Frustrating

I just finished the pod cast & heard this story for first time today. I have a burning question/observation/suggestion about this Jerry King guy. Try saying his name with little to no movement of your mouth. Sounds dead on ERIC!!
I’m shocked nobody said anything about that. Was Jerry King in her phone? Did he know her?
I’m very very curious about this. I believe she could have been saying first & last name.
Jerry King comes out as Eric. Try it yourself.

Jessica chambers

How embarrassing for the expert speech therapist that came in on the second trial and said it was impossible that Jessica chamber said the name Eric well then how and was she able to say the name Jessica Chambers when they asked what her name was please and how was it that the defense lawyer didn’t ask that in the rebottle how could she say Jessica Chambers but yet you’re saying she couldn’t say Eric none of these people seem all that right none of them like the first jury that didn’t understand what unanimous meant Mississippi must explain it all

Way, way too long

I have to say the story is very interesting and I really wanted to know more details. However, I was shocked after the first episode finished that it is a SEVEN episode podcast. This means it would take you at least 3 hours to get to the end. Do not waste your time. Might as well watch a documentary for less than half of that time. This whole story can be told in 30-45 minutes. The producers tried to milk the story all the way cash out on more ads but that made it so boring and the pacing was so slow. If u like and listen to crime podcasts, you know this should be a one episode story. My condolences to the family of the victim.
