Extremely enjoyable

Audrey Gillian’s many years of expertise and experience really come to light when listening to this podcast. It’s such an interesting story which I binged I’m 2 sessions. She did such a fantastic job of giving a personal look at the victims rather than painting them in the light the police did at the time. This podcast is a perfect example of top class journalism. I really can’t recommend it enough.

Another podcast ruined by pushing agendas

This seemed like an interesting podcast , but unfortunately like many Tv shows of today are ruined trying to push an agenda. I just feel it went OTT focusing on the misogyny of the police and press… it’s like sitting through some kind of lecture where the actual crimes themselves take a back seat . I’m sick of these liberal agendas been pushed in my face

Everyone needs to hear this story !

My sister sent me this podcast and it literally is one of the best series I’ve ever listened to. While this would satisfy the true crime fans- it’s so much more and is a vivid, fascinating examination of how we treat female victims of violence. This deeply moving tale has given these women their humanity & dignity x it is so well told and is just a must listen.
