interesting story but meh...

The story of Marilyn Monroe is pretty interesting but that’s not really attributable to the podcast, since the podcast is based on one of the most interesting and speculated suicide/murder in the 20th century. Honestly the biggest thing that bothered me about the podcast was the host. She sounded stiff and unconvincing, like she was reading from a script that she didn’t write but maybe she was just nervous. Overall it’s not bad but it’s not the best.

Repetitive

I really liked this until I kept hearing the same sentence over and over making me question if I was on the correct episode

Missed opportunity

I’ve listened to the first three episodes and it’s disappointing. Which is a shame since it could be so much better. Monroe is an interesting character so it shouldn’t be that hard to make an interesting podcast about her, with or without a murder mystery. For a great example of how it might be done really well, check out Missing Richard Simmons. It’s a kind of mystery, although never actually solved, but the narrator is so engaging and tells the story so well that it doesn’t matter that all you do is go for a long enjoyable ride without really getting anywhere. Unfortunately the narrator here is just the opposite, stiff and unnatural and the story as it’s told just isn’t very engaging. That’s a shame, because it could be. Seriously, check out the Richard Simmons one... I’m listening to it a second time, it’s that good.
