I like it, but repeated information is annoying

Nice voice and well told but the exact same information is repeated in different episodes, to the point that I thought I had mistakenly relayed the wrong episode.

Haunting

Such an incredible story, I was blown away I had never heard of it. Literally a parents nightmare and such a testimony to a family and love. The ladies who host did such a tremendous job weaving the story. I couldn’t stop listening.

Well researched but lost their way

I really enjoyed this podcast and appreciated all the work to develop but it would repeat and meander a bit, especially in later episodes. With a tighter outline this could have been two episodes less and they wouldn’t have lost any content. Like others said, I thought I was replaying an old episodes when I would hear interviews and such verbatim again and again.
