Incredibly well done

I’ve sat here and thought a lot about what I what I want to articulate in this review. First and foremost this podcast is incredibly well executed and detailed.

I’m a mother, and a true crime podcast enthusiast. This podcast was difficult to hear. Honestly, it was traumatizing. Be prepared for that. I wasn’t and so it’s affected me a lot. The stories haunt me.

What frustrates me the most about this story is how little publicity it actually got at the time. That surprised me, I guess we don’t want to think of what people are capable of. I really appreciated the podcast for this reason. Knowledge is power. Ben is exhausting, his lack of remorse and twisted perspective is truly stunning.

This podcast is well worth the listen. Be prepared though. It’s chilling and honestly, painful. It taught me many things including what to watch for, for my own child. I’m grateful for that.
