the scene. Again a signature - this would be things that were done at the scene that were not necessary to the commission of the murders. These things most likely would be part of that premeditated fantasy that he has been carrying around in his head years before he ever walked to the Monon High Bridge that day on February 14, 2017. Let today be the day! Cheers Nic

    @mG - Thank you for the very kind words and your continued listenership. You have been hanging around the garage for a long time and it is much appreciated. I've been really kicking the tires on writing a book and have managed to put pen to paper and make some progress. But with a new case each week and many of them two-part cases there's not a lot of extra time. Someday - Cheers Nic

    As a long time listener and employee of Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, I’m particularly interested that you covered this case. Jason Massey is such a disturbing individual. Good job piecing this together without the police reports!

    Thank you Katie, it took a lot of digging. I was surprised to find very little in the way of trial material. But it was the early nineties. I was able to track down a copy of Born Bad but not until after our coverage. The book is great. Cheers Nic
