Interesting story, questionable investigative methods

Despite the somewhat unstructured way of telling the story, I was enjoying this podcast until they decided to go and harass an innocent elderly man in Luxembourg, whose only crime that we know of is that he has the same name as someone who placed a personal ad in an Australian newspaper in 1994.
Yes, I understand the name is quite rare and I even understand that they wanted to ask him if it was he who placed the ad, but I cannot understand the way they went about it. Not believing him when he said he'd never been in Australia, implying it *must* have been him because he has the same age, accusing him of understanding some English but being reluctant to speak it (guess what Anglophones, not everybody is fluent in your language). And then, after he had even offered to help by contacting his friend, they have the audacity to call HIM rude. Oh and btw, constantly calling a stranger of his age by his first name may be normal in Australia, but it is considered very rude in many other countries, including in Europe.
I feel I have to remind the makers of this podcast that all they have is an ad from 1994, that MAY have been seen by Marion Barter and which then MAY have been the inspiration for the new name she chose. Even if you do find the guy who placed the ad, it doesn't automatically mean that he was ever in contact with Marion. Maybe she just saw it and remembered the name or maybe she got it from an entirely different source. You seem to think that that is impossible. It isn't. She could have come across the name in her youth and always remembered it because it was so unusual. I certainly see no justification for harassing a Luxembourgish man in seventies who never set a foot in Australia and has been married to his current wife for 30 years, well before Marion went missing.
I want to make clear that I'm not attacking Sally. It must be a terrible ordeal for her not knowing what happened to her mum and I don't blame her for wanting to find out and following every possible lead. I do blame the 'professional' journalists who are making this podcast. They should have known better. They should have protected Sally. There was no need for a confrontation at his front door, except for sensationalism.
Just think about it... you just arrived home from holiday and the next day some Chinese people show up at your door, who seem to know you by name and start asking you all sorts of questions in Chinese. Now, you may understand some Chinese, but you really don't speak it well enough to answer the questions. This seems to anger them. They seem convinced that you were in China 25 years ago and don't believe you when you say you weren't. Why? Because you happen to have the same name as someone who placed some personal ad in a paper. On top of that they seem conviced that you had something to do with a woman who disappeared. Wouldn't you be annoyed? Probably even more so when you listen to the podcast and hear that they even called your ex-wife who you divorced 30 years ago! Wouldn't YOU call that harassment?

A lot of repetition

Interesting story, but a lot of repetition. They use the same quotes from people they have interviewed again and again in different episodes or they repeat the same facts. It gets a bit confusing when listening because you keep thinking ‘I have heard this before, did I listen to this episode already?’
