    After I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the same comment.

    Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Cheers!??????

    You should probably add FirstWeFeast for some interviews in main culture at the same time testing their character.

    I’ll most likely check some of these recommendations out on YouTube, eventually... I'm more of a fan of true crime, especially unsolved murders etc... I've found a few little gems on YouTube, some of which still only have a couple hundred thousand subscribers or less. "Criminally Listed" is my absolute favourite of channels but the channel only posts 1 video a week but its content is well worth waiting for and all of their uploads I re-watch on a regular basis. This channel features the lesser known murders from various locations around the world, most are unsolved murder cases but not all. Another channel I like is "Scary Mysteries". Another is "LutchGreen" whose uploads are perhaps 65% narrated and subject matter is mostly disturbing photographs/images.
