Omg

This is a disgusting podcast. It is murder porn. Gross and disrespectful to murder and rape victims. Pathetic.

Too arbitrary. I was done after episode 1.

I read the review, and it sounded exactly like what I wanted: Analyzing the mindset and situations of a killer.
What I got, was a woman who used clipped and cropped audial interviews and inserted them in a context that supported the opinion and idea she wanted to put upon the listener.

I was done after the first episode.
