So much silence

Is there something wrong with my phone? Or does this podcast have a 20second silence every couple of minutes? Hard to listen to when there is so much silence it seems disjointed. And the music which cuts in half way through convos. I don’t understand what’s happened here. I just want to listen to the podcast without the music and gaps.

Need links

Great podcast dedicated to bringing awareness to the missing. Would be great to have the website and all relevant links in show notes as searching for the website brings a lot of irrelevant results or other podcasts.

Missing

Very much intrigued by these pod cast, a girl I went to school with miss Amelia Hausia went missing as a young adult and I’ll never stop wondering where she is, she was a very positive inspiring lady in my school years as she never discriminated and made everyone feel inspired .
