Appreciation!

Listened to the whole first season and I’ll keep this short and sweet. I was most pleasantly surprised by the detail of work you put into this case. I appreciate a good mystery ( true life) and love the efforts to solve cold cases, both for the families and sake of the public. Keep up the hard work and I’ll be following closely each season. Looks like I have many more to look forward too already!

Delia’s storytelling capabilities are top-notch

Delia is such a thorough investigator. I studied journalism in college and chose to focus more on digital marketing in my graduate studies. It makes me so happy to listen to Delia’s work and she’s an amazing example of how the world still needs talented journalists in a world where newspapers are becoming obsolete. She’s a great role model for college students studying journalism and I wish I was aware of her talent back when I was finishing up my journalism degree in 2016. Looking forward to future Counter Clock seasons!!

Tough Listen

Season one. Delia narrates with an unusual “tabloid tv newscast” cadence which makes this a tough listen. Most podcast narration carries the inflection of casual conversation, not here. She also has a habit over sensationalizing even the least important parts of the story. 13 parts could’ve been condensed to 2. Meh.
