Brilliant

Very well researched, gives clear explanations of background of issues in case and lovely narration!

Very odd intonation

This is a well researched and interesting case however it was let down terribly by the very odd narrative style of one of the reporters. Her intonation and odd ‘news reporter’ style very neatly made me give up 5 minutes into the first episode. I persisted but was constantly irritated by her very bizarre presentation. The other host was far more engaging. The editing is appalling, sounds of dropped mics, repetition, clunky cuts are inexcusable. I know it is independently funded but from experience there are many editors out there prepared to work for free with a far superior professionalism. From reading other reviews I believe that the host I referenced here is Eileen and to be honest I won’t listen to anything else produced if she is a host. She may well be an exceptional researcher but perhaps she should leave the presenting to Emily. Everyone has their own skill set- presenting (in this style) just doesn’t work.

Typical, absolutely bloody typical...

Of the american police to charge in with blinders on and convict the nearest person within sight!
This podcast is so well done with a comprehensive and well researched narrative and gives a compassionate and well balanced view of what happened to poor Jacqueline - but will have you shaking your head and huffing and puffing at the police
