Love the perspective

I’ve been pretty fascinated with Amanda since her case was in the headlines. I never believed she was guilty, since I’ve been on the wrong side of lies about me. Nothing as horrible as what she had, but people can be completely nuts when they come up with their impressions of people they don’t know.

I love true crime, but don’t love how everyone assumes guilty until proven innocent and I see that over and over with the discussion groups for the other true crime podcasts I listen to. I hope that there will be more stories that are brought to our attention to show just how our system is not fair and impartial. Putting someone innocent in jail is worse than the guilty going free and these stories have turned me into someone who would be a very hard sell for conviction if I was on a jury.

Such a good podcast!!

Love love love! And it makes it even more enamoring that Amanda has been in some of their shoes so she is easily relatable to them. She is an excellent sorry teller as well with a very comforting voice.

All About Her

I am mixed about this series. I have listened to all of the second installment. But Amanda compares everything to her own case and situation. She also contradicts herself. She doesn’t like to be seen as a victim but she constantly brings up how hard her imprisonment was. I just started the third installment and she says something along the lines of “Just like my trial 20 years later...” quite a reach to bring it back to her. The cases are interesting but be ready to hear a lot about Amanda’s case.
