Mary’s interviews of other podcasters really has opened my ears to new shows! She is great with the questions and she really knows how to converse with her guests.

So good

Fun! It’s a ride with a soft sweet southern accent guide into pods you may be debating about listening to OR a follow-up tea dropping update on your favorites! Either way entertaining while useful!

I love all of Mary Payne’s podcasts, but her interview with Sheila Wysocki is my favorite so far.

I remember the Susan Powell case. Very sad and creepy on all levels. I hope there is closure at some point. Great job, Mary Payne!

Loved to hear the behind the scenes
