Good! Well researched!

Excellent podcast! Breaking down the crime and investigation. Only criticism I have is the chat needs to be slowed down a bit.

Great potential - Where’s the next episode?

Tackling a well worn case like this is always going to be difficult, but these first few episodes are well researched and written, and while nothing talked about so far (except the Collins interview) is information that can’t already be found on the internet, I appreciate that it’s useful contextual material. However as someone already familiar with the case, I’m excited to get onto the new interviews and the reinvestigation. I’m therefore finding it a little frustrating that there are sometimes large gaps between uploads, despite promises of weekly episodes. For example, as I write on the 12th July, there hasn’t been an episode since the 25th June, despite assurance that the following episode would be “next week”. I can understand that researching and creating a show about such a complex case is time consuming, but it’s annoying for the listener to be told to expect episodes imminently, only for them to arrive weeks late. I don’t think anyone would mind if episodes arrived as and when they are ready, as long as it was made clear not to expect weekly uploads. We all want to hear unrushed, quality research, after all!

Perhaps the editing could be tightened up a bit - a few long pauses and mistimed fades here and there, but overall this podcast is well thought out, enjoyable and has great potential. I’m looking forward to future episodes and a fresh consideration of this endlessly fascinating case.
