Disappointing to exploit deaths for actual entertainment and profit

I think it’s pretty shameful, insensitive and greedy to make use of someone’s actual death that happened a few years ago, for your own entertainment to sell as a podcast as a “intriguing story”. I mean the girl died for god sakes and her family lost a daughter/relative. Imagine that happening to someone you know and someone making a fictional podcast dramatizing her actual death? I mean what’s wrong with you?? Do you not have any morals and humanity?

Suspence and mystery at it's finest

I really enjoy listening to Nick's voice and storytelling. I came by PNS when I heard about The Black Tapes, and after listening to Alex, I knew I had to hear more from PNS. Starting out with Tanis, I wasn't hooked right away, but after 3 episodes, I was totally sold. I love it. If you like a mystery, history and conspiracy GO for it, you will love it!
