Fantastic so Far

I do absolutely love the podcast and the idea. I wanted to be a criminal profiler when I was young, and still love to educate myself on crimes and the people who commit them. I also love the fact that they have a lay-person (Lisa). It gives Laura and Jim an insight into what the general population thinks and feels. Just kind of wish Jim wasn’t so hard on her. I’m from NJ, and I’m very aware that people from our area get loud when they’re passionate. I’m by no means trying to bash him for that. I just wish he would listen to what Lisa has to say, and if he has an objection or a reason why her views may be wrong, that he took a second to remember she’s not trained the way he is, and to use it as a teaching moment rather than getting up in arms.

Finally had to delete

I think maybe Jim Clemente needs a vacation. He appears angry and condescending to anyone who hasn’t had the exact same education and experience as he or Laura had. It sounds like he feels inadequate and is always trying to talk himself up by talking others down, especially Lisa. I usually just end up feeling bad after listening.

Interesting...

I do like the podcast. I must admit that I admire the expertise of Jim and Laura and hope to one day be like them, and although she irritates me, I can see how people like the naïveté of Lisa. She seems to ask questions that everyday people who are not true crime addicts or law experts would ask. It confuses me how she, in the line of work that she is in but seems so...reactive to some of the descriptions that Jim and Laura share of murders and the like. I could do without the whole “owie, owie, owie” thing that she does when she hears something that she doesn’t want to hear (you know, that sharp inhale that people tend to do when they stub their toe for example). I don’t think that Laura and Jim are condescending; I personally think that they are experts in their fields and simply correct a lot of the WRONG things and misconceptions that Lisa brings to the table as a person who is not an expert. I think of it as a parent teaching his child about the dangers of sticking her finger into a sockets (and no, that is not a dig at anyone. Take the example as the example). I am only in the 2016 podcasts and have heard quite of few of the more recent ones. Even though she irritates me sometimes, I hope Lisa continues to share the “novice” point of view that people may have while hearing the podcast so that experts can continue explaining in depth how the legal system actually operates.
