    Hell and Gone Murder Line: Jarrod Green Part 1

    Hell and Gone Murder Line: Jarrod Green Part 1

    Shannon Green remembers her baby brother Jarrod as the kid who was always laughing and smiling with a mischievous sense of humor. She said Jarrod was a little bit naive, someone who always trusted others and would do anything for a friend. 
    In 1993, Jarrod graduated from Searcy High School in Arkansas. Eventually, he moved out of his parents house, started junior college and got a job at the Walmart distribution center. But then, in 1994, the problems started. Jarrod started getting involved in drugs and using methamphetamines. Within a shockingly short period of time, he was showing signs of addiction. Then, on September 30, 1994, Jarrod Green disappeared. His family continues to search for him.

So. Many. Ads.

Love the podcast but I can’t truly get into it with all the ads

Too Bad the Music takes away from the Story!

Whoever decided to add background music when they’re talking should be FIRED! So annoying, does not even match the tone of the story. At one point there’s a clanking noise and I turned up my volume because I thought it was coming from outside but it’s in the story while they’re talking.
Then the ads too repetitive and too long.

Brilliant and A Great Binge!

From Season 1 to Season 4 I have enjoyed binging on this podcast! However, I couldn’t help but become emotionally invested as the episodes rolled by. Catherine Townsend has really grown into the role of Seasoned Podcaster! I have to stop short of 5 stars as it, sadly is a dumping ground for commercials for other podcasts, and it’s “sad” because is disruptive and it disrespects the amazing things this podcast is accomplishing and reminds me that Podcasts are a business.
