I love true crime pods. I love no-bullshit hosts/hostesses with dry, sarcastic humor. Not only do both those things apply to Colored Red, but I also love the focus on Colorado. By narrowing the locations to a single state, Laura can deep-dive into cases to paint a picture of the history of the state as a whole, rather than painting a picture of the single crime/killer. I'm entertained and educated all at the same time.
