Move along haters

For those of you 1-star haters moaning and finding so many faults with this podcast, maybe keep in mind that what Laura is doing is helping grieving families and lighting a fire under some non-priority cases around missing people. Season 1 alone has reignited the case about Lisa Young and every one of these families and victims deserve justice.

Thank you Laura. Keep up the great work (& RCMP let’s arrest Red Jag Guy already!)

Captain Slur (Mike) sure could use an AA meeting (S4E2)

YIKES

Not an Investigative Podcast

Sorry to say I had to quit. I made it 4 episodes of season 1 and that’s it for me. The most we get in 4 episodes is a basic recounting of the crime and Lisa’s backstory, which is great, but that should be 1/2 of episode 1. I have found the telltale sign of an amateur podcast is that they haven’t learned to edit. It is not worthwhile to replay ENTIRE conversations. Good podcasts edit ruthlessly & use narration to give more insight. This does neither.
