All but the music

Agree with a lot of other reviews. I enjoyed the raw reality but I HATED the music. I’m an easy grader so still have 5 stars and would recommend but the music was excruciating.

Happy Face

This Podcast has been done with such respect to the victims and in such a concise and detailed manner. Enjoy it very much. Also I live the music played throughout, it adds to the level of emotion and intensity of the topic at the time it is played. Well done!
