Great Research

Very good PC. I’ve been listening for awhile and I love it.

Good

Overall a good podcast. I don’t find Marissa to be “monotone” at all. She has a calm voice but uses inflection. The only thing I notice is when she says words like “frushshtrated” and “shtress.” Other than that, it’s well narrated and researched.

She interviews loved ones of the victims, which can be hit-or-miss. Some are good, but many ramble, don’t speak clearly, have bad phone connections, and don’t always answer the questions listeners really have. It would be a five-star podcast if Marissa were to edit those interviews ruthlessly and do more of her own narration to make the timeline clearer and fill in missing details. Sometimes I wish she would press the interviewees to answer tougher questions, but I understand it’s probably difficult to do that without damaging the rapport they’ve built.

I respect the original work that Marissa puts into this show, and hope that she gains listeners from the former fans of the podcast that plagiarized her.

They really need to choose a different person to voice this podcast...
