Bailey tells the best stories!

I am so excited and this is literally the first podcast I am listening to. Bailey's Murder and Mystery series is the best and I know Dark History is going to be just as addictive!

Too many ads

As much as I love Bailey from her Murder series on YouTube, this series is driving me nuts with Audible. I'm already paying for the platform, then to be hit with ad after ad after ad, it's very annoying. If I'm driving or working, I can't easily grab my phone to fast-forward every few minutes. I know podcasters need to earn money, but I'm already paying way too much money for the app to start and get ads, too. Please do an ad free or fewer ad version with the Audible version. No ads is why I upgrade to paid format.

Story was ok sounded like another Erin Brocovich

Love hearing Bailey tell the story and enjoyed it so much. The only down side was that it was hard to distinguish story from ads, maybe a little music in between? I listen while enjoying the devils lettuce lol

Sadly we all have suffered from companies like this. Even if we shut them down, we still have it in our blood etc

Very first podcast

Love Bailey. Have been following her for years. Wasn't sure about a podcast but for my first one I'm pretty happy. If you love Murder, Makeup, Monday this is fun extra!

Bailey rocks it

I absolutely love listening to Bailey. Got hooked on Murder Make-up Monday's and love the Dark History series as well. Like others have mentioned, too many ads for a service we pay for. I can listen to the same podcast on YouTube for free with ads.

Love it!

I'm a huge fan of Bailey! She's funny, relatable and every episode is informative. yeah ad interruptions are annoying but I honestly don't find them that bad when she's doing them. I get that she has bills to pay too.
