Golden

These Podcasts are SO well done, professional, open and interesting. I always hold out for each new episode to be released. Sad to have finished all of them now!

Great listening

In the typical unravel style, this pod is fair and balance. Very well researched as you would expect from Rachael and Josie. Whilst both reporters seemed to build a rapport with lawyer x, I didn’t feel they pushed me towards an opinion one way or another. Great work and I hope for more follow ups in the future

Fascinating but biased

While the story is interesting and the narrative well constructed, the biased persuasive language used when both describing and discussing Nicola as opposed to Vic Police is blatant.
