Love Josh M, hate how short these are!

I love Dateline, and Mr. Mankiewicz is a joy to the ears. I was excited for this podcast. But while I love a short podcast sometimes - say with 15 minutes left at work - these are too short. The production values are all I’d expect. I just wish fore more! Consider changing how Season 2 is presented?

I don’t understand the point of this podcast

You could have just listened to the Dateline episode about this case and gotten the entire story! There was nothing new!

Enjoyed it

I enjoyed this podcast! Loved hearing Manky give his opinion on things. I actually listened to each episode more than once because I got the people’s names mixed up! Plus, I needed to refresh before hearing the next one. Make more of these!
