Sooooo good!

Very well done!

GabbieLL ,

Drags on, you don’t need to listen to all episodes

At first I thought I would like this podcast. Then they kept reading passages of the suspects terrible book throughout. So cringe. Get to the actual story, why are we spending so much time on this fictional story.

They also play part of a completely different podcast in the middle of an episode?!? Wonder and their ads *eyeroll*

You also don’t need to listen to all the episodes. They really drag the story along with the middle episodes. I found myself skipping around so much that I just skipped some entirely. Nothing from any of those episodes comes into play in the final episode with the trial.

This podcast did not leave me wanting more, I was not compelled by the story or the narration. Would not recommend. There are way better true crime podcasts out there.

Love this

I love the narrator’s voice. It’s giving Desperate Housewives vibes!
