See something? Say something.

This story is heartbreaking, but SO important for us to learn from. My takeaways from this excellently produced podcast is that we all need to look out for each other and, more importantly, speak up if we see any signs of abuse. I am so thankful to this podcast for making a difference in the outcome of Lyn Dawson’s story. Even if we don’t want to invade others’ privacy, we all need to do better—if you see something, say something—someone’s life could be at stake. My most sincere thank you to the makers of this podcast!

Would have been a solid 5 if it wasn’t so repetitive.

So repetitive I had to keep checking if I was actually relistening to the same episode over again. Could have easily been a 5 star if it was half the episodes.

Too long

I agree with the other reviews that this podcast was way to long. There was too much about Chris and the school girls. I didn’t need to know about all of that and all effect it has had on all the victims, that is another matter and had nothing to do with Lyn’s disappearance. I hope they figure out what he did to her.
