So I'm super excited. We've only done Volume One. And not that we're coming with a ton more. There's a few more, but I like to reset every now and again. And beyond just talking about our fans who've given us which we love five star reviews on Apple podcast. It's also just thanking our fans. Yeah, you know, and encouraging them to continue listening, viewing and leaving us messages and feedback. Because we get it it means a lot to us. And we're growing something here.
You know, it's that old comedian. Hello, is this thing on? Yeah, it is odd. It really is on? And you know, stuff like this, the reviews, the comments, those are reminders that yes, this thing is on?
Yeah, thank goodness, someone out there is listening. So, yes. So we'll go over very quickly. Like I said, sometimes there's four or five. And sometimes there's one. And that's great. And we also have another comment from a fan. But we have one apple podcasts five star review. The range of this, I always like to kind of keep us up to date, but we left off in June. So this is July 2021, up to Jan 2022. Now there's reason why we had kind of we went a little dark and we've explained this on the YouTube Live Channel. While when we launched that episode about going to YouTube Live, we kind of gave a hey, this is where we've been, this is where we're going. And we can do some of that here as well. But as far as our ratings go our apple five star ratings, we have 12 now and we're still holding south of 5.0.
Nice. I haven't kept track of the top of the heap.
So last time we were at 10. Now we're at 12. So that's holding true well done on you fans. Obviously, we need more we encourage that it takes how long? soudha Click a five star to
click. Hang on. Let me count one 1000 I can't even get through one. 1000 sorry, you got to do one Mississippi. I can't get through one Mrs. Don't
hit one by mistake. Don't do it. Because because you can't retract it. You can't retract it. If you don't like us. Just ignore it. Don't even if you don't like us, and that's okay. Just move on down the road.
Have a great life. Okay. See you. Okay, it's all right. Yeah. All right. But yeah, if you do like us, give us that five star, it does make a difference. The algorithms Oh, my God, don't get me started on the algorithms. It makes a difference to leave comments to leave reviews to click that star. It does make a difference.
Yep. So I'm gonna let you do the honors of our first and only for this episode five star review on Apple podcast.
This is a five star review from M M M. 2331. And it's titled more please. And it says I love these guys from let's talk Cobra Kai, that's a cry is fun and interesting. Please make more. Well, thank you. Mmm 2331. So I'm under the impression that this is a let's talk Cobra Kai fan, who has now stepped over and started listening to that's a crime. And I definitely appreciate that. Jason I we big time. Appreciate that. What that means is that you're a fan. And now you will listen to whatever else we got. Hell, if we came out with another show, you might even listen to that. So thank you. We do. Well, you have another show. Yeah, there's a lot. So there's a lot of stuff going on with just curious media. Right? I am involved with two shows actively. Jason is involved with three shows actively, and more to come. Believe me, folks, we're not going to tell you yet or tease anything yet. But there's a lot more to come from just curious media. So yeah, very excited when we get these cross transfer fans here.
Huge. Yes, M M M 2331. So I wasn't gonna say this, but it's actually my license plate as well. So just the small coincidence.
Mmm. Must make more Hang on. Maybe that's why it says more. Please. Mmm. Must make more.
Oh, I like that. Well, I love this. I really do. Because I love a fan who's a fan of just curious fan of Let's Talk Cobra Kai. Now they've come over. And not only they're a fan, they're encouraging us to make more. And there's a reason for that. And let me just delve into that. We've done it in the past like I mentioned, but here's kind of our backstory. Yeah, this Oh launched. That's a crime launched in May 2021. And we came out three episodes hot and heavy because we came out in the middle of the month. I think it was May 12. June five. So we're hitting every week. So it's a weekly show. Up, up, up, up, up up. Ah, we get into July, we have another one. And then south. I've got to move across the country again. Yes, crazy. I did it. And so I thought, oh, yeah, we'll keep this going. We had to keep let's tack over KY going, because we've doing it longer a lot of responsibilities. And I was trying to juggle this and it was just too great. So we had no episodes in August.
Oh, zero goose egg, under the sign of Leo either,
and that is when M M. M. 2331. Did this review. So yes, please make more because shows come and go. This is a podcast space.
That is true. I've seen that. And by the way, that doesn't make me happy. I'm not excited that other podcasters come and go I want them to stay. I want our space to be totally legitimize. But yeah, there are people come and go. We've seen it in the world of Let's Talk Cobra Kai, we've seen other Cobra Kai related shows come and go. So yeah, there was a little love there. And yeah, mmm 2331 reached out and said, Please make more.
Yeah, are more pleased was the title, which I liked that as well. Well, then in September, I got my studio set up. We had two episodes in September, and two in October, beginning to hit our stride again. And November for and then in December five. And then in January, for and with that Sal, we're seeing an uptick in downloads, and just interaction with fans. And so it's super exciting. We've also been able to cover a wide range of crimes. And so what do we cover here on that's a crime.
That's a crime. We cover everything from a misdemeanor to a murder. And believe me, we absolutely do. We do. We are all over the place.
And that's what I like about this show too. It gives us an opportunity to flex new muscles and I mean get into a crime show. I always saw it this way. I wanted to do fun lighter things, you know, heist, or coin thieves to the some of the more popular serial killers, murderers that we know of. So I'm always scanning looking. It's like, oh, this is current or this is older. I didn't know this. And oh, hey, let's hit one of these historic ones again, like the baby Lindbergh kidnapping. So it does keep us guessing. So we hope we keep you guessing as a fan. It's not just like, oh, here comes that again. We want to keep them on their toes. And I like to keep you on your toes too. So
you do you absolutely. Do. You know you've presented me with some things I'd never heard before made me interested in some things I hadn't known about. So no, no, thank you for I mean, here I am in the copilot seat. And yet I'm along for the ride too. So thank you very much.
I couldn't do it without you, sir. So thank you. And now we have this is a fan comment. It came in a different way. It wasn't an apple review, which is fine. We love interactions. But this comes from Charles W. And he says Jason Insell our most engaging, thoughtful, intelligent, and amusing conversationalist and they make Boon companions on the river. Why? What a great compliment and Boon companions mean great friends constant friends. That's an old term I had to look it up but absolutely what a compliment.
That's great. Do you know this person this is this your dad
is not my father. I have met Charles W have had the pleasure, great person got turned on to the show. And I just kind of mentioned it. Haven't seen him since we've just emailed a couple of times. Well, he went on a deep dive said he was at the gym working out and enjoying it. So hey, that just means the world to me when someone can just share you know what they thought their takeaways. Take that little bit. I mean, listen, I'm a fan of several podcasts. Rarely do I write out to them, you know, so I know it's like that extra hurdle like Well hang on, let me do this, but we need it. We appreciate it. And guess what, Sal? Yes, we like to also share these great reviews with everybody so you're gonna get your name in a spoken on the show. In fact on Let's Talk Cobra Kai, we've gotten so far to have some of our fans on episode some our Patreon which will there's going to be a Patreon at some point soon for that to crime as well. But that's happened and we have more scheduled so a lot of fun stuff can happen when your fans are really behind you and really kind of taken us to the next level.
Yeah, and I'm proud of the show because you know what, for so long I've been proud of Let's Talk Cobra Kai and I still am. This show was kind of coming along was kind of building we're kind of hitting a stride now. I feel we are at our stride. Yes. And now I am just as proud of that's a crime as I am of Let's Talk Cobra Kai.
I agree with you completely. So beyond that we've mentioned this a couple of times in this episode, but we are on YouTube Live, Saudi want to tell them what they need to do and how they can find us there?
Yeah, well, first of all, let me just give a special thanks to Charles W. Thank you for this fantastic comment. I'm going to just assume that you mean everything you said. And I appreciate that I really do. We like really appreciate them. Thank you, Charles.

I listened to our show off of just curious media.com page. That's where I listened to it. And that's up Buzzsprout I believe, right?
Yeah, it's powered by that. But there's a widget built in. So it's just so darn easy. Click a button. But if you're like, Well, no, I like Spotify, well, then that will also take you there, go to our website, click on it, boom,
you have a lot of options. And we also recently,
it took a while. So because I was like do I want to manage a bunch of social media accounts? Or do I just want to do just curious media. So let's talk Cobra Kai has its own thing. It's been going for a few years. So now I'm happy to say that I've secured we've secured a Facebook and Instagram for that to crime. And Saudi want to give them the handle?
Well, that's going to be all one word. That's a crime podcast. That's it. It doesn't make a difference. If they go up or lower. It can be all low does not matter. It doesn't matter. That's a crime podcast all one word.
Yeah, so we don't have a lot on there. But we're starting to in fact, the Facebook every time we do an episode, there's a audio player version of that episode that goes live on Facebook. I'm starting to create these really cool, kind of like graphics video with some audio on there. And it's like a 30 to 62nd Little highlight of an episode. If it's DB Cooper, there's an image of DB Cooper and then you hear our voice for like a minute, just a taste of that episode. So look for more of that. And you know what? It sounds cliche, Sal, but if you love the show, share it with others. I mean, hey, we're not asking for anything, but just give us a shot. You might enjoy it. Yeah,
especially one thing I've noticed is, you know, let's talk Cobra Kai is so niche. So Nish, whichever word? I tell people. Hey, listen, if you don't care about Karate Kid or Cobra Kai, don't listen to Let's Talk Cobra. I tell people that, you know, if you liked the show, it's a must listen, if you love the movies, it's a must listen. But if you don't watch the show, whatever. That's a crime. I find everywhere I go and everyone I've talked to so many people are interested in true crime. It's a big thing. There's a lot of true crime fans out there. They want to hear it. So I'm proud to be on that platform too.
Yeah, absolutely. But yeah, that is really it. I just wanted to come back with you. So share these great comments and reviews and they were fantastic. Charles W.
