Okay podcast

I’ve binged most of this podcast, it’s interesting because I haven’t heard the case details elsewhere, but it’s poorly produced. If anyone involved in the production reads this, please add ad transitions. One second I’m listening to the tragic story of this poor girl who was burned alive and then without a beat I’m hearing a jubilant ad for Martinis and Murder. It is very disconcerting. I enjoy true crime podcasts with a bit of humor, but the poor transition made the ad seem out of place and in poor taste.

Also, like other viewers have mentioned, inserting the fact that Jessica was blonde on top of all of her other graces sounds like you’re saying that her blondness (and, by proxy, whiteness) makes her loss even more tragic than that of someone who isn’t blonde or white. When the lawyer in the sound clip tacked on the fact that she was blonde it made my head hurt, but was less jarring because the narrator had done it in the very first episode. What this girl went through was horrible and anyone who experiences this is worthy of sympathy, regardless of their hair color.
