Great podcast

Great investigative journalism. But the sound quality is pretty poor. But regardless, great job and hope there is a season 2.

So Close

I like the idea and the “disclaimer” the podcaster gives about it being an amateur investigation. I can also imagine it was a ton of work. I just couldn’t understand what was being said in most recorded phone calls. I had to skip ep 4 because it only sounded like background noise. By ep 7, I was pretty lost and couldn’t even tell you many details of the case. I stopped listening and wrote this review at that time. I hope there is a second season with good audio.
