The loquacious one
Another podcast (only listened to season 4) where the narrator has no investigative skills so the entire podcast is filled with interviews of the victim & suspects families. Therefore there was no forensic or any other type of evidence presented on the case. This is not a true crime podcast, but rather a human interest story about a missing woman. There is nothing wrong with that, but the producers of this podcast shouldn’t market it as a true crime podcast when it is a human interest piece filled with dozens of redundant interviews about the victim-none of which leads to any evidence concerning her being missing. So if u r looking for a true crime podcast that focuses on the case & evidence then skip this one. If u r looking for a human interest podcast about a missing woman that provides no help or evidence in advancing the case , but does a great job through a series of redundant interviews to let the listeners know that Amber “ was a ray of sunshine & a happy person & loved to shop…she had a big heart. “ then this is the perfect podcast for you.
Please please please STOP talking like a robot! Why can’t you talk the way you do with the people you interview???!!!😩😩🤖
