Very Repetitive

Overall solid content and nicely delivered. My biggest complaint is how much information is repeated each episode. Each episode is 26 to 29 minutes long. This is made up of approximately 2 minutes of promotions for other podcasts and probably 5 minutes in total at the beginning and end of each episode that is repeated. One preparing such a podcast should follow the Serial model. Straight to the point and they rarely repeat information. However, when they do there is an explanation provided (they explain it will be addressed in later episode or explain why they are bringing up again). The Serial podcast assumes the listener has listens to previous podcasts, as they should. Novels do not have a page or two at the beginning of each chapter rehashing what has happened thus far.

Additionally, there is about 5 minutes each episode of nonsense. Either in interviews/snip its from third parties or the host rambling on and on about nothing.

Don’t waste listeners time. If you only have 10 to 15 minutes of content that is ok, embrace it. Shorten each podcast or combine them.

Podcast writing

Absolutely love it. The writing and the music is so professional, the interviews are great and it’s awesome to hear from Law Enforcement’s perspective on cases like this as well, because they are people too and they are working these difficult cases. Well done absolutely love it.

Woefully inept

Overpromises and underdelivers. At around the halfway point into the Zodiac season, they just abandon any pretense of journalism. They dismiss established theories with dubious suspicion and little or no countervailing evidence. Yet they entertain fantastical theories of ghoullish "Zodiologists", none of which could stand under any serious scrutiny. And it has a horrific bed of music.
