Painfully Repetitive and Terribly Biased

One every single episode (I’ve listened to 11 so far), the host just repeats the exact same information over and over again with different guests. I’ve heard the same dozen stories at least a dozen times. It’s truly bad storytelling for a professional journalist. She really seems to revel in the gossip of it all—often sharing tidbits with people who didn’t know and almost gushing at the chance to tell them about a dead woman’s consummation of her relationship. It’s very disturbing.
She also demonizes and belittles Christians and homeschoolers with sweeping stereotypes. She gives the classic “socialization” argument and says, “when you’re homeschooled, you just don’t have the experience of being amongst your peers.“ Seems like maybe the “investigative journalist” would avoid such stereotypes and maybe spend some time with homeschool families who don’t have a psychopath or two in the family. There are plenty of awkward, anti-social murderers in traditional schools. I get that it’s unique that Rachel was homeschooled. But I sense there is a definite outdated stereotype running throughout the podcast.
Do yourself a favor and pick one of the better true crime podcasts out there.

Highly subjective, biased and gossipy

I wouldn’t call this journalism by any means. The interviewer is highly subjective, biased and often gossipy. It is a fascinating and tragic case and this podcast does do a good job of getting inside info on the people involved.

Outstanding!

I loved every episode! I don’t know where the negative comments came from, but I saw nothing wrong with Linda’s behavior! Very professional!
