Could have been so much more

The story is very interesting, the podcast is NOT. It’s storytelling not an investigation (which was what I was looking for). The hosts are merely telling things that has already been reported and told. It is not until the epilogue that they drop tidbits of information not included in the story that really should be followed up on and investigated. They do a disservice to the subject matter by not truly doing any real investigating. They repeatedly call what they are doing “investigating” but it is not. It’s storytelling only and mediocre at best.

Yikes

Took them until the end of episode 5 to mention any tangible evidence for their thesis, and they weren't responsible for its revelation - someone else entirely uncovered it. Also, they got interviews with almost nobody they attempted to contact.

A bunch of blowhards

These women come off as nothing but a bunch of know it all blowhards who think they know better than EVERYONE. They come off presenting as LA elitists who just have to set country bumpkins straight. I ended up stopping this podcast. This podcast could have been done well, but these women allowed their bias to get in the way of professionalism.
