Horrific Story Told w/ Respect

Horrifying real life crime told with compassion and journalistic integrity. I am heartbroken for the family and all who knew them.

Well done podcast!

Great podcast! Interesting without hype, hyperbole, or sensationalism. I live in Boston not DC and don’t know the reporter or her news organization. In fact, I never turn to TV news orgs because too often their news is just repetitive, fluff and hype. But, just listening to the first 6 episodes of this podcast, I trust this podcast and I trust the presenter and her team. This kind of journalism helps restore my trust in mainstream journalism. Thank you for an interesting podcast and the lesson in what good journalism can be.
