Needed subtitles

I’ve enjoyed this and Payne’s subsequent podcasts but I must comment that the accents of some interviewees here were unintelligible to these Yankee ears. Wish there were subtitles, because it sounded like juicy stuff.

Highly recommend season 1..

The first season was amazing, easy to follow, kept me hooked, I was always eager to hear the next episode, I found myself loving the the breakdown episodes and Q&As equally as much as the main story line.
The second season has such a great storyline and so much potential to be everything season one was.. but I am disappointed to say, it is underwhelming. I found myself very confused and lost in the stories that were shared, felt there was way too much off topic information, and was struggling to comprehend the phone call dialogue. I feel the podcast has a great team of people behind it, with only the best intentions at heart in sharing these women’s stories. I really hope they can get back to the amazing podcast I loved in season 1. Thank you for a great podcast!

Definitely worth listening to

This is by far one of the most interesting podcasts I’ve listen to. Payne has a lot of good information and I hope they can solve this case. I’m definitely tuned in. It’s worth subscribing! #justiceforTara
