Terrible

I have listened to a lot of true crime podcasts over the years and this one is by far the worst.

Every cardinal podcasting sin you can think of, this series commits. 30 minutes of actual true crime stretched out into 10 hours? Check. Hours of unnecessary interviews that lead to nothing? Check. Glacial pacing? Check. Attributions of malice and wrong doing to a new person every episode only to exonerate them the next episode? You got it. Do they actually solve the case? Hah, of course not.

What makes this podcast truly terrible though is the narrator, David. To be clear, this is not a podcast about a child abduction. This is a podcast about a man child who is either genuinely seeking self actualization through a 40 year old child abduction cold case, or who is cynically using said tragedy for self aggrandizement. Nothing about this series is journalism; everything is told through David’s perspective and we get to hear every inappropriate, irrelevant anecdote that comes to his mind.

David tells us how he felt personally called to solve this case because he grew up in the same town. He frequently uses language invoking destiny and fate to aggrandize insert himself into the story of this child’s abduction. He tells us about his dreams. His DREAMS!

Over and over again David bemoans “oh what am I doing trying to solve this 40 year old case!” But nonetheless conveys a strong, conceited sense of purpose that he will finally bring closure to the victims parents. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t. What he succeeds at is using their child’s abduction for his own gain.

This podcast is his journey and quite frankly I find it cynical, self indulgent and disgusting.

Shines light on important issues!

Great show and reporting! So happy someone is taking the time to discuss these cases of missing women.
