    When freelance writer Louise Ellis disappeared after leaving her Ottawa home on April 22 1995, the person leading the search for her was her devoted partner, Brett Morgan.

My favorite podcast

I have listened loyally to this podcast almost since it started. It is the best true crime podcast I have found in terms of research and straightforward case presentation with no extra chit chat. I also appreciate the presentation of facts without personal opinions or bashing of law enforcement, which often occur on other podcasts. However, I will say I have paid for the subscription for over a year now and don’t really feel I get the content to justify the cost. I also notice that old cases are often repeated and presented as new cases with new case numbers. This may fool newer listeners, but as someone who has listened since the beginning, it is frustrating to get a few minutes in and realize I have already heard the case. I will always listen, but am considering cancelling my premium and am hoping to see less recycled content

Monotone hard to listen !

Story interesting enough I guess but the delivery make it pretty boring to listen to.

Something happened ..

I listened to the first 5 episodes on the East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer and they were riveting. Like really great. Just tried to listen to the final episode (which came several years later) and the narrator sounds terrible! Not sure if it’s a new person or what - the voice sounds more high pitched and like he’s a robot. He. Pronounces. Every. Word. Like. This. It’s terrible! I couldn’t listen anymore after about 10 minutes…which was so deflating bc I thought this would be a great episode that ties it all together. I’m. Super. Bummed. But. Oh. Well., moving. On. To. Find. A. New. Podcast now…
