    Algorithm Ep. 1 Exclusive Listen

    Hi, Monster fans! Since you enjoy our podcast, we think you'll also like the new true-crime podcast, Algorithm. Check out the first episode to see for yourself!
    About Algorithm: When Afrikka Hardy was strangled in 2014 it seemed completely random, but it wasn’t. It was part of a pattern. Four years earlier, reporter Thomas Hargrove had created an algorithm to detect serial killers and flagged Gary, Indiana as the site of an unusual number of strangulations. But when Hargrove reached out to warn local police he was ignored -- until Afrikka Hardy was murdered, and those cold cases suddenly didn’t look so cold. Algorithm follows the investigation into Afrikka’s murder, exposing the warnings that police ignored, and uncovering more than anyone expected -- that a serial killer was strangling women in Gary, Indiana could've been stopped. And that Afrikka Hardy should be alive today. This podcast will explore how technology can be used to identify and track serial killers, and how an algorithm can influence the way homicides are investigated all across the country.

Pretty good

Excellent narration, cool non irritating soundtrack and plenty of interesting interviews from the time of the incidents and current ones too.
Perhaps the weakest in the “Monster” series but totally worth a listen.
A truly sad and unnecessarily violent chapter in turn of the century America.
These monsters get no sympathy from me.

Incredible work

Thank you for this in depth look at the DC sniper attacks. Please keep up the great work. You provide a balanced report, showing both sides. It’s never as simple as good/bad.

Loved it but the ads in the middle were annoying

Can you please put a shorter ad in the middle or remove it completely, I don’t need two guys yelling in my ear at 2 AM when I’m trying to pass out.
It’s so jarring please stop doing it, ads at start and end are fine and more then enough.
