Interesting subject, better execution needed

It is such an interesting topic with great interviews. You can tell their strength is in their interview skills. However, the story telling leaves something to be desired. They assume that everyone know the basic facts of the case. I would appreciate if in season three they go back to tell the story, lay out the facts, and then introduce interviews. Create a narrative story that will engage listeners.

Additionally, there is an editing issue with the episode Turbo. It appears as though it was cut in half and the end plays first. I actually relistened starting half way through, played it to the end, and then started it 0 seconds.

It is a shame that they pulled most of the first season off of Apple Podcasts and only made it available through stitcher, but I understand the potential business decision behind it.

Da Vinci episode

Good content, turbo is great!. Need to edit out the parts where one of the hosts completely misses the story and it has to be told all over again....feels amateurish at points. Great storytelling by turbo!

I think Tim's voice sounds like a Lance.

I have always enjoyed their slightly off kilter banter. Especially Lance who jumps right in and then works out his thought.
