Not for everyone

I’m on S1E3 and I just can’t get past all the interviews and stories.
This podcast most likely focuses on the stories about the victims and not what happened during the investigation. So if that is your thing then you may like this.
I however do like to hear about the investigation because that’s basically what these stories end up being, sadly. A little back story is fine and hearing about the days leading up to the situation is a good part to hear.
I’m not getting much of that with this one and reading other comments about season 3, sounds to be the same.
Not for everyone.
