Not true crime 🤷🏽‍♀️

It was entertaining but I mean... why market it as true crime?

Morally Questionable

Our minds process things differently when they’re presented as fact, even if some will say that it’s “clearly fake”. It doesn’t matter. This was presented as something true, and there will always be some people who won’t be able to tell the difference. This can be damaging - Reminiscent of the BBC Halloween fake-special controversy. The voice acting fails at accurately imitating a True Crime Podcast, the characters aren’t really interesting. Fails as both fiction and nonfiction, committing to neither and poorly imitating both. Would have enjoyed if it was clearly fiction from the beginning. That way, it can go all in on capturing reality without hurting people.

It says fiction at the top.

It clearly says fiction. Right at the very top. Don’t give a bad review because you neglected to actually read. And this was sooooooooo good!
