Five Star Story, 2 Star Journalist

I have been fascinated in this story since I was 12 and joined the Civil Air Patrol (a search and rescue program mentioned a handful of times on the show. I love the access to voices as perspectives that have been virtually unreachable for decades.
HOWEVER, the journalist/ narrator consistently comes off as self-important and holier than thou it preachy. He often touches on how he is not cold and detached as he insists the tradition of journalism requires. He’s ~human/ special or unique~ because he posits his own opinions and feelings all over the podcast.
It’s also fairly obvious that he doesn’t want the simplest, most probable answer to be true because it’s not as sexy as a bombing. He contradicts himself and performs superhuman mental gymnastics to argue that point.
I love the story so much which is the reason I give even 4 star, but the narrator has got to go.

Well Done

Very deep dive into an older, very strange and mysterious case of a missing plane. This podcast goes to the people and places of all of the events connected to the plane, the passengers, and the loved ones they left behind.

Very Intriguing

I had no previous knowledge of the Missing Plane even though Two Political Figures one being the House Speaker from the US were involved. It was a very interesting Podcast. I (my opinion) felt it was Thought provoking and well written (spoken) & edited. It’s hosted by a Journalist and it’s given in its own rightful context. It’s facts, suspicions and everything in between.
