Good but too much bias

I have been listening to this podcast since day 1. I find the story fascinating but what I am frustrated with is the following:

1) constantly bashing LAPD for not being forthcoming with information. This is standard during an OPEN MURDER INVESTIGATION. Is it honestly expected that they will give the public all of the facts while they are trying to piece together the information?
2) There is far too much sympathy for the boyfriend. I understand trying to stay neutral while the story is unfolding but in these situations the loved one is the perpetrator. Of course his family is going to defend him. Of course they are going to tell you he didn’t do it.
3) The victim blaming is unreal. I don’t care if she was “crazy” he could have walked away and stopped cheating on his fiancé. There are two sides to every story and unfortunately the real victim isn’t here to give hers.

The jury is still out

I got hooked on this podcast and now after nine Episodes I can’t help but feel like the journalism was very sloppy. A lot of things reported don’t make sense or gaping holes. I think this guy could be good but he needs to learn empathy and there are WAY too many commercials. Did I mention WAY too many commercials? Overall, I enjoyed listening on a long trip!

Love It!

I was hooked from the first episode I binged listened in like 3 days. Which is good for me because I listen in the car. I’m waiting for the ending but gonna be missing it when all is said and done. Hope Neil starts another true crime podcast!!
