    Strange Stories UK: Constance Marten and Mark Gordon, Part 3 The Defence.

    Strange Stories UK: Constance Marten and Mark Gordon, Part 3 The Defence.

    I am posting this podcast after week 6  of the trial. The case is intriguing with many odd and unexplained aspects . Week 7 is about to commence with Constance Marten continuing her defence.
    I am wondering how the jury are going to come to a verdict on which they all agree.

    As usual, this podcast is posted without editing and the presentation is not of a professional standard.

Well researched interesting pod

I find this podcast to be so rich in detail, I just listened to the Constance Marten and really appreciated the extra detail that you don’t get in the more court focused pods. The level of research put in and detail shared, in each episode, makes me less concerned about the lo-fi unedited style. In fact it’s refreshing not to have sudden music breaks and so on.

I listen to every episode… however…

I found this podcast by chance while on a lonely delivery run for a well known supermarket. I really enjoy the episodes and I totally understand that you don’t edit and record in one take but I can’t help but feel that lately your podcasts sound extremely muddy and muffled. And sometimes peaking too much. This isn’t a dig at the podcast as a whole but I would really recommend turning the bass down a bit if you can. I also edit film and audio and would be happy to help “tidy up” your pods at no cost if that would help? Keep up the amazing work you do!

Excellent

I've been a subscriber since the start of this pod and always come back every year or so for a binge. Very easy to listen to no matter what you are doing at the time. Wide range of topics which makes it really easy to binge.
