But thanks to dogged investigators and breakthroughs in forensic technology, these cases become part of the rare 1% of cold cases that are ever solved. Hosted by Brooke Gittings ("Convicted" and "Actual Innocence") and featuring the voice of original Cold Case Files host, Bill Kurtis.

What is this podcast offering to the amazing show Cold Case Files??? No follow up interviews, no professional analysis, no real updates. This is the laziest podcast I’ve ever heard. Omg and the boilerplate social worker angle is obvious and tedious. New host please. This show could be great. Please!!!!

Maybe consider a new host? I find myself skipping through some of her unwanted commentary and opinions. It’s hard enough to get through with her voice. Oye. I jump for joy when it’s a Bill Kurtis episode! I love listening to cold case files but have a hard time listening to the Brook girl.
