As good as Up and Vanished!

I began listening to season 1 yesterday and I’m hooked! This is just as good as my favorite unsolved crime podcast, up and vanished.
Amber Hunt’s in depth investigation skills are pretty impressive and she definitely keeps me hanging on her every word. I recommend listening for sure!
I’m on episode 3 so far and if the maintenance worker didn’t do it, I’d be super surprised!!

Season 1 good, season 2 not so much

I binged season 1 and found it slow but the story was intriguing enough to keep me interested. Season 2, however, just DRAGGED. I kept on waiting for her to get to the point and it never came; i was constantly questioning what the content presented had to do with the subject? Just way too slow moving for me.

Self-congratulatory twaddle

Recognizing one's own narcissism is not a virtue. Early on in the podcast, Amber Hunt acknowledges that it will seem a bit odd to listeners that she uses 1st person pronouns in telling the story. This is because, as they (mostly she) have done all the heavy lifting, it wouldn't make sense if she were to speak objectively. Poppycock. There's absolutely no difference in this story from any other true crime podcast. The hypocrisy reaches a crescendo in the follow-up episode, when she nearly comes to tears about how this has affected every aspect of her life.

Perhaps all this could be forgiven, but for the shoddy presentation. For all the giddiness and mirth in interviews (her M.O. apparently, to break the ice), she clumsily talks over people, and shows very little journalistic aptitude. On top of that, there's very little of substance. Two entire episodes are dedicated to "other suspects", a detour into serial killers that, to her credit she admits, has virtually nothing to do with this case. Just filler.

I made it to the end, just barely. I'll give Season 2 a miss.
