One of the best true crime podcasts out there

Cawley takes a deep, complex and tragic case and examines it in detail, approaching his subject matter with empathy and an open mind. I hope he’ll do more true crime podcasts in the future.

Top notch podcast

I’m a huge fan of Crime Junkies and heard their episode on this family and comments on their FaceBook post led me here. I enjoy the primary sources with the many recordings of family, friends, detectives and Susan and Josh themselves. Such a tragic story and this podcast does an excellent job of telling true story and has me gripped and wanting to hear more even knowing though I already know the outcome. Highly recommended.

Superlative storytelling

I’ve heard this story told a number of different ways over the years and it has always stayed with me. Thank you Dave for all of the work and thought you put into this podcast. Also, thank you for having the courage as a journalist to share your own theory and opinion on the case. I sincerely hope listeners commit to and spread your proactive message.
