    248: Eddie Werner

    Eddie Werner was going door to door in his neighbourhood in Jackson Township, New Jersey, in the summer of 1997. He was hoping to sell the most candy for his school’s PTA to win the top prize of walkie talkies. That afternoon, however, Eddie failed to return home, prompting a large-scale search that would lead detectives to the dark underbelly of the internet.

Great writing and reportage

I know Emily contributes to They Walk Among Us and she is a great writer and prolific storyteller. I know she’s from Northern Ireland and I’m familiar with the accent, but there’s something off about her cadence and the rhythmic pauses in her narration that go beyond a lilt and simply become singsong and frankly annoying. I keep listening from time to time but can’t subscribe as I would not be able to listen regularly. I’ll buy her books and appreciate her work elsewhere. I think that with a bit of coaching she might give a more polished presentation and that would be wonderful.

Sorry, I can’t take the ads. Ugh, they’re awful, mostly pseudoscientific garbage that she reads out with a straight face. I guess it’s one way to get subscribers.

Well done

Very well researched, great story telling and LOVE the accent.

Nullity ,

Shows is great!

Every time I hear the intro music it sounds like a 1980s p0rn soundtrack like the kind that you would get in one of the motels on airline highway (where often the old-school TV preachers used to “hang out”).
