This true crime podcast places the listener in Montgomery County, Maryland on October 2nd, 2002 when an unidentified sniper began randomly killing people going about their daily lives.

Well done and balanced!
I’ve listened to a lot of different crime podcasts but the journalistic work that went into this made it excellent. I was riveted. I really hope they start a new season.
Pick and Choose
The episodes relating to the actual crimes are very well done. But do yourself a favor and skip any episode devoted to John Mohammed's ex-wife. The woman is a huge drama queen and the amount of air time the podcast creators give her is annoyingly excessive.
Very well done podcast. I learned a lot I didn’t know, even though I followed this story closely as it was happening. One thing I wanted to add is that I do not believe Malvo should ever be released from prison. I can give him the benefit of feeling remorse, I can even extend the benefit that he was manipulated to do what he did, but there is a cost for a person’s actions. He can’t remorse his way out of the lives he took. He has to own that for the rest of his life. We are not safe as a society with lee malvo on the streets.
