    Unfound Goes To School

    Unfound Goes To School

    From very early on in this podcast's existence, I realized that publicizing, researching, and investigating disappearances, although important, were not the total story in solving these cases. In fact, they're not even #1. What is? Education. So, today, listen as I play the very first disappearance class I ever conducted at a university.

    I'm Ed Dentzel.

    And this is Unfound.

Too long

Good content but the interviews are waaayy too long

eebit ,

Keeps getting better!

I’ve been a weekly listener since the beginning. Like most podcasts, the earlier episodes have some audio issues. However, over time, Ed has adapted to new methods which retain the charm and personable feel of the initial content all the way to the present day.
You can tell the host and assistants working on Unfound have invested so much in its success.

My favourite episodes are the Update ones as it brings every case to focus briefly to discuss any changes in circumstance. 🌹

I just started this podcast and am on my second episode - I definitely agree with some of the comments that there is just too much rambling at the beginning...its very easy to lose interest which is sad as these podcasts are a serious matter. I will try another episode then decide.
