Case update

Would be nice to know what happens to all the abusers (teachers if they can be called that) from the 70s/80s!

Mixed

It is a really sad and internering case. The journalist has dug deep, and the community becomes more involved as the podcast unfolds. As a way to find justice for Lynn Dawson and her friends and family, it is amazing - as a podcast, it is way too long and there is a lot of repetition. It is hard to get through all the episodes.

Momentum drags

There is too much speculation and too little hard evidence in this episode. The journalist is too invasive.
