Jon Ronson is a great storyteller

Sad story respectfully told

This should be called “last days of August because of Kevin”

Although I did like aspects of this podcasts, I must say that I grew more and more disappointed as I listened. This podcast is more about Kevin, her husband than it is about her. Jon really tries to play out how he is the one most responsible. Kevin sounds like a bad husband. But that’s it. I don’t believe he drove her to kill herself. She obviously had bad mental health issues. Her marriage obviously didn’t help, but to make a 7 episode podcast basically about how she killed herself because her husband was distant is foolish and irresponsible. If this podcast wanted to do any justification for her, they should of delved more into mental illness, bullying and all of the relationships she had with people and not make this about her husband.

Tragic story well told

Do not agree with the people who don’t like narrators voice - I like it! I really enjoy his style and have listened to his other stuff too.i thought this was sensitive to the tragic story and subject matter and well done. Keep the good work coming
