Amazing!

Such a great podcast. You have done such a fantastic job at covering this case and have done so in an empathetic and responsible way. So well researched and had brought attention to this case. Thank you for such a great podcast!

First episode

It’s ok. The first episode I fast forwarded some parts- too much unnecessary detail.
The host talks about himself, a lot.

Fascinating but frustrating story

This is yet another story of police who are inexplicably reluctant to investigate this disappearance fully and in a timely manner. Just listened to episode 6 where the new police chief (after reviewing the case for more than a year) orders an excavation of an area at Cal Poly. When remains are found, it will take “weeks or even months” for the remains to be identified as to whether they are animal or human. Has the Smart family not waited long enough for some action to be taken that this process could be fast tracked?
