Pick a better story next time(season 1)

The production is good, if not stereotypic of the genre. It imitates the “investigative journalism around an event” of serial that is the new norm for these shows. Unfortunately the story is not engaging. There are so many stories to be told out there and doing a Hollywood sob story is so superficial. I’m sure the networks other shows can be great because of the production but I gave up after 5 tedious episodes.

Edited for season 3

The first few episodes are really interesting, unfortunately as you listen and the “mystery” is unraveled you discover the story is super uninteresting. The individuals involved are just……not worthy people to learn about for 9 episodes. This falls into the category of “podcast host makes a show about something that happened in his town” which is quite a trope. When you do this, you inevitably stretch a small story too far. Standard large production quality here, lots of editing, lots of music and lots of “I’m 12 and this is deep” over dramatising. Overall poor.

Great podcasts but please less adverts!!!

I get most podcasts nowadays want you to pay for their ad free version. I get they need sponsors. But this otherwise excellent podcast has more adverts than content now. One interruption is ok. Three or four isn’t. It really puts me off listening
