So many ads

Hard to get into an episode when they are so broken up with ads.

Gripping story, but lacked dpersonal truth and expert analysis.

Overall I enjoyed this season and felt like I was drinking a cocktail of emotions on an unhinged rollercoaster. I really felt for Benita, especially in the moments where the podcast played the recorded messages that sounded so sweet at the beginning, it later made me gagged after the story unfolded. However, there was something that bothered me throughout the podcast - especially in the final episodes (and bonus interview). I personally felt that Benita was not honest in her reason to expose Dr. Paolo. From what was portrayed, the exposé seemed like it was less about the victims under his professional care, and more about settling the score. And if she just outright said that, I would’ve enjoyed the podcast a lot more. What he did to her was diabolical and how she directed public attention through the extremities of her trauma to consider the allegations of the 4 whistleblowers + 3 part docu-series was awesome. She should’ve owned that. It just didn’t felt authentic to me that she did this for the victims under his professional care. A final criticism is that I would’ve liked to hear more of the 4 surgeon’s explanation of their discoveries in detail, and perhaps an expert in the field unrelated to the case to analyse the practice and also give their professional opinion.
