“Inside Salem” was a first class podcast. I’ve listened to every episode and commend Michael and the team that made it happen. I appreciated all the interviews and behind the scenes intel. Bravo for a job well done! I’m sorry to see it end.

I think he and his writers need their heads examined. Getting rid of Freddy Smith, Chandler Massey and Galen Gearing was so stupid, and I mean stupid.
