Binged the whole thing in one sitting

Seriously awesome. I'm new to podcasts and I've always had a hard time getting into them because (at least in the true crime genre) I don't have the attention to listen to one (or two) speakers talk and narrate a story for an hour. I'd rather just watch a documentary. The Pit is EXACTLY what I was looking for! The format is very reminiscent of documentaries, as the narrators intercut their own speech with interview clips from folks on the ground. Fantastic listen. Would love to hear more work from these investigators!

The Pit

All episodes have bern well done. I sure hope u follow through with the court proceedings coverage. I am intrigued as to wht the rcmp have for evidence, if they are going to sttempt a Girst degree murder Conviction, with no body.
And as poorly as greg did in ur interview, there isno way his lawyers will allow him to take the stand. This is going to be a great court case.
So please stick with it. Gord.
