Good content but too argumentative

The content is great but the hosts can’t seem to get along. There’s an undercurrent of threatened reactiveness that injects a stressful tone into the podcast.

Interesting podcast

The 2 hosts, Jim Clemente and Laura Richards are great at the job. Very knowledgeable. The other “host” Lisa Zambetti is rather irritating and ignorant.

My love has tapered off....

While I've always found Jim's attitude to be off putting, he comes off as arrogant, I respected what he brought to the table professionally.
That was until the Jon Benet Ramsey episodes, culminating in an unfinished series and the disappearance of the previous episodes, with no explanation to listeners. (One can assume due to the lawsuit initiated by Burke Ramsey in reference to the docuseries produced by CBS by Jim and Laura)
I'm hard pressed to call any of the JBR series 'professional'. It was apparent to me that from the beginning there was a mindset that Burke was involved in the death of his sister and the parents covered it up. A cursory look will point to a few plausible theories in the JBR case, but we heard little to nothing of these on the podcast. It felt like a witch hunt....of a 9/10yr old boy who has since had to live his life hiding from media. Shame on all of you for allowing such a theory to be presented as factual. CBS deserves to be sued as do a few other players in this media drama.
Jim's treatment of Lisa during one episode prompted an explanation by her (and later him) on their Facebook page. It seems ironic that Laura, an advocate for domestic abuse, sits idly by while Jim behaves in what MANY perceived as abusive.....and continues to stay silent as Lisa pens an explanation that felt like "Oh no, but you all just don't understand him the way I do"
Ugh. Just gross.
Both Jim and Laura regularly cut Lisa off and it's painful to listen to her assert a possible question or theory, only to have Jim intellectually brow beat her ...and then listen to Lisa fold.
The dynamics of this podcast are off.
Too much ego from 2 of the 3, who love to basically rhyme off their CV’s, and name drop about cases they’ve worked on with who.
I need a new favourite podcast.
