Misfits?

First let me say I love this podcast and think it is very well done. I just wish the title of episode 5 could be renamed as to me super insensitive. Many of these missing came across life situations that were totally out of their control. Honestly they probably all did. To someone who lost a son I would be offended to have my child ever described as a “misfit”.

Giving locations and details about tenters

WHY would you ever say several times that a woman alone is sleeping in the woods and give a general area? WHY would you share the decoy camp info? Don’t take away their protective measures PLEASE.

Is the narrator a robot?

It’s a great, well done podcast, but there is a huge difference between the interviews and the narration. It’s didactic and puts me straight to sleep
