Bad story telling...

Disclaimer: I only listened to the firsst episode. I seemed like the first episode, all 30 minutes of it, should have been done in five minutes-maybe ten. I kept waiting for the story of what happened to start. It didn't! Just a bunch of facts thrown at the audience... And too much information of the investigators, I wanted to hear about the case! What the heck does 5 Roses refers to and what happened? I liked the host though. Oh well, moving on...

Cannot listen

I just cannot listen past episode 2. The man(investigator/cop) that talks is whisper talking. I enjoy the woman’s voice, the host, but there is no organization of the information. Disappointing...

Disappointed

I was a little surprised seeing that this was an 11Alive podcast that the production was so poor. It was distracting that the narrator speaks in present tense nearly always, even when the case happened 50 - 60 years ago. It would make sense to use that tense when describing where she, the researcher, is at, but not when describing events from decades past.
She sort of apologized for the sound quality of a recording from the time period, but that sound was as good as the rest. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a podcast where there’s a roaring white sound during pauses in EVERY interview.
The most effort seems to be in the background music- it sounds like a local tv mini doc special and like it was done almost on the fly. No narrative, just endless interviews. I feel sort of bad tearing it down, but like I said, if 11Alive was the sponsor, we should expect more.
