Season 3: In 1984, a father of three disappeared while working at a mysterious Cincinnati plant. It turned out he’d met a gruesome fate: Pieces of bone, his eyeglasses and walkie-talkie were uncovered inside a vat that reached 1350 degrees Fahrenheit. Two months later, the Fernald Feed Materials Production Center was revealed to have been processing uranium – and polluting the region. The dead man’s children believe their father was murdered because he intended to expose how the plant had been releasing millions of pounds of uranium dust into the atmosphere. We’re hoping to figure out: Did 39-year-old David Bocks kill himself, as Fernald officials alleged, or was he more likely killed?

Season 2: A soft-hearted prison minister was found killed in her Kentucky apartment, and Newport police zeroed in on an ex-convict she’d counseled. Thirty years later, the conviction is overturned and the case is once again unsolved. The Cincinnati Enquirer investigates: Was William Virgil wrongly convicted for murder?

Season 1: When Elizabeth Andes was found murdered in her Ohio apartment in 1978, police and prosecutors decided within hours it was an open-and-shut case. Two juries disagreed. The Cincinnati Enquirer investigates: Was the right guy charged, or did a killer walk free?

Great podcast, but the ADs are incredibly disruptive

I get it. Advertising fuels podcasts. But, in the middle of a criminal investigation narrative with an overall soft tone, the abrupt interruptions to squeaky high pitched Madison Reed ads, is incredibly disruptive.
Jarring and alarming and distracting.
Please ya’ll keep up the great work and the compelling podcast, but shift the timing and placements of the ads.

Also Buzz (season 1, episode 6 ) ... guilty!

Basically a monologue

The stories are really good and the reporting is well done. I hate to pick on the narration but I can’t stay focused. It is basically one giant droning monologue (please don’t take personally). The inflection goes up and down like a boat out at sea. I get distracted and all the sudden 20 mins goes by and I’m like what just happened? Rewind back 15 mins to where my mind began wandering. On the flip side it is fantastic to fall asleep to at night if you do that.

Fantastic investigative journalism!

Absolutely fantastic investigative journalism! I listened to the first two seasons and am two episodes into the third season and am already completely drawn into this mystery! Thanks Cincinnati Enquirer for all your hard work!
