Absolutely exceptional ❤️

Already being a subscriber to Morbidology, I knew going in how good Emily G Thompson is with research and narration and once again she’s done it with The Shattered Window, a truly tragic case of a young girl vanishing in the night with virtually no clue as to what happened other than the eponymous shattered window. Excellently partnered with her co-host Eileen Macfarlane, they tell this story with superb research and heartfelt compassion. If you love true crime you have to listen to these two exceptional hosts as they take you through this heartbreaking case ❤️
