Algorithm Ep. 1 Exclusive Listen
Hi, Monster fans! Since you enjoy our podcast, we think you'll also like the new true-crime podcast, Algorithm. Check out the first episode to see for yourself!
About Algorithm: When Afrikka Hardy was strangled in 2014 it seemed completely random, but it wasn’t. It was part of a pattern. Four years earlier, reporter Thomas Hargrove had created an algorithm to detect serial killers and flagged Gary, Indiana as the site of an unusual number of strangulations. But when Hargrove reached out to warn local police he was ignored -- until Afrikka Hardy was murdered, and those cold cases suddenly didn’t look so cold. Algorithm follows the investigation into Afrikka’s murder, exposing the warnings that police ignored, and uncovering more than anyone expected -- that a serial killer was strangling women in Gary, Indiana could've been stopped. And that Afrikka Hardy should be alive today. This podcast will explore how technology can be used to identify and track serial killers, and how an algorithm can influence the way homicides are investigated all across the country.

Harrowing and incredibly real, it gives voice to those affected by this horror. I would appreciate if they added a warning on the podcast page or at the start of eps saying it focuses on child murders. This should be heard and I feel like the shock of not knowing what one is getting themselves into might turn them off. Excellent research and very professionally done while still maintaining heart!
Good but would be better without all the background music
It is well made but I don’t appreciate all the sound effects under the quotes.. can’t hardly reach out emotionally to Patrick’s brother while he is telling his story, too much bombastic sound effects under his voice that distract me. The story is horrific enough without all the music.
Interesting, but that background music/those sounds are só loud, long and só disturbing! So I will not continue to listening to this podcast...
