This podcast offers insights not captured in the Netflix documentary, “The Staircase”. The additional research and interviews helped inform my opinion on this fascinating case. That being said, the production of the podcast was clunky at times. It felt like someone who doesn’t understand what a podcast is produced this podcast. It’s like my Dad made this podcast. The constant reminders of what you’re listening to in the beginning, middle and end of a 30 minutes nearly every episode was excessive. I didn’t understand why 3 different people with varying American accents had to say, “Five Live”. The repetitious recaps were completely unnecessary. I’d still recommend it if you’re interesting in learning more about this entrancing case.

Incredibly biased

After watching the documentary and reading into the case myself, this podcast is incredibly biased and doesn’t give the full facts on both sides. Too much time is given to Kathleen’s sister, who I don’t find credible at all. Not saying he is 100% innocent, just saying way too much reasonable doubt even in the first trial for a conviction. Home cooking.

This podcast is the definition of mediocre.
Some parts are well done.
The pacing is terrible.
There is a lot of repetition.
The case has been covered much better elsewhere.
