Episode 3 interview

Love the pod, hate the music, good job.
The interview in episode 3 with Bobby makes me so irritated talking about how her private life is private and ‘I can’t remember’ when questioned about her past around the hanging and her thoughts about KW if he was abusive or capable of murder. BOBBY you selfish person, a child is dead so you better start remembering and you don’t have the right to be forgetting at this point.

Nice job!

Stumbled onto this podcast by chance and really enjoyed it! I liked how the chapters were broken up so the story was easy to follow. The reporter did a thorough job with each interview.

Well written

A well written podcast about a suspicious death of a child that’s ruled a suicide. And ends focusing on the grief that comes when an innocent child is taken from this world too soon
