Okay

More about the alleged murderer than Jessica the victum.

A different host would help

I couldn’t finish the first episode of this because of the host’s voice; which has a harsh timbre with hypernasal resonance. It’s physically painful to listen to. A podcast series -which is a purely auditory medium- should be hosted by someone with a pleasing (or at least non off-putting) voice.

Trash

This show is trying use a false narrative of racism to claim that the killer is actually innocent. They don’t focus on Jessica at all. This podcast is actively trying to get a killer off scot free purely because it was a black guy who killed a white girl and they don’t like the optics of it.

He’s guilty as sin.
