Well done

Anytime Payne is involved in an investigative report be prepared for a very thorough podcast

Great through episode 4/5

I tried to keep an open mind about this podcast, but the sheer amount of airtime given to wild conspiracy theories became off putting. Perfectly valid to explore the guilt of innocence of Williams for the child murders, but the framing of the investigation felt fact-less and anecdotal. Williams’ relative intelligence or personability has nothing to do with whether he committed some or all of the murders.

Good, but not great.

The podcast was good, but not great. I feel like it’s not enough to just bring good guests to the pod and hope the listener pieces the truth together themselves. To really understand and get into this case, I would have liked to see more original investigative journalism (like the “splash” incident).

I get it’s a very large case with many avenues. It would have been nice if Payne picked one and wove everything into that theory. It seemed like there was no central thesis to this pod, and that makes it tough for me to completely “click into”.
