Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

Great podcast!

I really enjoy this podcast a lot! She narrates this in a very matter-of-fact way. She isn’t monotonous in her delivery and the courtroom recordings are nice to listen to in my opinion. I really enjoy everything about this podcast.

Another thing I really like is that you’re not being convinced to feel a certain way about these cases. She’s telling you the facts as they present themselves, no bias and no convincing.

Good show, but...

Having to spend a ton of time listening to bad recordings (ex, 119) — completely exhausting. 148. Yet more crappy recordings. 131. “The party went on until the early morning hours... until shortly after midnight”... ??? What?! 139. Oh more crappy recordings. We are constantly subjected to having to listen to them! Tip: when the recordings are not good, narrate them! It’s such a waste of time, filler!. Finally, this is a peeve, I don’t like listening to all the sobbing testimony given in the courtroom. Whether it be victim, relative of victim, perp, etc. Many episodes drag us through all this playback and it’s not necessary. Really. The comments could be encapsulated into one segment narrated by the host in three minutes. This is padding. We shouldn’t be subjected to intervals of horrible recordings, then the host translating them. It’s duplication of effort. Just narrate them. Alright already?

Episode 198. How many times do you have to reference “their beloved cabin near the lake”? Did Chandler really walk into the police station to report his parents missing while they were planning to visit, “our beloved cabin by the lake”? Why infuse the story with projections?

Viola Dean ,

Matter of fact presentation

I love the matter of fact presentation of these class. They are well researched and lots of inside information from people actually familiar with these cases. I often get annoyed by female true crime podcasters because they are either super dramatic or ditzy, but Jillian is professional and intelligent. Highly recommend this podcast.
