Repetitive filler content

Too much filler content that is recycled from previous episode. Could have easily made fewer episodes with greater impact.

About 12 min of new info each show

The first at least 7 min of each episode is review. Along with at least another 2-5 min during the show being replay of previous audio. Probably a total of 1 hour of information divided into the podcasts.

Also, it seems more of a report than an investigation. More reading and playing if previous people’s work instead of trying to rely on their on investigating. And the reporting they do Donos trash. ‘Such and such was accused of stalking by an ex’. Not charged or anything, no interview of the accuser, nothing. Trash. Holy crap. Episode five moves their reporting from trash to irresponsible. I hope these people aren’t really reporters in AUS. Wow. My rate went from 4 to 3 to 1. I’d really like to know more about this story, unfortunately, you won’t find it here.

Wow. Episode 6 they give key info they had the whole time that changes a bunch of what you thought you knew. Not sure what their point was to do this, unless it was to make the reporters look incredibly clueless. If that was the aim, the nailed it. And then later on it the episode they prove how daft they are. They want to focus on some one who wasn’t even a suspect until one of the CURRENT SUSPECT says she saw a car that doesn’t even really look like his. There is zero even circumstantial evidence. And they keep bringing up this stalking BS that sounds like his ex was a gfs house that didn’t like him, and when he tried to talk to her the gf called the cops. They didn't even talk to the ex. This was such a horribly researched and investigated True Crime podcast.
