Too long

While I love true crime and I’m already sad when the end of a show comes, I’m on episode 8 and questioning if I need to listen any further. It’s been great so far, but it’s becoming repetitive and tiresome.

Really Good/A Suggestion

I’m still on episode 5, so far reading reviews I agree with both sides that A) this is a really good podcast on an interesting topic where the reporter is obviously making a concentrated effort of being meticulous and thorough in telling all sides of the story and B) that there is definitely some repetition and the audio isn’t stellar.

If you like the kind of podcast that is thorough beyond belief, I suggest the podcast COLD. I think that it’s a better example of what the reporter here was attempting to do (although I should warn you, it’s definitely a marathon)

Great, engaging podcast. Important to keep in mind that Joanne Curtis was a prisoner who was isolated by her captor. Look there to direct any anger.
