Route 29

I am really picky about podcasts and don’t typically go for things with shorter episodes however I really liked this one. It was easy to listen to and I binged it while housecleaning. I really appreciate that this was a “normal” person telling us about something that interested them instead of some huge production. I wish my hobbies were this cool!

Not much info, lack of organization

A lot of time to convey very little info. Filter out the pointless sounds and repeat info and it’s a short listen. In the creator’s defense they are not journalists- that’s an understatement. It’s disjointed and you are left not knowing what is factual or evidence and what is rumor. It was disappointing, although I have to say I did not hear about most of these cases and I traveled this route many times alone during those years for my work. Scary as f@&!.

Left me wanting more

The podcast just abruptly ends. I feel like there should be a wrap up episode if there isn’t going to be anymore episodes on other cases. I did enjoy it and appreciate the amount of work it must take to produce.
