Boring

Nothing new and gripping

Really really liked this series..

Kept me engaged in the story and very well written and the hosts are easy to listen too and really get you caring about the case..

I still don’t know what to think about who committed the crime and still have many unresolved questions I’m sure not only I but the reporters/podcasters would love to answer .. However, I see that as a positive towards the narrative the production gave... they really left it up to us to come to our own conclusion.

I really hope to hear more from this series in the future. If so.. You can count me in.

Btw... to the host: (Amber I believe..) it really showed how much of your life was caught up in this case when you were sick and still talking to people and making calls through your Illness.. also made it very relatable.. props to u!

**Adding to review: the way you and the team answered the question in the bonus content was so heartfelt and well said.

The question; to those who haven’t listened to series (or maybe at least the bonus content), was about why the news organization you work for spent money on this case when it should be spent (according to questioner) on more current events in Cincinnati.
You all answered in a way which was exactly why you (Amber) made this case and series so great.. along with your producer Amy and the rest of your team. The listener can really tell how much it effected you and also how the ripple effect still impacts those people in the community even today.

Exceptional. A lot like Serial Season 1.

This podcast is amazing and smart. No unnecessary repetition or drama. It reminds me SO much of Serial Season One. Easily one of the best true crime podcasts I’ve found. Loving it!
