(As many others have reviewed) REDUNDANT

Great story and an interesting case! However, I am mind-blown the narrator himself didn’t snooze off recordings this series. The amount of things repeated over and over again in every episode is astounding. Really hope their next series will be condensed.

This story touched my heart

What an amazing job you are doing of bringing the injustice of the past to light and giving these deserving people some closure. On their behalf I also thank you.

Justice for Lyn

This podcast can be a little hard to listen to at times, but not because of the length of episodes and repetition of facts. It’s difficult to listen to because an entire community failed Lyn Dawson & her girls. I hope that justice is finally served.

For those of you boohooing about the fact Hedley repeats facts and the episodes are drawn out, if you are actually following this case it would make absolute sense. Hedley has to repeat facts because there is a huge level of incompetency involved with some of these authorities and these facts must absolutely be repeated, else they could have been swept away like Lyn was for 36 years. Praying for peace for Lyn’s girls, friends, and family.
