Best podcast!

Megan and Jack provide a very detailed account of this tragic case. Very well produced!

Disappointing & Disjointed

I wanted to like this. I enjoy these types of real crime documentaries. But this one is a disorganized mess that I’m surprised is professionally produced by journalists with actual bonafides. The story telling jumps all around and is confusing to keep track of what point of the story you’re at now. At one minute you’re talking about the fire and the crime, then the court proceeding and audio tapes with a little break to talk about the history of the house outside the plot where the house stood. Surprised these passed any sort of editorial scrutiny.
