Rotten but still a little sweet! Rotten Mango is a true crime + all things spooky podcast. We love doing deep dives into the darkest crimes and we tend to not leave out any details - which can get a little rotten at times.

Welcome to Rotten Mango but don’t worry it all comes with a seasoning of comedy/sweetness.
