Good, but...

Way, way, way too long. Eventually had to skip several episode and just go to the last one.

Good, but too long

Almost 5 stars.

The story is captivating. Really really good. But, after 8 , 9, 14 hours.... it drags. Condense, cut out some of the minutia, make this a 5 or 6 episode podcast and you have a 5 star masterpiece.

Too long

If it was 4-5 hour long episodes then it would be 5 stars, but it was waaaay too long and repeated the same information over and over.
