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.

One of my favorites!

I truly enjoy the fact that Emily covers not only US cases, but cases abroad. A lot of True Crime podcasts cover the same cases over and over, each with a different spin. But I’ve learned about cases that I’d never heard of before. In addition, I’ve found it to be very respectful that Emily adds the picture of the victim(s) as the tile for the episode. Many podcasters use only their main podcast name as the tile for every episode. Adding their picture, to me, shows respect and care for each victim. Making each episode personal with a face to put to the case immediately without having to dig. Thank you for that. And thank you for sharing their lives with us in such a touching way. I appreciate it.

I like this true crime podcast because she states facts. She’s not over embellishing with her thoughts, dragging the podcast on.
