Love this podcast

Ed does an excellent job interviewing people involved in missing person cases. Lots of facts given as well as possibilities explore. Very entertaining and thought provoking.

Outstanding and unique missing persons podcast. No plagiarism!!

Update: the Steve Panky interview (Jonelle Matthews case) is easily the most amazing interview I’ve ever heard on a podcast (and I’m including Serial). This is truly groundbreaking. Honestly — the coincidence between the police suddenly contacting him in April and the discovery of her remains in the summer after THIRTY FIVE YEARS is insane.

At this point my gut feeling about Steve is that he has no actual involvement in this case. Of course I could be wrong but I think he is one of those tragic peripheral persons who get entangled in cases like this (as true crime people we can cite many examples), and their lives get destroyed when they don’t have any actual involvement (Richard Jewell, the highly controversial investigations of the scientists accused of the anthrax mailings, etc). Sometimes there are people with “vulnerable” personalities, maybe some mental health issues, who for whatever reason get drawn into cases like this — until physical evidence links him I am saying that I don’t think he is actually connected to the case.

Ed your comments about the remains being BURIED when the ground would have been frozen, with a layer of snow, in December — It gave me chills. I think there are two things that are certain — the person knew her parents were gone (that eliminates Steve, period,honestly). The person may have held her at a secondary location and buried her later — horrible thought? The person definitely knew the area way out there and likely has some connection to it physically (knew the landowner, was a relative, etc). I don’t believe that location was chosen randomly or the timing.

This is easily one of the most unique and important true crime podcasts (it contains ZERO plagiarism, and Ed is one of the hardest-working indie podcasters. He isn’t making piles of $$$ off a podcast that is filled with stupid banter and/or constant advertising for tour tickets etc). Ed covers missing person cases that many people have never heard of and he interviews, in detail, a person or persons closely associated with the missing individuals. Bravo Ed!

Ed acts as a guide, clarifying details for the audience, and framing the cases so that the audience can follow the series of events in each case. This approach breathes life into cases that have been set aside by police and/or forgotten by the general public. Ed is an indie podcaster, and his devotion to this podcast is quite admirable. He’s not a well-paid host of one of the “popular” podcasts supported by production companies and concerned mainly with convention appearances.

Ed’s show, as well as Marissa’s Vanished, make valuable contributions to the true crime world as they do not lazily summarize the work of serious journalists and blatantly steal from other podcasters (sigh — everyone knows which shows I’m referencing) while making stupid jokes or otherwise wasting the time of listeners AND adding almost zero to these tragic cases. Ed does an incredible amount of work contacting the family members and friends of these missing persons, whose cases are from areas across the country and from decades past and present day cases, and Ed interviews these contacts in depth. They are able to talk about the many details of their loved ones, and they go into depth regarding the cases.

Ed deserves an enormous amount of credit for producing such an excellent podcast that actually contributes something instead of featuring two hosts joking and snickering through every epi (how many of these do we need?. Recommended highly!
