Fantastic

Great podcast, well written, well presented and easy to follow.
The actual case itself is very sad, I’m not sure what to think myself but things are presented well from both sides.
Please make more podcasts!!
Also, the music is great, goes really well with the content

Excellent podcast, thank you.

I really enjoyed the style and delivery of this unfathomable story .. 'quantum suicide' .. who knew? Thank you to the journalists who delved deep and shared their own heart breaking stories to add to the gravitas of this sorry tale. No winners here but you guys did great enlightening us to this tragedy. Loved the music and thanks so much for being ad free - such a treat as a podcast addict, am now onto WVU Coed Murders!

Pointless music takes away from a good podcast

Another podcast that for some reason feels that music - sometimes overbearing - takes away some of the enjoyment of story. Whilst each episode is quite short, I would have preferred longer and less episodes rather than short episodes padded out with music. It’s just a bugbear of mine 🤷‍♀️😉. That aside sad story, well reported - good podcast - thank you.
