Great story telling-

I really enjoyed the series: it really gave me empathy for the people and families involved. And it was such a wild story - the authors did a great job contextualizing what led to the suicide.
Great job.
My only complaint is the frequent long pauses and music insertion: I found it annoying because at times I was not sure if the podcast had stopped- and it just seemed to add time for no reason at all.
