Disappointing

It seems they just wanted to jump on the podcast bandwagon but don't come close to others. First if you've heard even a little about this story, especially recently, you' probably won't learn anything new from here; they rehash info and it actually seems like they're reading articles about the story and when I say reading, I mean reading; flat tone, almost computer voice. The tone is so unengaging that at one point I had to force myself to keep listening just in the hopes I'd hear something new. They don't really interview anyone (maybe 1 or 2) and seem to only play clips from long ago interviews. I wouldn't ever suspect this came from an investigative reporter, there's just no investigating. They didn't speak to people even remotely close to the case for insight and there are still so many unanswered questions. If you want to know about this case just google and you'll get to read for yourself what they read to you and you'll get to hear the audio clips from kamiyah and her parents that have already played all over. Very very disappointed. Not everyone can make a good podcast.

Just Bad.

I love true crime and investigative podcasts, so I was very interested in this story. It's too bad that I couldn't get through more than 15 minutes of the first episode. This podcast is terribly produced. The sound quality is poor and the reporter's narration is monotone and amateurish. It sounds as if she is reading to a child, very slow and almost mechanical. You can hear the sounds her mouth makes (licking lips, etc.) and it really grossed me out. It's difficult to make out what Shanara is saying in the interview clips. I understand she is emotional, but they either needed to clean up and clarify the audio, or the reporter needed to recap what Shanara was saying.

An incredible story by an incredible journalist

Kelly’s work here is riveting. I could not get through the episodes fast enough. The fact that she was able to get these key players to be interviewed is a testament to her brilliance as a reporter and compassion for her fellow human. The research here paints a rich picture, and lends itself to a captivating story well-told.
