Well done podcast

Very informative and full of detail about an insane crime.

One of the Best

This started out good, but it’s become one of the best true crime shows I’ve ever listened to. There is so much detail; it is made by reporters from WTOP in Washington who actually reported on this case when it happened. This show trusts the listener to keep up and is not condescending.

There’s a lot of unanswered questions still about what transpired in Washington, D.C. on May 14, 2015. Excellent journalism.

A hard listen

The narrator’s delivery has the finesse of a sledgehammer. Lacks critical thinking, she is simply the messenger of somebody else’s news. Repetitive and disjointed. Had to power my way through, which was already difficult enough considering the content of this horrifying story. An all around hard listen.
