ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

This podcast was so awesome. Fantastic, thorough reporting. Vivid storytelling that made me feel like I was apart of the story.

Great podcast

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the backstory and everything surrounding what happened with the DC sniper. I thought the last couple of episodes really rounded out the series. I enjoyed listening to Mildred’s account and how she was able to not only survive, but overcome. I also enjoyed listening to the daughters on how much good can come from bad.

Great If not for the end

This would have been an otherwise great podcast had it not been for the interview of the kids at the end. I have never ever seen this sort of thing done with any other serial killer. Wont be listening to anymore “Monster” podcasts. The interview tone deaf and self serving. Why not give 40 minutes to each victim family to do something similar?
