Informative, based in facts

Sten does an excellent job laying out the rafts in a non-biased manner. While a heartbreaking story, I appreciate the way the podcast told this story.

Shacker ,

Riveting is putting it mildly.

The reporters over at The Day are incredibly talented storytellers. This was a horrific crime but this podcast went out of its way to be fair to both perpetrator and the victims.

Taylor (from season 1) and Sten put their souls into this podcast and the effort shows. We’ll done to the entire podcast team - I look forward to your next one (but hopefully it’ll be about something far less benign than this).

Todt Family season 2

Long awaited episode. There are so many unanswered questions, especially if there was any involvement in the murders by Megan. Tony’s hospital interrogation (found in YT) & his first police interview point to her participation.
Megan’s journals, Megan’s phone records (Tony’s phone records), internet searches by both regarding the apocalypse, Megan aunt’s statements as to when she actually last spoke with her by phone, the ”note”, the letter to Tony’s father - all these items along with relative statements could include or exclude Megan. Although many of these mentioned items were taken into evidence that would either clear her or put some of the culpability onto her, these items were not presented during the trial. Megan’s aunt was not called to testify although she was probably the last person, other than Tony to actually speak with her.!?
I realize that Tony was the one on trial here (not Megan) and he definitely was guilty, yet there are so many items that point to Megan also.
Hoping that you get to all of these unanswered questions in your upcoming podcasts.
I appreciate the depth of coverage that you have presented with this case.
