Really Interesting Story

Just finished binging the second season and found the story to be incredibly interesting with great content. I’m reserved to give 5 stars based on the delivery because it was a bit much of unnecessary sound effects and some truly bad audio calls. I also think the timeline got messy and the story began to lose momentum, which made me lose interest.

Overall really well done but could’ve been executed better with just letting the story speak for itself. Really enjoyed the listen.

Some scary stuff!!!

Just binged season one & am half way season two. Tara Grinstead’s story was sad enough, but the people involved in the disappearance of Kristal Reidinger seem truly evil. The podcast is very well done but season 2 is really a bit too much. You can back off on the creepy music the content is more than scary enough. Hope I can see it through. Watch yourselves, your stirring up muck in a cesspool!

Too much filler!!

This podcast could have been great. It could have been an amazing 10 episode true crime podcast. Instead it's a bloated, meandering 24 episode mess.
