Tragic real life events... podcast way too long

This is a VERY tragic story. So incredibly sad and my respects go out to the family of Lynn. As a podcast, sooooooo longgggggg. Very repetitive. Points & facts are repetitive. Drawn out for sure. I’ve skipped over certain points I’ve heard multiple times throughout the podcast.

Jjjrrrkkkk ,

(As many others have reviewed) REDUNDANT

Great story and an interesting case! However, I am mind-blown the narrator himself didn’t snooze off recordings this series. The amount of things repeated over and over again in every episode is astounding. Really hope their next series will be condensed.

This story touched my heart

What an amazing job you are doing of bringing the injustice of the past to light and giving these deserving people some closure. On their behalf I also thank you.
