What a great podcast

The one and only reason I give it 4 stars, is that it could have been told in way less episodes. I’ve listened through twice and found myself skipping over lots of things to get to the meat of it. Great, fascinating story. I only hope that Chris is convicted and Lynette's family gets some closure.

Soft Soil

This podcast should have been named “Soft Soil” because if I got a penny for every time those words are spoken on this podcast, I’d be a billionaire. OMG they say it so much... that being said, it’s overall a really interesting, well researched, THOROUGH podcast. No stone left unturned. Actually maybe they should have left a few stones untouched because it might be a little too thorough. Ahhhp! There they go with the soft soil again —— eep!!
