One of the very best

I’ve listened to a lot of podcasts, and some are boring, some are annoying, some are interesting, and some are riveting, but none compare to this one. It takes the time to research and relay the details necessary for comprehensive understanding, and the narrator is excellent at his job.
I was disappointed when the podcast finished but am confident it will return to finish the story.

Too slow

I loved the content and that it brought to light such a terrible crime. I also think Joanne is a monster. And Chris is the devil. But this podcast was way too repetitive and way too slow and should’ve been done in 5 one hour long well organized episodes.

Good story but repetitive

This could have been 5 episodes instead of what felt like 30 but interesting story.
