Copper_topp ,

Wonderful podcast. Heartbreaking story.

I hope she gets justice.

Frustrating Host.

This podcast had the potential to be so great. But the organization was lacking. It jumped around so much that I couldn’t remember who certain people were and when events happened. The host unfortunately ruined it for me. The way she “confronted” Steven with John’s accusations was painful and in no universe would that tactic work. Additionally, why would you go to a Starbucks of all places to record an episode of your podcast? Of course the audio is going to be awful. I also felt she was super biased (don’t worry, I believe Michael Turney did it too) and I even felt that her “interview” with Turney was so whiney it was cringeworthy. Finally, when she spoke with Jamie, I truly felt she was victim blaming - “he could be hurting other children!!!! Do you ever think about that???” Like it’s her responsibility to protect everyone from this man when she herself was never protected.

Excellent and professional

The time the host has devoted to this sadly obscure disappearance of Alissa Turney is impressive. The stepfather is a real piece of work. The host was very brave to talk to him via phone. Listening to that phone call really reveals his mental state, paranoia and his mood swings is stomach turning as he laughs about Alissa “running away.” The host interviewed key people in relation to Alissa
