Good

I think that more looking needs to go into this “ witness”.

Eh

Unfortunately this is basically just an episode of the first forty eight stretched to its thinnest mixed with some additional case update to make it in to a multi episode podcast. It definitely all could have and probably should have just been a one episode ir show or at the most a two parter. It was odd the amount of time the podcaster spends describing the sisters, almost like it was a fiction author going overboard trying to be poetic when describing female characters. It seemed like the podcaster was attempting to make a the story more romanticized which felt inappropriate really took away from the overall listening experience and unessicarily destracted from the facts of the case.. i mean, seriously.. it’s true crime podcast not your diary.

Background noise

I couldn't continue this Podcast. Then I read a review and realized there are several others who feel the same way. Makes me wonder if the podcaster has ever listened to a podcast herself. Listening to detectives talking, actual interviews, phone ringing, etc, very distracting. How about you report it, not have us listen to interviews with a bunch of background noise. Also sounds like from other reviews, it goes no where.
