More info needed
I like everything about this podcast but the length of the episodes. Both the female and male narrator do a nice job, you don’t waste time talking about off topic things before the podcast begins , but the episodes are too short and it sounds “ hurried” like you have a time limit and you’re trying to keep under it.
Amazing show! 🔥 Well researched and I wish I could give more stars!
Short, on topic, not my style
This podcast might be great to trigger the memory of a potential witness of an unsolved crime from decades past. I prefer a longer format with the whole sordid tale. The podcast has a tight focused narrative which works well for this style of storytelling. If you like to hear about the last moments people were seen over the course of history, this podcast is for you!
